    Man, that is a cool bass. Great looking guitar, too. Nice to see something other than a run of the mill dime a dozen paint job.

    Works of art, truly.

    THANKS!

    I'm trying to carve out a little space for myself in the bass/guitar world.

    The kudos keep me going...:cool:

    I know this is an old thread, but is the Tele still available? If I can get my Fender Geddy Lee Jazz bass sold, I may pick this up from you

    Still available, and upgraded with a Lowe Custom Guitars bridge and pickup rings.

    Update photos forthcoming.

    The gold thunderbird kills me! I'm a big fan of your headstock shape as well. Great stuff!

    Thanks Steve!

    I was surprised to see this pop up, but grateful, too.

    The prototypes were really something special in their own right, but the new instruments are built on a completely different level of materials, fit and finish.

    All USA CNC-milled parts of the finest available hardwoods, finished by the best painters in the industry.

    The gold top on that Thunder'Luxe is absolutely stunning.

    ;)
