    Jay at Blueberry Hill Bass emailed me and let me know that my new SKB3006 showed up at his shop :).

    I'll have it in my sweaty mitts by the end of the week!

    Then the learning and adjustment period begins, but I can't wait.

    Jay: I'm very "low-tech", would you please post some pics on this thread when they're available?

    How exciting! I know how you feel - I am buying an SKB3005 from a board member here, and should have it next week. I am pretty jazzed about it.

    I played that bass at his shop recently. Don't know what it sounds like, didn't plug it in, but it played great. Congrats.

    Am I missing something here? :confused: This bass just arrived yesterday and I wouldn't allow anyone to play a customer's bass that had aleady been sold without that person's consent. Did you sneak through the window last night and sneak back out before sunrise...... :eyebrow:

    I live in Greensboro and am friends with Keith. It was his shop that I was speaking of. I always check out the extra sweet ones before they leave NC ;)

    Gotcha! :D ;)

    And you're right....this is one sweet bass! I enjoy sifting through the stacks of tops to find the gems like this one.
     
  13. That is a beautiful bass! I love Keith's Cobalt Blue. It's just so.......so......so BLUE! :D



    Enjoy!

    That's cool. I'd love to be able to check out all of the basses in his shop! :) I'll be in the market for a different 5-string in the near future, chances are it'll be an SKB3005. I'm going to call Jay when the time arrives.

    Thanks TBer's, for the nice comments about my new bass.

    Keith's been great, he's resopnded to my emails quickly concerning the tone I'm after, and he's a really nice guy. Jay at BHB has been wonderful to work with too. This is the first bass I've bought where I was given the choice of woods, pickups, electronics, finish color, and hardware used. Jay's been there every step of the way, making sure the bass is exactly what I want and need. :cool:

    I'll certainly post how it sounds once it arrives! :hyper:

    Your new toy should be in your hands on Friday. Do you think you'll be able to wait that long? :hyper: ;)

    I'll be okay, but I've got the jones now :D . I've got a gig on Friday, I showed the pics of it to my bandmates, and they want me to start using it right away. I said: "Cool, but excuse me for the wrong notes at first!" :D

    It's gonna be nice, I'm sure. :)
