    Interesting-another 29-fret four-string from Darrin. Looks good! Like spacecanoe's but different.

    I designed the body all by myself! It's kind of a cross between a CT and a Spector, but not really. It's the same, but different.

    well, then the compliment on good taste goes to you!

    i'm sure darrin will bring live to your design!



    PS:

    ARGH! you quoted me before i corrected my spelling mistake. it's "darrin" not "darin". i hate to misspell names!

    GAH!!!!!!

    That is so sweet! Im still trying to decide who I should ask to build my double neck but damn, this thread might decide that for me. Not that Darrin was ever anywhere but at the top of my list.

    Peace

    Hey Matt, how can you sit there and look at all those pics, the anticipation must be killing you.:hyper:

    That bass is going to be awesome, can't wait to see it done up, you'll have to put some mp3's of that bad boy up, I want to hear it make some noise.

    I honestly think I am slowly dying, and I'll continue to do so until this bass is in my hands!!!

    You can bet your ass I'll have some MP3's up :D
