    Looks great! And the Wal vibe is all over it. That's a good thing!

    New bass day on Tuesday, new kitties day on Thursday! They are now two hours old. Tomorrow I play a song for them. Important to train their hearing right from the beginning!

    Well, I thought with my Corvette $$5 leaving the house that I will focus on 4 strings only. But then this one came along on the local adds: Mayones BE exotic (custom NT); active Bartolinis: vol., bal., mids push pull 400/800, stacked treble/bass. Neck is amazing, very fast.

    Picked these up for next to nothing;

    Ibanez EDB550, Washburn XB-600 and a Fretless Mexican jazz.
    The Washburn needs some work and waxing ,the strings are super dead on that one so I put that one away for now.

    The jazz is just that, a jazz. Good bass, nice and weighty.

    But that Ibanez is just spectacular! Wenge and bubinga neck, VERY lightweight but with a fatter neck then usual on Ibanez. Radiussed pickups made by Seymour Duncan.
    Had a luthite Ibanez that didn't work out that well, but these are amazing. Someone told me these were transitional models where they kept the Ergodyne name but went back to using proper woods, and before releasing the Grooveline and the Affirma.

    Ibanez looks great too. That Washburn (I had the 4 string version) is really good for the money, sounds nice warm and fat.
    Is the neck on that fretless jazz leaning over to the left? The E string has a lot more spare room around it then the G does. Looks like the neck could do with a yank to the right to sit more straight on the body?

    The setup is a little weird on the Fender, but I usually take the neck off of each and every one I buy to check for homemade shims and stuff like that. But I couldn't find my american hex keys.
    It does look a little to the side...

    There's nothing I like more than a natural-finish dark wood, and that Ibby has me drooling!

    These rival any Warwick for a fraction of the price.

    Oh boy. I was so gonna sell this bass. But I can't.
    Adjusted the twin truss rods just now. Bridge is bottomed out and the action really low.
    This thing plays like a dream and just sounds like no other bass ever can or will. Let's keep the old girl.

    Happy with the Phil Jones combo? Too bad they don‘t have a tilt back option.

    The Phil Jones is excellent for practicing, and in a small room with wooden floor can even keep up with a drummer.
    PJB cabs use acoustic coupling of floors and walls to make them sound bigger.
    Sadly this also means that it relies on that. If you put the combo on your table in the middle of the room all the bottom end is gone.
