    Hello everyone !

    I'll just pop in to review my newest bass , my DPCustom .

    In one word : outstanding .
    it has a great tone , very nice woodworking and a great look ! look at the pic. !!

    It has an ash body with a bolivian rosewood top .The neck is plain maple . And the coolest of all
    are the 2 Bartollini's : they sound incredible ! Mush better then my previous bass . full of growl !
    Just the way I like them served !

    Mr. Pushic was a great help , although we where communicating with the help of our friend ; mister e-mail ! very patient !

    So that's YOUR bass i've been admiring at Dave's homepage. Nice!
     
  7. Dave has a really cool operation. All the basses I've seen of his have had very noce woods and interesting designs. He is definitely a very unique builder. And his prices appear more than reasonable. I haven't had a chance to play one of his pieces, but with the apparently growing number of people buying them, I hope I will be able to.

    And guest, that is a really nice looking bass, I like the contrast between the maple neck and the rosewood top. Good stuff.

    Congratulations !

    That's a very good looking bass. Also, I'm planning to get a DP Custom next year, and I'm thinking in a Claro Walnut top over Swamp Ash for the body, and your bass is giving me the confirmation that the contrast between the woods looks great.

    Enjoy !
     
  9. Very nice looking bass!

    Of course, now I'm even more anxious to get mine!!

    Congrats!

    Guest - that is simply beautiful. The top wood is a gem by itself.

    this combination too . The golden hardwares are superb .

    That bass, is, well....orgasmic. :eek:
     
  19. It's a beauty! I like that body better than some I've seen on his site. Kinda looks like one of the Hanewinckel styles.

    yes , it looks almost the same but it isn't the same .
    I made the design myself in autocad 2000, so I doubt it"is simular .
