Okay, so technically she came home a couple of months ago, but almost as soon as she did, the school semester started again, and I haven't had much time to take pics. Christopher 303, made in 2001, the 7/8 scale 5 string hybrid with violin corners. Lisa Gass at LA Bass Works was amazing to work with. She helped me find what I was looking for and set the bass up beautifully with a set of strings that was partly my own preference merged with her assistant's recommendation: a full set of Kaplans and a Permanent B (Kaplans don't come in 5). Nicely balanced. So far this bass is doing heavy duty in the school Orchestra and chamber orchestra, playing my solo rep for class, playing melody in a bass trio chamber piece, and blasting it next to the tuba in the school Wind Ensemble. On the way home from the shop, my wife and I both talked about names, and for some reason, more so in person than the photos, she has a distinctly caramel look to her. So, "Cara" it is.
