    Is the plural of tortoise "torti?"

    As you ponder such musings, please post a picture of your tort-adorned beauty. If you have multiple torti, be at ease to share them all. It's always a luxury...

    I will eventually own a medium scale Jazz bass such as this:

  5. Well no pictures but my tort is at home right now waiting for me, looks just like that 72 P bass above except it´s a new Tony Franklin fretless and it´s a beautiful looking and playing bass.

    And i thought putting the EMG GZR in it made it sound good...........

    It's the tort that did it.

    My babies... The Jazz tort looks kind of speckled until you get it in the right light and it's true tort nature is revealed. Nothing spectacular here, but I love my "kids". 14 amstd precision.jpg 98 amdlx jazz.jpg

    Pickups may come and go, but it's the tortitude that leads to the fortitude to continue on!

    No. Original neck with sloppy paint on the headstock and the back of the neck from a long time ago. (I didn't do it.)
