    So I’ve been wondering, is it possible to install the preamp from a US model into a Euro ? This may have been asked or covered before. So my apologies if it’s been asked to death lol

    If you’re thinking about installing an actual 9V HAZ Labs preamp, then yes, I believe the board is small enough to fit into the cavity for a Euro bass

    Yeah I’m thinking about getting one from Spector. It’s betwen that a DG tone Capsule and a Aguilar OBP3

    Just an FYI, I listed my white Euro 5 JJ (Darryl Anders) on the FB SBN page. It will probably be listed in the TB classifieds and elsewhere, eventually. This was owned previously by Tom and Michael. The one with Barts and Darkglass TC. Needing to free-up space for a new build, and I'm in no particular hurry to sell.

    Yeah, that’s completely insane for a stock NS-2A with neck issues. Just because somebody from Twisted Sister owned it :greedy:

    If you don’t mind me asking, what strings are you using on these?

    I was in contact with them about that a week ago. Spector gave Eddie that bass and I think he is unaware of the difference. The broker is clueless on it. They've been informed. If it sells as an advertised "NS2" and then they send it back as misrepresented, it'll be the brokers hard lesson.

    “Right now the truss rod is maxed, with some relief still in the neck. It has a medium action to it. There are some spots of wear around the body, and one of the control knobs is missing.”

    Take my money, please!

    Ah, ok. I was wondering if those were black beauties or tapewounds. Thank you. I am waiting for delivery this week of a used Legend 4 Classic and am trying to decide what strings I am going to start with. I have sets of Sunbeams, Roto 66 Nickels and Boomers unopened on the shelf but I am considering Flatwound or Tapewound also. Probably will end up with Sunbeams but we’ll see.

    Yes, the 9V HAZ pre will fit in the Euro. You will have to ream the control holes a little bigger to accommodate the larger pot shafts.

    Looks like a rough and noisy string

    So has anyone put a Aguilar OPB-3 with DCB soapbars in a Rebop? I just heard this combination and it sounded fantastic.
