  1. Hell of a nice guy too...bought my Alembic copy to help me raise $$$ for a tranny repair.
    Here's an idea: somebody's gotta design a bass we can get to the gig/grocery store/office on so we can sink less money into our cars and more into our toys (grin).

    Take a look at these photos, they were taken to get measurements of the EB3 to make sure the D. Huff was as close to the original as possible.

    Thought this would be of interest to those bass nuts out there. Heck, you can even make your very own replica!

    Did someone say purple sparkley :D click for my Purple sparkley bass

    Great choice Mike! you'll have to let us know how it plays when you get it.

    thanks for the inspiration!!! (Ragin' Full on is still the biggest bass album to me. it's my reference point for everything else)

    hi,

    thanks for the kind words.

    wow, that's an intense looking bass you got there! incredible. I'll make sure there's a shot of the purple plower when it gets to me. I've already played it - up in seattle on the last tour and it was great!

    "hagabard celine," huh? so you've read "the illuminatus trilogy" then? great, great read. very funny.

    Darrin Huff is awesome....his work is beautiful and he's really nice, I see him going far in the world of bass luthiere(is that the correct plural?)
    I want him to make me a fretless 4-string, but not for a while, he's really backed up right now.
    the purple plower is sweet, I never thought purple could look so good on a bass, I really like ryans bass...it is beautiful with a capital Beaut-

    Yes, I liked it. In the 3 years I've used that quote in either email or forums you're the second to remark... the first person only asked who he is :)

    Thanks again Mike

    hi,

    I think they're only being sold in japan right now. I'll check w/fender.

    I recorded w/it at a session for a pedro singer-songwriter named eric binkley last week. tracked great!

    folks,

    sorry to respond to my own post but I just wanted to let you all know I got word from fender that the mustang bass was just re-introduced in the u.s. this last summer so it's no longer only available in japan. they are built there though. they did a good job.
