    Looks great, Bruce.



    I'm interested. We'll see if I can put enough money aside for an early bird before they all get bought up.



    Had to chuckle at your cue card reading.

        Cool looking designs, have been admiring these for years. But having the 'pick guard' in a place that picks don't strike, just for visual reasons, bugs me.



        But I hope it doesn't bug everyone and he sells a lot of them.

                Good to hear! About the pick guard design, that area is the most beat up with pick scrapings on my guitars, but then again, I'm pretty heavy handed... Hope he sells a bunch!

                        Personally, I never intended them to be actual 'pickguards' and have usually refered to them in the past as 'faceplates', or....when I'm feeling especially pretentious and artsy-fartsy..a 'styling element'. The last time I actually got any practical use out of a traditional pickuard anyway, was back in my folky, Harmony Sovereign days when I was flailing out the chords of Dylan songs.

                          I think this is an awesome move, guys! It's been fun watching all of this happen, and I like the way you've embraced new tech and marketing.



                          Time to think about a new bass...
