Oh yeah it was definitely an easier bass to build vs his scrolls. No doubt about that. But it proved he could stick to a schedule and meet a deadline when push came to shove. Just wish all those who were robbed of their money could see the same results with their basses even if it is almost two decades later. Even at this point to be able to get what you paid for would be a victory, a bittersweet, emotional one, but a victory nonetheless.
