    Yeah. Kevin from EB CS called Jason at DCGL and said it was alright to sell to me, even though im not an American. I talked to Jason yesterday and he was asking me what I said to them to let him sell it to me. He said last time he sold one to Canada, he got yelled at :lol:

    That's ernie ball? damn :lol: I didn't know he was an actual person. That natural one is damn hot though.

    am I the only one that finds it weird that the 3 of them all have the same glasses on? ... Now that I think about it, it could be eye protection or something :lol:

    1) Ernie Ball passed away a couple of years ago. The company is now run by his son Sterling, aka "Big Poppa". Dunno who those people are in the photo with JP and JM. Possibly Dargin and Dudley, two of their product development people.

    2) Yes, they're safety glasses.

    Such a kick-ass bodyshape. Make it a fretless and you've got yourself a deal

    Ooh! I want one with EMGs, a 64" scale length, maple fretboard, a TOM, purple sharktooth inlays, reverse headstock, Lundgrens, Kahler trem, ebony fretboard with no inlays, single coils, and 28 frets.

    For fifty bucks. Otherwise, no deal.

    All the other basses they offer come fretless, so I don't think this would be a problem.

    Myung probably has a fretless as well.

    I don't play bass anymore but if I was looking for a high-quality bass I'd either go Carvin 5 again or a Bongo. They look funky but they sound amazing! :agreed:
