    I'd totally gig with that. If it had a minimum of 2 more strings. I also own one of these though.

    Passive with more output than any active I've ever heard. It is actually the best sounding rock bass I own. A bit tacky I agree but loud and growly nontheless. He stopped making them because sales were soft and they took about 7 times longer to sand than any other body shape.

    My basses are all over the continent
    With me right now I have, 1 fury and 2 carvins (1 in a couple of days)
    In Edmonton I have the Groove tools. The pictured bass (in red) as well as another fury are in LA. When I get them all together I'll be sure to take a pic.

    From the second link he listed: The E and the A string is all a bass player should need to do the job properly,If you want to play fancy stuff on the skinny strings then you should be playing lead guitar.

    :rolleyes:

    That must just be a bad angle. I can guarantee you that it does indeed increase in width.

    Scott,

    Fretted starts at 1700 Canadian factory direct
    Fretless starts at around 1800 if I remember correctly.
