    Then we haven't begun to see the surface scratched of the collection. PJ has a ton of others: Musicmans, Fodera, and Wals too.

    Missing some 5ers but someone with a collection like that must have at least a couple to noodle on from time to time. Got to say my favorite of the bunch was the 75 fender j. Stunning collection.

    As a collector, PJ has exquisite taste. The contrasting grain pattern on that 1975 Jazz Bass is, frankly, astonishing.

    Thanks for those pics. I always enjoy seeing a nice collection of basses, and especially those with nice, natural finishes. :)

    Nice basses.
    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but on the Alembics SII models shown on the photos, where does the front shoulder strap attach to? There on no horns on the body so it appears that the guitar would have excessive neck dive.
    Just curious.

    Nice collection!

    Please tell me more about the graphite Status Stealth - I'm thinking about buying one. How does the neck feel - thick or thin? Wide or narrow?
    What do the pickups sound like - fat/warm, or bright & hi-fi?
    How does it balance when sitting or standing?
    Does it take double-ball strings, or can you use regular strings?
    Thanks!
