    <beaming expression> :^)

    This will be one of three that I am ordering and I am going to keep the best two :) This one should be here tomorrow morning! YAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!

    This one came from Sweetwaters...for those wondering, Musicians' Friend continues to be un-friendly. I was told bass would ship today, and now I am told it will ship tomorrow. Grrrr....

  2. That, good sir, is a bitchin' bass. Congratulations.

    About $1500. Only problem is that you can't choose between flamed or quilted maple. You have to take what you get on a phone order. I got lucky with this one...only quilts I have seen are on the 5 stringers.

    I LOVE quilt tops as long as they are bookmatched and aren't just two slabs of wood put together...

    I will probably keep this one and one other, and the other will be a tobacco burst one that will probably be a flamed maple top, so I will have one quilt and one flamed, both 4 stringers.

    Also, I originally bought the FMT like you have but in a 4 string model...I am starting to like the maple fingerboard better than the rosewood one. JMO though.


  7. those look great.. uhhh.. what does FMT stand for?

    Figured Maple Top...

    The thing I am kind of pumped about is I am getting the nice look of a Sadowsky or Lakland, but have the bass be a "real" Fender he he :) and not have to spend 3 thousand bucks on one bass...I can get TWO for that price!


  9. Ahh ok, thanks. I thought it was Fender's Magic Touch.. but, Figured Maple Top works too. HA!
  10. UNF. that thing is nice.

    So, you think two added together might be as good as one Sadowsky? ;)


    The bass looks great - enjoy! Let us know what you think!

    I prefer the Maple boards myself but so far they aren't available in a five... I have no idea why.

    Good luck.

    Now we're talking, Dave. I'm looking for a fretless six and will definitely be considering a Hanewinckel. Very nice.
