Wow! It looks pretty beat up. Probably a good candidate for a re-fin. :hid: [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif] [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

MAN!! Nice work!! BRAVO!! [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif] [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif] [smilie=food-smiley-004.gif]

One quick observation....why the black tuners? I thought the real Wife had chrome or nickel tuners.

The current WIFE has black tuners and the hipshot lever is chrome...

I have alot of pics of the bass and even confirmed a few things with Billy himself.
