In the end, It was a toss between this and the New MIA American performer in alder. ( See ash v alder) this ash appear to be the dense type? And they did such a fantastic job joining it. I'll give credit to the AP though, it had such a warm soothing tone to it. I was convinced I wanted it but my wallet prevailed. I have a feeling in time I shall be glad I stuck with the ash one. I also have a feeling I will get more than one some day...

    And now for the pics!

    Check this out, going to give this thing the player's yosemite pickups and a vintage bridge for a lil extra style (and adjustment). I found a local Luthier who focuses on fretted instruments, so I'll have him do a full spit shine of it technically speaking.

  4. Sweet bass... yeah if you can get the pickups of the pro then you've got the best of both!

    I think theres still going to be a difference in sound because of the dense ash over alder, however I love the way this thing looks! I'm too new to bass for getting too specific about tone.

    The grain on that body looks killer. Congrats on your new bass!
