    as of 9pm tonight, right as he fell asleep and the Spector brochure fell out of his hands he demanded that I have the phone number to the shop were he saw the thing ready for him in the morning...He is going to call and order one.

    He wants an advance on his allowance...at $1 a week I told him he'd be 80 before he started getting allowance again at which point I'd be dead.

    This didn't affect his decision...

    now i just have to come across a short scale crazy blue bass to keep him quiet...

    Tho he was eyeing the Laklands also...
     
  11. here is a short-scale crazy blue bass....

    what IS that?
     
  14. I have major GAS for a custom pickup config of J/P/J on a Warmoth (if they do it :( ).

    I think Stu Hamm has something like that....
     
  15. "what IS that?"

    Why, its my very own 1980s scratch-built original, the "Bebb Mk.I" !!

    Maple, ebony, polyurethane piano finish, Schaller hardware, Bournes conductive plastic pots and three EMG pickups all came together to make that one...

    I played it for about a decade, & then sold it on ebay years ago - but I recently had it's direct descendant the "Bebb-II" built for me by a local custom shop - (its my avatar guitar...)

    (BTW, the same shop actually makes some custom guitars especially for kids - they made one for a six-year old recently...)
