    Hey all,
    I just stumbled across these....I'm not good at posting photos, but here goes:
    There are a couple of SWEET basses that Chris B. is making under the Divinity label....judging by the looks of these, they're going to be off the chain!
    If this pic doesn't show, if someone here could be kind enough to help a brother out, the link is at the low end.net site under the gallery section for Divinity basses....please post a photo if this doesn't work!
    Judging by the quality of the Benaventes I've played and owned, these should be beyond ridiculous!
    Thanks, and enjoy!

    Damn....those basses look hot! I am not a big fan of the single cut bodystyle but these are just incredible! :bassist: Anybody know what these are going for?

    A little over the top for me, but it still looks amazing.

    Not cool. If you don't like it, that's fine...no reason to be snotty.

    I actually dig 'em. An exotic flavor, for sure, but look at the work he's put into the laminates and carving....yikes!

    Can you carry the bass around by that handle type grip on the upper horn?

    I don't know...They are great, not exactly my taste though. I would like the first 2 better if the lower horn wasn't so dinky.

    The inlays are SICK!!

    Beautiful instruments...
     
  17. The finish would have to be “The Colour out of Space” You could play "The Music of Erich Zann" on it...obscure Lovecraft references, yes I'm a geek!!! Gotta go I hear Cthulhu calling.

    You know, on a scale of 1 to 10 on the "Nerd-O-Meter" I think we just hit a 73...

    My first thought when I saw it was the Steve Vai signature guitars.

    You wouldn't even need a gig bag!!!

    Man, I honestly do appreciate the craftmanship and the beautiful woods, but really, I'd be embarrassed to show up with a bass like that.
