Thanks Jazzy. It would be interesting to find out the wood recipe. The top looks like flame koa.

I'm sure there are some guys who can identify woods far better than I can. I couldn't even guess what that is. How do you like it?
What Is great about these basses that great sounds can be found very quickly and repeatedly which makes it a breeze to use live. I love the quick tone change switches for bass and treble which are much faster to use when you want to quickly change tone mid song. I think If I was having a custom I'd try to incorporate those into it somehow even if it was a signature or series bass.

Jazzyvee, your descripton is spot on. I love the electronics on this bass.
The tone is consistantly mellow. I wonder if it has something to do with the wood recipe. I am thinking about installing flats on this one.
