Being an impatientspoled kid inside out, I would already be dead.
I admire your patience. Of course, I understand the setback and the exceptionnal circumstances, no problem.
But that waiting.

I have the other basses to play. The result is more important for me than the delivery date.

@Hardy ... your 8 has enticed me and driven me to the edge... but you knew that this was coming and we talked about it.

I realized that it was time to take my frustrations out with what I really crave...

Another creative build session at the house of Warwick.
Today I finalized my new vision and ordered...

8 String Dolphin:

Grape Flavor / Solid Purple Transparent Satin
Solid Body AAA FLAME FRENCH ASH ( See Stuart Zander CS )en/Warwick---Products--Instruments--Customshop---Masterbuilt--Basic-Bass-Models--Signature-Models--Stuart-Zender-Signature--Stuart-Zender-Signature--4-string--Pictures.html
W/ Vintage Style Sculpted Smooth Round - Arm Rest Bevel
Matching Headstock
Abalone “W” Headstock Logo
100% Wenge Neck w/ Symmetrical matching Zebra Wide Grain
Extra Slim Neck
Tiger Stripe Ebony Fretboard (Pale Moon like White & Black contrasting grain)
Satin Chrome Hardware
Schaller Tuners ( Satin Chrome w/ Small Metal Knobs)
Dunlop Recessed Strap-Locks.
Brushed Silver Satin - Standard J/TJ Pickups
2 Band Mec PreAmp

I almost went with Purple side only LEDs and a Trim Pot wired to be an ON/ OFF / Dimmer Dial,
but for some reason I just could not rationalize the additional $3,000.00 USD for twinkle twinkle little stars
and the dimmable brightness / power.
I might regret it, but the WALL of Sound will more than make up for it.

Completion Date: 01.20.22

Didn’t mean to hi-jack your thread or build, will eventually make one for mine as things start to happen... knew of all peeps that you would especially appreciate that I got this going and had to share !
Excited for yours to be coming brother, and that it was the catalyst for me to get over the math and just go for it and make a new one spec’d out from scratch,.
So again my friend... THANKS!

8 String Double Bass Jam coming Spring 2022!

Totally on board with that Dolphin, minus the fretboard woods.
Tigerstripe ebony is just a waste product they market as being even more special then normal ebony, while being the complete opposite.

But don't let my nitpicking get you down, awesome choice man!

@CeeJ I had no time to answer before. I beg your pardon. My opinion about your project: YÄÄÄÄS SIRRR!!!! This is what I call a custom bass!!! The finish, the neck profile, the pus, the fretboard, the headstock logo, the body wood, the 8 strings!!! This is how you order your own bass! Completion date 01.20.22 - hehe! Whatever 01.20.22 means, just add two or three weeks now, harharhar!!! ROFL as ROFL can be!!!

Wow... that looks like a huge project. Congrats!

If you let me a little advice: please let's keep this thread to Hardy's Buzz8. That Dolphin deserves a separate thread. :)
