just thought i'd slap a review on here for everybody.. check the photo if ya want... i had dave make me a custom to my specs. zebrawood/walnut/zebrawood body, maple/walnut/maple neck, passive MM/J bartolini's custom shape, ...blah blah blah.. see the photo. the construction is very well done. the neck is super-straight and solid. the body is well-contoured and upper fret access is not a problem. i play through a SansAmp Bass driver into my SWR bass 350 and i was able to get some of the clearest bass tones i've heard. the resonance and sustain is just amazing. the B string is clear with no muddyness down the fretboard. i have found no dead spots, and the fret work is excellent. i am gonna have dave build me another bass soon, and my guitar player has already inquired about a guitar built... i could flap about this for days, but i will post a soundclip on my band's website after this weekend's gig and let you hear for yourself. if you are intirested, www.metamorph.cc/ir .. thanks for your time..
