    Really? I never realized a roasted body/neck would smell like that...no thanks.

  5. Those smells go away after a while. When I got my new bass I could literally smell the wood of it for about 9 months.
    Then I took it to the local luthier for my first PRO setup & he covered it in some Stew-Mac polish which completely removed the scent of wood for months & months.

    Some of that great woody aroma has returned, but I will be soaking it in furniture cream in a couple of months, to prepare for Winter dryness.

    I want a bass that smells like Jasmine with a touch of citrus and just a hint of sea breeze............but that probably wont happen.

    If I want to smell campfire I'll just go out back and make one.

    But seriously though, I wondered how these might sound, I wish someone around here carried these, its obviously getting high praise

    Maybe the "Pics or it didn't happen" slogan should be changed to "Pics other than stock photos or it didn't happen". Whaddya think? :D:D

    I played one of these at a local store. The roasted ash body was super lightweight and looked really neat. I was not in the market for a jazz bass or would have been tempted. Super cool bass, congrats
     
  14. I thought the neck was the roasted part?

    The main thing is that you need to post stock photos and claim them as your own. Then when someone suggests they might be stock photos? Quickly insult that person. That's the way to get folks to give a hang about your awesome new bass acquisition.

    All you need is a really big plastic EZ bake oven. Maybe a couple marshmallows.

    The one I played also jumped out because the bass felt so lively and resonant. I think the torrefication process can give them that dry vintage-y feel.

  19. Soon we'll have to take photos of the basses with us in the photo & that day's Wall St. Journal in hand.
