This is kind'a weird, but just to clarify some issues that may come up in the next few years: I do not copy JP basses! :scowl: Background: JP's latest annoucements, the Naïa body and the blend-free electronics, are so intimately close to what I have been scetching on the last few years! It would seem as Jean-Philippe Ferreira of JP Basses and myself carry parts of the same brain!!! Even the JP pickup resembles some of my earlier thoughts (but is much more elegant, I give you that), and I expect you remember my flair for necks, laminated parallel to the fingerboard, like JP's old J-neck. Jean-Philippe has just resently become a father, after building up his enterprise and shop, with an understanding wife! Dispite my higher age, I have not achieved that level yet (except fatherhood ). I just sit on a huge pile of ideas, accumulated over 20+ years, my shop is my kitchen and bedroom (not allways appreciated ), and my output is max 2 basses per year. Bottom line: just remember, when you see a bass of mine, or JP, that I do not copy JP basses! :scowl: nor does JP copy SUBurban. Jean-Phillippe: keep up the good work!
