    i got this idea from the cheapo thread, but instead of seeing cheapos, i wanna see top of the line hand crafted works of art, or even custom paintjobs will be good enough. i recently entered this catagory so i wanna see what youus peopl got! explain the crazy woods if you could on your bass and so on.

    ps. the funky writings to catch your eye.

    pps. or pss. which ever one, heres mine. "kustom" kubicki ex factor.

    flame honduras mohogany, flame maple stripes and ebony center and board on an alder body.

    May is Suggest (if it not too personal) add in the Cost and Time to build, Because this may inspire people to get a Custom bass and I think that the price could help people realize that their "Dream Bass" will always be that, or that they could have had Four already...

    Just My opinion

    One in the bag and one on the way. The Alembic I ordered in 2000 and the Marchlewski is nearing completion.

    Actually, I think my other three basses are also customs, just that I wasn't the one that specced and ordered them. I got them used.

    Peace,

    James
