    Just picked up my new fernandez bass. Complete mahogoney body topped with quilted maple and painted. the neck is flamed maple with 24 frets. The best of all it is 3 strings. sorry for all you guys that love to play 12 different octaves in one postition. this bass truely shows the fact that more does not mean better. I can't wait till she comes, I'll make some recordings asap.

    Well, I like it, and I want one.

    ... is that a 3 string 2-Tek bridge?

    And, if you don't like it, PM/E-mail me and we'll talk. Seriously.

    There's been this guy from like Austrailia selling what calls a Custom 2 string Alien Bass. Probably still on there. He was originally asking like 13 grand for it and has been going down in 3G increments every week after figuring out he wasn't going to sell it at that. I think he wants 3 grand for it now. Good thing no sucker got hooked on that one.

    less strings = easier to make thus should be less money...
