Congrats, it's a beauty! I just took delivery of my custom Balance K Signature Deluxe a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely love it, as I know you must love yours! Looks, sounds, and balances great!

Welcome to the club Thibault. Seems there have been quite a few balance k sig deluxes winging their way around the world of late. The top on yours is particularly beautiful.

Many thanks for all your comments.
It's a while that I was searching for the right model on internet.
I saw this one 3 or 4 weeks ago and I immediatly loved the top and known that whatever the price I will buy is short.
I was impressed by the finition and details, the leds are cool too ;] I have now to find my sound, I will use it almost only for slap as I am usually a fretless player.
It's very easy to play, speed and clear, I am sure to have a lot of fun with this great bass.

Tention pour les graves ça risque de donner des séismes!! Le tour d'Eiffel, çà risque de trembler!!!

Félicitations! Ta basse est vraiment superbe! Le grain du bois est splendide! Elle vient de chez Peter de Iconguitars?
J'ai acheté ma SC Deluxe chez lui et le fond de la photo est identique!
Cheers! et bon slap!!!

my french is limited to high school classes...

I have to say I enjoy the phrase 'Bon Slap' !
(...don't remember that being in the tests)

I love that shape (Balance K?) ,with the cocobolo it is very sexy.

Elwood, hee hee, you're not trying.

Surely, this needs no translation:

"Ta basse est vraiment superbe!"

Or this:

"Le grain du bois est splendide!"

I've never been good with languages, and I have a hard enough time with English, but even I can tell that he likes the bass!
