Shoot, I don't have to wait nowhere near as long as the rest of you, but I'm already dying over here.  I'd go crazy waiting for 4-6 months!

What's the ETA on the J(unk)6?

It all depends on hipshot, he's doing some finishing touches on it, so the bridge is really the only missing piece.  Tim is actually more frustrated about it than I am (cuz I'm not really furstrated at all, lol).  He sent me and email last night saying that he was gonna turn up the heat on those guys to get the bridge done, so I'm sure someone over there will be feeling a bit of fire.  8)

I want to ask a quick question because I've been out of the LGm loop for a while. What does these Callowhill basses bring that Ken smith, MTD, Roscoe, or any other boutique basses are missing???? The reason Im asking is because the  Lord has blessed me and my wife with a new house, and I have a new job that allows me to finally justify buying a boutique bass?

It's all subjective.  Some may feel that <X> offers something that <y> or <z> don't, others feel the complete opposite, some mixed somewhere in the middle. 

It's all about what feels good in your hands and sounds good to you, because one person's preference is NEVER gonna apply to everyone.  Try them all if you can and find what's right for you.

For me, from what I've seen and heard, this axe should give me the feel and tone that I've been wanting lately.  Does that make it better than my previous Roscoe basses?  For me perhaps, but in general, not necessarily.

I have also read that Tim worked very closely with a few notable gospel bassists in the development of the Callowhill bass and it's sound.  No other company has really catered to this genre.  I can repsect that.  He seems to really want to give you exactly what you want and not want to break the bank while doing it considering what he gives you in the end, which is a very high quality instrument.  Now I'm just waiting until I got the extra money to pick up one from him too.

I'm trippin'.  Tim is a cool guy, and he really does cater to the gospel genre.

Here is an interview I did with him on gospelbasslines.com

There was an alightment problem that hipshot managed to catch before shipping the bridge, so that has added to the wait time.  Still, not too far away...

Aw man, glad they caught it but it but I’m sure that stings a little.  I’m hoping Tim can get started on mine pretty soon.  I know the shop move and then the planner on the foot (that had to hurt!) has to get taken care of.


Looking forward to the pics and reviews….and some youtube or other clips? ;)
