This afternoon I went over to the FBB customs shop over in Northampton Mass. and all I can say is WOW! Matt's basses are incredible and put together really really well and sound great!(even sounded good played through a little gorilla combo at the shop). I like his neck shapes alot, the neck profile on the five strings I played look huge but they are super comfortable and easy to play. At the shop I had the opportunity to play Major Metal's Five string Dombro Prototype (#047-02 on the site) and a tenor five (#043-01 on the site) that he had in the shop. MAJOR METAL: Your bass in incredible! it has a real nice smooth and comfortable neck profile with awesome super clean midrange growl with a nice solid B string. You are going to love that bass and if you don't I will buy it Xush: Your single cut 8 string looks incredible! Thant is one of the greatest pieces of buckeye burl I have ever seen, awesome color. The neck is super smooth and the wenge/purpleheart neck combo with the maple veneer looks great. It looks almost done and I believe Matt said he would bring it home tonight to finish it up. Jon Chewning: the pics you got from Matt do not do that top justice, It looks like an awesome bass. Jason Carota: Your spalt single cut 6 looks awesome as well and I can't wait to see it finished. Wow, It was great to be able to go and check out Matt's shop and I really look forward to him building my single cut quilt maple top five string hopefully in the near future but after seeing the 43-01 I might get the lacewood top with a ziricote board, or maybe a claro walnut top like MAJOR METALS. This is a real hard decision!
