    Extended Single Cutaway
    Sp. Cedar body
    Buginga Top
    Single pickup-Bart. Mc-56
    input jack only, no knobs
    Maple/Jatoba neck
    19mm. 34" scale
    Ebony fingerboard
    All I can say is this bass exceeds my expectacions.
    Huge focused sound, tight, B-string is right on.
    This bass plays effortlessly.
    Very subjective to right hand.
    when you dig in this bass responds.
    Light due to cedar body.
    If your looking for a custom made bass, Look no further than Matt Schmill.
    A great bass, at a great price. Buy two!!!
    Sorry no pics yet.
    Go to FBB Custom Basses to Gallary Bass #1070-3

    It all seems pretty sweet to me, but this especially caught my eye:

    looks so cool (pity the jack isn't side-mounted, though). I'm starting to dig on these SCs.
    Congrats Mojo-Man

    nice! I love watching his stuff come together.
    I think everybody knows I'm a pretty big proponent of Matt's... my next one is #73. I guess I better finish the specs as yours was #70...
    Even his 34" B-strings have huge tone, huh?

    Mojo, that is a totally
    sweet looking bass!!! You've got to post clips...

    the first of my two FBB's landed yesterday as well...but that's for another thread.

    I agree with you Mojo -Matt has the alchemic skills to make it happen !

    Tonight..after I get the Spalt capped Flamed maple THG knobs on it...
     
  11. VERY nice! Simple, as is said, but elegant. And if ya have tone to boot, dang, what more can you ask for?

    My #1067 is supposed to land on my doorstep Sat. so I'll be able to share in the FBB hoopla.

    :D

    Man alive... every time I see a new FBB I get GAS so bad.... and really jealous too. I'm not usually a fan of the single cutaway design, but every FBB I see is just so beautiful.

    I'd love to visit his shop, if he'd let me.... I live pretty close... hmmm...

    Beautiful bass Mojo! :D

    And everytime somebody goes to visit his shop, I get jealous, because I'm so far away!
    No fair, you can go play them. I have to order them!
