    Yo Adrian,

    looks like there's a kind a yin-yang / spooning-thang going on there. If you don't watch out, they might get together and multiply. Then you'll have another high end bass.

    :eek: I hate to be the one to tell you this, Brian--I don't think the truss rods can fix the bow in those necks.

    You better send them down to me. :D

    That is, quite possibly, the single most beautiful instrument to ever exist.
