    Hi everybody!

    I got a few pictures of my dream bass - and as they are nowhere online to admire I thought I share them with you! ;) Well you can't buy it in the USA so it is not just a "cheap advertisement". I am pretty new around here so I hope it is not against some forum etiquette!

    It is a new Lefay bass - "Herr Schwarz" (Mr. Black)

    I have no idea about any technical details yet. But well, it is just really nice to look at it!

    "Herr Schwarz" is a budget-version! And that is a good thing!

    "Lefay for the rest of us!" ;)

    But yes that shape is even sexier - the best butt in the bass-world!

    There's been a rave review in German magazine Gitarre & Bass.

    Great bass with a price starting @ 1600 Euro.
    I'd get one right away if I only had the cash. :bawl:

  19. I really like the shape and contouring, and the elegant touches like the knobs. If only it came in another color! (but then it could be Herr Schwarz, could it? ;))

  20. I personally don't like it, but I'm not buying it. You are, and that's what matters.
