    Bino Great looking Bass. The quality of the workmanship looks top notch and I checked out CB's site, the price looks to be way more than fair, in fact a great deal. Look at a Fodera of similar construction and you are looking at $8000 or 9000. Pull the trigger man! You will be your own valentine if you buy that beauty. Also cool to support an american craftsman. Peace and Happy Valentines Day to all!

    I was just looking at the site yesterday thinking, "If there's one guy I'd want to build my custom bass, it would be him". :D

    I'll go one better, Bunny Bass is about 20 minutes from me, Jimmy is a good friend (and also a Roscoe dealer).

    I've PLAYED that one, and said "holy s***, I'm happy to be a 5+ guy, or I'd be blowing my honeymoon money!"

    Cliff, that thing KICKS @$$!!!

    :)

    (It also helps that I just got my new fretless 6 and am totally in LUST at the moment! ;) )

    My only complaint regarding my Bordwell bass is......I don't want to stop playing it and go to work! Thanks a lot Cliff. ;)
     
  17. Yeah Jason. Beautiful bass. CB has one of my favorite headstocks out there. Plus as I'm sure you're aware Chris Wood plays one.

    Hey Gard, Next time you make it back down to Orlando you should stop by the shop.


    I should get the site updated by the end of the weekend.
    Pictures are always fun!:D
