OK, I'm officially jealous! Four beauties -- you luck dog!

I love your choice of the Alembic/Stealie on the Dark Star bass. Absoultely stunning and a great tribute to the best band in the world and the best bass luthiers in the world!

Very nice.......

In case you didn't know it, Art, some piece of human scum stole Austins' Dark Star some months back.

It's a masterpiece, and a very distinctive bass with the Ebony Laminates in the neck and body, and the Grateful Dead inlay.

Another set of eyes is a good thing, we can all look out for each other... there's always the possibility one of us will see or hear something of it -in which case we should contact Mica or Susan and Austin.

I certainly will be another set of eyes out here and will be glad to help if I can!
