    Hey, different strokes. 3 would be excessive for me, 3 dozen might be just right for someone else.

    According to the poll results, most people fall into the "5 to 9" category, so you're well within the curve.

    As a decades-long Zemaitis fan boy (but never to be an owner) can I please, please beg you for a pic of this?

    Is that a shorty like a Gibby SG? Looks like a similar 3 point bridge. Never knew they ever made a bass. Very Nice.

    Mr. Zemaitis made a few basses. I saw a pic of a gorgeous fretless ABG he built. I really love his work, just aesthetically if nothing else, though I'm sure the quality is high, and consistently so.

    Sold three basses this week, dropping me below the 10 bass threshold for the first time in years. Shooting to get down to 4-5 and capping it; one in, one out.

    Picked this up at the UPS hub 5 minutes from work on Friday. First opportunity I had to check it out and plug it in.

    Very light. Website says it's chambered, but it is hollow from the bottom of the 'F' holes to the top of the body. It is routed for the controls. Has a nice tone to it and not too muddy sounding considering it only has a mud bucker pup. I didn't check it out for neck dive yet. Double black pinstripe 'Binding' is paint under the gloss finish. Finish on body is beautiful and consistent through-out. Seems to have great sustain.
    Not too crazy about the gig bag but they don't have a HSC for this and don't plan on making one. More later.

    I should have this on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

    Fender Bullet Bass

    It's been refinished and I bought it not knowing much about the Bullet Bass. The knobs are wrong, but I like them better than the originals, looks wise. Bought it on a whim really. $239 from MGR
    Based on the amount of frets (20) this looks to be a 34" scale Bullet Bass.

    I'm down to 4 from over 20! Ben Lindsey Jaco Reproduction, Ben Lindsey 50's P bass, Ben Lindsey 60's P bass and an '81 Rickenbacker. Of all the basses I've sold over the last 7 years, I'd only really like to have one back.
