    Thanks.

    Didn't get it yet.

    I'll post remarks when I get it.
     
  4. are the EMG's original?

    I remember the Trace T-bass (built by Status) first had 2 J p/ups, with a third dummy coil J hidden under the pickguard.

    The 4 stringers have JJ PUs standard. The 5s have Js or soapbars.

    I don't think I've ever come across one.

    That's a pretty cool bass, looks like it should have some monster tone.

    Great looking bass. I was tempted by it when I ran across it on ebay. The EMG's are a mod. I'm sure you are going to get serious tone from it.

    Congratulations on the acquisition and happy birthday.

    When you get it I'd love to see some pics of the headstock with the angled tuner arrangement.

    I'll shoot it from other angles when I get it.

    Hm, I'm prepared to accept it being a mod, especially since it's quality stuff.

    A mod is in no way a negative thing. You have a great bass, let us know what you think of its sound when you get it.
