    Both of mine are great basses, but the blond is a marvel.

    Nope that's a 1960 that i had refinished in 1985 Oly white with the original pickguard that was on the bass when I bought it in 74. I had it off the bass in storage for many years when I was on the road with the 60. About 8 years ago I put it back on.

    Someone pulled the frets out and it is a fun thing to.monkey around with but I have trouble keeping it anywhere near in tune. Thinking about putting new tuners on it and making a new pick guard. Insure wish I could find out it's history.

    Very nice. Are those the tapewound gold? How would you describe their sound compared to typical roundwound and flatwound?

    It’s still early but I would like to say they have a VERY well defined sound. Clear, cutting, exact.
    I’ve found the initial tension to be a bit high but I’m hoping that will change slightly. I do wish the E was tapered but not really a big deal.

    they may be the best sounding flats I’ve tried which I didn’t expect going in. I just saw them as a new option to take a shot at. This bass May wear them for life now though depending on how they age.
