    i like purpleheart and that, my friend, is definitely purple.

    It almost looks like it has peizo's and no pups because of the covers.

    very nice

    What preamp does it have?

    Is Ray still using the Haz Preamp?

    I believe Ray is using an all Bartolini setup now. He probably ran out of Haz Lab stuff. Haz Lab is supposed to start making pre-amps again according to Carey Nordstrand.

    Will Carey be offering the Haz Preamp if they start to produce it again?

    Carey's standard pre-amp is an Aguilar 3 band but he'll get you whatever you want.

    BTW, congrats on the bass Adolfredo...are you going to get a bullet proof gig bag for this one?;)





    sorry, hope that wasn't in too bad of taste

    Ray still uses the Haz Lab, I believe, but he has been leaning toward the bartolini lately. I've got one up forsale with the haz lab pre. The haz Lab preamp use to of course be in the fodera's before Pope added the master tone.

    Is Carey planning on using this preamp for his basses?


    Nice looking R!
