New to the farm.

The Lake Placid Blue Jazz on the left is a 1972. It is in pristine condition! Picked it up around 4 months ago. I am a sucker for vintage Fenders and Block inlays! Got them in one bass!

The Sunburst one on the right is also a 1972. I saw it for sale around a month ago and I knew I had to have it! This puppy is just dripping with mojo! This bass was well played! And very light for a 70's era bass. I've been playing the heck out of this bass since I got it, it is kind of a "dream come true" bass for me! Cool thing too, it came with the original case, PU covers (the bridge one still has what is left of the foam mutes) and the original owners manual!

This is my Custom Philthy Bass!
It's a Koa body with a Rosewood 22fr on Maple Jazz-style neck with Abalone dot inlays.
The neck p/u is a Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Jazz and the Bridge p/u is a Carvin HB4 - both powered by a custom active 18v circuit (two 9-volt batteries!).

GREAT build! I'd love to hear/play that - it has got to be a tone monster Guitar

I see you had to knock over a NY taxi driver to get his seat for your strap Laughing

My main squeeze these days has a Fender alder body/Warmoth neck with pau ferro fingerboard (I call it a Fenmoth) with '62 vintage pups, BA bridge, Hipshot 'lollipop' tuners, and varitone for passive attack. Poor camera pic Embarassed

And the family has grown. The G&L is moving out, and only Musicmans remain. Of course I still have my carvin basses. I love those, possibly more than the music man basses. But I can't get that awesome stingray growl from a carvin unfortunately.

Well, I'm a skinny-stringer and not a bass-thumper (or as I tell people, I'm a guitar play who can play bass, but I'm not a bass guitarist), but I do have one bass that I've used on all my at-home, solo recordings. Nothing fancy, but I just love the way it sounds -- an ash Made-in-Mexico Fender Jazz Bass that I bought at GC maybe five or six years ago for something like $300, I think. I asked my band's bass guitarist to have a whirl on it one night so I could hear what it sounded like in the hands of a real bass guy, and holy crap, did it sound good. And for someone like me with short fingers and a small hand, I can actually handle this nicely. So, meet "Ashley":

nifty on the swap for the esp~classic bass yet crazy bass, thats how i see it. did you ever once think to go 5 strings, why not? i revised my bass sticking to 4, just could not step up. (funny is when i was considering a 5'er, it was a knock brand that looked exactly like Paul's...color n' all.)

but you're keeping the strap, right?
