    No, that's the case from the White Limited Run. Mine has the brown leather wrapped case with black interior and BFR badging. Never seen a Redwood Special without the brown case except that one!

    Here's mine. Sounds incredible and only weighs 8.4 lbs. This one came to me in a trade from Denmark so maybe there's more in the US now

    indeed. the awe you feel when playing a 900 year old log (yea yea i know, its only a top.. but still)

    its crazy. it was there during the first and second world war. the civil war. the lutheran reformation. the dark middle ages. gutenberg inventing printing. salvador dali and da vinci. leiv eriksson going to america.

    treat it nice so karma doesnt come back and bite you

    MrM

    ps. the mahogany neck is something else too
    flats for the bongo!
    roundwounds for the fretless!

    eb customer support:
    E-mail: musicman_customerservice@ernieball.com
    Telephone: +1 866-823-2255

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    Hello! I bought BFR bass!
    It is very interesting to listen to it, HOW it sounds - a tree of 1000 years old

    Yes, thank you, I bought it on Reverb! I hope there are no hidden defects in it and it sounds good
