Custom ordered July 07. Delivered November 07. I could write a bunch of hyperbole about the bass, but I think everyone knows how great Carey's work is. It does make me a little sad to sell this one, as it was the first bass I ever custom ordered. But, it's just not 'the one'. So the search continues... Specs: Alder body Brazilian Rosewood FB Maple neck (satin finish) NJ4SE pups Volume/Volume/Tone (passive) Daphne Blue finish Parchment PG Nordy Custom N Logo gigbag Bass is a 9/10. No dints or dings. Could use some new strings. I would highly recommend DR Sunbeams. That's what came on the bass and no strings I've tried since have been near as good.
