I got my first Benavente yesterday. I had a custon green one with a maple board made, and I've gotta tell ya', this bass has more lowend than ANY maple boarded bass I've ever played. Just like a Sadowsky, this bass has a big mouth! If your technique is sloppy, she'll tell you! The playability and feel is amazing. Chris is a sick builder! I'll post better pic later in the thread.
