    It' a beauty!

    I'e been meaning to email Tom and ask if he could add a p to mine. Maybe a single coil. Then it would be the true do all

    My workhorse is this. It's a bass I had built in 2016, after a two-year break, and it's been a lucky one.

    Decendant from the Clovis culture. "Emitting that wonderful bass effect since 1970".
    One of my favorites to play and probably the most $$ generating bass I've ever owned. 22d-Country-Paul.jpg
  5. If it was a few years ago, I would have said my '74 Rick. FB_IMG_1508801954085.jpg FB_IMG_1508801962419.jpg Any situation, be it a charity gig in the High School, a high-class wedding or just a simple pub/bar gig she got the pick of the lot.
    Recently I must admit I have retired her from active service and enjoy her as a "treat" bass from time to time (mostly house use) and have become absolutely smitten with my modified Squier P.

    "Diamond in the rough" '15 affinity P
    Gold wilkinson hardware
    Red tort guard
    Black matching headstock
    Dimarzio Will Power pickup.
    Loads of other mods I tend to forget.
    She's been my go-to rehearsal, practice and "noodle" bass for the past few months, and I'm not ashamed to say it's my favourite P I've ever owned/tried. I love it.

    My 92 P with a Jazz Neck. Light, comfy and punchy...

    Reverend Mercalli, a bona fide workhorse and probably the best thing to come out of Korea since soju.

  9. I have a few, based on the style of music I'm playing. Of course my sig pic jazz is my uber favorite recording bass. I didn't add it because it's already posted. These are my main players, the ones I'll never sell or be able to replace. They are tone Gods.

    Here it's my ESP C305 neck through. Not made any longer, but a great tone and playability in a 35" package.

    My Trusty Spector fiver did a lot of heavy lifting touring for me.

    Here it's hanging out in the studio during a recording session.

    Playing rock I never hesitate to grab my old p bass. It's raw, unrefined, and all scarred up. Kinda like me.

    My 1996 black label P. In its hot rodded state, it's my favorite sounding and playing precision of all time.

    My number 1 bass is my 6 I built almost 20 years ago. Once it was finished and I actually got to play it, I sold my Alembic that I had. The only other bass I'll play when needed is my fretless 5 that I also built.

    As of late, my MIJ Jag has gotten the lion's share of gigs from both bands. February has been busy for the Jagger.
