    Finally, I am able to award those of you that wish to see it a picture of my axe. The green paint is gone and has been replaced with that of the flat black variety. Trust me, it's very dapper.

    It won't be long when JT comes back from Toronto that he'll get yet another reason to post his collection.

  6. Lefty Punk Bass, that is a sweet Carvin. I've always been fascinated with left handed instruments they look so... backwards.

    The headless is a Steinberger XL-2. The picture isn't a good one. The "Mutant P-bass" started out as a 74 stock Fender. The neck was shot so I replaced it with a rosewood covered one and replaced the pick-ups with EMG and added a DiMarzio bridge. The body was built by a woodworking friend (No Experience with instruments!). It is Ash and the stripes are
    Bubinga and Wenge. The pickgaurd was made by him as well from a drawing I made and he recessed it flush into the body and routed the controls from the rear. He only charged me $30.00 for everything. It sounds sweet and can take a beating and still play in tune. I haven't had to set it up in over 10 yrs. Now that's stable. I think it could give my Steinberger a run for it's money

    i have enough money for a digital camera, but if i was going to spend money on a digital camera, i would probably wind up buying a a fretless fender instead, but i need money for a car when i turn 16, and i need money for insurance, too.

    Hey Groove,

    I find it interesting that players that like Alembics, also dig Steinbergers (e.g. Andy West). Your MK Signature is beautiful.

    I'll post my amended line up once I get a shot of my GT-7.

    The current line up:

    Alembic Essence 5 String
    Conklin Groove Tools 7 String
    Fender American Jazz Deluxe 5 String
    Steinberger XL-2DA]
