    Ok, ok... Y'all are sick of my babbling about it,, admit it... I know... Anyway, I finally got around to taking pics of it. BTW, that's my 16 year old hold it... I'd also like to point out the neck, its quite a piece.

    ALSO, many thanx to Phil @ the 5th Ave Fret Shop for bailing me out!!!

    Awesome looking bass. I love the look of that neck. Is that just a stain? What type of wood is it?

    The neck was crafted by the fine folks over at USACG, & is unfinished (nekkid) wenge, w/ an ebony fingerboard. The body was crafted by the fine folks over at Warmoth, & is Black Korina, finished w/ thier Translucent Blue.

    Pickups & Pre - Bartolini 8CBP & 9J#1 w/ an NTBT running at 18v.

    Sounds like a really nice bass but unfortunately for me, I haven't been able to see any pics from the TB Gallery in a while. :(
