    Great SR5H Special demo

    Wasn't familiar with this guy, but the grooves are tasty, and the sound is fantastic. Great demo.

    Serious BFR GAS pains

    Quilted top? Flamed roasted neck?? Pearloid block inlays???

    This might actually be the most beautiful bass I've ever seen. I've always been reluctant to say that, but not in this case. Wow. ...

    Super sexy, huh ? Did you see that BFR SR5HH they've got? May be the most beautiful bass I've ever seen. And definitely the only EBMM I've ever seen with inlays (pearloid). Ugh.

    Same here, and I went there just to stare at it. I did play it, but given my lack of fretless chops, I went there just to ogle over it. I'd seen it on their site.

    Fun speculation. As for the oval holes, it seems likely that was just the design for the other prototype versions before the Old Smoothie design - at least the ones right before it. So all 8 holes...

    Love a nice silver. That Firemist Silver looks really good. The white pickup cover is definitely the way to go with that one, too.

    Well you know why they got rid of the phantom coil, don't you? Because you could only hear ghost ... notes.
