    Thanks ! That is a 1995 Bunker "PBC" w/ tension free neck . I yanked the original EMG's and put those in a Spector w/ HAZ and popped passive Duncans in this . Killer bass indeed !

    The pale blue one and the black and red ones flanking it are my faves. Is the T-40 stock? Never seen a red one with a white pearl pg. :thumbsup:

    5+5...
    C6E63E50-2265-4BEC-B509-2BC124E7BCAC.

    My two 5s...a 2000ish Cort Curbow, and my 2 year old Squier Jaguar Modified...

    1EC41C55-C9B8-4A85-A342-6B21579B7F27.

    I’ve often said that the Cort’s (graphite-some kind of composite) neck is the sweetest, truest, most playable neck I’ve ever known.
    Though not an ‘active’ guy, I Love That Bass.
    That big, chunky lone pickup (stock) is flexible And subtle.
    It feels and sounds like itself...pretty modern, it Loves a new set of Dean Markley Blue Steels!
    Its finish is called ‘Bowling Ball Orange’...;)...an acquired taste, no doubt, but I love the look, the balance, (you do not play it sitting down!), the feel and its growl. :thumbsup:

    I didn’t need a second 5 string.
    96B1D8B4-87C3-48F1-B7DA-E33715B486B3.
    The Jag was a purchase of passion.
    I was just knocked out by its look! I’d never owned a RED bass, and the very first guitar player I ever played with (1969-1972) played a cream colored Jaguar.
    Doesn’t it look cool?!
    The build is solid, the pots are clean and functionally laid out...they mix well!
    The neck is shallow and wide...no humps, no dips, no fingers all scrunched together as you play down toward the nut.

    It weighs a ton.
    Ergonomically, it just doesn’t fit my rib cage.
    I know it’s a good solid bass...I just don’t play it often enough.

    I’d consider selling it, but I Love the look of it.
    I like owning it. :thumbsup:

  8. Rick Danko was phenomenal! "Don't Do It" was such a funky bassline. Another great one is "Up on Cripple Creek."

    got that last week from a TB'r he said it's Ash . it's killer fo sho . That is a Steve McDonald 32" Pink Ivory
    gLg3X4q.

    vF5YNFX.

    I dare say it's one of if not the finest P bass I've had . Opposite of it's cute qualities it's massive and ballys with an aggressive attitude . Thanks to the Aero type 1 and Nordy 2 band . I may put a few more 2bands in after this bass . It's that good .

    A german Warwick Corvette (main bass) with EMG pickups and a Squier VM fretless to experiment. Two is a good start for a beginner i suppose :D IMG_20180227_154655.

    I could look at the one in the middle all day... is that finish a blend of pearlescents or is it the lighting?
