    Well, I have the bass since July, but I only now got a digital camera... so the obligatory new bass pics came a bit later... anyway "better later than never" ;)

    Since I am not a very talented photographer, and this digital is new to me, the result will not be what I really wanted to show you... but here you go!

    A bit fuzzy pic of the entire bass:

    Whewww... im glad it worked out this time, I had to read the instruction manual again to know how to resize the pic to 640*480... but this took up half my space, so this other one is the last, im afraid...

    Body from a bit closer

    Uhmm sorry... quota exceeded :bawl: maybe sometime later ;)

    Thx :D
    The neck is just plain old standard, 17mm string spacing (though adjustable) at the bridge. the neck only looks bigger because the body is small :eek: but I like it that way! ;)

    Yes, it looks good. 17mm spacing by the bridge sounds comfortable. What wood is the body - and the neck? Well, you might as well post full specs, I suppose. :)

    THX!

    Its just plain old standard - oil-finished and waxed bubinga body, ovangkol neck, wenge board, ebony headstock-plate - and lotsa growl! :smug: :hyper:
    Though it had more growl with the TIs, but now with the DR LRs its clearer and has a better slap tone :hyper:

    After resizing four times, I finally uploaded!
    Thanks for the album
    (btw funny pics there... :D )

    So this one has sunny and darker - to see how it looks in different light conditions.
    Its raining here, so I cant take good pics now - and I'm flooded with exams :(
    But will post some more! :D :cool:
