    Thanks for the pics!

    I'd have loved to go this year to the Messe, but unfortunately I have the quarter-year exams just now... :(
    At least your pics make up for a bit of it!

    Every time I see a bunch of Ritter basses it just blows me away. The flat black one with the birdseye fretboard and pup covers is amazing. So is that 7 string!

    Simply amazing.

    Without any hesitation, the very best bass of the show:





    It's a Dingwall Priam Artist 5 string. Body was alder/walnut with ziricote top and back. Maple.bubinga and wenge neck with ziricote board.

    Well, I'll go a step forward and say that this is also the best bass I've put my hands on. ALL things on this bass are so intelligentely designed and built that I was comptly stocked/ Not to mention sound and look :eek:

  11. a few of my pics ( i will add more when i'm home ) :

    Ari, thanks for sharing.

    That macassar ebony topped 5 string could start a whole new level of GAS. I'm just glad that you didn't get any pics of Jerzy's basses.

    Jerzy only attends one year out of two this is why there's no Jerzy pics this year.

    And yes Ari pics do look great. A white sheet of paper, a couple of Ritter Sport chocolates and some beers helped him a lot.

    :eek: :D
