    My Crimson transparent DeArmond Starfire arrived today from Musicians Friend. I've been playing it for the last hour and am able to get a lot of really great tones from it. It seems well built and is a very pretty bass. This bass is being discontinued but MF still has them available. Worth every penny of $300 IMHO if you're looking for something a little different and don't want to spend a ton of cash.

    I wish there was such a club.

    Tomorrow I'll be receiving a Fodera Anthony Jackson Contrabass for my approval, and then Thursday it will be a Dingwall Voodoo 6 string.
     
  11. Dingwall 6!!!! Yeaaaaaaahhhhh!!! Sweet man. Enjoy to your heart's content. What a beautifully crafted and playable bass. I know one of the endorsers. He plays it like a dream. I've even tried one too! Imagine that.
