    Last night they had a J bass with the old head stock (rosewood neck and sunburst with quiled maple photo flame finish)

    Thought I'd email Kurt today just to make sure that this wasn't an old photo and went to bed happy to be spending more money.

    Photo / listing is gone this morning.
    Was this an old bass they found laying around the warehouse or does he do this to make us miserable? :bawl:

    I believe that Kurt has done this to specifically cause you inexpensive bass trauma. :ninja:

    He seems like a pretty mean guy anyway. ;)

    They frequently get returns and put them up on sale IIRC. If you ever see one of those guys, you should probably jump on it and ask questions after if you really can't stand the new headstocks.

    Kurt found a bunch of old headstock basses (I guess you could call them vintage SX basses) and put them up on the web site. You gotta move fast when it comes to SX basses. There's no time to think, just purchase.

    Why did they change them anyway! I just got interested in the too.
     
  7. I was on the phone with my wife when there was one left (as in one). She pointed out that I'm buying a motorcycle this week, so no old headstock SX for me. Boo.

    Old headstock basses are incredibly difficult to lean into a corner. Enjoy the bike, you lucky....

    So it looks like I'm not the only one not digging the new headstocks up there now...

    I finally had some extra scratch burning a hole in my pocket, so I decide on an SX for a 5 string project bass and... D'OH! I just can't get behind that new headstock, man.
     
  11. I only hate the headstock when I read threads about it on here. Everytime I look at them I'm OK with them. They're not the greatest, but they ain't bad.
     
  12. Bass VI maybe?
     
  13. Indeed!

    I got my roman numerals confuzzled.

    I have an old headstock LPB maple fretless that a million people wanted (but nobody came through on) when I put it up for sale previously. If anyone wants it (particularly in the bay area), let me know. I just want space in the house.
     
  16. also i have a classic SX p-bass neck (rosewood) just sitting in my closet. i'm not going to be using it for anything so if anyone wants it they can have it for nothing (plus shipping). it's missing 2 tuners though, iirc.

    Why not just mod the headstock? Apparently they can be easily converted to the old headstock or made to look identical to Fender's.
