    Fresh from ebay. I wasn't really looking, and put in a bid that I thought would be outbid at the last minute. It matches a 360/12 I have as well.
    I'll probably gig this one (anyone put a Hipshot D tuner on these? Is there much drilling required?)
    I wonder what it would cost to get the house painted in metallic dark blue?

    Congratulations on your new bass, it is a beauty! I played one similar to it at a shop last summer, and still wish I had bought it. Enjoy!

    I like it in the daylight, I'd probably go for the Azure glo ones I see occasionally (but the price was right on this one).

    Our whole house had the crank out windows (a model, and the builder had some 'unique' ideas). Good for not getting rain in your house, bad for ventilation. We replaced a while back with sliding ones, this one (over the kitchen sink), stayed (but got the prairie insert thingies - my wife picked out).

    Thanks for sharing the 360/12. The pair is killer. And there is no jangle like a Rickenbacker jangle.
