I'm waiting on a final editing revision back before I post this month's Best of B-SPAN. In the meantime, here is a picture of a very pretty bass:
Of course, I have car problems and tuition to pay off before I can even think about picking up another bass (not to mention the bad luck that I've had with them). But: I played the single-cutaway version of this on Sunday, and it's got a very nice sound to it. The hollow body gives it an acoustic clarity that's rare, and it sounded pretty good with chords.
