Thanks! G&L really came through on my order, I only wish I could afford to order a matching fretted!

Cheers,
Chris

Now THAT is a BASS.

And hey, don't fret the small stuff ......

Was just gigging my L2Ke FL laztnite, so I can really relate to where thatzat. I don't have a fretted match for mine, either. I even have multiple versions of some FL basses, while still not having a fretted version to 'accompany' them. I do have some 'mated pairs' but that's really just foolish obsession, cuz I'm really too lazy to carry two full sized basses anyway. My fretted back-up/fall-back is a Berger XL2. Sometimes I'm not too lazy to carry 1.5 basses :-/

New basses are red. Used basses are black.

I'm finding 5's to be less usefull since I took to tuning the 4's to DGCF, but here's some 5's I still muck around on:

`ReBop5.jpg


`Yama-BB5GS.jpg


And one that's no longer on hand, but typical of my taste for the peculiar:

`PBC-GTB355H_Nat5.JPG


Some of the pix are stock/swiped, but they are identical model and finish, etc.
[Sometimes, it's even the dealer's photo of *my* actual bass, before I bought it.]

New basses are red. Used basses are black.
