it was love at first sight.

i went bass shopping with my parents a few weeks ago. pete's bass shop is the premier luthier in town, so we naturally headed there. after trying out several chinese basses, pete pointed to a bass in the corner and indicated i should try it out.

i suppose it would be more accurate to say it was love at first pizz. (pizzicato - to play a stringed instrument by 'plucking' the strings)

it stood out impossibly well against the rest. literally too good to be true. i was able to take it home for a while to try it out, and not a thing could convince me it wasn't perfect.

and today it is officially mine. giddy would be an understatement. i don't have pictures because while it was at home, i was far too busy practicing to take photos, and now it is in the shop until thursday getting touched up to be brought home.

naming suggestions? that could keep me occupied until thursday. :)
