Pete Hanewinckel built this custom 5-string fretless short-scale bass for me. Top: crotch walnut; fingerboard: Pao Ferro; body: Swamp Ash. I just picked it up yesterday. His work is gobsmackingly amazing. It is a stunningly beautiful bass that plays effortlessly and produces a wide swatch of sonically gorgeous sound. If you ever get a chance to play a Hanewinckel, take it. You won't be disappointed.
