    After 2 trips out to the West Coast (one to Marty Bell for this sick red to gold flip-flop re-fin, and one to SLO to fix the preamp I blew while re-assembling her [thanks AJ and Crew!!]), say hello to FireBall!

    My dream bass. A '93 body retrofit with a Stealth/Ebony SLO Special neck:

    Thanks guys! I really digs it.

    Color shift, flip-flop, chameleon...I tried to capture all the hues, but it's nearly impossible. Sometimes it's rasberry, then it's red, then gold, then orange, even green. The overall hue is best represented in the first pic.

    And yes, MB does some mighty fine work! This was my third job with him (with 2 more on the way), and I can't recommend him enough. Fast, top-notch quality at a reasonable price, and an absolute pleasure to do business with.

    I'm a left hander who plays right handed, so I guess that makes me confused.
