    Nice head!

    I didn't think a passive bass could sound so great. What a growl! What a bass!

    The only thing that I'd want to change right now is the pickguard. Does anybody know where I could get a flat black one?

    i dont know how handy you are- but i ook the guard off a k fretless i had and made a truss cover from blak mica- itlooked great- if you find a piece of rosewood colored mics- you can make a truss cover and ditch the guard.
     
  7. www.pickguards.com you can have one made special for you!

    That's lurvly, Squiggy.

    I tell you, people who spend $500-$600 on a 5 string and do not look into a Kingston are doing themselves a tremendous disservice.

    I have no need for another 5 string, but every time someone gets one, I am sorely tempted to order one for myself. Great basses, and best 5 string value on the market.

    i just emailed pickguards.com about getting a few Kingston guards made in black- i think that will really help the look of the fretlesses and black K's-- lets see how much they want..
     
  10. I need a new pickguard for my squier do some companys do novelty ones for squiers (im after bugs bunny, tweety pie or the anthill mob)
     
  11. I'm not nearly that handy. :) I'll be waiting to see what they have to say about the black pickguards. If you get some, I will buy one from you!
     
  12. Higgy congratulations mm mm mm that's a finger-lickin' bass dude!

    Enjoy and take good care!
