  5. Thanks! The photo doesn't really do the Walnut top justice. It has a lot of depth to it and it has different types of figure running in opposite directions. I wish it could have been a big solid block of Walnut but that's probably not desireable for weight, sound and cost considerations.

    I'll try to get some good close-up pics sometime.

  8. My cheap Warmoth/MIJ Jazz mutant with Duncans. Got it used for about $250--it plays and sounds great, and looks pretty sharp from 5 feet away, so I can't complain too much about the mediocre (re)finishing job the previous owner did.

    My Tokai Jazz before repairs. The previous owner changer the contols to Master Vol/ Master Tone/ Toggle switch. I had a friend put it back the way Leo intended.

  10. notduane, I've always wondered, what type of pick ups do you have in the double neck?

    OK, here y'go. Haven't posted these in a while. Pedulla ThunderBolt 5 with TBT electronics, AAA flame and, of course, gold hardware. Then you got your Lakland 55-94 Deluxe with the ebony 'board and, what else, gold hardware.

    Fishman...Acoustic Matrix Natural I (upper neck),
    Acoustic Matrix Natural II (lower neck). They're the
    flat, rectangular, under-saddle types...

    The original plan was to have one output jack, then one blend
    and one volume knob on the bridge. Rob contacted some
    fellers at Fishman and they thought it best to go with separate
    outputs. So there's two output jacks, two volume knobs on
    the bridge, and the ("high") trimpots are accessible via the
    back panels.

    Here is my Warwick "copy". I bought it in Korea thinking it was real, then when I got it home I found out from Dana B. Goods (the U.S. distributor for Warwick) that it is a counterfeit. It is still a well made, nice looking/playing bass that I got for a good price.

    Counterfeit basses and guitars are common in Korea, and I was aware of that, but usually it is very obvious, like the Fender "Jass" basses that go for $100.
