    Hey guys...Its been a while since we have posted anything, so a thought it was time. Here is Stefan's.. the first Bird Bass out of the shop going to Rocket. I must say this one makes me want to play Bass...ok, maybe not.:bag:

    Let me know whatcha think...It actually has decent balance with no neck dive!

    Thing is insane, he's gonna be very happy, very very happy!



    I'm still completely in love with mine, but I'll admit, I'm screwing about a bit with pickups and preamps, just to try the different options I was interested in, but didn't pick at the time.

    Specs please?
    Body wood, fretboard, neck, electronics?

    Don't want to be a "spoiler" but curious minds need to know...

    Looks to me like,

    Alder body,
    Maple neck/ebony board(knowing Stefan it'll be P sized),
    Joe Barden J's,
    Passive vol-vol-tone.

    This bass is here, and it's pretty frickin' cool! I'll have pics up in just a little bit.

    Bill - have you heard from Stefan recently? I can't seem to reach him, and I hope he's OK...

    Not in a few months at least, but I thought nothing of it, he tends to come and go like that.
    Insane, bloody well insane...

    Y'know the last time I heard from him was back when I first joined Facebook, which was a good while ago. I sent him a friend request as I did all you guys, and he messaged me a couple weeks later here, basically saying he didn't use FB much. He indicated then he wasn't/hadn't been feeling well. I'll see if I can find the message.

    God Bless, Ray

    Yeah, me, too. His PM inbox here is full, and he's yet to respond via email...

    Hopefully he's just got too much biz at his motorcycle shop to be able to get around to basses...

    I'm afraid I've got to give up on reaching Stefan about this bass. This lovely, fretless Gadow Bird Bass that he special-ordered is now up for sale. Sorry, Stefan!! I sincerely hope you're well!!

    To any potential buyers - make me an offer!! I can be flexible on this one. This bass has not left my store, it's been in the case & in the box since it first arrived.

    I haven't heard from him in a long while.

    Sad to see his bass having to be placed for sale too. As much as he was looking forward to the build . But I know you have to move things and I understand completely.

    God Speed Stefan! Wherever you might be brother. ;)

    God Bless, Ray
