    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
    VOL/VOL/TONE
    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.
