    Ah nice ones!

    Even though you see them quite often (I got one myself as my main) those sunburst jazz-basses still look really nice! And I gotta say yours looks absolutely stunning! Nice vintagey hue. NOS finish on it?

    I can see why you'd be pretty happy with those: well done!
  6. love the Pino signature P.. i mean.. I LOVE IT... LOVE IT LOVE IT.. you know ?
  7. Three beautiful basses, my friend - absolutely beautiful! :)

    Funnily enough, they remind me of some of the best basses which I have owned, over the years. I have always drooled at the sight/thought of a natural MusicMan with a black scratchplate and a maple fretboard, and eventually bought one about 10 years ago... a lovely, powerful, versatile bass with its own character.
    And the first bass which I ever GASsed for was a sunburst Fender Jazz. In my case it was actually a Noel Redding signature model, and it was the first Fender which I had ever seen in person! It was love at first sight, and to this day I still think about tracking one of them down!
    And the beautiful Precision, with a tortoiseshell scratchplate - a torty 62 reissue Precision was my number 1 gigging bass, and it held that slot more than any other bass before or since.

    Congratulations on your incredible bass collection, and thankyou for giving me a trip down memory lane! :bassist:

    Nice! All those basses...that'll cure any GAS. And you got a Pino Palladino signature. I'm jealous...he's one of the reasons I'm getting into bass (next to my father N' law). How much did the Pino bass cost. (if you don't mind divulging that information...)

    You've covered the bassics (pun intended) - J-bass, P-bass and MM. Only other place to go now is boutiques :D

    While I agree that these basses are amazing, and that if i had them i would be extremely happy, it cannot ever fully stop GAS. Theres sadowsky's, laklands, ritters, etc....

    yep NOS finish!

    there's something about these sunburst basses that never grow old on me, and on a lot of people I think!
    I fell in love with this jazz the moment I played it, I was lucky enough that the previous owner decided to sell it to me for a good price!

    wow... you right now are where i would love to be many many years down the line with a bass collection. i just bought my first (fender P) and literally changed my mind a dozen times as to if i wanted a fender P, fender J, or ernie ball. hopefully one day... i'll be lucky enough to own them all.
