    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Figured I'd brag on this one a bit. Traded for a sweet handmade 4-string built by a German luthier named Nikola Petrek.

    Here are the specs:
    - Petrek Custom 4 Dark Amber Flame.
    - Basstec pick ups & Electronics
    - Gotoh Tuners
    - Maple/Wenge 7 piece Laminate neckthru
    - Ebony board W/Zero fret
    - Walnut body core With Flame Maple Top and Back.
    - ETS "Tuningfork" Quick release bridge
    - 18v, Active 3 band Electronics W/dipswitches to further tweek the sound.
    - Has a pretty incredible slap tone, I must say.

    She's currently at the luthier being set up, but here are some pics:

    Looks really nice. Im currently waiting for my new bass (Godin) to arrive.(hopefully in the next week). Im hoping it wil have a nice slap tone because my current fretted bass...doesnt. The "pop" tone is nice but the E and A strings are really quiet when slapped.

    Could definately impale someone with that thing, but it looks good. Nice grab!
