    Beautiful bass! Congrats.

    Heh, JP, I may be dropping you an email to see about a bass (though I can't really afford it RIGHT now).

    Enjoy that beautiful top jojobass.

    Looking good there, that's a very interesting top. It's certainly prompted some discussion here at TB!

    I can wait to get my JP too!
     
  7. Looks awesome! I would love to see some JP basses make it over to this side of the pond, so I could see one in person. Looks really good!

    The dying process is nt from me. Larry from GalleryHardwoods came up with a method to dye all through the wood. This is why I can carve or sand the wood nd the color remains.

    About my business, I only build about 10 basses (or less) a year and sell localy.
    The first bass going out of France will be Xush's fretless Plume. In fact, because of the "rising Euro" the value of his bass changed between the time I gave him the price and now. I mean when we talked, 1 euro was almost 1 USD and now it's about 1,15 !! No biggie here, I'll work out something for Mark but I got to pay atention to that if I sell out of France again, which I hpe ;)

    Peace, JP
