    #030-00, passive Aero pups, which I do like. It seems very tiny compared to my GT-7. Most of my gear is packed up for my impending move, but playing it acoustically and into the PC both sound great. Great feel, very comfortable shape, and it looks cool. Just sharing the moment. ;)

  2. Congrats man! and welcome to the club! I personally love my #43-01 and i am certain i want Matt to build me a fretless 4 sometime in the future. Was that not Bass Greasers bass? i saw he has been trying to sell it for a while and i'm glad that the bass made it back here close to where it originated. :)

    Enjoy it!

    Yep, it was BassGreasers, I got it in trade. I am changing the white knobs for plain aluminum though. I'd like to have Matt make me a seven "bean" or "player" style in the future as well. :hyper:

    Ditto.

    Sweet bass, Blisshead. Congrats!


    Be careful, FBBs are very addictive. I have a hard time putting mine down. ;)

    I plan to lay down my deposit during the second week of March!

    Mark needs an intervention/12 step program.

    Doesn't look half bad...And about 85% good :D
    85% because I'm still iffy on those headstocks.
    Nice score !

    go ahead, buy it from under me.
    You know you'll just trade it to me later anyway.
    Here's Adron with the back of 31 in the back of my SUV, on our way to the last Atlanta GTG:

    well those in the know understand the headstock issue....
     
  19. I am in the know about the headstocks but i actually like the way mine looks. Its almost a cross between a Bongo and a Peavey Cirrus
