    Not much longer! I got to play the original white Low End Jazz in Indianapolis and it was terrific! Flexible hi-fi tone with jazz bass punch, and the feel and playablility of a hand-made too. I'll be super psyched to see the finished basses, but it looks like your five will be the first!
     
  3. Very cool, Al!! Can't wait to see those finished.

    I'm trying volume ,tone volume ,tone ,EXB pre. I can't wait to see what that sounds like. The EXB pre works so well with it's own pick-ups but it sound questionable with third party pick-ups. The seven string will have
    the new Benavente pre. I hope that I have enough time to practice before we hit the road. I told Cris that my new basses look like Sunday Morning at New Northside Church!!! My basses look like Gospel!!
     
  5. That's awesome, Al! The maple fretboard and white finish go so well together.

    Mine is the trans-white over ash 5 on the far right. I'm sure I've posted the specs...Benavente pre and PU's, clear and tort half-guards (ala Sadowsky), maple board, chrome hardware.

    Al, you're right...that white jazz does say "gospel"! (Along with a Tobias 5 or 6, they also say "gospel"!)

    Having played the white one in Indy, I know they won't disappoint.
     
  9. Yeah, having one of these at church would be very nice!
     
  10. :eek:

    I sure hope that circuit breaker panel is in a drying room and not the spraying room (like it looks!) Don't blow yourself up Chris!

    WOW, really cool thread guys.

    Thanks, I'm glad your enjoying the LowEnd Jazz basses. Chris is doing a great job on them to produce something very special and unlike any other Jazz basses.



    Heres a 6 that we are doing for a customer. He likes a darker color stain, none paint. We did a walnut stain finish with matching headstock. The pictures and flash make it almost purple looking but its a walnut trans brown stain.

    Hart outed you, sucka! Now I know who to pump for information...the web guy!

    The alder bass I play sounded so live I thought it was ash, so I can't imagine how the ash bass is going to sound :eek:
