I have been banging on this wonderful instrument for about 2 months now and really enjoy it. Its clarity and ease of play allow me to shift effortlessly between traditional and experimental styles. The instrument is so sensitive and responsive that hand/shoulder fatigue is not an option. I've played this bass in practice situations and in a large room (see next entry) and the sound leaps out into the room with force and clarity. I am enjoying this experience immensely and look forward to the next creation. Also, I have to keep telling myself it is 32" scale because there is no loss of bottom. Hey, Rick! Where's the (semi)fretless version?

This is the Moby-Dick of the instrument world. The approach and idea is so subtle, yet the overall effect is so powerful and leviathan-esque.

I am, as always, in awe of your work Rick!
