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.
