  2. Sweet bass!

    For those who haven't played or heard one, this is capable of VERY punchy tones for a short scale bass. I own two of the bolt on models.

    Quick sound sample to hear its growly, punchy nature…

    John,
    This is a sweet deal because Hallmark is out of stock to make any new ones; I was talking to Bob this Friday. His apprenticeship with Mosrite payed off; Bob Shade makes some great guitars and basses just like those old school days only better. Hallmark is a best kept secret that will become a hot item in the very near future. GLWTS it won't be long before its gone!
