    Congrats on both counts. Do you have the previous 18 basses, or do you turn them over?

    Congratulations on your gorgeous new bass! That is a thing of beauty. Congratulations as well on a great wife who is definitely in your corner, and especially on 19 years of sobriety.

    Congrats! I bought the same bass 2 weeks ago! It’s a nice match for my 59 Custom Shop.

    Congrats, great colour combination. I seem to remeber reading they have a wider than usual nut width. (44mm?). How do you get on with that?

    Also, congrats on giving up the juice. Compared to learning the melodic minor scale, I thought quiting alcohol was pretty easy. :)

    I just picked up an American Original Jazzmaster with some cash from selling a bunch of gear. I dig the new Fender line, real quality stuff. The paint is beautiful!

    I believe the P bass had a 1.73 or 1.75” nut from 57-68. They changed to the 1.625 (modern P nut) after that. Don’t quote me. I think this is correct.

    That being said, I have 5 P basses. 3 being the vintage width and I much prefer them over the modern width.
