    Still making special wood Knobs if Ebony body with glowing blue veneer with Spalt cap with glow blue marker dots.

    It is kind of easy to get missed with how awesome the bass is, but that is an amazing looking bag.

    Is that a Macassar ebony board? Also, I like that Warrior countersinks/recesses the bridges now for lower action, without bottoming out the saddles.

    Yes it is a Macassar board and Macassar Pickup covers. Yeah you can achieve really low action with that design and the way he builds his necks. This bass sounds killer. Completely different and fuller than the MM/J configuration I have. Both are great but this Dual Soapbar Barts and Custom Glockenlang combo is amazing.

    I had a Warrior with the Fatboy/Jazz setup, and it had way too much mid-range, even for a fan of that like me. I agree with the two soapbars being the choice. I met the guys at '09 NAMM, and they were really nice. I tried a model, and played it in their sound booth. Indeed, it played like butter...almost played itself.
