    Whats the string spacing on the 5? Got any videos or soundclips? Hows the neck profile on that 5er...

    The string spacing on the bridge is fully adjustable. Right now, it's about 11/16" - 5/8" depending on the bulkiness of the string. The neck is quite slim. Very fast & comfortable. I don't have any video clips yet, but if you want, I can make one this week. Let me know and I'll try to find the time!

    Alright, I made a video. It's not much, and it's brought to my attention, I need to go running more. But I hope you can get an idea of how they sound.

    At first I thought the brand name was "Please Buy My Bass" basses. Which would be awesome.

    Great looking instruments!

    Good job on some very good looking instruments. Also, smart move not putting Bartolini’s in there

    Thanks! I'm trying to do something a little different than other stuff seen on here. I do love Barts, but Delano is also doing amazing things and have a great variation in their product line.

    @phillipkregg I think that is the official name of my brand moving forward.

    @elkkid2 I let her scratch my cab so she leaves my fiancee's couch alone. It's a lose-lose for me

    Wow, these sound really nice; sort of like an MTD mixed with an Alembic essence vibe.

    Wonderful and thoughtful basses you've got there, really fresh, and I loved your demo. Thanks for making that video, it makes a huge difference. Quite a great pick player, and I bet that sounds great in a dense mix. Man, if I were in the market, I'd get one!

    Your demo video actually shows what the basses can do really well. Better than most demos.
    I really like the 4 string a lot. Beautiful wood work, smart choice of electronics including the Delano PU's.
    My wife would kill me if I bought something in that price range right before Christmas, so not doable for me right now. But I will check in after the first of the year to see what is up.

    Some the prettiest basses I've seen. What's the string spacing on them?

    Thank you so much @Basstards ! The string spacing on the bridge is fully adjustable. Right now, it's about 11/16" - 5/8" depending on the bulkiness of the string. Interesting in trying one?
