  4. These are 2 of my favourite colour combinations ever. The black P looks absolutely gorgeous.
    I usually hate tort but it looks ok with turquoise.

    I never change strings, but thought I'd finally give the DR coated strings a try..put Black Beauties on the Fender Jazz and the Neon Pinks on the Epi EB3...both sound great! DSC_1249.

    I traded a "lesser" Jazz for this 1966. I had been looking at the opportunity to buy it for half a year. Sold as a refin, but if it is, it's ancient. Cost me all the same almost what my other 6 basses are worth. Will it make me a better player? I hope so. The sound is huge and I could set it up very low.

  17. It’s time for an update: Family came altogether.
    43BDEFB1-1C50-4588-BB73-46F288498DAE.
    Jericho Alpha Blacker 2018
    Fender Aerodyne 2014
    MusicMan Stingray BFR 2011
    Fender active PJ late 80‘s
    Rickenbacker 4003 2008
    Epiphone TB Classic 4Pro 2017
    Marathon Pro 1992 (starting point)
    Fame Deuce 2016
    Lakland 44-64 Skyline Custom 2019
    Epiphone El Capitan 1994

    I have to admit, that the GAS increased drastically within the last few years. There are only a few checkpoints to clear. But in general I am pretty done.
    FYI I have never ever sold a bass and I am not planning to do in the future.

    Which one is your favorite?

    Beautiful collection, I've been considering an Aerodyne. Any thoughts on yours ? Would be very interested.
     
  19. Lakland, because it’s the newest entry. But I am also pleased by the Jericho. Stunning bass and Big Bang for the money. The StewMac Pups are really nice
