    man, oh, man!! i was gonna say the same- OVERNITE!!!!! i just dont have that kinda patience-
    JT, please say hi to Bill for me.. and congrats!!! again!!
     
  13. I have followed the hints of this momentous occasion since I joined TB, but recent searches for specs have been fruitless? Is this a secret? Or are they somewhere I haven't looked?

    Congrats on the new addition in any case!!

    All I can say is that when I was married, I'd never get a piece of ash from my mate.....:D ;) :cool:

    ah, the specs. well, it's unlined fretless, 7 strings, tuned b-e-a-d-g-b-e, with a figured redheart fretboard, 3 band eq and rmc piezo/synth pickups. it's hollowbody like my black one that i got last year, and painted white with gold sparkles, and a matching white headstock cap. gold hardware and bart pickups.

    it's similar to this one, but fretless, white, with a redheart board (the electronics and hardware are the same...

    I've been looking forward to this bass more than I have to any of my acquisitions since joining TB! C'mon man, overnight!

    Hope you love it, and hope the lady friend finds it well worth it.

    Of course, when you get it, pics, specs, etc.
