Roscoe out... Callowhill in! (New bass content w/ pics)
« on: June 30, 2008, 11:19:58 AM »
I posted this over at TB and figured I'd share with the crew here...

I called Tim @ Callowhill on Friday to talk about his Junk series since I've been gassin' for one lately, and it turns out that my timing was perfect.  I mentioned that I'd be selling my Roscoe 6'er and was looking to get my hands on a Junk, but was hoping that there would be a J5 in stock so I wouldn't have to mess with any loaner axe.  It turns out that he actually has a 6-string Junk prototype that is almost ready... the only thing that it needs is a custom hipshot bridge which is a couple of weeks out.  He had a dealer that was getting ready to post it as a coming soon item", but he was willing to give me first stab at it.

He sent me the pics, and I knew right away that I had to have it so I called dibs on it immediately.  Since my Roscoe has a buyer and we'll be completing the sale this week, that will seal the deal and this baby will be coming my way as soon as the bridge is ready!

And because we all know the rules... here are the pics!







When he told me it was a natural finish, was tempted to have him refinish it to the burst like Tone Whitfield has on his J or put a pickguard on it because that's what got my GAS going at first.  But man, when I saw these pics... that natural finish just sings all by itself so I'm not gonna mess with it.

I can't wait to get it in my hands!

Specs... figured ash body, pau ferro FB, maple neck, Nordstrand Big Split p/u's, Aggie OBP-3 pre w/ VTC.

That is tight!!  I'm hoping to talk to Tim about my Junk5 next week.  But I'm gonna have to wait the full time.  The grain on the bass is sick and that fretboard is sweet!!
Congrats man!!

Yes sir!  Turns out this one wasnt for Mo Fitz after all, he said Mo wants a 4, kinda like a black one that he put together recently (which looked incredibly HOT).

At first when you put the Roscoe up for sale I thought, "Has that boy lost his mind?  What is he think.....[sees the Callowhill] Oh.....Oh my.......Well now.   I ain't mad at ya, hoss!"

Now remember, sound clips are MANDATORY

Peace,

I might need to rethink getting a motif, and talk to Tim myself.

I just scored a Motif es7, so I'll have to wait on my Callowhill. The good news is that I don't have to turn down gigs because I don't have a keyboard. Which means, more cash flow, thus a new bass soon.

Wow Thumpa, let me know when you plug that thing in so I can look into the Horizon in ATX and see the sonic waves...

Congrats, that's a think of beauty... maybe one day when I grow up....LOL!

With all my Travel expenses lately... the only G.A.S.  I can satisfy, is putting some strings on lay-a-way.

But I rejoice with you Brother!

I think I can offically say this.

bassthumpa, welcome to the "I can hit you with the brown note whenever I feel like it and there isn't anything you can do about it" club.   :D :D :D :D

they might not like it, but you guaranteed to get them standing on their feet.
You might even get a little "shout" dance as well. ;)

What pickup location are you going with, Jeremy?

I wish I could hear that 2-7 spacing. 
basshthumpa, you gotta let us know what that's like.  Sound clips would be the best way.  ;D

for this one I'm going with a completely passive bass

70's pickup spacing (i like the 60's a whole lot, but I'm going to give the 70's a shot)
Nordstand Dual coils with a switch for series/single/parallel for each pickup.

You should have all kinds of options right there.  I'm leaning towards the 70's too...at this moment. lol
