Whilst I was off line ....

OK I was off line for some long time, but not like I was dead.

The ax with the Moses neck has no piezos ... but is wickit
cool anywho. Also, the SR4 HH is unavailable with piezos.
The rest are all piezo-equipt ... my current madness thing.

I got the Moses neck used from BassNW, all ready to just
bolt up and rock out. The orange SR5 is Ms Diva's current
fave, her 'baby'. The black SR4, and a certain Warwick on
hand here, are the absolute best sounding fretted basses I
have ever played ... not that my own taste in 'best' is even
vaguely useful data to most other players [smilie=cool-smiley-027.gif] The Boingo
is a kinda rare find: single PU + piezo bridge + blank plank.

BTW, the torty PG on the SR4 is the same one I had on my
SR30th for while, so the SR30th is back to black PG-wise.
I just felt the black & tort would be hawt, so I swapt them
and ... yowza ! The SR4HH came with the torty. The PU's
have little neodymium magnet disks on some of the pole
slugs, so it's more like dual reverse-P PU's than dual hum
buggers. The disks hold tight just by magnetism, and add
serious boost to individual slugs. They also fuggwid your
intonation and cause some slightly chorus-echo effect due
to the power of the magnetic drag on the front PU. If you
boost only the rear PU, you don't get the chorus echo cuz
string near the bridge is less subject to magnetic drag,
but you still get the boost. Frinstintz, even tho a single H
SR4 has no single-coil switch, you can just boost only the
row of poles nearest the bridge to emulate a single coil.
That is so close to the bridge that "odd" effects are not
usually evident [de[endiong on your PU height, string
guage/tension, plaing style, eras, rig, yadda yadda.

New basses are red. Used basses are black.

You've been busy [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

The axe with the Moses neck is a Sterling HS, yes? I remember an old post of yours extolling the virtues of a fretless HS. Is this it? And If you bought the Moses neck, what happened to the neck it came with? Just curious cause I think I want a fretless Sterling HS or HH (I have a fretless Sterling H) but I just not as adventurous (read: I'm a cheapskate) as you gear swapping/hording maniacs. I thinking the easiest way for me to do this is to get a fretted HS and swap necks.

You have excellent recall ... but ... my FL HS sterling is still intact.

This one WAS it's fretted twin. So ... if you want a FRETTED maple
FB Sterling neck, thaz the leftover neck I can offer.
