    Very nice. Is it just me or does it seem like Chris sure does build a hell of a lot of basses? His dealers seem to always have something in stock and he has several popular lines. What is the average wait time when you order from him?

    That is probably a question best addressed to Chris Benavente or Brian Barrett of The Low End.

    Im interested as well. Seeing as Benavente were the first boutique basses that I fell in love with,I may get one. If the wait time is under 9 months,that would be great.

    Nice bass-I'll never get tired of saying it but-I love my SCD5!

    I believe the wait time for a custom Benavente is like 8-9 months. But why wait? It's been said that most dealers have a Benavente in stock.
     
  15. Killer, that top is stunning.

    Other than the Standard Series, I have only even seen a few in stock and even then usually used.

    Benevante has to make about the only SC I like. And I really like 'em.
    Nice.

    The Low End usually has 1 or 2 in stock. But if/when I decide to get a boutique (It's really a matter of convincing myself it is worth it) Id probably want new just so I could get everything I wanted. I dont really want to drop $2500 on someone elses dream bass. Plus ,, 4 strings dont come around that often in the boutique world.
