    Just received the finished pics of my new Warrior DM Spalted Maple with Cherry Burst from JD. Looking forward to getting this bass this weekend and playing it at its first gig.

  3. Although I am not too big a fan of gold hardware, this one looks better with it. Sweet!
    Is this #4?

    I've actually been talking to him about getting his personal Bella 62 that has Fralin pickups and Glock Preamp. He's holding it for me and has made me a deal I can't refuse. Even said he would send it to me to play and see if I like it first. 31.jpg 32.jpg

    That is my dream bass I'm going to have JD start building with dual Coils and inlays on the neck end of this year. It's my dream bass.

    Played this bass 2 gigs this past weekend and band mates told me it was the best sounding bass they've heard. This thing is warmer than my others and hits harder in the low notes. Simply amazing bass.

    I'm talking to JD right now about a Bella 62 5 string he built for the Texas guitar show. I really want to add one of them to my Warrior stable.

    I'm looking to get the lighter colored bella 62 with rosewood neck and block inlays he had there. The one on the far left.

    How was the build and the block inlays? Was the action and neck as good as the Warrior DM basses?
