    If you can make it to Bass Summit IV in Mobile AL, and would like to demo any of the FBB's Matt has in-stock, which would it be?

    I'm working on a plan w/ Matt to have a couple from his site at the Summit.
    any in particular appeal to you?

    He doesn't expect the 7 to still be around by then, but we'll see...

    browse around the in-stock page, see if anything jumps out at you.

    NO!!! The 7 is a MUST!!!
    I guess if that one can't make it, I'd like to see either the SC 6 or the buckeye SC 4 with LPs.

    Bump.
    And it would be cool to see that "Shimmer Wood". That's kind of intriguing. But HOLY CRAP I want to play that 7 string!!

    I would guess #47 was one of the first completed in '02. It is the Dombro prototype, so he may have been working on it for a while. I'd estimate late 2001 to early 2002.


    I'll check and get back to you.
     
  13. Uhhhhh, how 'bout sunny CA? I'm left singly manning the FBB fort out here, dude.

    Well damn. If a Roman Emperor said it has to be, then I guess we have no choice!
    MAKE IT SO!!
    :D
     
  19. well he should bring something that sets him apart. i think the 043-01 is fairly "different" looking. it also couldn't hurt to capitalize on the current fads either, so i think the burl singlecut should go.
