    Now that's a great looking bass!
    I've played 2 Stammie 4-strings recently, and the man does some incredible woodwork. Really beautiful basses!

    I like the shape of yours a LOT! It is a beauty indeed.

  6. Here's a good one from the LAG site. I had the pickups changed to Barts. Mine is the one on the left.

    ah, you got one of the twins! Which one, bolt or NT? How's the tone? Need specs! We love details!

    The top is Thuya Burl full face. Maple neck though with purple heart runners. Fretboard is cocobolo. The body is mahogany. Bart NTMB preamp and Bart pickups. She sounds Wonderful!

    funny, Stachio, that's how I used to judge basses too, but then everybody started looking at me funny.

    At least we don't actually do it, like the Dude does!
    I'm assuming...

    I think the Dude is the only who can pull this off and not look like a sicko ;)

    Looks cool Pete. :)

    That is an amazing bass!:D I agonized over it for a long time, and fell in love more and more as I played it...if I could have afforded two basses, that would have been the other one.

    Make sure you wipe my drool and finger prints off, but good. I made sure to leave my mark on it.:Dj/k

    Congrats on the purchase!!!:D

    Congrats, Pete. Did you get a chance to hear it with the original pickups? Just curious.

    Chris does great work IMO. Anyone looking for a custom should have him on their short list. He's also very reasonable pricewise.
