    Anyone know if they at least sound like a bass? :)

    i'm working with Michael Spalt as i type.

    i had a chance to visit his shop in LA.

    they are phenominal sounding basses.

    especially the lightwaves!

    god that site is like a porno mag, my hands want to touch everything.

    i wish the look wasn't so Xtreme, but i love the way those things look in terms of feel, from the thumb rest well to the pivots. i love the metal hunk in the middle too, that's got to feel great in your hands and i assume works like a tremelo given the emphasis on the bolts?

    awful tempting stuff.
