  2. I think it was Lothar Walter of Station Music in Germany who said to me that Siggi is considered the Godfather of Fretless in Germany. So don't #$%&@ with this bass:D:D:D

    Killer sounding bass, but what bass wouldn't sound killer in Kevins hands...
     
  5. Bump for any Human, even Kevin! :)

    I have had a number of the GERMAN Humans and they have all been EXQUISITE instruments.

  8. Hey Hey Dan,

    It's not too custom. But yeah, I picked out the top here in the US and had it drop shipped to Germany, and I picked out the electronics. The measurements were naturally similar to what I would like, especially the 18mm at the bridge.

    As far as the tone, I really don't want to prejudice the sale with all sorts of esoteric tone babble, taking everyone down the rabbit hole with me on this one:p ...I just went a little too modern when I should have gotten a more "traditional" fretless 6, he he. I have the Veillette, which is smokin'. But I have actually never had a solid-body fretless that quite worked for me. Although I am making a decision now concerning a very nice Hanewinckel that I have...

    I would say that if someone has a nice Fender, or something like that, this would be a great addition that takes them in a somewhat more modern direction.

    Cheers to all, and thank you for your compliments. It's nice to get a little good press:).

    EDIT:

    Hey Hot Pocket, I would say that you could send me a pm on the trade concept. I originally thought no way, but something like that might actually work. Thank you!

  9. PM'd a few ideas back at you and I do have other items as well.

    PS, I NEVER shoulda listed yo your link: Veillette Paris. Now I have to have one!

    Tremendous playing, as always, Kevin.

  11. The finish is super classy, and feels great to hold; a very inviting satin type of finish.

    Come and get it.
     
  12. My bumpin' thumb is getting sore. bump

  15. Ugh! How many times can a man bump without losing the use of his thumb?

    These GERMAN made Humans are apparently the best kept secret in the US.

    Just phenomenal basses . . . BUMP to the moon - (Neptune's moon)
     
  16. Snag this bad boy!

    Uncompromising, unrelenting, and implacable fretless growl here for the taking.
