    Since this is the maternity ward; possible pregnancy

    So I sheepishly emailed Leo asking if they could make me a "Deluxe" version of the 44-64 P bass, somewhat hoping the answer was "sorry, we don't make that". And of course, he responded "sure, let me get you a quote". Then 36hrs later, I get a very reasonable quote for the below spec.

    - 4464 P bass
    - quilted maple top
    - Trans red
    - pearloid white pickguard
    - maple neck * we can do birdseye maple or straight grain maple
    - MOP dots * on fretboard only , not side dots
    - Geezer pups

    May need to wait and see if the taxman causes any issues first, but yes, I think this will be a seriously cool Motown bass (flats of course). Kind of a merge between the Funk Machine and Dorothy's red glitter slippers. It is based on Ricky Minor's red Sadowsky to a large degree (Bluesy Cat has one too) that I've been eying for quite some time and since I have a Sadowsky J, I figured the P might be a nice way to get the same look.

    My wife is going to be thrilled....
