    I'm seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on this bass. However I know nothing about Chafin basses. My online research has only led me to Chafin Guitars. This builder is bassed in Florida and builds some pretty snazzy guitars. I can only presume this bass is a one-off because there were no basses on his site. I'm probably going to email him directly for the scoop but I thought I'd post this question on TB first to get a less biased opinion. Chafin, cool or crap?

    Figured top, 5 piece bolt on, string thru. Even if you have to change pups, I'll go with 'cool'. You didn't say if it was $300 or $3000 though.

    Looks good, but "depends on the price".

    If it's below $600 or so, I'd snag it and see.

    They're asking for just under $1,000 ($995 or something like that). If its really a U.S., custom made bass its a reasonable price but definitely not cheap. I'd feel a lot safer with a Carvin SB but this bass really intrigues me.
