  15. I didn't even think to ask about the case with all of the other choices that needed to be made!

    I love your wood choices and I think that the SC body style compliments that huge fretboard very well. Some of the ERB's look a little unbalanced to my eye (mainly because I have little exposure to them) but that bass looks very balanced. I'm looking forward to your reviews on it when you can find time to stop playing it! ;)
