    Picked up a 65 J from the original owner. Thought I'd share pics with you guys, plays really nicely! 20200811_122502.jpg 20200811_122510.jpg 20200811_122328.jpg 20200811_122951.jpg 20200811_144803.jpg 20200811_144809.jpg 20200811_144823.jpg 20200811_144831.jpg 20200811_144901.jpg 20200811_145521.jpg 20200811_145801.jpg 20200811_145805.jpg 20200811_150105.jpg 20200811_150447.jpg 20200811_150455.jpg 20200811_150504.jpg 20200811_162254.jpg

    Such a lovely 'burst – they don't do 'em like that no more.

    I dunno, it looks like a piece of crap to me. I'll give you $100 for it just so you can get it out of your house. I'll even be generous and pay for shipping.

    Relic Schmelic, that's the real deal, there's no faking it. Sweet old Bird.

  13. Beautiful bass. Hard to find tort like that these days. I’d bet many of the anti-tort people have never even seen the the really good stuff and only have experience with the modern stuff.
    You might need new foam under the pups if you cannot raise them high enough.
    Those tuners have a ratio that’s a little on the coarse side by modern standards so tuning may require a little more patience.

    Beautiful! :cool:

    Just like the one I used in my first studio sessions. Sounded great on tape.
