    I don't know if I've ever done a "family photo". Since I wanted to prove the existence of my new bass with pics I decided to take one. Didn't turn out so good, but here it is nonetheless:

    I guess it would be proper to list the basses....

    Peavey USA Palaedium 4 string
    Brice V2 6 string fretless
    Franken bass P/J fretless (Old "Aspen" 70s P copy body with Rondo/Team neck, Fender and Reverend Pickups, and brass hardware)
    Fender USA Standard Jazz Bass V
    Peavey USA Millenium Standard
    Tacoma Thunderchief (Fishman preamp)
    Peavey Axcelerator 6

    Very little functional redundancy. No good slapper though (I'm poor at the technique and like a 4 string J bass for it).

    I had a Peavey USA Millenium Standard (same color).... it was a great slapper!
     
  8. Which pickup is the Reverend, and how do you like it? I just picked up a Franken-Fender with a Reverend P pickup.. huge tone!
    Nice family you have.. lots of different options. Cool!

    You know what, I think you're right! :) I prefer the sound of a J/J bass for slapping, but the P/J is no slouch, and the way the bass is built definitely is slap friendly.
    The Fender is my number one "go to" bass. If I'm ever helping someone record or sitting in with unknown situations, that's the one that goes.

    The P is the Reverend Rumblsfish, the J is from a '95 MIM Jazz bass. Great tone from that bass! The J pickup rout is so bad Wishnevsky would cringe if he saw it. And it's too close to the bridge, to boot. But it still sounds terriffic. The MIM Jazz pickups are highly underappreciated. I usually play that bass and the Milly with the P soloed. I love the sound of a maple neck fretless P bass with the nylon filament strings.
    Here's a better look:

    Good so far. I've only had it a week and haven't been able to practice with the whole band yet so the jury's still out.
