Hey Pete,

I met you very briefly at the Texas Guitar Show. I can't being to express how wowed I am over your basses. Great and awesome stuff. I was thinking about trying to trade out my Modulus Q6 for some cash, and if I can, this will be the first place I come.

But do you do custom inlays? If so, I'm assuming the up-charge would be based on the intacracy, materials, labor, and the like. But I was just wondering if there was a rough system for determaning this at all.

Well just to field this one a little bit:



Short answer, yes, Pete can work with you on custom inlays. Some he does himself, others he sends off, at least at present. I couldnt tell you about pricing on such things, but figured I could at least share an example of it being done for you Smile

*Smacks head.*

I think I remember the TB topic with that in it, paying homage to Pete's heritage, right?

Hah, thank you.

Actually its Tom Bowlus' bass. He happens to also be Norse, like Pete, so in a round about way its paying homage to Pete's roots, but to be more precise, its Tom's roots being payed homage too hehe.

I thought it was his, but I was afraid I was going to butcher his name. But either way, the sentimental value of that bass just increased!

Hey Trixx ,

As Dave has said , yes I can do custom inlay . I am in the process of working with lasers to do somewhat intricate work but keep the overall cost down . Cost can be figured pretty easy provided I see the design and know what you want for materials . Great Question !

Stay tuned ,

Pete

Don't worry, most people do butcher it! Wink

And thank you for your kind words. I am truly looking forward to this instrument. The inlays add a great touch, and I think that they compliment the beautiful woods Pete put together (with a lot of help from Juneau sending me photos and whatnot - thanks again!).

Tom.

Actually, being adopted, I am a bit of a genetic grab bag, but I am most definitely Anglo Saxon of some type, and I certainly do feel more Norse than anything, but the truth is I'm probably more German than anything. But, even my German friends do think that I am a "confused Viking" (meaning that I should have been born into a different age and place) and call me "Sven", so regardless of biological heritage, I do feel like this bass (and the inlays) represent "me."

Later, Tom.

Haha, "confused Viking" has made my day. The first thing that popped into my mind was a confused Thor smashing Loki over the head with his hammer...

Thanks for the reply Pete. If I ever have the funds come in sometime soon you'll be sure to hear from me!

It sounds even better when said in a heavy German accent! Cool
