    Okay...I think I need to make sure I'm at NAMM at 10am to buy that blue and gold bass! I wonder if my Visa credit limit is high enough?

    Those are spectacular looking instruments. The bottom 7 stringer is my fave, but that Redwood Roya 5 is a close second for me.

    I need one I need one I need one.

    Unfortunately, I would have to sell my F, my Modulus, my amp, my truck, and probably a few other things to be able to afford one. :( :rollno:

    But, at least I would have my dream bass. :cool:

    Clicking the thread I knew what to expect: anything but an antidote to GAS....

    Clicking the link I knew what to expect: More basses allong the lines (and what lines they are) of what only Jens Ritter can do.

    Knowing these things, this caught me by surprise:

  13. I have to agree with Lyle, they have great craftsmanship but they look like something you would see in some really bad science fiction movie.

    I...I have no words for these instruments -- only tears of joy for the fact that they exist.

    :eek: :eek: :eek: Those are amazing. I don't know if *I* would want one of the striped finishes-but the others i want even though there's no chance for me to afford one. That's all
