    DFAFD2FC-5D94-44C7-B1AB-FDA957E5CBFC.jpeg Just delivered. This thing looks great. So far, I have found no flaws whatsoever. Digging the color. Gonna let it acclimate for a bit and then get down to the nitty gritty.

    About a 1/8th turn of relief on the truss rod, a bit of a adjustment on the neck pickup to level things out, and this thing is good to go. Very pleased and just the tone I was looking for to round out my stable.

    Thank you everyone. It’s a beautiful color in person and the rosewood is pretty dark. I’ve been doing some tweaks to it here and there, and I’ve got this thing playing like butter. Much like a good Pbass, I can alter my right hand position and attack to get all kinds of tones. The only thing that I would change as of right now, is the plastic control knobs.

    I like it. Are those chrome parts on the bass or is it kinda vintage tinted?

    Looks pretty cozy. Is the neck maple?

    Looked it up online and it looks like the neck is colour matched, that is very nice :)

    Looks sweet! Probably a good thing I haven’t found one of these to go hands on with. I might like it and I’m weak…

    I love these! I have been on the fence on getting one for a while, I am glad you like it! I want the gold one.

    Nice! Love Inverness Green (have a t-bird in that color). Hang on to the knobs if you change them as they are reproductions of the originals and are otherwise unavailable (so far as I know).

    Careful, my friend!! I got an Epiphone and stopped playing all my other basses and NOW I have a new Gibson en route and my sense of humour has grown exponentially!!! That bass looks great, play and enjoy...a LOT!!

  18. I got a red one a few months ago. I like it but it's taken a back seat to the short scale basses I prefer to play. It is my favourite of the 34" basses I own. My blend control failed quickly (didn't like its feel anyways). After experimenting with series/parallel and VVT, I just wired the 2 pickups in parallel and plugged the hole where the blend was. Since I find the bridge PUP adds more treble than I care for, I might disconnect it one day.
    It's a beautiful bass. The paint finish gleams beautifully in the sunshine.

    Epiphone is crushing it lately. Love that pickups in my Thunderbird. Congrats!

    Nice bass. Really like the dark fretboard color. Is it laurel or rosewood?
