    That's all the details I could get from them other than they'll be done and posted on the site in about a week or two. Made from leftover parts, and no indications that they're back in the bass biz...

    I hope none of them are Brad Housers, or else I'll wind up spending money I don't have. :help:

    Greetings from the North,
    Nope. There will be no new Brad Houser's in this batch.

    Does that mean there will be rumblefishies?
    A friend of mine got one of the last ones, and has been telling me how much he likes it.

    Greetings,
    I believe they'll all be long 5's. Think of them as 35" Fish with a B. Still an outstanding bass with great tone and one of the best B strings you can buy. No flub and passive goodness. The necks on Reverend basses are also incredible to play. Like a nice worn in Fender with no dead spots.

    Sweet!

    There's still a leftover four banger in birdseye on there too.

    That'd be the 5L. I have one (have a BH5 too!), and I love it dearly. Massive tone, awesome neck. If I didn't have one, I'd buy one of these. Heck, I might buy one of these if they have a top I like better;)

    That is hot. Very well done! If they weren't 35", I might be looking at 'em. They sound so good! Are the 4-strings 34" scale, or are they also 35"?

    These look very cool.

    Hmmm - I've never played a Rev bass -- a friend has one of their guitars that I love. I've got a Stingray 5 and a P-bass and like both those sounds. Should I think about replacing my Ray with a Rev -- the pickup / switching is a similar concept, but different position, passive, hollow. Can anyone describe their sound?

    I was just sitting here looking at the site with my wife.

    me: Don't these look gorgeous?
    her: They look pretty nea.. wait, are you thinking of buying one? They look HIDEOUS! I can't believe anyone would get one of those! Geez!

    I have to say that the black and blue ones are even cooler looking than the ones they had before. I wonder why they weren't doing more of them.

    Awesome B string. Best one i've got, and I have a Fender Jazz Plus 5 Deluxe, and a G&L 2500 that I both like pretty well.
