  3. I proudly request a number as a sign of my loyalty to the Order of the Tort. Behold the tort of a Talman. 091E931F-4CDB-4295-A83A-5E33E3AE0C1C.

    Currently my one and only TORT-ified bass

    Well, here's a few pics of my Dillion 534-004 Semi-Hollow that I bought brand new in November 2017
    ykyy8e7dsyyqlsshwkju-. wjat8jioi9efpergozxz-.

    Bound Maple semi-hollow body
    Bound F holes and a 4 ply pickguard
    Bound set neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard
    White Pearl dot inlays + side markers
    20 Hand polished 2.7 mm Frets
    Wilkinson deluxe bass gears
    1 ½ inch Graphite nut width
    Two volume, two tone, plus a 3 way switch
    2 Dillion custom alnico pickups
    D’Addario Strings ( 45 – 100 )
    34 Scale length
    11 inch radius

    The mud bucker tone knob is push-pull for coil split and really changes the clarity of the mud bucker pup without noticeable noise

    I guess this is based on a cross between the old Gibson EB-2D and the newer Midtown?
    It is a little on the heavy side but it is really nice fit, finish and sound wise

    May I have a Numbah Pah-leeez?

    Please, accept this rather awkward portrait as legitimation of my tortness.

  18. I actually like this photo. On my phone screen it shows beautiful, full autumnal colours. And I dig maple fingerboards!

    I herewith award you the number #2014. Congrats and welcome!

    Thanks! Yea, I decided to crop the photo before posting. Otherwise it would have been more of a crotch-shot - which would have been awkward and unsettling for all of us.
