    Holy laminates!
    That looks like a really nice bass though even though I have no clue who builds it.

  4. It looks like the builder might have liked CT. Hmmm its an interesting combination whatever it is lol!
  5. I was thinking that by the looks of the upper 'horn'...I'm really interested....I hope somebody knows.

    That bass kind of reminds me of this one. The bass pictured is a 6-string fretless made by a relatively unknown luthier Sami Lehtinen. The player is Jaan Wessman, on a gig with Mike Keneally. Just thought I'd like to post this. :)

    Maybe i'm crazy, but to me it looks kind of similar to one of les's basses.....
  9. whoa, nice bass...

    can't wait for Hall-moe.-ween at the ryman next sunday :D
  10. Wouldn't all the glue required to put together one of those basses hurt the tone?
  11. Apparently not, as long as it's done right. Many builders have made crazy laminate basses with many different woods and they all came out sounding real good. I think there was a discussion on this somewhere on these forums.

    I dont think its a CT, headstock is all wrong.
  13. Looks like a cross between a bee bass and a carl thompson and a butcher block. obvioulsy a custom. just email that moe's websight and ask. they can't possible be that famous.
