    Hi again.

    I've just taken some pictures of my current bass family and thought I'd like to share a couple of them with you:

    Family200901.

    From left to right: 1999 red Sendel EUB made in Cali (Colombia), 1985 black Steinberger XL2, 2006 Desert Gold fretless 5-string EBMM Bongo, 2006 FireGlo Rickenbacker 4003, 1981 Peavey T-40, 2005 Lava Pearl 5-string EBMM Bongo, circa 2003 Honda ABG made in Bucaramanga (Colombia) and unknown-year/brand double bass with German bow. Also my complete vinyl records collection, which I've just put (and will stay) there.

    Family200902.

    Right now I'm not supposed to suffer from GAS because:

    1- I'm still in honeymoon stage with my Steinberger XL2
    2- I'm FLAT BROKE!

    But anyway, there are two items missing:

    1- A non-Fender Kubicki Ex Factor (Used, in near-perfect condition and at a fair price)

    2- A 100% custom bass (maybe two - fretted and fretless if I feel completely satisfied with the first one)

    ...and I'll be set (I think). :cool:

    Thanks for your time! :)

    The "metal" (actually plastic) cover plate that comes stock with the instrument (I think that's what you're talking about).

    Yeah, I see it now. It had a reflection and looked like there was bare wood in the pup spot. I guess I'm so used to seeing exposed rick bridge pups.

    Nice basses!
     
  6. Very nice collection Alvaro!
