    I have been always tempted to play one of these, they look great and I believe that they play great as well

    It's awesome. I'm very curious how the break angle over the bridge works with the tailpiece like that. I'm interested in a similar design for using Piezo bridges for nylon strings without relying on a ballend.

    I ended browsing the guy's FB page for quite a while. He makes some beautiful looking basses. If I had the money I'd contact him for some work immediately... Being a broke ass college student sucks sometimes =(

    I should add ... this 11 is unfinished and is currently being sanded and finished, the photo in the first post is quick and rough and shouldn't be taken as an example of the luthier's photography :)

    The body has such a beautiful slim 3d shape ...

    ^^^If that is unfinished than I'm itching to see what the final product will look like. It looks gorgeous just natural

    Yeah I talked with him on email a little. I'd love to buy an ERB, but when you get into 9 or more strings the line between bass and guitar really gets fuzzy, so I'm more inclined to go for a huge number of strings on a guitar. Otherwise I'd have to start working on my bass technique, and I'm having a hard enough time sucking at one instrument, much less two. :lol: Still, there's something intriguing about an ERB.

    From his facebook page, possible bargain:
    "Lightly used 10 strings multiscale bass available... if interested drop me a line :) I have three basses, 4 amps and never gig. Must clear some space."
    Apparently the 11 is complete and photos are coming.

    Great bass and it would take way more talent than I will ever have to play something like that.
    That video was great, I was hoping to see it in action..
