    :D took them right off the man's table :eek:


    ;)

    I must respect all that AJ has done for the world of the Elite Low End, I feel he has raised the bar on the Bass community...

    but I don't think Mr. Gore invent the internet either.

    Nice pair of basses Hman!

    I don't think Chris and Carey are big guys...so must be a light weight division...huh...maybe that's why they both built a very light weight bass and very balance to fit their comfort!

    Both are extremely high quality and detail to their ART! Yes, I call it an "ART". I just like to put them together to look at them. Each has its unique tone. The Aero in the Benie is more "high fi" tone than the Nordie. Both of the preamp will give you some amazing sounds from both basses. I like the finger style tone from the Benie and the slap tone from the Nordie.

    So I call it a draw. Well, my playing sucks...but at least I look great trying:D

    LMAO !!!! im gonna sufficate you with my Depends!! used!!!!:eek:
     
  18. Those two basses just make me want to go out and order a single cut. They are just beautiful.

    Does anyone know what the wood used on the top bass is, is it maple? I am guessing the bottom one is good ol' buck eye.
