Just a little survey on what other basses you have.

I have only one non-Carvin bass. It was my first bass. The Peavey Milestone III.

I've always want to get a Ric.... Maybe someday.

My non-Carvin is a 1982 Gibson Victory, which is actually a rather sweet bass...the neck has yellowed very nicely over the years...

One of my pair of Jon Shuker 6 strings. The fretless is just like this one in every respect except, of course, the frets.

Still have my first bass; a 4 string pearl white gold tunered POS Aria Pro II bass. I have a 5 string Aria ProII bass I picked up along the way too. I don't know how it happened, but I picked up three basses of that brand up throughout my life. The B string on one the bolt neck 5 is terrible. The neckthrough was way better.

I also have a Fender Musicmaster (it's a schort scale!).

Thank-you...it's got charachter (imo)...How does she sound...Pretty much Gene Simmons on steriods...(same pick-up as the Ripper)...the angle gives it a nice twist (although it doubt it "really" effects the tone significantly)...Oh, and it'll sustain for about a month and a half Very Happy In fact, I can still feel the last note from my last gig Wink

Well, it wasn't exactly a commercial success (ran for 4 years I think). When you label something "the guitar for the 80's", you're bound to seal your own fate...I like it though.

There's a guitar shop in Florida which has an abundance of Gibson's late '70's and early '80's guitars. They're really interesting to look at. I bought two '79 Les Paul Pros from them, and have always been tempted to try one of the 'non-appreciated' versions, but haven't taken the plunge yet.

If ya get a chance, and can actually find one, the gibson victory "guitar" was an interesting creature (same basic shape as the bass, but smaller), the "thunderbirdish" headstock, and I beleive an h/s/h pickup config, bolt on neck, and some interesting switching options...It was supposed to bypass the Strat in every aspect...I've played a couple, and, they got some cool tones out of 'em, but, felt about as wierd as a guitar can feel...Almost like a half a baseball bat for a neck, and very 'slabish' (for lack of a better word)...took a bit to warm up to it, but, it was a VERY solid guitar, and I imagine as a result of its girth, had some punch and sustain...wouldn't mind having one around now for a conversation piece, but, would never have one as a main axe...It was an interesting era, that's for sure.

There is one for sale on this Florida site. It looks like a Strat. I kind of like the Corvus, or Futura look though..., you know, something a little weirder than 'normal'. They've got interesting Gibson basses too; an Explorer and a Grabber.

Cool bass jazzrat! Cool I didn't know there was such a thing as an A/E Fretless P-bass. How does she play and sound?

It was only produced for a few years in Japan. You still see them once in a while.
I sounds terriffic! The piezo is a little thin sounding but blended with the magnetic pup is has a really authentic upright sound.
Right now it has some old flatwounds which are really stiff. I just ordered some TI's for it which should make it play even bettler.

Jazzrat, that is really cool looking! I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. Funny, it almost makes me wonder if Carvin was emulating that with the AC40.

I'd have pictures of my new 5 string Jazz, but I'm waiting til I get the new pickguard and knobs I ordered for it...hee hee. Drool

Drewfus, which Lakland did you get?
