  2. I for one think that bass is beautiful.

    Do you have any sound clips?

    no clips yet.

    very organic sounding...more than usual for a lightwave.

    Well, if the sound justifies the looks...:D



    I am one of those people that aren't extremely fond of those, but hey, you bought it, so as long as it's good for you, great! How much are those things?

    Wow. I thought Spalts were much more expensive... or is that a used price?

    Actually, that is a VERY nice lookin' bass. I don't care for Spalts on whole, but that one has just the right combination of features to get the thumbs up from me.

    Diggin it.

    Where's the rear strap pin?
     
  8. I think I played that one at the Dallas Guitar Show a couple of weeks ago. It's a very nice bass. Michael seems like a great guy and the quality of the instruments was excellent.

    Andrew: i'm having the neck sprayed with a satin laq...it was bare wood before.

    Brendan: Spalt opted for a straplock in the rear position. lower left.

    this bass isn't used, unless you consider me having it for a week used. i baby my stuff!

    consider it a blowout.

    i'd buy it, but as you can imagine, i'm strapped for $$$.

    :D

    I'm not a big fan of the looks, but I bet this bass has a pretty cool tone.
