    I've seen zero mentions of this bass in this forum. Is the Deluxe the same as the standard, except with a fancy pickguard and star inlays? Or, is there a functional difference? Anyone played one of these?

    I haven't heard anything about Dipinto either. In fact the only person I've seen play them was Jerry Cantrel in an Alice and Chains video.

    I don't know anything about them.
     
  3. I know Jack White of The White Strips plays a DiPinto. Given, his is a guitar. I did read a thread on here about the standard Belvedere. You might try a search for it.

    I have really been interested in getting a DiPinto bass, but I play 5ers. I did hear a rumor that they are working on a 5 string model.

    Whoops, here's the 4-banger photo. Yea, I've read about the standard, but my question has to do with the diff between the deluxe and standard. If they're different basses, then comments on the standard do me no good.

    I've written a short review of my Belvedere Standard, which I absolutely love. A quick search should find it, as not much gets written about these amazing instruments. There's no functional difference between it and the Deluxe.
     
  6. the body looks pretty cool, im not digging the headstock too much, but other than that it looks sweet.
