    Thanks Fellas ! That is my official #1 . I just put in a Duncan 60's Pride and it's just pure magic . I also put in a Tonestyler a while back. She gives up some killer tones with very little effort . 1 of 2 Pittman basses Paul built under the Pittman name and I'm very lucky to have it . \m/
  3. Just finished assembling the Squier CV Mustang project.

    Yeah, that split little Alinco pup has some nice tones... And they look great on such a fancy painted BG!
  5. Thanks, I was surprised how good it sounds. Very similar in output levels to the other two, one being a Nordstrand and the other the original Vista Tone. Now I just have to learn how adjust this new one for tone so I can swap out at gigs and keep things close for the sake of the PA.

    It's correct, used the 3/8 ones, but needed to widen the headstock holes. The bridge wasn't a drop in, but it was really easy to install.

  7. Just picked this up. Traded in a guitar that I don't play anymore. Nice sound but I'm going to swap out the strings for a set if Chrome and a thumb rest.

    My latest family pic: These are all of my non-wind bass/bass type instruments. Turns out, I have 7 bass guitars, a bass uke, and a bass banjo. From the top left:

    ZZ Ryder Low Rider - Found it in a pawn shop. At the time, I had a Beatle Bass copy (wish I still had it), and I thought this was what Paul McCartney would play in the mirror universe where Spock had a beard...

    Squier Bronco - Cheap, but nice to take when you don't want to take your good bass.

    Birdsong 5 String - My latest and greatest acquisition. My first 5 string. Fat, beautiful sound. I am still coming to grips with the 5th string, but it just feels like it was made for me (and actually, it was)

    Birdsong Cortobass - I have had this for around 13 years. Like its sibling the 5 string, it is a much better bass than my playing will ever warrant... but one of a kind, and it is mine.

    Birdsong Cortobass - I have had this for around 13 years. Like its sibling the 5 string, it is a much better bass than my playing will ever warrant... but one of a kind, and it is mine....

    Viking Bass - an Epiphone EB-0 offa Craigslist. I added 2 pickups. made it string-through, and gave it my own custom paint job (it shows) to play with my kids at ball games. Go Colton!

    Squier SS Jaguar - Another cheap-o... but surprisingly good. Was a great backup to the Corto on a gig.

    Bottom from the left:
    Kala U-bass Bass Ukulele - A gift from a friend (nice gift!)... A nice light, fun, stand-uppy sounding bass... A legit, fun little axe!

    Bass Banjo - Homebrew (not by me!) bass banjo. Sounds very stand-uppish, no banjo twang. Fun to play with my jazz kids at school or bluegrass sets at church. Sounds great and turns heads. (Guy's wife wanted it outta the house, I got it for a steal!)

    Daisy Rock Acoustic BG - Yeah, it's pink. I was gonna re-paint it when I got it cheap, but is actually nicer than I thought it would be when I saw it... Nice to take out in the yard to play when the kids were little.

    There ya go... Some of em are cheap. But all of em are fun.
