    Here is my lefty '13 Gibson 'Bird. Still bone stock - including the strings - for now. Got it just before Christmas, and let it sit with the case open for a month or so (SOP around here) to acclimate; then off to Cowtown Guitars for a slight fret end dressing. Have been playing it fairly regularly since, trying to get used to it. 'Way different from my 4001 Rick! Am impressed with the tone; nice mellow growl, and not at all muddy like I thought it might be. So far, I see no need to mess with it at all (other than strings, of course). May I please have a number? Oh, and please note the mandatory rolled-up towel under the neck. Am still not real impressed with the insides of the case; but I have plans..:)

    The band is on a short hiatus while we audition a new guitarist to replace our long time one.......I don't like auditioning them at all!

    So, something from this past Halloween.

    Love it. Never get tired of seeing you with that single p/u Lull, Mark.

    It's always awesome when the lights first feature the bass, not the man behind it, haha:

    In the near future, i'll be building my own hardshell somewhat form fitting case for my bird. It'll be a fun little project amongst my others and at least i'll be able to carry the bird in something sturdier rather than my acoustic guitar gigbag with the headstock sticking out wrapped in a blanket. Loll rant, but it'll be cool, off to the drawing board :D

    Hi team, here I am working in my problem with the bridge. :D

    I have this new bridge, I´m testing it and I´m worried about the strings position. what do you think? to be honest, I wont use the bottom place of the bass (I´m kinda rocker LOL)

    I need to create something to hold the bridge in the bass, I´m thinking in some piece of metal (in different colors white/black(white as we have it in the logo) with this model:

    I´m opened to your points of views (for this reason I´m posting this :D )

    MANY THANKS!!!!

    Don't think you'd have much an issue with the spacing. Don't go to insane loll. As for the bridge, idk, i'd take out the inserts for the 3 point out of the body, fill the holes up and place the bridge you have now onto the body.

    Hi Andii, many thanks!!

    I don´t wanna do more holes in the body, for that reason I´m thinking in the way to fix the bridge!

    But is it really worth the trouble? What was wrong with the original 3 point bridge in the first place?

    yup, the bridge is not complete (the saddles were stolen by a luthier, I bough the bass knowing this situation and veeery cheap) and for that reason I just replaced it.
