    Time for a gratitutious, egotistical, totally self -indulgent plug (at least I'm honest!). I have been building Resonator basses for almost 10 years here in the good old USA (www.moonshineguitars.com).

    As for the Michael Kelly bass, I think they look really nice and Les sure makes it sound great.

  4. Interesting instrument... I wonder what one would sound like in the hands of one of us mere mortals.

    Many Thanks, I really appreciate it....More to come. I'm getting married this Saturday(WOW,did I really just say that!) and will be moving my shop over the summer,but plan to be in full production again by August. I have a couple of new models that I'm finishing the protoypes up on now.
