    They're made by Scott and the guys at Birdsong. Trust me, that's all you need to know. Those guys are artisans.

    By the way, a while back Randy Dritz (the "D" in S.D.Curlee) visited Birdsong and cut some bodies himself, for a special hand-signed and numbered edition. I posted some pics at the time.

    I had a couple of them back in the late 70's? maybe early 80's.

    Nothing fancy that I can recall, pretty basic actually, but they really punch through in a band setting. Mine were just like this one: http://www.sdcurleeusa.com/

    +1 to that. Scott's a consumate professional, talented luthier and a very nice guy. The new Curlees must be awesome basses.

    Yup. BTW, that is THE Randy Dritz in my previous post. Head designer of the original S.D.Curlee.

    BTW, Scott is doing something really cool, IMO. He's collected a number of "leftovers" from the original SDCurlee factory and offering "NOS" parts as well as refinish/rebuilds of old basses, plus a few "heritage builds":

    How cool is that? :bassist:

    I can feel the GAS building up...
