At long last, here are the first 6 Combustions. These will be at NAMM next week.

Just for the record, this is the Sklar Green we're all talking about, right? [img:1e5q4d78]http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w267/Smallmouth_Bass/D00066Z25CandyAppleGreen.jpg[/img:1e5q4d78] I think it would look great with some more sparkle in it. Maybe it's already there but just not showing in the picture.

A poster over at TalkBass reports that Sheldon says there's going to be Combustions with maple fingerboards: [quote="Bocete":1lfppx8g]Good news, everyone! Coming from the man himself, maple fretboards will be an option, and it seems that the headstock will be flat like on ABs, Zs and Primas. This is a radical change of some specs. We might be seeing more changes over time, I guess. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showpost. ... tcount=221 [/quote:1lfppx8g] That's the first I've heard of it, did Sheldon announce this anywhere? For the heck of it, here's a mockup of a maple-boarded Combustion: [img:1lfppx8g]http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/548/maple.jpg[/img:1lfppx8g]

I'm thrilled to see it :D Is start-shipping-in-April still on schedule?

Just a quick clarification. The Combustion, AB & SJ headstocks are flat (like Fender). Z's & Primas have angled headstocks (like Gibson - more or less). Sorry for any confusion.

A quick update. We had a few more wrinkles to iron out of this project. This has pushed back the release date to September. I'm sure most companies wouldn't be so anal about the details, or be such a PIA to the factory, but we're not most companies. I apologize for any wait induced anxiety. On a positive note, we'll be announcing two new Canadian made models later today.
