    Here is my new bass built for me by Josh Helms. It plays amazing!! I was previously playing a MM Stingray5 and I loved it, but i didn't know what i was missing until now. So i just thought i would share my excitement. cheers

    Nice! Congratulations!

    What we here like is technical specifications, nice big photos, sound clips, and ... a link to the builder's web site?
    Who is Josh Helms?

    OK you got it. check out www.jjhelms.com for his site
    This Bass:
    24 frets
    34" scale
    Maple/Jatoba/Maple neck with the Jatoba fretboard
    Ken Armstrong pickups
    Neck thru body

    This bass is totally passive and the tones on this thing are ridiculous.

    The Pickups are Ken Armstrongs, and they sound great! As far as i understand, not to many people are aware of these pickups...... but they should be.
