    Cool. Never heard of Iroko wood before, though. Apparently it is a traditional Djembe wood.

    Cheers.

    Sorry missed your question Cubanz.
    The pick ups are the Barts jazzers and bass is passive, no preamp. Cheers Rob

    Not sure if it is the angle of the shot or not, but is there something crazy going on with the mono-bridge on the G string? Looks to be different spacing than between the rest of the strings.

    How's the tension and tone on the B?? Any flab?

    The B string is fairly taught, not flabby, not as tight as some 34 or 35 inch scale basses I have played but surprisingly tight for 32 inch scale. Probably needs a new set of strings and a proper set up by a pro, not sure the last time it was set up properly as I have only had the bass for a little while.

    Multiple designs and styles and all kinds of unique wood choices. That was a fun build. And for the record... I am alive and do exist. Kinda like Bigfoot though... Only come out once in a while. Glad to see this bass in the loop!

    Thanks Russ, appreciate your input, it is a beautiful bass, It wouldn't break my heart if it doesn't sell and I got to keep it.
    Too many basses, not enough hands.:thumbsup:

    Might be edge to edge instead of center to center spacing, that's how it appears at least. I think this is how Ritter does it too.

    Terrific Tuesday bump.
    Hey Tyler thanks for the bump, here is a quote from Russ as to the G string being slightly different. Cheers Rob

    The Monorails are a pain in the butt unless you use a real consistent wood grain. When drilling even with a guide in place the burl woods make the bits wander and you get the slightly offset G bridge or any other for that matter. I have gone to a Hipshot two pice set up so I can get a better set up without the fighting the drilling. The bridgepiece being off a bit doesn't hurt the sound or playability...just is "off" a bit. Hence the "handmade" part.
