    Great photo, looks like you are digging into it! Does that qualify as Bass Face? :D I've always pictured you as literally Fred Sanford. You Crazy Kids and your Avatars!

    Regarding the fake Rick on eBay, I caught the narrow truss rod channel. That was easy.

    Good catch by @rickdog on the thin black inner binding. Something did seem off about the binding. It seemed to stand out too clear, but I couldn’t tell why. I actually like that binding treatment better.

    Sort of a bass face thing! My first name is Fred and I love Sanford and Son, so the avatar seemed appropriate. ;)

    20190515_175336. 20190515_180245. I'm in the process of modding an old 4001 tailpiece to replace the generic looking Schaller bridge on my new S5. It will sport a custom machined aluminum bridge insert supplied by our own Jeff Rath. Thanks again Jeff! Here it is so far. I have to slot the front of the tailpiece for intonation adjustment.
