  1. Howdy peeps!

    I decided to do it and ordered me new Gecko 5 string from Warmoth tonight!!
    After admiring =^..^= at a number of gigs and getting a few laps on it and a good chat I decided it was the way to go.
    A Swamp Ash body with a Jotoba top, a 'medium' Maple/Bubinga neck with Birdseye maple finger board, Duncan active soapbars, Duncan 3 band preamp and black hardware.
    Hopefully it should be here with in 2 weeks.
    Christmas is coming early...hopefully!!

    woot!

    My gecko 5 string has arrived!!

    Went to see =^..^= last night and we started work on it. First the strap locks and then shielding tape in the electrics hollow. Must say JG (=^..^=) did a lovely neat job of it.
    The kahler bridge has been screwed on after some slight work with a counter sink drill to get the screws to fit nice and allow the string saddles to move over them. Last thing before I left was screwing the neck on. It looks awesome and feels lovely on the strap!!

    Pics to follow shortly! :)
