My third offset... the CS Bass VI has arrived!!!

Post by Sebastian » Sun Feb 11, 2007 12:04 pm

After six months it is here... what a GREAT instrument! I play bass and guitar in different bands, and this one really seems to combine both - the solution of all problems! ;)

Well, what can I say - it looks, plays & sounds wonderful... I don't use the "strangle" switch on my Jags, but on the VI it seems very useful - turn it off for use as a bass, and turn it on for twangy Cure-style guitar melodies. These Jag/Jazz bridges don't work for me, so I installed a mustang bridge.
I'll post pictures as soon as possible, I don't have a camera at the moment.

I only wonder about the Certificate of Authenticity - it dates to 11/16/06, why does the shipment to Europe take three months? Or are they made before the instrument is completed?

Anyway - it is here since friday, and I already wrote two songs on it, it really opens new gates to creativity... I'll stop posting now, I need to play!  :)

I have a huge suspicion that it's going to look exactly like the other sunburst ones. Who wants to bet?  :)
And I'm sure it's beautiful.
