    Once I sell the 5 string sibling of the jazz bass below (consecutive serial numbers even!) I will be down to 2 basses after peaking around 9 over the last few years.

    I’m sure someday I’ll end up with more again, but for now I’m very happy with these two.

    I have 11 strings of bass right now. An Ibanez SG Gio 6 string and the basic bitch cheapest Ellefson Jackson 5 string. Would love to add a 5 or 6 string graphite neck bass in my price range like a Peavy GV.

  13. Ok so I order #18 but the order was cancelled because the bass was damaged in shipping. So I was offered a deal that I could not pass up. #18 arrived today. Electronics were not working and 3 machine keys were broken. I cracked it open and found so easily fixable wiring problems and she roared to life. I was able to tune it using a ignition wrench :) set up was good I played it and it sounds great so Xmas will bring new machine heads and a some strap locks still needs to be cleaned up but here she is FCA827D7-2B42-433E-855A-AD5F8E0EA768.jpeg

    Look great!

    Aren't the D and G strings wound the wrong way?

    You should have asked for an extra discount :)
