I've been getting some really great reactions on this bass! Two ace players from The Netherlands tested the Brooks EB-PL Noir and wrote some cool quotes about it.

"Black is beautiful, but it sounds great too! 100% balanced sound in every position. With a nice growl to it, that makes it cut through. This bass is a love baby from Rickenbacker and Fender, trapped in a vintage Gibson body. A piece of art."
Ivo Severijns (ex- Herman Brood & his Wild Romance, ex -Kane, Waylon)

"I absolutely love it when old school meets new school! This bass has the looks and feel of a classic Gibson with the sound of a Telecaster bass on acid. It's simple yet very diverse. From a warm vintage sound to a killer modern rock growl... This monster has it all!"
Rob van der Loo (ex-Delain, Epica, MaYaN)

Thank you John.
I'll post it when it's really ready.
I hope to get it done by the end of the week.

I did not realize it was trans black. They are both such nice basses.

An 8 string Hammer like one would be cool.
