    WOW!!!! That's pretty awesome!!!!

    The only thing that dosen't look 'right' is the control layout. The knobs look toooo close together.

    Nice work!!!

    Good looking axe. And unique too, which is always refreshing.
     
  5. Thanks. I really like this one. It's going to a guy in Japan. Here's a better picture.

    ;)

    Not bad. I like the shape.

    Well, it's quite a step up from the one in your avatar, aesthetically speaking. IMO, anyway.
     
  10. The one your talking about is the one I play every week. It get's more attention from the croud than you would imagine. It has a very high public approval rating. It's not your everyday bass and I think that's why people seem to like it.
