    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Gotta see the pics, man! That is my #1 6-string GAS. I've vowed to get one someday and someday I will...

    I guess anto be made about "it doesn't exist if there are no pictures." That official letter from Michael Tobias was pretty cool. Little touches like that are as much a part of the appeal of boutique basses as the instruments themselves. As good as my SR5 is, Ernie Ball doesn't have time for that sort of touch I would guess.

    this is the first time i've ever really played one too.

    NOW i get it.

    just like with Zon fretlai and ANY Sadowsky.

    ya just don't know until you play one in your environment and mix a few things with 'em.

    hopefully i can stay for a bit.
