Jesus Lowell, that is a thing of beauty! I heard all about it from Pete and wished I could have seen it there. Congrats dude! [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

I bagged on Lowell about blowing his whole Pakistani Bagpipe and kilt budget on that thing. [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif] [smilie=fun_84.gif]

What is that suave looking black and gold bass there next to it?

It took a bit of time, but I'm really really digging this bass now...it's just perfect. So simple, so light, and the tone is perfect with no tweaking required.

Why doesn't this design get more attention?

I am now a proud owner of the mentioned Mike's bass. It's a gem!

Great! Man, I'm glad both my recent departures ended up here in the hands of Badasses! That Lull was especially tough to let go of, but I replaced it with a Lull PJ5...just a tiny little added tonal variance, but essentially the same bass.

Have you replaced the pickups in your current PJ5 to Delanos as well?
Btw, I'm using the original basslines currently.

No, still have the stock Basslines in my PJ5. Sure miss that Delano, though...it sounded really nice.

I really like the Nordstrand NP-5 pickup sets, and have been using them on my VRB-P5 models. Here's one I shipped out to Chicago the middle of last year

sound wise this was impossible to discern from my '65 until I played on the low B-string, and even then the B still had that P character to it

all the best,

p.s. you'll soon see a new Regenerate Guitar Works listing in the BAD ASS DEALERS section where I'll highlight new custom build progress images and an occasional stock inventory build offered for sale

This probably isn't the sort of Precision you were talking about. It's a Regenerate Guitar Works Heritage Series '55 P. I also have an American Standard 5 string P. It's kinda heavy but sounds real good.
