    Southern NJ
    Current Setup:
    - StingRay 5 HH (JOEY SQUID 6/2007)
    - G&L L-2500 (StuartV 3/2016)
    - USA Precision V (mrpackerguy, 9/2008)
    - Mesa D-800 Head (The Diaper Geni, 10/2016)
    - G-K MB800 (NickFromNY 12/2016)
    - Genzler Magellan 350 (The Bass Place)
    - G-K MB150S combo - Used from GC (on the fence about selling this, but if it could offset the cost of something else I REALLY want to buy ...)
    - 2 x Barefaced Big Baby II (azwipe, 12/2016; rick carter 9/2017)
    - Barefaced One10 (gl1234, 1/2017)
    - Roland Micro Cube Bass (Tommygunn 2/2011)
    - WAY more pedals than I need

    - Tobias Toby Pro 4 string (pawn shop) - Replaced stock preamp with a 4-band Audere, sounds amazing!
    - SX SJB-62 5-string Sunburst - Became a project bass in 11/2012. Replaced literally EVERYTHING except the unloaded body and the neck plate. Sounds great and was a fun project, but I'm moving away from Jazz basses and GAS has me looking something else that better fits my situation.
    - G-K 1001RB-II (xcental34x 3/06)
    - G-K MB500 head (Gecko 5 4/2011)
    - G-K MB200 - (Joe Smithberger, 9/2016)
    - Several effects pedals, especially overdrives and octaves

    I don't mind that you despise my sunburst Precision because it has a tort pickguard and flats on it. But I don't understand how that entitles you to be an ass about it. :eyebrow:
