    I'm not really a cover 'n tray guy, but there's also a part of me that thinks they add a classic, classy kind of touch, especially to a vintage burst.

    Very nice! Looks just like the four-string version of my Precision V (near the bottom of the previous page in this thread).

    It’s here.....and by golly it’s gorgeous plus a little something different....
    Shipped from across the pond on Wednesday and at my door this morning in a double box...shipping was $64

    Here’s some pics

D48CFB44-931A-40EC-8012-99DCD30B4AA6.

    Bought the case on eBay brand new for $60 on Wednesday and it arrived yesterday in time for today!

    $60 free shipping. See internal dimensions below.
    Bass Guitar Hard Case Fits Most Standard Electric Bass Guitars Hardshell Black 811501026334 | eBay

    Only bass I have made in India

    Not a blemish I can find on it. Finish is first rate. Looks like Wilkinson hardware all around which I’m guessing is MIC.
    Controls all check out with smooth operation and no crackling or static.

    Neck is thin and feels great though I’d rather have a satin finish on the back of the neck than the gloss finish.

    Worth every penny or shilling

    Can you pick out my special request item? Think Fender MIA GL and you should be able to figure it out

    Thanks Steve @chowny !

    Now to lock myself in the house and woodshed all day!!!!!
  7. This acoustic bass guitar arrived torted, but I felt it was a bit dull, as seen in the first photo.

    So I untorted and retorted.

    I am not generally of the tort persuasion myself, but I bring friendly tidings from the Jeff Lynne's ELO show on Friday night in Atlanta: It looks like Lee Pomeroy can be counted among your number. He was rocking a lefty Jazz that appeared to be foam green-ish, with a tort pg. Apologies for the sub-par pics, but from my station up in the cheap seats, long zooms and shots of the video screen were the only options. Nonetheless, I offer the following:

    Lee Pomeroy J-1.

    Lee Pomeroy J-2. Lee Pomeroy J-3. Lee Pomeroy J-4. Lee Pomeroy J-5.

    Awesome show, by the way. :hyper:

    Carry on with your tort'ly enjoyment! :thumbsup:

  17. I actually quite like those pics. There's a good vibe to them. Thanks!

    Thank you! It was a great night. Jeff Lynne does things right, and Mr. Pomeroy is a hoot to watch, whoever he's playing with. Nothing like seeing a guy play upside down and left-handed to remind me just where my skill level is. :laugh:
