    It arrived today. It just oozes with quality. Sounds great. Heavier than my Ibanez AFRWAP.
    Beeswax from Warwick is $65? Really? Is it worth it?

    No, regular cheap beeswax is just as good.

    So, what is the ETA for your new beast, @Hardy ? I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have come up with this time around!

    There is no ETA because they have a lot of work to do which was already waiting for weeks. The lockdown delayed it all.

    I bought a $$ 4 Fretless Natural from a seller in Portugal on Reverb last month. He shipped the bass on June 16 to Germany via CTT. Since June 17, the tracking status is „International shipping“ from Lisbon. DHL cannot provide more information, because the bass has not arrived in Germany („no scan“). They also cannot provide information on reasonable shipping duration in these times. Sucks... Any ideas on what to do? I have asked the seller to request an investigation from CTT and to claim insurance for lost goods, if they cannot find the bass within the next week.

    So I think, I just bought a new bass before dinner. Just sold my $$5FL, had some cash left. Fell in love with that Paddle Head with JJ configuration.... not a MOD
