    I got an email about the vault having instruments, wow I'm ready to spend some money!

    "The Vault" now has a different meaning! Before, it was stuff that Sterling forgot was under his bed. Now, it's stuff you can buy.

    Which is even COOLER.

    Both Craig Young and I wanted that one way back when.

    It was reported that people actually did look for it....which may mean Dargin slid it under his bed, from whence no bass has ever escaped.

    Maybe it's been found in the meantime? No idea. But it's sure orange and dead cool.

    Couple quick thoughts on The Vault. First, I think it is awesome EBMM is making small batches or one-offs available to the general public without having to hunt one down at a retailer or pay premium pricing for scarcity. Second, ordering was a breeze - the website is very intuitive, communication about the order was perfect and the instrument was quickly shipped. Couldn't ask for a better process. Finally, every single instrument listed is aesthetically pleasing and there is plenty of variety. Whoever is deciding what to build is doing a phenomenal job!

    So... WHAT DID YOU GET?
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    Nice, would you mind posting some pictures of it?

    Sure! It was very difficult trying to capture the color on this one. My iPhone camera kept making it loo blue for whatever reason but these few turned out well. The third photo does a really good job of showing the subtle metallic sparkle in the finish.

    Just seeing this - I assume those are gone?
