    I do not know if I posted this here - but I was asked about it.

    2 string cigar box bass - built by a friend with all top stuff - even a Havana box.

  4. What is the string spacing at the bridge on the G&L JB-5?

    16.5-17mm, Feels the same as a SR5, 1.77mm at the nut but the neck is a tad slimmer.
     
  6. I love that color. It works with pretty much anything. You got a great deal, have fun with that!

    Interesting. I have a redburst tribute L2500 and the edges aren't nearly as dark. I suppose that is a color difference between USA and overseas. Either way, you've got yourself a beautiful bass!

    Current family lineup

    1. Ibanez Roadstar II RB630 with TIJFs. This is my main bass and it gets 95% of my playtime.
    2. Schecter Raiden Special-4 with D’Addario ProSteels. I keep it around for contrast and sentimentality.
    3. Ibanez AEB5E with GHS Precision Flats. I don’t play it a lot but the huge neck feels great and it’s fun to jam around with. I need to get a new set of D’Addario Tapes for it; my last set spent 7 years on this bass and they are the perfect string for it.

    The purple Modulus is my main bass, the other Mod is it's backup. The Status Empathy and the Stingray are auditioning for being keepers. The Status is a slap monster, it's incredible how easy it is to slap on, but it's finger-style tones give me pause. The Stingray I'm starting to get used to. Anyway, this is my current lineup.

    Very tasty set of finish colors. Gorgeous quartet !
     
  15. For years and years, I had two GAS items: Spector Euro and Status S2
    The Spector I bought last month. Seeing your collection makes me wanna have a Status so badly. GAS is a sweet pain, which never heals.

    Yes that is the one - and the pick guard is a little darker than normal. The 2021 version (this one) has a Fender 75 year decal also a "F" neck plate (which I do not remember from last years model). Also the strings line up better on the pickup that I have seen on earlier models.

    So this one just seem nicer?

    You may notice the machine screw in place of the bridge hex binding screw. When I received the bass in a trade, the hex screw was missing. I have looked at every source I know of for the proper replacement with no luck. Anybody know where I can get a proper replacement hex screw?

    Last time I asked that question, I had a pretty unpleasant afternoon with the HR department.

    Come to think of it, that would definitely get me kicked out of Megadeth.
