    Posted about two weeks ago that I placed an order with Rob Allen for a MB-2 4 String.

    The specs for the bass are: Mahogany body/Koa top
    Birdseye Maple neck/unlined fretless Striped Ebony.

    He just sent me some pictures of my baby being made. This is going to be one beautiful bass.

    Here's the top:

    And, the back:

    This is going to be good!

    Sweet bass... but what about that neck?

    j/k... I'm jealous:D
  3. That looks beautiful!! I really like how the tops of the Rob Allen's are so clean, it really shows off the wood. I am interested in trying one of those out, but the only place that has them around here is Club Bass in Toronto, and I haven't had a chance to get there yet.

    On the net it's at http://www.clubbass.ca/

    It's physical location is right near the Queen Street Mental Health Centre on Queen St. W. on Ossington Ave. The place operates by appointment only usually which is nice 'cause you have the gear you want to try to yourself. They got Rob Allen, Sadowsky, EA amps, Avalon DI's among other things.
