    Tracking went all goofy sometime Friday night, but before it did, my new-to-me vintage bass was checked in at the local UPS hub, and scheduled for delivery today. Now it just says 'in transit' which I guess could mean anything. :bored:

    I know da' rulez... so here's why I took the day off. (actually, a couple more days off...) :woot:

    Custom Distillate fretless (front).

    Custom Distillate fretless (back).

    So maybe it's today, or tomorrow... :yawn:Meanwhile, I'm just waiting here, doing housework, drinking coffee... good coffee too, not that awful Monday morning swill they got at work. :smug:

    FWIW, there's a new set of strings and all my setup tools already sitting on the kitchen table. But I ain't anxious or anything... naw, not me. :nailbiting:

    What was that going up the road!? Just the garbage truck. No bass yet. :rolleyes:

    Hmmm... status has now changed to 'out for delivery today'. Maybe they got tired of me pinging the tracking number? :laugh:

    It showed up... at my neighbors house. So much for Signature Required. :rollno: They're fine folks, and brought it right over. :thumbsup:

    As a character-building exercise, I'm going to finish up a project I'm working on before opening it up. (no looks okay... no holes punched through or caved-in corners)

    2017-11-27 15.39.44.

    Back in a little bit... :cool:

    Well, I spent the whole evening restringing, tweaking, and playing on this one.

    First things first - the guy I bought this from did an outstanding job of packing it for shipping. It was perfectly cushioned on all sides, even the bass inside its case was packed. Awesome job. :thumbsup:

    What can I say about this one? It's a brand-new 32 year-old bass. You've heard of mint condition... this one really is. Nary a scratch or ding on it anywhere... plain-n-simple it is new old stock.

    On with the pictures!
