Over a year in the making (man, those custom Bartolini 7 string pups can be slowwwww coming around), I finally got the bass I've been waiting for. And I got it on my 50th birthday, to boot! Specs: 7 string Signature GST, Solaris body Wenge/Bloodwood 9 piece neck with Bloodwood fingerboard Curly Maple on Mahogany body with Wenge mid lamination Semi-Hollow body Piezo bridge pickups (RMC) Bartolini CBJD custom pickups Bartolini preamp, 18 volt Gold hardware Polyester finish with tint to match fingerboard Brass nut Flush-mount Dunlop straplocks Protec Pro pac case The following pics are Pete's. While I have it at home tonight, I haven't taken any pics for myself yet. I will gig it twice this weekend so I should have a fine idea of what it sounds like by Monday. I'll post a full review after I've had a chance to spend some time with it. While I have mixed feelings about turning 50, I have to say this has been a pretty fair birthday!
