    AMAZING bass! The words: Stunning, Beautiful and Magnificent come to mind. Truly World class Vince! You will be the envy of all of France ... and the rest of the civilized world for that matter!

    I am even happier that this bass will belong to a man who's Talkbass name has been "Vince Loves F" long before you ever owned one!

    I only wish I could be there when you first see it in person, and then pick it up and play it. I can imagine the smiles and joy you will experience. Best always my friend~ Gary

    Great looking bass Vince- congrats...I'm up there tommorrow and will take a closer look in person...and yes, love the ash as well....is the enhancment brown or black?

  10. Hi Mitch,

    Thanks, take a closer look, and tell me what the birdseye look like, I can't see it!!
    The ash is natural, no enhancement....take a good look at it, as if I were there, can't wait....:help:

    Man, that thing is a beast!

    Oh, and just out of curiosity, is the headstock on that bass angled? I don't see a string retainer/tree and can't really tell whether it's angled or not form the pics.

    Man, is that sweet!!!
    GF really knows how to do it huh!?!?
    I dig the black line between the maple and ash. I didn´t know that was an option.
    I think it´s pretty close between yours and the walnut one Adrian has. And my BNF5 too! :D
    Your gonna really dig it, congrats!
