Well, a four pot configuration + batterie + circuit board will not fit without routing. Three pots and the circuit board will. But where to put the batterie then?
I will have to think about about that. I already switched the bridge and drilled the hole to get the cable into the electronics department, but now I'm stuck. I have to talk to my wood guy, if he's got an idea.
Would love to try that Fortress after you finished the mod :)

Thinking of replacing the bone nuts of my 8 string and 10 string with brass nuts. Is it worth the costs?
If it was me and I had the money......I'd do it

Haven't bought any new bass gear in about 10 months......way to long.

So I'm going to black out this bass......bridge, tuners, knobs on the way

Guys, I must confess: I have been unfaithful, and ordered a Kiesel 6 string fretless Zeus bass yesterday :eek:

Custom Shop Gallery

Now the wait for them to build mine begins...!

I'm totally jealous. I was just "fantasy building" these on their website yesterday. If and when I can afford to, I'll probably go with the Osiris. But I really like the Zeus too.

What options did you get?

I went for black limba body and neck, black burst edges, active electronics, black fret lines and "royal ebony" fingerboard. Beyond that, standard, IIRC.

Nice. I was eyeballing the black limba myself. I think it's just as sexy as walnut, at a fraction of the cost.

Something like this:

Kiesel are great instruments, with great options and affordable.
Eager to hear what you think about the instrument once you got it!

welp I pulled the trigger on the pre-order of the Darkglass Alpha Omega 900 head this week. I got a carvin b2000 last year to blast my practice room around when i wanted to and it was fine. Recently joined a band and I just cant trust it after a few gittery startups and a few known problems..Anyway sent it packing with my AOU pedal aswell as I cannot justify both. a bit over a month wait but i'll make do... I just cant ignore the amount of awesomeness this thing has cramped into it and I know I will be very happy. One day I will go all tube when I move back to a bigger city because if anything went wrong/needed service out here I would be up for obscene freight costs and waiting times.

Oh I also bought a Temple Audio duo17 pedalboard...2019 the year of no basses..ergh

I'm not buying any new gear until everything I presently have is running properly.
Power Amp, Mixer, Ashdown 400 Klystron all sorted
Should have the fretted Jazz Bass back Tuesday

I also have to pack all my shit up because after 8 years the house is going to be repaired ...we had bad earthquakes here in 2010/11

And, as I was not very sure I'd be heard with this lil' silver box and a Ninja 2x12, I found this one :

So, basically, I have a 1000W amp that'll drive a 2x12 + 1x1, 1x5, 1x12.
Should be enough, methinks.

Yeah there is a large Genzler thread over at talkbass, so I read up on them, and watched a lot of videos. I actually spoke a lot to Jeff who owns the company. I managed to find a local shop that had them, actually their other location had them , and they transferred them over for me to try. Very impressed, nice and meaty but the top end is very sweet. The 2 profiles on the amp are very cool, and I found the EQ very sensitive. Very different from my ahartke in that the bottom end is fuller, if not as tight, it I really loved it. Very excited to get them here and hope to jam with the band on the weekend. Jeff was a ton of help, and we went back and forth a lot since I am a questions guy lol.
