    It came from Chandler guitars. A.K.A. Pick Guard Heaven.

    The material is new...called Baltic Amber.

    I'm thinking I might like it better if I took a black sharpie to the edge of it though....

    Go ahead and send me the bass so that I can check out more closely. The pic is kind of small. I'll know for sure once I have it in my hands and have a chance to play on it. :D

    Oh yeah, congrats on the supporting membership!!

    it's right on the edge of my taste as well...it doesn't really look like the pic. The bass doesn't really look like a Sadowsky '59 burst either...I need to get a little more accurate photo...it matches the colors of the body exactly so...if it doesn't match the neck....neither does the body.
