Torino Red! That's killer! And Veebass should be penalized for causing robot chubbies with his Gold Top...
Oh Lord, of course - Nick's Dak Red Stang. My goodness that is one of the sweetest vintage basses I've ever heard.

Sadly, my red one is soon to fly the coop - a good friend is buying it for a Christmas gift to himself.

Carlo said he had another order for Australia when he was building mine. Mark's JAEbird and my NR are the only ones I am aware of though.

In good nick generally but someone's had a messy go at the headstock decal at some stage.

It's been through the hands of a few OBF members already, absoluletytonedeaf and Stinky Pete at least.

Thats a sweet red MTD - the traverse 'grain' really sets it off.
The Warmoth PJ shows how black block inlays make anything look transcendent - but then I've always liked block inlays....
I see..............basses!
