    I don't do 6 strings and rarely 5s anymore. At my age I've come full circle back to the 4s where I started. I have enough strings to change already. Lol

    Quite the Statustician there.

    Edit: Are those LED's that came in the necks or d'you have them done?

    I am currently drooling-er-looking over the Status price list and they offer a variety of LED options. I am not sure one can easily slip them in after purchase...

    Its expensive either way. SIMMS can install LEDs on an existing guitar but I'd suggest getting it done with the build. FretFX also sells a kit that you apply on the outside that works great for about $100. It adheres to the side of the neck and does not impede on your playability.

    NBD!

    1976 Rickenbacker 3000. Rickenbacker’s take on the shortscale bass. I’m really enjoying this bass and learning to appreciate it more and more each day.

    E2E8A63B-25FD-4FED-AEE5-7506FE6BE906.

    And here it is next to my main bass, the Hofner V62. They go well together!

    @EdBo Sorry for the late response. If I had to sell all but two, which would I keep. The top left is a TT4 Masterpiece so I would definitely keep that - A fabulous instrument. I think the other would be the Red Forty Eight - Lower left. Thats just a sick looking (and playing) bass.

    Loving the Rebirth Custom Bass IV with my new Orange 50, British squared, why yes. The pickups sound glorious with dimes gain and a pick D073EB19-B91F-4265-A3BA-AFF99078392F.

    Thanks! It’s far from all original; definately a player’s bass. That’s what I love about it.

    Ok, I'm curious as to what is non-original -I figured possibly the bridge (a better choice than on most Rics) and probably the P-pu (again, not a Ric deal) and the pg which is cool because it echoes the early Ric guitars with 'full-frontal-pg's' from the 50's. As I said, I wasn't aware Ric did a ss bass and whoever did the mods did a good job. :thumbsup:

    You’re spot on! Also one strap button and the nut are unoriginal, but those will be rectified soon. And I was thinking the same thing about the pickguard, good eye! I actually prefer it to the stock one.

    AE1025E3-ED32-4FFD-92A1-D9B410237A15. Here’s a Squier affinity P that was mine and I refinished for a friend. I had modded it extensively in the past and she offered to buy it from me “if I painted it shell pink”...well, I never play this bass and figured the proceeds from this bass could go towards the Rickenbacker I just bought. This bass has sentimental value to me, so she agreed that if she ever wants to get rid of it, she’d sell it back to me. Fair fair, but I guarantee she’ll keep this bass for life, it’s a very good one! Here’s the finished product; I’m really happy with how it came out!

    NHBD! (new half bass day, or is that half new bass day?) Meet Tiger (no real points for how the bass got its name - its kinda obvious). The neck was on another bass, but this body came up in Warmoths' site, and it was really light, so I now have a bass that weighs 3023 grams - a little under 6.7 pounds. I also have been wanting to try a high contrast finish on Swamp Ash, so this was a chance to do that.

    Fairly well known trick: Stain it dark, let it cure a few days, sand it back until just the grain has dark stain in it, then go over it with a lighter stain. A lot of work, but the results seem to be worth it.
