    I'm digging this bass. It only took about 5 months build time. The only things that are really custom options are the Nordy pups and no face dots on the board. I've played a few Sadowsky Metro J5s and this is right up there in quality IMO, but about half the price. No gigs this weekend unfortunately, but next weekend - it's on!

  2. ^ That's one beautiful hunk of wood! Congrats, and I like the clear pick guard, but why have one at all?

    Ooo, nice.
    Is it chambered ?

    Well - screw holes - bad. These come standard with clear pickguard, but I'm sure I could have ordered without one at all since it was a custom build, but I dig the clear - and also ordered a black one for that classic look, but I might stick with this one.

    Not chambered, but I need to check on that option if I ever get another one. The weight isn't bad at 9# but I do prefer 8#.

    9 lbs is a good weight.
