    That's some of the worst finish checking I have ever seen. I will be polite to the person who had it custom built and withhold any further comments.

    i believe the word is "blaghhh..."

    a 2 year old with an erector set could make a better bass {feeling embarrassed for luthier}.

    what made him buy it in the first place?
    oh well, whatever floats that German-Seller-guy's boat or boot or whatever the equivilent idiom is-
     
  16. Wow, that SURE is ugly! :D
