    Current Setup:
    1971 Fender P bass (fretless, TSB, rosewood, w/model J bridge p/u). Bought this brand new when I was in high school.
    1969 Fender Tele bass (blonde, w/SD stacker) This body was attached to the 65 P neck (below) when purchased in 1976 for $150. Recently restored by JohnK10, I put a fresh neck on it and wow...
    1965 Fender P neck on noname P body, Fralins, sonic blue See above. I love this wiIide neck, the body is just a neck holder.

    2014 SX Ursa 6 J bass, CAR, modified. My first bass with >4 strings. Starting to get the hang of it, well worth the $99
    1996 Ibanez TR500FL (fretless, black, rosewood) - nice active J-style bass bought new from GC, may sell this since I don't use it a lot.
