    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. Have had a 65 P neck on it at one time

    1969 Fender Telecaster bass, blonde.This body was attached to a 65 P neck when purchased in 1976 for $150. Restored by JohnK10, I put a fresh neck on it and wow... I added an SD Sting stack pup and a push-pull volume.

    Remember that 65 P neck? Sent it to John Kallas for a refret, he’s going to attach a new body to it squirt it with LPB nitro and send me back a new old school P bass.

    2013 Squier Jaguar VM 5-string, black. Craigslist score $120. Still had plasticoat on guard. Loved the neck and PJ configuration. Ditched the wonky bass boost circuit and dropped in a Sadowsky 4-knob preamp. Replaced the P pickup with a Fender Am STD. Ultralight tuners and upgraded bridge. Painted headstock.

    1997 Ibanez TR-500-FL “Expressionist” lined fretless. Very near nice jazz-style neck, active electronics. An unknown classic bass.

    Mid-century German laminate double bass. It's a nice bass, have only played out with it a few times. Want to spend more time with it...
