    Nice. How does it sound (compared with a normal PJ)?

    Sounds great, the J is usable here. Both pickups sounds great, Reverend does some cool stuff. the neck is sublime

    Yes, the Fatfish 32's neck is perfect for me. slim and fast. The Rumblefish's neck was wonderful as well.

    Yeah, the T40 was quite a beast.

    (at the risk of someone using a Mae West joke...) Are those custom knobs on your Fatfish?

    Why yes they are, strats for the obvious and a Gretsch for the mix

    I had that bass ordered, but at last minute I canceled. Maybe some day.

    It comes with a MM style pup instead of the J pup, now, I believe.

    A brand new shot of my old Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Bass, after a successful GSRM20B Weathered Black finish body transplant, with a DiMarzio Model P wired directly to the output jack socket, which I by the way also changed from the stock barrel type jack socket to a standard front mounted one:

    Since the lockdown here in March and with no gigs in the foreseeable future I had to do something, so I managed to find and acquire 4 basses that have been on my "gotta get one of those" list for years.
    When these exc specimens showed up I made the grabs.

    First up, '79 Ovation Magnum IV in Silverburst:

    '86 Yamaha Motion-B-BII:

    '87 Gibson IV:

    '14 Ruby Red Ric 4003:
    IMG_20210105_160955.jpg

    I am enjoying these additions immensely and cannot wait to get them out there live! I was very lucky to grab these - they are basically closet classics. And they really play great!!! Especially glad to have a Ric again.

    Thanks, and not very common for sure. Then it was like karma...within 4 months I found these specimens. Just glad they didn't all show up at once!!
