    I don't know if this is "custom," but i've never seen it before.

    So imagine this on a 6 string bass (meaning wider.) It would be my bass but I can't snap any good pics of mine.

    I disagree...the guy who owns that bass got exactly what he wanted and ordered from Michael Dolan. Not my cup of tea either but there's 1 very happy (albeit "disturbed") bass player out there somewhere who is thrilled to death with it.

    The rest of the lemmings are out buying Bongos and telling each other they look cool...this guy had a vision, found a luthier capable of making it come true and that was the result. I'd match the quality of that green Dolan against ANY bass out there and Michael's customer has his dream come true.

    Well, let's see. I think it takes the same amount of time it took one to become a supporting member and in your case it took 9 months so I'd say you have 8 months and 29 days to wait until it appears.

    That Dolan is the first bass I have seen where neck dive could prove fatal. I would like to see more pics of it.
    My inlay is on my avatar.
