    ok, don't want to ruffle any feathers, if the mods find this inappropiate, let me know and i will delete.
    just wanted to share a couple of pics, got this Maple Burl from Leo ( it came full circle, Dan Altic originally got it from me ) and after i threw a set of F Bass LaBellas ( i tried elixirs and they didn't do it for me ) this thing is the perfect companion.

    Those 2 look amazing... You have made the right choice!!

    I actually like that once better than the white one...it goes better with the Mac bass.

    Every day is a blessing my brother!

    I'm coming out at the end of April, I'll make sure to let you know the dates so you can let me know where you are playing.

    Best!

    Wow Adrian, I thought you were gonna sell it on your site for Leo. I didn't know you were picking up my old BN5 up for a backup to your Mac Baby. I loved that bass and it served
    me well while I had it...but I got Nordy GAS.:eek: ::)
    Play it in good health my friend!

    BTW... I didn't think you liked flame maple F/B's.

    thanks smperry!
    Dan, i am using white out liquid paper on the fret markers on my mac, i just did the same for the maple, it comes off easily, so i think the flame maple thing is solved. I am thinking about playing it in the show tonight, in fact, i plan to !

    thanks, Vince, but no, my skills do not deserve them, they are nothing short of blessings from God. I am only a servant, and I use them to glorify His name, whether at the show or at church, it doesn't matter, it's all for my gratitude for the Lord. That I am even here to play them is a miracle in itself.

    Man, that pic is something else!

    Glad it worked out. Seems some friendly people out there, a guy in town is letting me use his F bass till my day comes. Dan, that bass did what it needed to for sure. Sold on that thing, but I thought about getting a matching headstock and heel, but then figured I'd get what it is I really wanted.

    So, got another 4 months to go. Time to sign up for the support group! And thanks for working with me on that, Adrian!

    He may want to make sure they are not related or he could end up with a Little Wishbass :D
