    I see someone just posted in this thread. I decided not to get the bass.
    Thanks for the comments though.

    Yes, I do believe we have a winner.
    I like Browne's basses, nice indeed.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comment By-Tor. I can't wait to see this bass done. Never played a 32inch scale bass with 29 frets before! Mike was kind enough to suggest fret lines because my other two basses are 35inch scale basses. Got to say, it has been fun dreaming up the idea of this bass with Mike. I really need to start posting on talkbass more.

    Congrats on your upcoming bass. Browne basses are one of the very few modern basses that I really like the look of. I usually don't like most Carl Thompson inspired shapes but these really appeal to me. I may have to look into one. I've been aware of the guy for awhile but keep forgetting about him until someone brings him up here at TB.

    Thanks. I really like how clean all of his basses look. I think thats what made me want one in the beginning. He just posted some pictures of a completed Gnome bass that is all walnut that really looks clean. I think Mike said the weight of the bass was only about 6lbs!

    I played one of Mike's basses (the AG) at a past NAMM show and it was definitely my favorite bass there that year. He has a great attention to detail and his craftsmanship is superb.

    Glad to see him building full throttle... Congrats on the bass, I'm sure you'll love it.

    Jean Baudin,
    Wow, I didn't know your the one that owns that Ken Lawrence "Joust" bass! That is one of my favorite basses! I love the way that bass sounds and looks. Next you should get a Browne bass :)

    Thanks for the comment on my new Browne bass -Scott.

    One of the few builders out there that has piqued my interest in the last few years. I look forward to seeing more.

    No sweat and thanks for the compliments on Joust... I'll forward them to the Chef. I have a couple of basses in the works right now, but perhaps sometime in the future there'll be a million-stringed Browne among them. :)

    Im jealous. I first saw his basses a couple months back and other GAS items have gotten in the way sense then, but I have recently gone back to the Browne bass obsession.
