If you ordered it from bassclubchicago I think I just
saw yer pink ax in their ebay list, marked "sold". We
poke a lotta fun at my friend for his pink saxaphone
but it really sounds as good as a straight one. Oopz,
I meant to say, a tradtional one :-)

Are you joining a surf band? The clips sound pretty good.

LOL! No, no surf band. Just like the looks and the clips sounded good, too. Plus it's light and reportedly balances well.

Also, I need to get out and hang/jam and get me some more/different work. That bass will get me some attention, no?? [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

That seems like a really cool bass. Dig that range of tones. Please post a review once you get it out and on the town.

Beat me to it.... [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

I saw the TB sale thread, and to me it looks great in that color. And the final price paid would have even fit my budget, with a little fudging...

Bruce, I wanna see pics of this used on a gig. Do not let me down. [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif]

WHOOPS! Forgot to post pics last week.

I gigged the bass this weekend. Like it! It's very....passive sounding. The single coil pickups are surprisingly good and very well balanced. IOW, the bridge pickup has got some balls and it on par, volume-wise, with the other two pickups. Not much noise at all. I like the strat style pickup selector so much I'm thinking of modding the Scheff (again) with some Nordies and a five way rotary switch. Gotta sell that '83 P first, though!

[smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif] Nice. Have a sound clip of it? I dont think Ive ever heard a bass with that pickup config before? Anyhow, glad you're digging it. The photo reminds me of the Fender performer basses.
