So maybe I'll take some lessons

What do you think? Jerusalem is 40 min drive from Tel Aviv. And he's charging only $40 for a lesson.

A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Why not? Seems like a lot of good things bass related are happening in Israel these days. Ever check out anything by Gil Yaron or B&G guitars? Come to think of it, Harvey's last name was originally Goldstein. I wonder if there's any relation between him and Yotam Goldstein from B&G.

Yes they gave me a tour. The bass was still a prototype then.

Yes. It didn't have pickups when I saw it.

I wanted to order a non-cutaway slotted headstock short-scale version, they said they don't do short scales yet but when they do, they will build me one. Like a bass version of this -
