Fully Stock, Black Soundgear SRX300

This isn't mine but it's the same thing (mine is in better condition)



I'm currently saving for Ibanez SR505 (5 string) or something similar.

My main bass in my hardcore band is a Squier VM 70's Jazz with Seymore Duncan Quarter Pounder pickups. I have it strung with a custom set of d'Addario Pro Steels in guages .050, .070, .90 and .120 and tuned to drop C.

My church bass is a Copley six-string that I got on Craigslist for $100. It's all stock, but I may be doing some mods on it soon.

OK I'm doing this blind from work copying and pasting from threads on other forums where I can't see the pics as they're all blocked at work, ..... so HOPEFULLY.......

self made 5 string fanned fret.......



and a self made 4 with regular straight frets....





I've only played the 4 about twice since I finished the 5.....

I'm thinking I may make another (fretless) neck for the 4

I also have a 4 string acoustic I built a LONG time ago..... plays nice but looks really rough!!

This is my EB-3 copy--a MIJ 70's bass from the Matsumoku factory.

Light, and lots of fun to play.
Just last Sunday I was playing this during the service (when there was music that is--I wasn't jamming while listening to the sermon...)

There's a thread on this somewhere... I'll merge later tonight/tomorrow when I have time.

Anyway, my basses (in rough frequency of how often I use them):

'76 Fender Musicmaster
custom made p-bass - modeled after a '62 with a Fralin pickup
mid 70s neck through Mann p-bass, with an active EMG pickup and brass nut
Peavey T-20

And if all goes as planed, I will soon have a Fralin loaded Mexican Fender jazz bass with a nice Warmoth neck and a Badass II bridge

Why has the custom-made p not shown up at my house yet? I've been waiting.

I have a beautiful Brice Z5 from Rondo. It's the best bass I've ever owned. I have to say it's worth 3x the price without a doubt. Pictures/info here: Brice Z5 Nat at RondoMusic.com. Don't drool.
