    Just got this incredible bass from the team over at Balaguer Guitars!

    This is their 5 string Fusion bass in shell pink with a satin finish.

    It's built with:

    An alder body
    35 inch maple neck
    Their reverse head stock
    Two Marracobucker pickups
    and a Darkglass preamp.

    It's perfectly balanced! It weighs 10.2lbs with absolutely no neck dive what so ever. Needless to say I am over the moon with how this bass turned out. The wait time was about 4/5 months which is the shortest amount of time I have ever had to wait for a select costume bass. Can't wait to share some clips of how monstrous this thing sounds in the near future.

    Also included some of the progress photos they sent me during the build process.

    That's a sharp looking bass.
    I've had my goliath for about a month and I'm very pleased with its build quality, balance and playability.
    I was pondering a fusion but I was concerned about neck dive, your post has somewhat allayed those concerns.

    Here's mine

  5. Nice “costume” bass, even if it does weigh over ten pounds.
