    Before shipping my LeCompte VBX 6 string, bud asked if he could take the bass to Oteil Burbridge's show to let him check it out(Oteil is Mr. LeComptes fave bassist :) ), of course I said by all means "YES". Otiel first commented on how beautiful the bass was and then slapped on it a littled while, THEN signed the back of the headstock !!! How cool is that? Makes ordering that bass even more worthwhile. Bud took pictures and will soon post them on his website. Thanks bud.

    :( Sorry!!, Bud will chime in here at one time or another with the pics I'm sure. I have seen one with him Oteil and the bass. Posting pics on here seem to require some sort of rocket science 'cuz everthing I try just dont work :meh: . I'm sure Bud will post the pics soon. He posts here on a regular basis and has been great about showing the work he does. To see pics of the bass you can go to the Luthiers corner forum a click on the "Pics by request" thread. The pics will also be on the Le Compte custom basses website.
