    This is JO138, which started life out as a candy apple red Joe Osborn signature bass from Lakland, one of the first 100 to have the "Joe Osborn" signature on it. The original owner chewed up the finish pretty bad, so I had Pat Wilkins refinish the body in a matte sonic blue, and then I blacked out all of the hardware. While I was at it, I shielded the cavities with copper foil too. The pickguard was done by Mike Quick, and it's held to the body with micro-suction tape, though the original screw holes are still accessible under the guard. The p'up cover is held onto the guard with double-sided tape.

    If you visit the reverbnation site in my signature, any of the tracks you hear are recorded with this bass.
