Again, congrats sir. This will be a formidable bass indeed. The effect of a slanted pup is powerful. Perhaps the audience should be warned of intense vibrations before the gig.

The bridge p/up is longer than the neck p/up, please tell me why.

2400 wattman,
the string width needs a longer pickup, thus a 7 strings pickup..
while the regular AXY56 is enough for the neck position...

Roberto,

I was checking out your 7 string bass.
It's truly breathtaking.

I am so happy for you man, believe me -- I know
what is running through your heart right now, and it's your design and there's nothing in the world like it...

Yes, I know this feeling very well, and this is what I want you to do...

When you get your bass, let a child play it and feel it -- for "You" was once that child -- and it takes great things, to make you feel as a child...

Also, try to remember this moment, if its truly
as special as I believe it is...(Very special).

Lastly:

I was trying to email this message at your yahoo account, but I kept getting errors, so maybe the heavens and the universe wanted me to give you this message here...

which I said, I would never post again -- but I made an exception for your exceptional bass.

Peace and Love,

Hal-

Roberto,

I envy you

I can sense your excitement and eagerness. What a distinctive and beautiful bass. I do not think that I have seen Lacewood top before.

Congratulations
