Damn, its about time you got over here BK! Welcome aboard Arrr! .

By the way, that bass you built for Slade is absolutely incredible. I'm still staring at the pics trying to figure out how the hell you did that neck joint. For some reason my eyes just can't figure out the transition. Niiiiice! Mr. Green

Wow, I don't have anything as impressive as some of these things you guys have been posting, but there's still a couple nice ones:

#1: 2003 Limited Edition all-flamed maple Warwick Thumb Bolt-on 4 string. Technically, it isn't all flamed maple, but the neck, half the body, and fingerboard are, so I figure that's good enough. The headstock's signed by Warwick's founder... whose name escapes me, and it's the third of 239. Impressed the heck out of me.

#2 is a hodge-podge Warmoth five-banger with a monster 4-coil double humbucker. I can't even play this thing through my normal rig. It's loud, and has a nice three band EQ. I'm unloading this one sometime soon to pay for my new LB70-P. I am going to miss the nice green paint job though.

#3 is a '54 Fender Tele Bass reissue that they did last year with a matching '54 strat (both of which I HAD to have). It is frosted metallic blue with pink and yellow flowers. I'm sure some of you have seen this. It's got a nice antique gloss finish on the neck too. Also, interesting note, the bass' serial number is 666, so its name is the Antichrist.

#4 is, without doubt, my favorite bass. It's fairly standard fare, a Schecter Stilletto Custom 4 String. Still, it's mostly mahogany, has EMG's, and it's the bass I learned on. Heavy sentimental value. When I can afford it, this baby's going straight to the SimS Custom Shop to get decked out with LED's. Only the best for my basses, I tell you.

I'd love to provide some pics, especially of the Warwick and the Antichrist, but I'm afraid that my free time to take pictures, and dry sunny days just haven't been matching up lately.

I would have thought so too. Interestingly enough, though, there's a custom shop in the UK that has a method of installing them without removing the fingerboard from the rest of the neck. The guy practiced this method because he didn't want to mess with the intonation of the instrument. And yes, it looks incredible on a darkened stage. If you ever get a chance to see Steve Vai's "Live at the Astoria, London" DVD, you can see some of the SimS Custom LED work.

I'm not a bass player, so I only have one bass. That made sense when I typed it. Smile

Used black Ibanez SG-something. It's decent.

I'm giving this one a bump now that I have some pics of my newest baby.

Here she is, complete with new mirror pickguard and chrome knobs:



And my Pedulla Rapture is up for sale at Bass NW now. I'd keep it if it wasn't teal! Really great bass, but I don't think I will play it enough to justify keeping it.

Now THAT is a Jazz Bass! I never would have thought to put a mirrored pick guard on it, but that does make for one sweet looking bass. Nice to finally see pictures of it in all its purple glory.

mirror pickguards are awesome. the hard part is finding a guitar/bass where a mirror pickguard actually looks GOOD.

that jazz bass looks SWEET.

I've seen a mirrored guard on a black jazz, and loved how it looked with the chrome control plate. To complete the look (jeez, that's straight out of a clothing catalog) I wanted chrome dome knobs.

Did y'all know that nobody makes regular plain old chrome dome knobs that fit American Fender solid shaft pots? They only fit import split shaft types unless you drill the holes out quite a bit. WD Music Products, where I ordered these, offers to drill them for you if you ask. So I did, and of course they neglected to do it. I got them to send more out that were drilled, but they still didn't fit so I resorted to asking my husband to do it for me.

Boy, the trouble I go through! Mr. Green I love this bass. Guitar

I'm more partial to the classic jazz bass knobs. Of course my Mexi Jazz bass has freakin strat knobs on it, which in the ... almost 12 years that i've owned it have never been replaced, even though i mean to. Tonite i'm probably gonna shield the control cavity, clean the pots, and POSSIBLY remove the knobs so i can size them. i'm not sure what kind of pots are on these things.

I just can't believe though that companies can't just use ONE shaft size.

WoodyG3-I dig the Foundation fretless.

My basses (my son broke my camera so shut up!):

Peavey Foundation (1984): ash body, maple fretboard, neck p/u replaced w/a T40 hb, SD 1/4lb pbass p/u in the the middle. I purchased this one new from American Music in Jax, FL. The salesman was Banner Thomas of Molly Hatchett fame. $285

Peavey Foundation (late 1980's): black painted body, rosewood fretboard. I defretted it ala Jaco. Numerous coats of epoxy on the fingerboard. Sock electronics. $110 eBay

Peavey Foundation (1990's): red painted body, rosewood fretboard. DiMarzio Billy Sheehan model one p/u in the neck position. $125 eBay

Peavey Forum (?): black body, rosewood fretboard, ugly blue painted pickguard. $145 eBay

Guild JSB2 shortscale: butchered beyond belief $60 @ flea market. no hope of restoring it to anywhere close to original, but I can make a mean player out of it!.

Ibanez something or other. Humbucker w/coil tap? Bought it for $50 from a guy at a jam nite. Headstock has been modified...it looks like Gumby (dammit)

WishBass Flow fretless: walnut (?) body; neckthru locust, maple, mahogany with a purpleheart fingerboard. single EMG Select p/u, volume pot with no tone pot. $200 eBay. Say what you want to about Wish, but this bass is cool!

Yep, Foundations are nice basses that can be had for a song. Sounds like you have a nice collection of them! Never heard of the Billy Sheehan model before.

Besides my LB76 from 1993 I own:
- Fender P Bass 1974,
- BC Rich (4 strings) fretless, neck through. It's a beauty with an awsome sound, TONS of electronics, passive/active 1979.
Another weapon I want to get is a WARR 16 string Bass.

I play guitar and TRY to play bass on my home recordings.
I have a 1965 Hagstrom (thinnest neck in the world)! I think it is a HIIB/F-400 ...not 100% sure. I've had it since 1985 I think. Real easy player, love that neck!
