    I'm glad someone on here picked that one up.
    It's a beauty, I played it in there a few weeks ago.

    I'm waiting for someone to drop off a fretless Ristola, it will be mine so quickly...
    Wish I could afford to order one straight from him.

    I love Brian's work! Congrats. Glad to see someone finally pick that bass up.

    Just to let everyone know, this is not a design that Brian normally does. It was ordered with that body shape by Rockcity Guitars. You can see Brian Ristola's usual stuff at his website, www.ristolainstruments.com.

    Brian's a great builder. He does some very cool work. Congratulations. Is that a Bolivian rosewood fingerboard? Very cool.

    Gone to a better place


    You may very well have to dig up my grave to get it though.

    That's the very one I see in my dreams, I remember seeing your post when you bought it.
    I cried myself to sleep. :crying: :bawl:

    Never heard of him, but the construction looks second-to-none.

    yeah, as everyone has mentioned, Brian is a great builder. Actually I think that I tried your bass a year ago when that Seafoam Green one was at Cory's shop... Sounded and felt great!
