    See, that's what I'd want to pursue with the Fanner build if it happens. How's your Fanner discussion coming, Mike?

    He said he would do a mockup on his computer last weekend, haven't heard back. I'll send an email later.

    Thanks Dan. I had originally used a plate on the back, but then found that the string through holes and ferules would work better.

    I was looking for a bass, and was interested in one of the new timber basses from magic fluke until I saw the price. Also saw a Rumbler w/ metal strings in my local MS , but for $300 was not impressed with the quality, as opposed to the tons of real basses 300 or less. I was only able to try out the Mikro, it was the only short scale they had. compared to the Kala, it looked like a much higher quality product. I ended up buying a transparent red open box one on MF at a discount off the street price of $180. Was also interested in the tapewounds, but am waiting to see if it's a keeper first. What are you guys using for a bag/case. Seems like any std electric guitar bag would work.

    I have a custom made gig bag that will fit up a 36” bass. Also, the miKro I posted earlier that was converted, is now a parts bass for an Ibanez junior guitar being converted to a bass by Patt’s Guitar repair. The miKro body was too big for me.

    MF carries a mikro bass specific gig bag. There's a big difference in scale and sound between a Rumbler and mikro, I've had both, quality isn't that much different.

    I use an electric guitar gig bag for my Mikrobass and it fits fine. The Mikro is only about 3 inches or so longer than a lot of electric guitars. Ibanez does sell a Mikrobass gig bag, but it gets some pretty bad reviews online, for not having much padding.
