    That's not bad looking. But it's got too much hips. I don't like my woman with too much hips, either, but to each his own. :D

    Yeah, talk about giving Beyonce competition! Those ramps, I mean pickups look like they would be fun & fast to play on.

    Jens is a true artist. I sure would like to try one of his basses, but it is probably best that I don't.

    i mean look at it. i've been tainted by the likes of JT, Jean, And Stew and their 4" wide necks. i do like a girl with hips though. not BIG hips, but little love handles are ok
     
  8. I saw that on Ebay too.

    If only I knew how to rob a bank and get away with it... then I'd be in business!

    That is one long scale. I don't think it will fit in my house :D

    After building, testing, boxing & shipping cabinets all week, I needed a brake yesterday.

    I went into our new showroom at the end of the day & looked at all my basses. The decision was easy, I grabbed my 6 string fretless Ritter Classic with a Buckeye Burl top.

    Then I fired up an El Whappo cabinet & a 21" Whappo Grande cabinet & cranked the power. All of a sudden all of the stress of a hectic week melted away & I was left with just pure bliss from the most amazing fretless I've ever played (or owned). Jens crafts incredible instruments.

  12. I'll chime in and say (write) that Mark's Ritter is amazing and that Mike's basses look pretty sweet, too...

    :D
