    My thumb finally has the EMG JV's and BTC preamp! I also added some gold hardware, and it looks classy. Now, to glue on the brass nut, string it, set it up, and it's done! Yes!

    Edit: Here are the new pics.

  2. I think you put the bridge one in crooked.

    And it's looks awfully cloudy. :smug:

    Once I put the nut and strings on, soundclips will come. Do you want to hear me hit an allen wrench against a pole peice now :p?

    sure : P

    thats one thing i can never deal with, exposed pole peices, i play really hard over the pups, and the snap on those annoys the crap outa me...

    yet i keep buying replacment pups with pole peices...when will i learn ( lindy fralin P pup, SD antiquitysII, USA fender Jazz vintage)

    if ya got any old sound clips to compare them to, that would be awsome also.

    Well, my sound card is a dorito. So you wouldn't hear any difference. :p I'm probably going down to best buy in a few days to get a digital camera and new soundcard
     

  12. I was merely joking.

    Note the smiley at the end of the post.
     

  13. I think your camera is drunk.

    i think that it's a sharp looking combination, the exposed pole pieces and all - hopefully it sounds as good as it looks. please let us know. what year is your thumb bass, btw?

    It's an 02. It sounded amazing at first, but with the new pickups, I just don't want to let it go.
