I have been waiting for my custom-ordered R Bass for well over a year....and after a couple of snafus, my bass is shipping Wednesday!! Ray's been great through the process. He has had a lot of problems with Hipshot delivering defect-free product on time. The delay had NOTHING to do with him...just an unfortunate turn of events with a supplier. Anyway, onto the specs! singlecut 4 string bolt-on ash body ash neck 34" scale birdseye maple board blonde buckeye burl top urethane finish black hardware Nordstrand J pickups under wood covers abalone dot inlays Audere 3 band pre (the tricked-out one) J neck specs vintage frets I originally ordered a 33" inch scale ash/maple bass which was due to me, but because of the Hipshot problem, he's offered this bass to me instead! Much more expensive, brand new, at no charge. Ray is tops, in my book! Pics to follow...he's sending it out priority USPS on Wednesday...I should have it Friday or Saturday at the latest! Big thumbs up to Ray!
