    Bill was kind enough to post a special page regarding *our* design at his site-

    http://members.shaw.ca/wilkatguitars/gonzo_bass.html

    including my review-

    and a few pics I took here at home of the assembled instrument-

    Bill was such a joy to work with on this project,
    I found him to be very personable and truly a class act,
    and the end result is one HELL of a bass!

    The sustain is really amazing;
    I can quite literally slap the open A,
    put her in the stand,
    go make myself a cup of coffee (with cream, thank you)
    and when I come back, she is still humming!!!
    = )

    I won't go TOO far into details here,
    for fear of this post sounding like an advert...
    but I did want to share this beauty with you,
    and would be glad to answer any questions you might have!

    Hee hee!
    Damn, I'm like a kid who got what he wanted for Christmas...
    = )

    Aloha for now-

  7. Next time try to take the picture somewhere that the view won't detract from the look of the bass, damn thats a nice waterfall.
