Glenn ,

Thank you sharing very critical information , this will work for all others and myself.

First picture is the greatest one , I prefer the microdol 1+1. First picture tones have excellent dark grey space and is the best . What was your lens for that picture ?

Redwoods , best tone wood for bass guitars with poplar and mahagony. For last 30 years , they banned for use these old thick diameter redwoods in US and Fender is growing his own woods and cut when they are younger. I saw they assemble a Fender Mexico Jazz Bass body out of 8 thin sections of that wood , not solid. Thats why solid ones are super expensive.
