Are you going for the JPJ setup?

Looks like a killer bass, congrats! (again) :-)

I have bad timing to see your bass in spray. Here's a picture of it hanging to dry between coats:

I hope to get you a better picture soon!

It's finished and should be leaving us today. Her's a preview snapshot:

In all the blackness, you can't see that there's the extra standby switch you requested, as well as the LED on/off switch.

A Europa with signature electronics, got to sound great.
Sorry it doesn't suit you but I hope you get a good price for it.

I wish I had the cash to take it off your hands. But the only bass I could just about sacrifice for that is my Elan 4.

That thing is bad. And I mean that in a Run/DMC sort of way: "Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good".

If I played it I would bet that I would leave your house with it. Good thing for my checking account that you're on the other side of the big pond. I hope you find a buyer who is going to appreciate it!

This bass is now mine. It arrived today from Austria. I will try it out tonight and hear how the difference is between this one and my other Europa and my other alembics.

Yeah you will love it when it arrives. I just love the sound of it. My only minor issue with it is my fingers have become used to the standard string spacing on my other basses, so playing this one takes a bit of time to adjust to the narrower neck and string spacing especially when i had to slap and pop.
