    So BassPlayer magazine had a 400th issue competition, with lots of prizes, which was mostly a answer one question, get entered into a prize draw type thing. And I won, and not only did I win, but also I didn't have my usual luck of winning a pack of plectrums, I actually won a bass! Woot. For two weeks I was hoping I'd won the Fender 60th Anniversary Jazz bass, going to sleep at night with fingers crossed, ooozing positive thoughts about Fender..but no, I'd won an Orange O Bass. Oh.. O.. Hey hey stop sniggering at the back. It's a decent bass.. ish.. It sounds awesome and the finish is surprisingly good. But.. It has a super wide neck, way wider than my PBass. And the pickups, well you'da thought they could have lined them up better. Sounds like I'm complaining doesn't it.. For something that's free. Man - I'm a bad person ;-) It's not a keeper..

  2. the pickup/string alignment can be fixed by moving your camera slightly to the left.

    I admire all the natural light in your home!

  3. Well some people have all the luck! They are very retro looking, sort of Hofner Club meets Precision.

    i'm sure the pickups are fine. they don't need to look a particular way to their job! i'd play it just as it is --- or i'd rip the frets out and really rock it! congrats on your free ax! :thumbsup:

    This Orange sound great with aggressive pick style playing.

    Factory pickups placement are off align. Not crook bridge assembly.
