    Now that's a long time coming. I guess ken probably hasn't really needed a site.

    He's the only guy out there I can see building my dream bass. There are a handfull of other builders who's instruments look great but I havn't played. I've played a couple of Ken's basses. I've not played a bass that plays better. I also think that the Chamberbrase is the classiest looking bass there is.

    to quote the alleged website "coming soon" - I will be sending you a bill for the last 20 seconds of my time.

  4. Huh? :confused:

    I know a lot of people have been waiting for ages for a KL website. He's one of the most respected builders out there who doesn't have one - I can't wait to check out all the eye candy once it's done. I know my KL is a friend for life :D
  5. I was hoping to see the Intro proclaim: "Home of the Squidstock!". His basses are truly works of art. I can't wait for the full-blown site.
  6. One of my faves:

    I'd really like to try that one. It's Ken's own bass and it has a 33" scale length. I want a fanned fret (34.5-33" scale) 6 string Chamberbrase myself.
  8. Aside from Jean's 11 - I don't think I've seen any fanned frets from Ken :eyebrow:

    Nope. I was wondering if Ken would do it but after I saw Jean's it answered my question. :D
  10. I think Jean's bass proves that Ken can do ANYTHING :D

    Provided you're patient enough to wait over a year for it :bawl:
  11. I believe it'll be real close to two years for Jean.

    All I know is that his Associates are damn fine looking basses.

    It broke my heart when I sold my second Brase. Someday I'll have a Chamberbass. In the meantime I still have the one with a gloss finish:




    Not mine, but I'd like one like it!

    Seriously, Ken is one heck of a nice guy AND builds some of the best basses on the planet. The stuff he builds for people is just perfect!

    I played it at NAMM last year and it's everything you would imagine it to be. It was my favorite bass there bar none (followed closely by his redburst fretless and Scott Pazera's Nord NX-7).

    I'm REALLY glad that I don't like that pickguard thing on there. Otherwise I'd be selling my car..... :rollno:

    Yup, that redburst fretless is just beautiful.

    How was the B string on the 33" scale 5er?
  20. It's actually tuned to EADGC I believe
