    I don't know which thread has a scarier title: "Male Genital Mutilation," or "need a John Turner FIX!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Both conjure up some pretty frightening images.....

    Oh, yeah--GET THEM PICS UP, BOY-O!

    here's another attachment, this time of the jacks. the 13-pin RMC synth jack is behind the 1/4" jack. you can also see how thick it is, and some of the carving of the top.

    i'll put up some better pics as soon as i have some.

    Hey John, that's the first one that you've ever bought that wasn't a natural wood finish.

    It just seems kind of weird for you to have a bass with paint and sparkles!:eek:
