i popped major cocobolo over this top!!!
and a walnut neck that brings a tear...
by the way, that's a quilted mahogany top - according to the dealer.
Where's the pickups?
you used to molest one of those, din't ya?
nice. You buyin?
Brad! It's obviously one of those "under construction" pages.
This sequence shows it just before the top's routed for a P+J+MM+P+JJ arrangement.
accurate wording...yes, i once did.
nahhh, just visually molesting.
may i never buy a bass again!
that's a beauty!
I had my eye on that one too. I'm not going to bite, though.
Rob Allen should make more basses with the Alder and Mahogany backs. I like them much better than the swamp ash ones.
UNF. if that thing didn't have a lined fingerboard, it would be cosmetic perfection. i want an RA sooooo much...
y'know, this would be torture if there was any way that i could possibly afford one in the next 5 years. but there's not, so i'll just enjoy the eye candy.
C'mon Duane! Bust out with Charles an' Mambo! C'MON!
J/K! No harm intended, Mr. Moderator type person
ahh, skrewel days...my best friends were 5/$1 mac & cheese and
the week-old bread store. Not to mention the cut-out / used bin at
the record store.
Sure, it's bookmatched and a nice job at that. What WAS I thinkin'?...
"yes Rob, a doubleneck. The top? One piece of Bluegum". Poor Mr. A.
Bluegums ARE dang big trees but geez!
On the other hand, it makes for a interesting Rorschach test
i love rob allen's work.
the doubleneck...those bronzes AND tapewounds?
never tried anything but the tapes on my old mb2.
how do the non-tapes sound?
she's a beauty....SHOW US THE HEADSTOCKS!!!
( I'm SO sorry DHC )
Yeah, I know the pics are "weird" (the back view's courtesy the
"horizontal flip" thingie). On the front view, that's a Bluegum veneer.
The T/I Acousticore's on the macassar board are real Bow-wow-WOW-ry .
A new set's since been installed (properly ). I always refer to Mr. Manring's
tone in La Sagrada Familia - but less edgy. Now if I only had his chops .
sigh...i just e-mailed rob allen a few days ago.
he has some VERY interesting things in store!!!
thanks for the head shots!!!
i wet myself!
