    What's the difference between Modern and Vintage? Also, how do I reserve one?

    Will the modern knob layout be the sort U-shaped one you use?

    Which bass were you interested in? 1/2 the basses are in production and have control layouts drilled. The other 1/2 is still in spray and can get any control layout you like.

    I am in. Got the black ash/maple fiver 17/8, 19mm on reserve. Going with chrome hardware. The guts will be Nordy 2b w/VTC . NPJ5S PJ pickups. Reverse P configuration.

    First black bass I have ever owned. Never been a fan. Went with a tort PG to give it a classic look.

    When do I get a teaser pic!! :)

    Hey Nino,

    What's the difference in the two maple dotted fiver necks in that photo?

    One has more of a "yellowed" finish and the other is very white.

    I like the band aids.
    Nino is a great guy to deal with.

    The band aid is an "inside joke" between @Carey and I. LOL
