Currently I'm in serious GAS for MB2 by Rob Allen. Problem is, I don't live in USA and total cost including shipping and import tax (over 20%, more or less) is way over my capability. Will it be possible to mimic/copy/knock-off the sound of Rob Allen MB2 bass if I can include essentials of MB2 in my custom bass? I think there are a few essential characteristics in MB2. 1. chambered/semihollow light weight body with 1/4 inch top 2. La Bella 760n nylon tapewound string 3. fretless fingerboard 4. one piece acoustic type bridge saddle 5. undersaddle piezo bridge with simple volume/tone control (impedance matching buffer included) 6. string through design 7. small, angled head with small, light tuner 8. super rigid laminate neck and... 9. EXCELLENT craftmanship... and artistic sense. I think he's a kind of artist. I know it's not possible to exactly duplicate such a work of art. But I will be happy if I can get only dim shadow of MB2. I'd like to hear your opinion. I know it's a shame to STEAL the idea of such a great luthier. But... I'm too curious.
