    I wish I had a picture.

    The headstock logo was a question mark. Any ideas?

    Obviously, whomever made it doesn't know what the hell it is either.

    I know exactly who you're talking about. It's a friend of mine who lives in NH. His name is Brian Ristola. I'm sure that he has a web site but I'm not sure what it is. He also owns www.bestbassgear.com and you can contact him through there. You can also see pictures of some of his basses at www.rockcityguitar.com.

    When The Riddler was locked up in jail he had lots of time on his hands and took a luthery class.
  12. Maybe the OLP logo?
  13. Those Ristola basses look sweet.

    You're very welcome! I'm really glad that I could help. Brian is a fantastic person, you couldn't meet a nicer guy. His work is great. His basses play very well and they sound wonderful.
