A Memorial Day time out May 24, 2007Posted by daveintexas in drama, guitarsrockandroll, Work and Life and Love.
Mostly cause I need a break. It’s been a tough week.
It wasn’t all bad though.
My newest baby arrived this week, from the
communist bastards exquisite luthiers of the Carvin custom shop in Cah-leefor-nee=ya-ay.
I might have been a little frustrated about the length of time on this build. But the product was worth the wait.
It’s a five piece neck thru, Hawaiian Koa and maple. Pretty ain’t it?
Gold hardware, the wide humbuckers.
I decided not to put a veneer on the headstock this time. Good call Dave.
The “back” as we bassists refer to it.
and the back of the headstock, as those homos at BassPlayer magazine refer to it.
Abalone inlays on the ebony fretboard.
I got a chance to gig with it recently, after checking the settings (not bad from the custom shop… I did a little reset on E but that’s more me than them). I recommend.
It is a beautiful instrument, and I think I will keep it.
