    The Yammie is is such great condition for its age, frets are almost gone though, just sounds so fat and warm, the Heerby Ric copy.. what can I say.. I like the way it sounds better than my real Ric (sorry) and the Greco.. looks like its come straight out a shop.. its mint.

    I've got two vintage basses, my 1978 Rickenbacker 4001 in Azureglo, and my 1981 G&L L1000 fretless.

    And although it isn't QUITE vintage yet, here is my 1986 EBMM Stingray- a trans-era bass from right after Ernie Ball's purchase of the company:

    My '72 Jazz bass. Was previously owned by "Baker" of Madseason (PJ & AIC side project band). The guy died of a Heroin OD not unlike his more famous band mate, Layne Staley.

    I'll take a Number..for this newly aquired 79' Yamaha Pulser 400 Lawsuit bass with passive EMG's for now and all original otherwise. Owned by a couple of previous TB'ers. Ended up having to refinish and oil the headstock as someone pulled the logo off.

    hey - that headstock certainly looks a lot nicer than when i had that bass. nice job. by the way, the jazz bass-sized pickup cover was my own contribution; it didn't come with the bass. just thought you might want to know.

    no...that USED to be my bass. i've owned plenty of vintage in the past, but don't currently. so unless former basses get you in the club, i don't deserve a number. although my main player has an '83 neck on it, i guess.....
