    The middle strips almost look like another wood. That or very very light wenge. Stunning bass you have there. 97?

    They were typically Wenge and Bubinga, right?

    As for the year.... This bass is a bit of anomaly. It looks as though someone forgot to stamp the last bit of the serial number. Based on the build specs, it is estimated to be a 97 or 98.

    Well, as beautiful as this bass looks and sounds, it unfortunately has some serious neck issues. I had to send it back.

    Damn, it sounded fantastic, but it was almost unplayable. It had a bad “Ski Jump”.... Notes started fretting out around the 19th fret. It’s really too bad. I don’t think it was going to be possible to get the relief out of the neck. I’m pretty bummed. Oh well. At least I’m not stuck with it. I’ll find another Thumb NT.
