    That is a pretty solid looking bass. Maybe one day you can work up to a real Fender instead of a cheap knock off.

    I'm about to enter retirement and am rounding out my gear while I'm still working. So at this point in life it's all about "quality" in all aspects of life.
    And I've gotten kind of hooked on Sadowsky's too. They feel right to me.

    Thanks al for the positive feedback! l
  9. You certainly did not pick a scrub for your first five.

    Nice bass, and the B-string makes for a very comfortable thumb rest if nothing else :D
    Birds eye maple for the fretboard ?

    Thank you.
    It's been a long well-deserved time coming. This is part of what I worked for all those years.
