    No knobs. The blue one also seems to have a blue nut as well.

    They're extra-super-duper sparkly?

    Besides the lack of knobs, they have a dude pointing at them.

    That he has 5 moduli (plural?) while most of our back ups are squires....
     
  9. There is either a single switch or output jack on the front of first one.

    BTW the dude has a Motorola V180 in his pocket leading me to believe it is an old photo. Most likely bring pre-2006, unless he take unusually good care of a "free" phone.

    One thing i noted is the different configuration of the string trees in the headstock, some basses have 2 trees, some have 1

    Nothing weird. I could've guessed Flea wasn't smart enough to figure out a volume knob. ;)
