Custom Case Builders in Oz?

Which Oz-based custom case builder would you recommend? I want one for my Mackie desk.
Has anybody had any joy from going to a cabinet/kitchen maker?

All that glass.
It's wildly inappropriate for the venue we're playing, but it's just been repaired after arriving broken, so I'm taking it out for a spin.
Turn up. Play soft.
Although in this case it's: "Half power, master volume to 2. Play with a feather."

Bass centre do.
Yes, I traded in a Sandberg to buy a Stingray. There were both used, though.
I haven't seen the Sandberg pop up in the Used section of their website, so they may have had someone in mind already. I was decently happy with the changeover price.

How much is this Bass worth as a Bass, leaving aside any supernatural edification?

Re: Buying a secondhand bass from a private seller in the UK - Rosewood neck

It is laborious. I think a decent division would be that the sender does the legwork and the buyer pays the fee.
Either way, it's another $150 on the price of a Bass.

I'm very glad I got mine before the Rosewood addition.

Errant "of"s. As in: "I wouldn't of," or "he's not that good of a player."

Re: >1K bass import via Thomann and Customs/GST??

Not sure if there's any paperwork, it's a Tariff Concession. There is also no duty on a "Solid Body Electric Bass Guitar" no matter which country it is manufactured in, due to the following Tariff Concession, which is a customs ruling that overrides the original 5% duty rate - TC 9305368 Tariff 9207...

The only thing you're up for is GST. There is no import duty on electric basses.

Re: NAD - Trace Elliot V8

To their estimable credit, the insurance company came back and said, "Get everything you need to repair it and we'll cover everything up to the full amount for which you insured it." Fantastic. A real load off my mind.
