After many months of the "long wait" of custom ordering (I'm sure many of you know what I mean)....I fanally got some first pics from Brian Barrett at The Lowend of how Chris Benavente has the body shaping up. It's gong to be a hybrid combination of the Benavente Single Cut "J" and "B" bodystyles. This will have a buckeye burl top, mequite burl back, ebony fretboard, 13 piece neck-thru, and dual coils. And I'm sure Brian's electronics will make this sound just as good as it looks! This is my first true custom that I have actually had built for myself and I must say that Brian and Chris has really gone out of their way helping me and adding their own special touch "surprises" on this one to keep me happy! I think this one is going beyond what I was even expecting. I highly recommend checking out Benavente's or TheLowend.net (he has a very cool section there with customer order basses that will give some very good ideas on your next bass) website for any potential custom orders. I did quite a bit of shopping around before ordering this and these guys came up with a way to give me exactly what I wanted (and more) at a much cheaper cost than I had even budgeted. Thought I'd share a few of the pics. Here's a pic of the sanded body that shows the body's shape fairly nice... Here's the body and neck with a little gloss... And the back... Thanks again Brian and Chris!
