    i would have to agree with you lol. And while I get your point , when you start a company from nothing and nowhere in 2005. There's many things far more important than that. ... i think or guess. :)

    I don't play well.
    I just always assumed Mopped meant Moped. Never bothered me at all. But, I could honestly care less what any of my bass models are called.

    I just got my Elwood yesterday.
    Damn it plays like a dreams. The neck is so smooth and comfortable. The action is really low and zero fretbuzz. It weighs almost nothings. Jesus this bass is comfortable..
    It sounds incredible. Punchy, aggressive just the way i like it with tons of growl.
    I don't think i have any intentions of buying any other brand ever again. I have two Maruszczyk basses so far, a fretless passive Frog and now a fretted active Elwood. All that's left is a passive jake to complete my inverntory

    Elwood specs
    Alder body
    Maple burl top in turquoise blue
    Roasted birdseye maple neck and fretboard
    Hipshot hardware
    Haussel humbuckers
    Delano preamp

    Frog specs
    Ash body
    Bubinga top
    5 piece wenge maple neck
    Rosewood fretboard and ramp
    Hipshot hardware

    I don't know much about Led Zep, but I dig your version! :thumbsup:

    So how did you come up with the arrangement and how long did you practice with the Maruszczyk gentlemen before the video shoot?

    i've seen how such videos are shot.

    My guess is not much practice whatsoever.

    Thanks for the compliment :thumbsup:

    Adrian and I got together for about an hour the day before to work out the arrangement ... Then met up the next day to record and film, that took about 90 minutes as well.

    The recording took no time at all but the post production work Adrian puts into the sound and video quality takes some time. Adrian puts out super high quality videos and when I saw the finished product, even I was blown away.

    I'm sure we'll do another next time I'm in Germany and admittedly, I can't wait :)

    my pike came in today. I'll post pics when it's set up.

    any string suggestions? I prefer light nickels on my other basses.
