    There's probably a better picture on John's Facebook page, but here's my Bluesman Vintage version of a 1966 Slab Precision. It is amazingly good. I was a little unsure how I would like a pre-aged bass vs. brand new, but it feels, sounds and plays wonderfully. Here's a picture next to my rig (one channel is my bass into a Verellen Meat Smoke - gain channel - one channel is my bass into a Jule Monique - both preamps are also great).

    Count me in.
    I've bought three basses from John. All play and sound amazing.
    But, my favorite is my 2010 Jazz. Defretted and epoxied by HG Thor Labs. Still my go to bass after three years.
    Always gassing for another.

    Badass! I'm digging the new headstock more than I thought I would... Did you check out the 2 sunburst eldorado's while you were there? One of those is my new build...:bassist:

    Maybe I'm to old school.
    Not digging the new head-stock at all.
    Prefer the older version.
