    Yeah that's all I could figure. Unless he's referring to number of strings.

    I think they are all passive, though the one on the right has black knobs over a black pickguard so I'm not 100% sure...

  6. That one does indeed have EMG's in it. No active preamp though.
    The "P" pickup is the theme...

    Awwwww I spent all night trying to come up with more obscure "common" themes:

    • They are all made of some combination of wood, metal, plastic, and magnets
    • All the pickups are black
    • They are all grouped together in a single room, of a particular domicile, located on some planet (Earth? I make no assumptions!)

    ...can I sleep now?

    I know plenty of people make "what bass is this" threads, but I feel like this should be a pretty quick spot for you guys. I've been digging this Jaguar-ish bass that I've seen the bass player/singer for The Dangerous Summer using on his last few tours. Just curious what it is.

    Beautiful. Had one of those back inna day. Was worried the peghead>bridge angle
    would cause winding damage but always seemed to stay in tune and being as
    Steinberger's were en vogue at the time, it was a fun distraction. Wish I still had it.

    NBD! I bought a SX short scale fretless from a member of this forum a few months back. I took it apart and put copper tape in the routings. I was going to do all the mods myself for a learning experience, but I had an accident, resulting in a closed head injury and subdural hemorrhage. That just knocked all the enthusiasm for this project out. I took it to a small shop I've been doing business with and the owner did the job for me, with the parts I bought. I was hoping the shot to the head would have given me SUPER BASS POWERS! :woot: But, it didn't. :(

    He replaced the wiring harness with an Emerson pre made harness, the pickups with Seymour Duncans and the bridge with a Babicz bridge I had in the parts box. The strings are LaBella Tapewound Flats. He did a great job with the bridge, as it wasn't really a direct replacement. The original knobs didn't fit the new harness, so he rummaged around and found the black ones that are on it now. The neck feels a bit thinner. It sounds great!
