Hi Mica,
Many thanks for the update. It looks very nice indeed. When does Susan do her magic with the neck inlay?

Hi David,

Your bass is in preset right now:
preset
That means it's time for the inlays (including the custom one @ th 12th fret) and frets to go in. We'll also set up the bass and send the hardware to the goldplater while the rest of the finish work is completed.

Hi Mica,

I will be in San Francisco the end of July. Any chance the bass will be ready by then? It will save a bunch of air freight and taxes for me...

Cheers

Chances are that it will be ready for you to carry home. We are about a 45 minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge, so I hope you'll have a half a day to come and pick up your bass, meet the staff and take the tour while you're in the area.

Hi Mica,
How is Tonbu progressing? I'm looking forward to the visit - I watched the presentation you made on the atelier on the web site with great admiration. Happy July 4th
