    Didn't receive it yet... I just paid for it today. Hopefully it's shipping on Monday and arriving Tuesday. Crossing my fingers! I'll see about getting some clips recorded and online after it comes... My sound card really lacks though. :meh: :smug:
     
  5. Sure your sound card lacks. That's not where the money is going :D :hyper:

    Very nice!!!
    I second the burst. I dig how the head stock matches the body. Is that a little binding on the headstock, or is the bust stopping just short of the edges?? Either way, it's super classy looking.
    Sweeeet!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats on the new Bennie! They're like Doritos, aren't they (can't have just one)? :D I have a four string Vintage Vortex on the way that will look just like your except this one will have a rosewood board and tortoise shell pickguard. Be sure to give us an update when you receive the bass and have had a chance to give 'er a good workout. ;)

    I saw that one on eBay. If you got it anywhere near the $1200 opening bid, you got yourself a deal.


    Congrats and enjoy!
     
  10. Hey guys,
    Go to either the Benavente website or Brian Barrett's website (The Low End). They have SEVERAL mp3 files there - even Video clips of people playing Bennies at the NAMM show!
     
  11. Congrats!! Very nice looking bass!
     
  12. quite the expensive habit you got there. maybe you need to go to rehab :D

    I'm pretty sure that bass spent a little time at the Low End, and I thought it played and sounded great. My single cut has the same pickup config, and I thought your bass sounded just as good as mine for less $$$. Congrats- sweet bass :hyper:
