Hi Bob,
Just wanted to let you know that my 63 Custom 2 pickup bass arrived yesterday afternoon and I am THRILLED. The paint,workmanship and overall quality is excellent!!!!!!. This is my first Hallmark but it definitely won't be my last. A matching 6 string guitar and Hopefully I can convince you to make me a 12 string matching guitar will be next, and then I can concentrate on the colors I want. One can never have enough Hallmark guitars. I had Mosrite 6 and 12 strings in the late 60's and early 70's and I feel that the Hallmark instrument not only meets but exceeds them.
Wishing you much continued success.
Regards
Ken :D

It's a 3 tone sunburst. I tried to post a picture but can't get it to work. It is an excellent guitar.

Thanks. I'm wondering how it sounds compared to a Mosrite due to the scale length being longer. I don't think I've played a 32" bass before.

Austin,
I wish I could help you with that question but I have never played a Mosrite bass before. Contact Bob Shade at Hallmark, I am sure he could tell you any differences in sound between Hallmark and Mosrite bass guitars. He is soooooo knowledgeable about Mosrite guitars and Basses.
Regards
Ken
