    +1. Except fretted. Also, I don't like the squared off fingerboard that most custom bass Luthiers seem to use. I prefer the rounded style ala Fender. But still, I could live with this bass ;) :D

    Ive seen a very similar bass hanging on the wall of my local music shop. Is this an Australian Luthier by any chance, because the brand name rings a bell.

    That dove is really lame, it would be less lame if the bass was actually semi-hollow.

    Yes I would like to spend 40 dollars to have vibrating mass removed from my instrument. I don't like sustain and clarity.

    A guy at my church has one. It looks like the Trinity model. Sounds great... very versatile. Plays nice and sustains forever. I kinda like the dove thing, and doubt it would affect the sound... at least considering the sustain and nice body weight of the one I played.
