    Ok, you win! Majorly sweet collection you've got there, Fender!
    I don't currently have anything that matches, but I'm always on the look-out for a fretless Cirrus 6 to match my fretted. I wouldn't mind a fretless mate to my Jazz or G&L, either, though I'd want the Jazz FL to be a 5 string, so I don't know if that's really a match.

    I don't have the cool pics like you guys, but I love the vintage-y sunburst/tortoise shell look.

    I've got a newer P and an old J both with that color scheme. I'm currently trying to figure out what to sell to get a Reggie Hamilton V with the same look.

    It's sort of geeky, but totally cool.

  11. Got this one a couple years ago....
    MYGL.

    .....and this one is on it's way as of yesterday...
    GnLWide2-1.
    GnLCU-1.

    The first has a #7 neck, the second has a #6, so think of them as having a P-neck and a J-neck. I'll post better pictures when my new gal gets here.

    My two Modulus basses are both Quantums. One's a 5 string unlined fretless and the other is a 6 string fretted. Same body shape, same pickups and preamps but different woods and colors.

    Very soon...a Spector ReBop DLX FM black cherryburst fretted, and a Spector ReBop 5 LX FM lined fretless blueburst on order. It'll be a few months, as Spector typically doesn't do blueburst ReBops.

    I've also got a Yamaha RBX-775 freted flat silver and a custom RBX-775 fretless flat blue that are soon to be on the selling block. What can I say, I've got a thing for "sister" basses. ;)

    In some countries you could get assasinated for having absses that beautiful. Just curious, what are the specs on the two fenders?

    No and I don't want to. I want 3 more basses, all Dingwall. An SJ5 (3-tone, morado board), a Z1 (Indigoburst, maple board), and a Prima Artist (Naturally, natural :)). They'll all sound different, and they should all look different too.


    A matching pair of J and P is awesome though.

    I have an SR4 in Honeyburst and an SR5 in Honeyburst...they have different color pick guards, but it's close enough!

    I also have a 2nd SR4, but it's in natural...so yes I have matching basses...in a few different ways.

    Got three that match, Ric 4003 Jetglo, Gibson TBird Studio 5 ebony, and Fender GL Jazz. All are black with white pickguards, and chrome hardware. Very pretty indeed. Will post a pic when I get home, if'n I don't forget during the "busy" workday.
