We've got a run of tweaked out Prima Artists and Z's going on right now. I thought I'd post some photos because a lot of this stuff is either new or one off. The buffalo inlay was done by Ron Thorn. The silver bordered D logo was done by us to match Ron's inlay. The interlocking Bass Cleffs signify a cross and was the idea of David the customer. Pretty cool idea. The paua bars are oversized to match the larger 6-string neck. I like the look.

Man, the matching headstock on the SJ was a great idea! :D Since Sheldon has been in pimp-mode lately, i wonder how long will it be until we see transparent finishes and fancy tops on the SJ? :) Mark

"Sheldon, what is the wood combination of the body (bass/treble)? " Walnut on the bass side, alder on the treble. Your Z is similar with high density ash on the bass side and low density ash on the treble. "i see under the table headstock with 4 holes on the right size" That's a 5-string headstock. What looks like an extra tuner hole is behind the headstock. "Man, the matching headstock on the SJ was a great idea! Very Happy" Yeah, I wish I'd have thought of that. "Since Sheldon has been in pimp-mode lately, i wonder how long will it be until we see transparent finishes and fancy tops on the SJ? Smile " That depends on interest.

ABII woods on an SJ would be bad ass Sheldon. 8) It would be the DW version of the highly coveted Fender Walnut P.

Sheldon, Any more pics of the Buffalo bass? I'm curious to see how the body is coming along. Can't wait to see it finished... Rob p.s. the D looks great and it looks like a great match with the inlay.

For now here's a few shots of the first 6-string Prima Artist in the new body shape.
