    Those are, in my opinion, some of the most aesthetically pleasing basses in the world. How can I get one without having to know how to speak German? Wow! I am awestruck!

    reiner (luthier and mastermind behind lefay) sent me a link to pictures of that bass! it's really stunning and i'd like to call it my own.

    one question though: on one of the pictures the action seemed a bit high (unusual of lefays)... did my eyes deceive me or was it just photographed without "proper setup"?

    Hi Chris,
    the bass played great right off the bat,but I set it up last night and it is really awesome now!!! I used it on a gig last night and couldn't believe the sound coming out of my Glockenklang rig! I own 20 different basses(Alembics,F-Basses,Human Bases,and several others),but none of them touch this Lefay,it is amazing!
