    Yeah, some nice basses there. What are your favourites?

    What one would you keep if you had to sell the rest?

    Oh wow.

    The '65 P, and '75 Jazz just kill me!!!

    Beautiful collection!!

    There are really few Lorenzos... Mr Lorenzo is a Luthier from Buenos Aires. He doesn't make instruments any more beacause of his age. I can also say that he run out of the precious wood he used at the time (during the seventies).

    I had a Lorenzo when I was a teenager, and I shouldn't have sold it... It took me more than 20 years to find ther second one.

    I'm lucky enough to have found one Lorenzo....
    I would't get rir of it for nothing in the world...
    All the others can be found if you have the money....
  9. I don't have any 75....

    PB 1965 - JB 1968-69 - JB 1973 - JB 1978

    He said the Lorenzo is from 75 and even though he said it's like a precision, the pickups seem to suggest it's more like a jazz.
  12. As English is non my language... It's dificult to me to understand the real meaning of your sentence !
    Would you explain ?

  13. Oh yes.... what a silly man I am !!!

    In Fact... The Lorenzo has a "Like Precision body" with a neck like a Jazz Bass... Two pick-ups Jazz-Bass style...
    The original bridge pick-up was missing... So I replaced it by a Fender Jazz 1975 Bass Pick-up I've founf on Ebay.
    I had the golden pick-up rings made in brass by an artisan.
    The finish is a real gold bath ....

    Sorry again folks !!!
  14. Very nice bass family !!!:)

    I was simply saying either you or Mark made a mistake since you said you don't have a '75 or rather "circa '75"

    That's all. :)

    Duuuuuude. Nice. You play all those?
  18. Sorry... I was thinking about Fender basses... In fact "The Lorenzo" has been made in beetween 1974-1976...
    I've asked Mister Lorenzo himself but he's not able to say when he made it... I'm happy you noticed that bass.. It's my favorite !!!! I had one when I was young...

  19. Yesssss

    But you... Don't point them... Dont look at them... Not even think about them !!!!!!!!!:bag:
  20. I don't understand why Peavey T-40 basses are so underestimated in the US !!!

    They are unbreakable... Powerful sound !!!
