    Are those the string ends I see going from the top in front of the bridge? I've never seen anything so cool in my life, if that's what it is. Otherwise, what's them colored spots on there?
  4. those are strings!! the strings go thru the body twice..giving it a Dynamite B string...:hyper:

    Finally, a Luthier who figured out how to create a bridge chassis that fits the design of the bass, rather than a square brick of metal.

    I'd like to hear/feel that low B, but wallet says no way.

    Good luck Ben.

    Dang it! I've been waiting for a Birdsong to come up and just as I've lost almost everything in our stinkin stock market. I'd snatch this up in a heartbeat but the economy says forget about it. Good luck to you.
