    Howdy folks,

    Been lurking awhile on TB, and finally decided to sign up. Been playing guitar on and off for over 25 years and took up the bass about a year ago. Needless to say, I have been hooked ever since. This has been quite an enjoyable experience! I made it my focus to learn to be a bassist and not just a guitarist fumbling around on a bass.

    My current lineup includes:

    1990s Second Series Aria Pro II SB-1000
    2005 Les Paul DC
    MIM P-Bass (I replaced wiring, pots, PUPs and bridge. Fun DIY project)
    2014 Rickenbacker 4003
    Music Man Stingray

    5 Basses, 3 electric guitars, 1 acoustic guitar and a ukulele. I have always been one for the "the more the merrier" approach to instruments, as long as I can find the right deals.

    On the Ric, I removed the pickup cover and added a bezel to cover the gaps.

    That, oh man, what a wonderful instrument! It is sitting in a shop currently for a truss adjustment (my tech skills are limited to guitar electronics and hardware--I could technically do a setup, but I have a guy that does it for an excellent price.

    Thanks for the welcome, and I have attached some photos!
