    3 way coil tap swich for the MM
    active/passive switch
    on/off switch
    and on/off for fretboard LEDs
     
  6. I see.

    what's the on/off switch for? to turn off the active circuit from draining the battery when you're not playing?
     
  7. Tight bass! Are you going to give us the stats on it or do we have to talk to dave himself? ;)

    Is that pink ivory for the fingerboard? Red Heart?

  11. Why did you sell that by the way? Sheesh, you shoulda kept that and stuck it on your wall!

    Nice piece of purple heart, very striking-maybe it's my monitor, but it looks bright red to me.:)

    Great lookin bass to me. The spalted maple just strikes me as being interestingly different [good thing]. waiting to see the review upon arrival.
