Great find and outfit. Wood hoops with calf heads sound the best to me. Have a few duco's from the era with sm beavertail lugs. Did not know special order. Thanks!!

Just beautiful! Didn't know the small lugs were a special order thing. Thanks for that tidbit. of info. Wood hoops really add to the beauty. Does the bass have small BT lugs or are they the larger ones? Enjoy!
