    I’ve thought about it, but not sure how many are willing to pay that much. It’s great if you can score one on eBay at a good price, but they are expensive to build.

    Follow-up:

    I've had a chance to play my new to me green TBX 5 at a few gigs. It's a beast! It sounds amazing and plays really easily. It now has all updated EMG pickups (40DC-X) pickups and electronics (BQC) and while it was reasonably quiet before, it's now dead silent and has even more dynamics. Apparently it sounds really, really good out front. Thanks for the killer bass, Steven!

    That’s the same electronics I’ve got in my Q5 (bolt on, not a TBX), and yep, they're dead quiet, even in my noisy basement.

    I also have a 40CS-X at the ready if I want to smooth out the sound.

    I like EMG's tone (and quietness) and as a terrible solderer, I appreciate the quick connects :D

    TBH, I love the Bartolini tone, as well. Trying to choose induces option anxiety. A friend of mine was telling me he had a Modulus Q6 that he wired with Bartolini pickups and EMG electronics. He loved that combination.

    So, as promised, here's the update. The first body attempted had a natural wood flaw, so we had to make another. There will be two SST's available. One, a Custom, with a gnarly maple top, Hawaiian Saligna underlay, over alder. The saligna is extremely hard, and had a nut brown color, with a hint of red. I've included a closeup of the arm bevel to highlight it. I think it will look real cool with a stark clear coat, but will also look nice in a trans color. The SST-X body is alder, and will be slightly discounted for the wood flaw you might never notice. sst - 1.jpeg sst - 2.jpeg sst - 3.jpeg

    Was in Nashville this last weekend, saw a few cats playing Q5’s. Lots of good bands/musicians in that town.

    What’s the top on the brown one? Looks just like my old Q5. Man, I miss that bass.

    I was hoping some NAMM people might’ve stopped by to check out my stuff!
