    If the basses are made by the same people making Hajime's Brooklyn Basses (carried by Brian @ thelowend) they will be first rate. The Brooklyn Bass I played was perfect in every way and played and sounded killer.
     
  2. AMAZING. Just ASTOUNDING.:eek:

    And I randomly JUST came across Ken Smith's old thread today, where apparently you two first talked to each other. And to think that there was bad blood between you two...

    It's great to see you getting the recognition you deserve.
     
  3. Yeah, that short horn is just a killer on these. You can see in his picture that his right arm is 'hugging' the body to (I assume) keep the neck from diving, which is about the only way you can play these things standing up. However, the balance sitting is perfect.

    Great bass, the Burners are hot basses , i'm the proud owner of a 90's custom 6 to which sounds great and have "No" problem with neck dive issues.

    Excellent looking bass Hadrien.
    I'm looking forward to hearing you play it.
    Regarding the fingerboard & ramp wood.You said ivory?
    Pink Ivory wood, a sacred wood of Zulu chiefs in Southern Africa, has long been treasured as a rare wood. At one time, it was said to be rarer than diamonds.
    Your choice of woods sounds pretty amazing.

    That is a great looking bass...
    Wow it seems like only yesterday when Ken Smith was putting his foot in his mouth about Hadrien playing an inferior model and we were fortunate enough to realize that Hadrien was a member here.

    If you make a great bass, you don't need to excel in public relations

    Wow, Hadrien gave it to him.

    And Smiths remarks were uncalled for, IMO.

    This just shows that its the player, not the bass!

    Hadrien was actually pretty gracious and I think Ken just has an abrasive personality/sense of humor at times, I don't think he meant any harm.

    That was just the first thing I thought of when I saw this thread.

    Hadrien impresses me as a musician and a person.

    By the way I think that Fodera with the Holly top he had made for him was one of the sweetest looking basses around...the guy likes what he likes though.

    Will there be different pickup options on these models? I ask because in one image the pickups have exposed pole pieces and in another they clearly do not.

    Obviously Hadrien and Ken got over the rough start, so I don't think much should be made about it now. I just think that it is truly poetic justice that the Hadrien Feraud Signature Smtih is a Burner and not a real Ken Smith!:D

    Wow...I vividly remember a certain Ken Smith's article for "Bass Popping Technique" many, many years ago on Guitar Players magazine. As I recall in that article, he asked Stanley Clarke how to do that thing with your thumb. That would be SLAPPING….

    I'm sorry ,i have no infos about the retail price , because as certain electronics things are custom , they have to get the last costs to calculate the price .

    All basses will have flat cover on Pick Up , it's very important for my finger style with 4 fingers to have a flat area ( P Us and ramps) to roll on strings .

    The first contacts were just a kind of tease ,I'm glad Mr Ken Smith gave his agreement to Hajime to "re born" a fantastic instrument .. i tried to find a Burner "rescue one " on Ebay , in case mine had damages during travel ...i never had the chance to buy one ... the few "second hands" i saw were selling very very fast .

    Concerning the release of those Basses i think that the first run of ( 10 or 12 ) will be released within the end of the year . And then they will start to produce early 2010 ...

    Here is the top's wood for the second bass they made for me ( wich will be adapted for a midi setting )

    All my best thoughts to all of you .

    Hadrien...It's ironic that you made the Burner series popular again , which prevented you from being able to buy one on E-Bay!!!
