    Well since NAMM is around the corner and a lot of guys from TB will be there as well as Builders like Nordstrand, Browne, Ken Smith, Conklin, Benavente, etc. I thought it would be cool to post a thread of Builders basses in progress or finished for NAMM 2004.

    Look forward to seeing everyone at the show!!

    Brian , I think this un-solicited thread is an advertisement.

    Anything I have for the show will be on my website NAMM Preview at best ! If I don't do the web preview, you will have to come to the booth to see what we've 'cooked up' !!

    Post a link when ever you get yours up.

    I was hoping to see what everyone was bringing or some of what they are bringing.....(lets me know if we need to build something else :eek: ) jk, no time.

    I'm sure everyone has some sweet stuff going for NAMM.... we aren't revealing everything :spit:


    JP, I'll go through and discribe everything.

    Hey Brian,
    Any photos of those two Vintage Vortex 5-ers yet? All that fancy-schmancy wood is fine and dandy, but how 'bout some basses with regular ole paint! :D Chris should have some in-progress photos of a couple "Benavente-does-old-school" basses, right??? :D ;)

    No prob, pull it if its a problem. I was hoping to see Carey's and everyone's stuff for NAMM, but I guess its not happening.

    I'll be happy to pull it if you want.... I know what the Benavente's look like, I just thought it would be cool to see everyone elses stuff and show Chris's stuff.

    Oh, well.....
    Thanks
    Brian

    upon consideration with The Boss, this is an advertising thread, and so we're going to have to close it. sorry.
