    Nice bass. I saw the add for that bass yesterday or sooner. If it had two less strings, this would be my thread! ;)

    Sweet!! You can race matchbox cars on those neck laminates!! Your own personal 11 lane superhighway.

    The price you got it for is a steal. You'd be hard pressed to find a better bass at that price (unless you live in Gaithersburg, MD) ;)

    If you haven't already, you must visit here

  13. Macassar ebony is such a beautiful top wood. Neat.
