Look at this!!!
I am fortunate!
Look at the sliding control cover:
The battery powers the onboard tuner:
Very cool. I've always liked the look of David's basses. They somehow manage to be a bit space age without looking too goofy (usually).
What woods and pickups did you use? In the first pic, I thought the body might be cocobolo, but later ones made it look more like stained ash. Ebony FB, right?
Very cool. I don't think I've ever met anyone that owns a David King. His basses are the only headlesss basses (aside from Basslab) that I think have any style or pinache to them.
That one's a winner.
David Build some wonderful instruments!!!
Nice bass though.
Here is some spec info, for those who asked.
The body wings are made of swamp ash
3 piece maple neck
Curly maple rails
Beautiful bass! David builds great instruments, and his design is one of the most elegant and graceful shapes out there (IMHO).
Very nice, but the control cavity is not shielded at all?
It is sprayed with some kind of shielding paint. It's a little gray... this may sound iffy, but there is no buzz whatsoever!
Very cool. I really like the original touches, like the control cover's sliding door.
What kind of electronics are there?
The bass is totally passive!
That's interesting, I can't see the display in the pictures, where did you hide it?
I haven't seen any of Dave's basses in person which is odd because he's a local.
But I have had him install a Bartolini preamp in my Fretless and add ghost marker lines on my fretless US Masters. He does pretty first class work and is really a very nice guy.
From the photos of your bass, Meltsakana, it looks like a very sweet bass.
you can see it in the first picture, where the neck ends.
Very hard to see though.
I talked to Dave a few time, I was thinking about having a bass made by him.
They have a great desing! Very beautiful basses.
Gorgeous: elegant: WOW!!!!
