    I'm up to two now. Bought a parts/older p-bass copy, just because who doesn't need a P - right?

    Well, I picked this up On Wednesday as it was delivered a day early, but I couldn't sign for it because I work during the day in an engineering office. So, the UPS hub is 5 minutes from where I work so I picked it up at lunch. Opened it up at the UPS facility. Absolutely beautiful condition. Just a slightly mark on the binding along the side of the neck at the 12th fret marker.

    Got her home. Had to go to VFW meeting and then to my Bass lesson.

    Got home and took it out of the case to test it out. Something was flopping around inside. It was the insides of on of the pickups. I then noticed how high the strings were. The bridge was set really high on the E string side, so I proceeded to lower the bridge, only to see that the bridge pickup cover was so high that when I lowered the strings on the E string side they hit the top of the cover.

    So, I have a beautiful unplayable bass. Not all that big a deal because I planned on replacing the pickups since the rumor is on these older Stylist Basses is that they have 6 pole guitar pups rather than bass pups. However, it would have been nice to actually be able to plug it in and play it just to test her out.

    When I first confronted the seller I asked in an innocent way when was the last time he played the bass and the response was 'not in a long while, and when I did it was rarely'. Then when I told him about the condition of the bass as shown above he stated the he 'played around with it before he shipped it'.


    Anyway, it is in great condition and the HSC only has a nick here or there.

    Pix later.

    I own two: an Ibanez SRF705 and an NS Design NXT5a.

    If I had more time on my hands, I would also get a Stingray. I even know what I would want to do with it. But let's face it, the other two basses keep me super busy and it's a shame to buy an instrument that will end up gathering dust.

    I own two basses:

    -Yamaha BB434
    -Epiphone EB0

    I will probably let go the EB0, im not into short scale. And my BB434 is all I need.
