    Leiber has his claim on that legacy with Irwin and has had that same outlook for decades. I've read the backstory more than once and also have heard witnesses on both sides. But that said, I know he builds a really nice guitar in the Tiger & Wolf styles, of course no matter what Irwin will always be the 'name' in that discussion, though I'd also personally credit Alembic in there too.

    I got delivery of SN #22. I have had a dozen or so Jazz and P basses, some customized and awesome. This Spellcaster bass exceeds them all hands down. CLEAN tone, lots of options. I can roll my bass eq on a GenzBenz 500 to 10 with zero distortion. Cuts thru the mix like nothing else. I had to back off my tone from the usual settings. I run it thru a Ross compressor, I can get any choppy sound or ring like a bell. Setup was perfect, no tweaking needed. My default is to replace factory strings with La Bella flatwounds. What ever roundwound strings that are on here are awesome. Great case included.

    No pics or it didn't happen! You know the rules:laugh:

    Congrats on the new bass!

    Oh in the case of pics, I really think video is called for in this case. That is one very unique bass.

    Having a problem loading the video, but I'm at the lake this weekend and the Internet speed is kind of lacking here, cel phone signal too.

    Will watch it when I get home this evening.
