    Thats the one! I always get the two mixed up. The 5P is the bass that the bassist (his name eludes me) plays in jamiroquai right?

    Anywhos im going to do the rounds again today. Ill try and snap up a few more pics. Sorry to all the TB aces, but i only have acess to production basses :D

    I hate photos like that !! :mad:

    All those bases look like they are in prison, trapped in those restrictive, neat rows... they should be set free, to make music!! ;)
