    FedEx said 1/17. Looks like it came in early! It certainly makes for a nice birthday present, doesn't it? (1/16)

    Plays like butter. Very comfy. Strung EADGC which I'm liking. Can't wait until I can afford a better rig. I'd play it more but my fingers are worn out.

    It looks great! I like the birdseye maple pickup covers. They work well with the fretboard. The spalted maple top looks better in person than in the original pic they'd sent.

    Here's a couple more pics...

    I like the spalt, I am currently waiting for my spalted Spector US JH5. I am dying a little each time someone posts a spalted.

    I know what you mean. There was a Fodera threat a little while ago and that was killing me. How long's your wait?
  7. That is one great bass for sure! Looks nice!
    It is Ash body right?

    Happy birthday..........

    I am such a sucker for spalted maple bodies with maple fretboards. And those pickup covers are KILLING me. Awesome bass my friend!

    Excellent! :hyper:
  15. Nice! The first two pictures look yellower than the third - which is the closest to the actual colour?

    Hou: yes, it's an ash body.

    therealting: it's somewhat in-between. I couldn't quite get the right lighting. I may try taking some pics outside during the day or something. My house isn't the greatest when it comes to bringing in lots of sunlight (and our carpet sucks a lot of light up)
