    I'm back to using an Am. Std. Olympic White Precision, in place of the Gibson EB 2014.

    Did it come with that pick guard or is that a replacement?

    I changed it out. It came with the standard Tort PG.

    I really like it with the TC E RH450 head / BC212 cab.

    Mr N, VERY nice. I personally would have liked the tort but that new guard looks classy.

    wow i never would have guessed that white/pearl/maple was my cup of tea but that thing is GORGEOUS. the blue silk wraps are just the icing on the cake, that's a stunning bass.

    Love it! Very nice example of the breed.
     
  14. I'm with Neren on this one...normally I prefer contrasting colours but that thing is hot.

    What flats did you string it with? (Related, I really REALLY miss having rounds with silk ends, it adds class to the look.)

    Congrats! I was gassing for one of these, but just bought an Aerodyne, so couldn't justify it with the boss. The white with maple fb is perfect. Your choice in pickguard is spot on. Enjoy!
     
  16. Very nice, love the white on white body and the maple neck.

    The strings are D'Addario ETB92 Nylon Tapewounds, and they are round wounds. They do however sound like flats. The best of both worlds.

    Yes, my "Electric Lady" is a 2013. I really do like the CS60's. I think they sound good on both Precisions, and Jazzes.

    I've got an older one - 2008 with the standard tort guard. I'm diggin the white. I wonder if the white guard will still look good as the bass yellows with age?

  20. Cheers for the reply mate. We can debate this to death, but flats are flats, rounds are rounds, and tapewounds are tapewounds. They're not really the best of any world except tapewound world. :)
