  1. Made some better photos in some part-sunlight without dead grass.
    I have a new-found appreciation for this bass. Maybe it’s the Pensa preamp that gives it that kick.

  2. Rebirth of my Cast 5 strings fretless!!! My wife took the bass for her and said she wanted to use it with ornaments in our house. The instrument just did not visit the kitchen and bathrooms. She didn't like any place where he was put. I gave thanks to God. He came back to me and here it is again.

    hahahahahaha
    We don't have fireplaces in our homes. At least in most of them. Brazil is a tropical country and temperatures during the year are high. In winter, in general, we have a minimum of 12° C.
    Thank you!

    I'm thinking seriously about dropping coin on one of these two Sandbergs:

    In the words of Nigel Tufnel: "It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none; none more black."

    That too... but it's cooler than 'all black' - the way you can see the contrasting grain in the body wood against the ebony fb is visually nuanced and sophisticated. Just a nice gestalt.

    I didn’t expect to love this thing as much as I think I do!

    I used the configurator on their website (what a great tool). If I pull the trigger I am going to have a customization done on the body (I want them to skip the tummy cut contour on the back, as I prefer slab bodies). Production time on custom builds is currently 9 months.

    Btw, I love that Bee bass!

    I know, I seriously considered it, and watched the video you posted of it. It has a great sound. Unfortunately I dislike lined fretlesses (except for side lines).

    It is a great bass but by that price point we really ought to get what we want...
