    Nice basses! Here's a photo of my Fodera, which you may have already seen. Got it just over a month ago.

    I recently built a wooden cover for the electronics cavity. I'm not the best at wood working but I think it's much better than the stock plastic cover.

    Here's my new P-bass.

    I think this one might be a keeper.

    OK, I'll play Devil's Advocate. :)

    I don't know about the -63 Laklands. Just looks like something's missing!

    If I'm going to play a bass with ashtrays and a yellowed fingerboard, it's gonna be a Jazz (though it should really have a rosewood board).

    And maybe it's just me, but I find the 20th Anniv. Stingrays to be downright ugly. Just about every other color configuration looks good to me, but not that one. I don't think figured maple belongs on a Ray.

    Anyway, nice basses. :) Which ones did you lose to get these?

    It's nice, but I like my Hanewinckels better. It has a good sound, but a few buzzy frets. And the 36" scale is too big for my hands. The graphite neck and 36" scale make it kind of a monster - the day I got it I tuned it down a fifth to EADGC (E an octave below low E), and it still sounded pretty good! The neck didn't move a bit.

    I'm thinking of selling it and the MTD Kingston and getting another Hanewinckel, bolt-on w/ the same pickup locations as on my fretless.
