*Sigh* is right. I'm coming up on week 8 of my Aries bass wait. I told my GF today that after the *estimated* 10 weeks, every extra day is going to be like a week in itself.

The last custom shop instrument we got was the incredible Claro SH550 for my wife. :)

Ok, so here's an SH550 for the youngest - for turning 25.

We got GAS, cravings, and a bunch of other symptoms. Plus, with time passing, we got the itch. For newbies, the itch is a bad/late stage sign. I figured with him still doing 3 services a week plus a practice (no rotations, only guitar in the band, and guitar-led for the last few years rather than keyboard led) he is well worth it.

MIKE JONES did the call with me. I was surprisingly a bit nervous on the call. It's still exciting for me! Mike was wonderful (but we already knew and expected that).

Specs:
Standard neck and body wood
14 radius
Metal covers
2 volume, 2 tone
White/white in gloss, including headstock
Standard headstock
White painted neck and back of body
Hard tail
Gold hardware, gold logo
Black painted body binding stripe
Black ebony board with less variation
No inlays
Stainless medium jumbos
Ebony back cavity cover
White truss rod cover engraved: 25

I asked for one special request. Mike then asked, and the answer was "YES". It's nothing crazy in terms of the build, just something special for the 25th birthday. I'll show the request in pics when it arrives. The YES on this request is the kind of amazing closeness we get with this family and their employees building our instruments for us.

We continue to love this shop, and their product, and their process. And in the midst of major changes over the years, the bottom line of Quality/Cost is still totally amazing.

THANKS MIKE JONES, and THANKS JEFF for the YES. :)

We continue to love you guys.

...........and now, the wait...............

I think she is in the pic of the day.

Are the metal covers gold? Can't tell on this device.
