    OK, Kevin e-mailed me today to tell me that my new Sadowsky 5-24 is done. You may recall, it's olympic white alder body, ebony 'board, no dots, matching headstock and, of course, the gold hardware you all love and respect.

    Don't bother reminding me it's vapor until the pics are up. It should be here on Monday or Tuesday. Also, I posted this from work for any of you that were wondering.

    I can barely restrain my bodipka.

    In preperation for you posting pics I've coated my whole computer, keyboard, room, dog, and wife with that really cool plastic wrap you put on the ground when there is painting to be done... I figure I'll be drooling all over the place.

    Not to burst your bubble, it probably won't ship until Monday or Tuesday. I got a gig this weekend and, well, i could use a nice white bass on this gig.

    Unfortuantely for me I already have a $14** bass on the way, which I am still paying for, and then next in line is a new amp setup, which will run me around $1200. Needless to say, new basses are not in my future anytime soon.

    LOL. My CFO, a guitar collector in his own right, said exactly that after I told him about your prima nocturne antics. The least you could do is send me a photo before you go out and defile it.

    BASTRICH! Next time don't call me until it's on the plane.
     
  16. and then you can post the pic that he sends you so we all know that its actually a real bass. :) lol jk.

    Nice pics from the gig, Nino! That's quite a rig you have there. How does it sound in a "live" setting?

    Hee hee

    Hey Mungi. What, are you on the "Bass a Week" plan? Didn't you just get another bass last week?

    This one will look real cool for those tux gigs. The gold will look cool for those formal gigs. Bling bling baby.
