    I would purchase this bass if it would let me play 1/100th as well as Roy Vogt:)

    Alas, it won’t.

    Wayne R,

  2. Why would they mix green with blue , seems other colors would be more appropriate , anyhow it still looks good and well built. !!!

      I don´t like this mix too, even on Pedulla basses.
      Take care, Mark!

    The price isn’t bad for a bass with all those features. If I can put a piezo bridge on it, I’ll get one.?

  4. Pretty cool, but I wish Carvin/Keisel would support wider bridge spacing. 16.25 mm? What is this? A bass for ants?! /zoolander
