    These weren't ordered by me, they were custom ordered by somebody else.

    But I own them now, so I guess that makes them 'my' customs.:D

    (Guess the Lull might not be considered a "custom". "Boutique" perhaps, but I put it up anyway..)

    Winter's Custom Scarab

    Alder core with a Walnut top and back. The other laminates are Cherry and Mahogany. DiMarzio P/J pickup set and a Winters EQ. This was the first bass to have the Winters EQ installed. It also has a series/off/parallel switch for each pickup.

    wow, that's one of the first Marchelewski's that I've actually liked...
    Something about them rubs me the wrong way, but that one's just right. Now I guess I see why people like 'em.

    Not exactly "custom", per se, but is exactly what I woulda' ordered custom, just lucky enough
    to find one at a dealer:

    I've got a real custom on the way, but I'm keepin' my mouth shut on it for about another three weeks.
    It should be very special, tho. :hyper: :bassist:
