I just scored this bass a few days ago. It was handmade by Austin, TX. luthier Bill Giebitz. It features a 1 pc. swamp ash body with quilted maple top, a quilted and birdseyed maple neck and fingerboard with abalone dots on the top and sides, a LQ Badass bridge, Hipshot tuners, EMG pickups, vol/blend/stacked bass/treble, and a strat output jack. I'll probably switch out the gold tuners for some black ones. Eventually I'll lose the EMGs and throw in a set of Nordstrands, but for now I'm totally high on this bass. In the right light, the quilted top looks like flowing lava. I love it.
