Darrin was/is a member of TalkBass. He's aware of this thread, and knows that a number of TBers on his wait list have participated in it. He stays away from TB, hasn't posted here in a decade. If Darrin gets only one bass done, it won't be mine: I've only seen a picture of the body. Another TBer's bass has been close to ready for years now, but he lives outside of the country so shipping is both challenging and extremely expensive... I don't know all the details so I won't comment further, but from what I've seen that bass is 95% done. What does a roughly-shaped body count for? 10%?
