    It has a J Retro system that has 2 switches on it that I've never noticed before. So far, papa likes! I'll be adding one of those brushed gold looking pickguards on it. It should be sweet against that blue.

    Did you get operating instructions for the preamp with the bass? If not let me know and I'll email them to you ok?

    Nice....just so you know...there are individual gain trim pots on the preamp board in case you need to balance the outputs ok?

    Found it...not bad. The thing is trying to find a gold guard to fit your JO-5 is going to be next to impossible or very expensive if possible.

    Roger at Jeannie's Pickguards has a new "Black Abalone" guard material that might look good.

    I say skip the gold pickgaurd also, especially cause you have a rosewood fretboard on the bass. The gold doesnt look that bad with maple, but with rosewood I think i would be really weird. Otherwise nice bass.
