    You gotta post Brian's camphor bass and the burl walnut single cut. They're totally sick.

    I didn't realize how much stuff Chris and Brian were bringing to NAMM! Here's a link to pics of the entire stash for whomever is interested. The Camphor bass I mentioned is in here too. It's my fave fo shizzel.

    I like the Super Bee guitar too!
     
  8. Incredible stuff! Very nice work.
     
  9. That last pic has a Ritter Okon vibe to it. I wonder if he asked for Jens' permission? :eyebrow: :D

    They all look awesome.

    I love that first one. Is there a certain model name to that?
     
  14. The first bass pictured is a Vortex.
     
  15. Probably a combined pickup cover / ramp?

    I like the way that Buckeye Vortex looks.
     
  20. I guess that's not an issue anymore between professional luthiers. And what's with that horn? Who came up with the idea. Claypool? And why did Chris build one? Hmmm....too many qeustions.
