    Here's my SX stingray bass ... The original neck was badly S curved, the original preamp buzzed badly, The new neck is one fret shorter sot the bridge had to be moved. It currently has an Audere 4 band preamp. It wired so each coil of the humbucker acts like a single coil pickup. The body is elm.

    Thats a cool and unique collection. Your #1 is just wicked! The case alone is really cool to me. I assumed the sword was a sharpening steel to keep all those points lethal! Lol!

    What type is your#2 with the resonator?

    Cheers and welcome to TB!

    Steve Wisnevsky built that. It is purely acoustic, no pickup. Steve builds interesting instruments under the name Wishbass. I have always thought the resonator would compliment fretless bass and he built this for very cheap, which is his thing; affordable, experiental instruments out of recycled and repurposed materials. This bass is very tough and compact so it goes with me everywhere.

    They're about even. Both have drawn blood. Mine included.

    I've only ever seen 2 , this one included . The other had a full carbon fiber neck , That was back in the 80's . These have a big center chunk of it and no truss rod . Somehow it's always perfect though .

    If I'm not mistaken that stripe on the neck is solid carbon fiber, hence the lack of truss rod.

  18. Got this little fella out for a bit. Don't know why I let it languish unmolested for weeks because it's always like "oh, where YOU been?" when I bust it out. One of those "perfect" parts piles. 20211013_150421.jpg
