    Current Setup:
    1973 Fender P - natural ash (butterscotch), black PG, maple, TI's - all'73
    1974 Fender P - black, black, maple - all original but for the new CTS pots. Back in the rotation.
    1971 Firemist restorarion by John Kallas
    1962 Fender P - RW fingerboard, Oly (yellowing) white, no pickguard but a control plate like Wetton's after it was white. TI's.
    1971 Fender P - stripped alder with rosewood neck, pickguardian tort, '81 Fullerton '57 pups, old schaller drop-D. Rotates with '74 Mocha as number 1 gig bass.
    1972 3TSB built/restored by John Kallas. Based on a 1970 body and '72 neck, '76 pups. Rings like a piano.
    1976 Fender P - natural, black, maple, TI's - was all original (now with Aguilar P60's, new pots) - my "usual No. 2" with the '74 mocha as No. 1.
    1974 Fender P - walnut/mocha, black, rosewood from all '74 parts (except the '77 pups!), TI's and an old Schaller drop-D makes this my primary gig bass now.
    1972 Fender P - black, black, rosewood - bought on a whim, favorite sounding/playing bass. Wears TI flats. Semi-retired now.
    1978 Fender P - trans red - first bass with a pro-setup. Nice bass but a tad heavier than I like. Wears TI flats. Lives under the bed.
    '59 Custom Shop P in Burgundy Mist - wow! Not getting much time as I am migrating towards the narrow '70's necks.
    1964 Fender P, refin in fiesta. Wears TI flats.
    '01 American Vintage '57 P - Dakota Red! - OK, now this is "The One"!
    '97 AV '57 - black - Nice bass with tons of sustain.
    '96 AV '62 - burst (anniversary sticker), amazing neck.
    Sting-edition P bass (seldom off the wall anymore)
    '07(ish) Fender Jazz - Audere, Nordstrand NJ4SE's, Gotoh 201, GHS M/L Boomers

    2006 '62 AV RI Fender P in Oly white. Wanted to love this bass but just could not seem to bond with it.
    Pino - egads this thing was fabulous but I got tired of answering the "what year is that bass" so it got traded for a '59 CS white-over ash.

    Gas free....unless I see another '70's lightweight....
