    I have wanted one of Carl’s basses for nearly 20 years and today I paid my balance and the bass is in the mail. Super excited to get ahold of this one!

    Sitting at a little under 2 years. There was a little mixup with the order that caused a couple month delay but Carl was super responsive and got it straightened out.

    Stylish and serious all at the same time, but I generally love Mr. Thompson's work, so I might be biased..

    Play it in good health and enjoy. I know I would.

    You made some great choices there. It looks fantastic.

    Am I trippin', or is that strung B-E-A-D?

    Also, can you ID all the woods?
    I'm terrible at this, but is it walnut/mahogany body, ebony fb?

    I can totally see this being a 'holy grail' kind of bass for someone who likes this kind of bass!
    Very nice!
