Nice!
I can't wait to get a hold of that.

The headstock is the pointy JE cone.
Oval fret marker inlays.
Amber side LED with red at 12 and 24
Europa/Rogue electronics, so:
filter, pan, volume
Q, TCB, BCB, LED O/I

I'd love as many pics as can be posted.

This will be Alembic number 2 for me.

Your bass is completed, but it still needs the final inspection. Hopefully that will happen in the next couple of days and then I'll take some more pics!

No Dan, I'd never do something so cruel. Your bass is completed. Pics might have to wait until Monday tho.
