The journey is just beginning.  I've had mine for well over five years now, and the journey continuously unfolds into new places to be explored.  Enjoy!

Superb! Congratulations, John, I will assume you are feeling the same emotions that I did 10 years ago. It's a shame we don't live closer; what a sight we would be on stage...  :-)
Enjoy, and get ready for the comments/compliments when you take her out, it's actually quite fun!

Correction: there is 'much' money to be made above the fifth fret....

Thanks Chris. That would be mind blowing; two Buckeye Burl Triple Omega Alembics in the same place at the same time!
 
Ok, one more picture.

Sweet Mother of Pearl! A perfect bookmatch to center front & back....Holy Shinola. Just superb...
Just a word of advice, my friend; when you're out & about with her, watch her like a hawk, as a mother would watch a child. There are predators out there looking for an opportunity. That being said, I do not let my investment 'sit at home'; she has attained 'main bass' stature and I enjoy her as much as I can on stage, but remain vigilant during the process. Just my .02...
 
Be safe in your travels, Batman, Commissioner Gordon would be proud.....

John, that looks utterly amazing; my favourite body shape combined with my favourite wood. One question; are you really big, or is the body downsized from what they'd use on a bass? I'm 6ft and I'd swear my Triple O bass looked a lot bigger than that on me.

I am 8 feet tall and weigh 450lbs.
(Not really. I am a large man, but the guitar is a little wider than a Les Paul in the lower bouts, but otherwise about the same as a strat. And, yes Shaun, I have wanted a triple omega ever since I saw Johnny Winter's guitar in 1974.)
