    I guess this qualifies. The infamous Troll bass, it's a pos but I love it so... Two volumes and a tone. New jack for actives mounted on front in place of a original knob. It had some 'spector' labeled pickups stock, swapped for emg many years back.

    Here's my old '93 American Precision Deluxe Plus (I guess). It was my last 4-string ... I sold it to a friend.

  9. what is that one Turock? looks like it gets around the pan pot issue via a pickup selector switch. yes?

    any 5 strings about?

    any actives?

    here's a couple of pics i have collected and can't remember where i got em from or any details so if they are yours give us the rundown.

    really like control layout details on the surf green one. can't work out if i can be asked making mine active or just goin for the old school passive that i love. still get that neorotic feeling i am just gonna think about putting in active until i do. know what i mean? G.A.S. - its like a fever

    The Green one looks like a U-Retro deluxe (I'm 90% sure)

    The other is msellers Benavente 51. His is an Aero P/J set run passive with Vol - Vol - Tone. He runs it through an outboard pre (Sadowsky I believe).

    another guy here on TB has an active P/J Benavente 51 5 string... it's got a natural Black Limba body.

    Yamaha BBX-4 ... This is a brand new bass that came from Tokyo, not available in the USA. It's exactly the same as the old 80's BB-1600. Bolt-on/Alder/Rosewood.

    Passive/Vol/Vol/Tone

  17. Picture an Alverez, with transparent black paint job, 4 strings, 22 frets, and a p/j set-up.
    Good little bass, served me well for 2 years, though its time for an upgrade.
