Hi everybody, I received my new bass this afternoon.
This bass is the most perfect bass I never seen, played, touched .... neck is perfect, sound is .. Alembic BUT with significant sweet deep, something of very cordial (qui vient du coeur et des tripes)..
This bass is one of the most pretty I naver had.

Thank's.

Fort the little story, when I bought this at basscentral, I ask to have PERFECT neck .. and the bass go back to the factory from Florida !
After one week, I received the bass with perfect adjustment !

Nice top, I love the way the bridge looks like it's sucking the quilt in. Very cool.

Another beautiful bass PierreYves. I love the gold mother of pearl and the top quilt is a fascinating pattern.

graeme

p.s. I'll say nothing about the tailpiece being off-centre ;-)

Congratulations PierreYves.

She already looks quite at home against your textured walls. That quilt pattern is unique.

en plus légère, très agréable à porter et à jouer malgré la longueur du manche, pas comme la 5 cordes...

There is an intermittent bug in the software that causes the program to lose pictures. It's been happening for quite a while now, though not frequently. Mica has been trying to solve the problem, and has done a lot of troubleshooting and consulting with the program's tech support; but the source of the problem still remains a mystery. At this point all that can be done is for you to repost the pictures.

Ok I will do.
why you use so complicated, slow, hard soft for your club ? you have more easier, faster, lighter open source program as phpBB forum, like mine:
