    I finally got some pictures of my Curbows but I couldn't get them to attach! To see them,go to www.prockenklang.myphotoalbum.com

    If anybody can attach them to this thread,that would be very cool.

    Also,are any of you guys going to the Curbow party in June? Check-out www.georgiaonthegroove.org It is going to be a blast!!

    Holy crap. That's a pretty amazing collection. You're going to need a bigger case. :D

    I'm down to only two Curbows, but they are both amazing instruments.

    BTW, do you get a volume discount from Curbow on your purchases??;)

    Whoa! I think you probably have more Curbow basses than Greg Curbow himself had!

    Do you have any basses other than Curbows?

    Damn prockenklang! I didn't bother attaching the rack photos as they might induce vomiting. Your instrument case is enough! WOW!

    -edit-
    Okay, so Myphotoalbum.com won't let you directly link to either the small or big photos. You'll have to upload them to your TB attachments folder and attach the 640 x 480 pictures to a new or used post. My folder is filling up so if you could please re-post and attach I can erase these. Thanks!
     
  11. still one question though...



    why so many?

    and i want an answer other than "why not"... that ones a given! ;)
     
  12. Wow, how do you have that much money?

    Just curious:
    The blue one up front - did you commision that one? If so, what made you pick that pickup combo? It's interesting.
    Which one (or two if you want to do fretted and fretless) are your "go-to" basses?

    I've never seen a case like that...care to share some info about why the case is built like it is?

    Very nice collection!

    Hey Brad,

    It was the prototype for a new model called the Slapper.Greg built it a fews years ago and it was never sold.They are building one just like it right now,so if you are interested,give Simon at Curbow a call.I don't think it is sold yet.By-the-way,they e-mailed me a list of instruments that are in production right now that aren't spoken for,so if you are looking for a Curbow and don't want to wait a long time,give them a call.

    The case was built for me by Calzone.It is designed to hold up to 16 instruments.The neck holders latch into place and can be moved or taken out.There are padded bungie cords that attach around the neck,and 2 around the body to hold the instruments in place when you are transporting the case.Once they are strapped in,the instruments don't budge!If you go to their website,you can see a picture of one upclose.I had them build mine with attached double doors instead of a removable front lid.
