    I had the walnut stained one way back in the early 80's. Loaded it with EMG's and it sounded totally awsome - wish I still had it.

    That Walnut stain 400 sustains for days and you can feel it resonate through the entire body/neck. I'm also in the Cincinnati/N KY area if you wish to check it out.

    The red BB300 is presently a tenor bass with EMG's for that "Victor" vibe.

    Here's a couple more pics of the BB800 T shirt and Blue Jean bass. Just used it on an outdoor festival Sunday. Gave J bass and P bass flavors as needed.

    Both BB1000 and BB400 are 1 5/8. Very P bass like.

    Is the profile chunky or flat?

    I believe it would be under the category of chunky to beefy like a 70's P bass. Not flat like a lot of modern basses. Except for the red BB300. It has the best neck profile of the 4. I tend to think someone worked on the shaping of it although there are no signs of modifications. It looks like it just came from the factory. It has some flatness to the back of the neck and doesn't feel as chunky in your left hand. That's why I presently have it strung as a tenor bass for soloing. Tuned C-G-D-A Red BB300 is second pic below. The 1st pic is BB1000.
