  5. It's a Stambaugh. The fingerboard was my idea; I like it but it would work better if the more visible portion of the line was on the other side. Lokire did a similar FB end, w/my permission. :D

    Really ? I've seen a few Stambaugh, but that one looks special. Very nice bass, hope you can get more pics of it up one day.
     
  7. That's one of the many cool things about Stambaughs- you rarely see two that look a lot alike(unless you want that). I've had 3 built & bought one used, & they all rocked. I will do better/more pics.

    Bump for the top one. I have the Douglas, and it's a fine bass. :)

    It has a more RAW sound than the Brice. It's definately brighter. The Brice sounds more "jazzy".
    Must be the difference between the Ash body of the Douglas compared to the Alder body of the Brice.
    Not sure which I like better, though...


    Also, how can I forget my G&L????
    perhaps THE best 5-string I've ever played (for me, that is...)

    Wow Luke, that is some killer wood. Is that a stabilized bubinga fingerboard?

    Here's my Acacia and my new Roscoe, and my ABG (since it is 5+ and fretless)
