So, After venturing just about to hell (and back) looking, playing, ordering, returning, various basses/eubs, etc. I just decided that I'm not going to find exactly what I want unless I have something made. As many of you know, that's where the fun, agony, pain, torment, anguish & sleeplessness starts. So, as usual, ran down the usual made to order suspects, prices, options, build time, etc. and narrowed down the list. So, after weeks of back and forth, here and there....(drumroll please)... It's gonna be, BEE! Talked with Fred and a few others, and mailed off my deposit and spec sheet, so I'm official! Larry (superwood) Davis will handle the procurement duties (as he has so aptly done before, with AMAZING results). Fred will suply the talent and energy to make this thing fly. Here's the run down: 6 string single cut fretless w/modified body style for better seated position. Body woods TBD in the next few days...was going to go Alder, w/ Walnut top...but in light of some certain woods Larry is looking at...it will change.... "Acrylized" freboard with "progressive" inlay...not a full lined fretless, this will be very cool. Flame maple, multi piece neck Nordstrand Fat Stacks with the new Bee-Pre Satin finish All in all, this is going to be a great project. I'll post pics (if they're available) and post progress over the coming months. BEE owners feel free to chime in. Heck, anyone chime in!!! It's gonna be a ride!!!
