I mucked around with the 4 string in the shop on the weekend. It looks better in the flesh and is very versatile and easy to play. If I had the cash ...
Nice, I'd love to try one.

Heath, do you have a closeup pic of the back of the headstock? I really like the way its made.

Thanks for all those great shots. No doubt you have to work hard on this forum when you buy a new bass :yep

Those strings line up so nicely over the pickup pole pieces. Attention to fine detail.

Enjoy!

Weirdly, I am dreaming about it was a 32" sacle, and I bought one.

Hey man
Sorry the audio wasn't up to scratch for you, it can be tricky sometimes balancing it all. Another great Aussie bass luthier you might wanna check out up your way is Jeff Mallia. I played one of the jazz basses he made for Steve Hunter and it's pretty awesome!

I put a deposit on the 4 string at the Bass Centre on Friday. I thought it played and sounded great. Great looking bass too.
