Has anyone had any experience with these? It is a small luthier from Toronto. His website is http://www.welcome.to/vadimhandmadebasses . One of these has found its way into the local GC. It is the bass on the entry page of the website. It is absolutely stunning! It is marked used, but the salesmorons say that it is actually new, but since it was wholesale purchased directly instead of through GC corporate, they can only generate a "used" tag. I can't comment on the sound because the B-string on it is completely dead, so I didn't even plug it in.
