    That looks awesome. Did you route the pick up holes your self? Looks very well done.

    It also looks very familiar. ;)

    Just out of curiosity, why did it take 6 months?

    Yeah, It looks almost the same ( PU's + pre-amp are Sadowsky) ;) ;)

    iam trying to route the pickup holes myself, i just put the pu's on top of the body so you get the idea.
    I realy dont know why it takes so long ????? maybe they are verry busy??

    well, Jon - at the time, I had a USA DLX Jazz same woods and found it more comfy..also, the J retro was the version before the last ugrade and it was a little noisy and i got an offer and off the bass went. To the best of my recollection, that's my story and I 'm sticking to it. :eyebrow:

    Hey Boo,
    That's an outstanding piece you've got there. I really enjoyed working with Tommy when I did my USACG project almost 2 years ago and was extremely pleased with the quality of their work.

    Nino,
    As for the wait, they are extremely busy. So busy, in fact, that they haven't been able to expand to doing things like the binding/blocks option that you and I love so much ( ;) ) because they have so many orders. They get a lot of orders from guitar guys and also supply OEM parts as well as taking care of the occasional guy who wants to try his hand at building a bass. Nevertheless, when your parts finally do come in, it'll be quality stuff. :D Congrats Boo.
