Alrighty....this'll be my last commissioned bass for 2005...I've gone more than a little overboard in the new bass department this year....I figure this'll end the year with a bang! It's going to be: a 33" scale bolt on 4 string african mahogany body...light!! eucalyptus burl top...really blonde! Maple neck birdseye board red abalone heart block inlays Nordstrand dual coils under birdseye covers Bart 3 band with a passive tone control and series/parallel switching for each pickup and a 3 way mid switch banjo frets gold hardware Hipshot hardware with brass bridge saddles elongated headstock for more taughtness in the 33" scale brass nut jazz spec neck w/24 frets ebony knobs Chris says he's going to start it in early February, and it should be done by the end of February!! Yowza! Now THAT'S having your production schedule together!! I'm going to try to attach a pic...if it doesn't work, could someone here help me out? The pic is on Chris Stambaugh's website...it's in the collection gallery under the name Torrain. It's the blonde Fodera Emperor-looking one on the bottom with the blocks/birdseye board. There's a couple of shots of it....could someone here with more technological skills than myself (which ain't saying much) try to post the pics? My bass will look very similar, but in a 4 string, and different colored blocks...someone here help a brother out? So...whaddaya think of the look of the bass? You dig it?? What would be YOUR dream stambaugh? Mods...if this thread is too much of a duplicate thread, mea culpa. Please fell free to merge them if you feel it's more appropriate! I've been staring at a pic of this bass for a while...time to act!! ...post away!
