Had the new J Bass in at MSGM yesterday and was rather blown away by Brian's stunning hand-built Surf Green tube combo.
A rather pretty amp, to say the least...

How's the Wal going, now you've had it for a while? It looks as good as ever!

Thanks. Cant seem to work out why the pics arent as sharp but.

It is still as a hold of me as the day i recieved it. She has a lot of fine variations. None of my other basses sounds quiet like the Wal that is for sure.

The preamp is definitely different. It has what seems an endless array of options. Kind if like a safe with so many possible combinations.

The down side is that i need too note where the settings are in order to find it again. The only preamp ive ever used that is very precise. Could not do it without the markings unlike traditional basses that are more "there abouts" in regard to the pot locations

Yay!
Well - here's the one I nearly sold but didnt thank heck... Its a CIJ 57 Reissue with GZR Emgs, a Hipshot Bridge, a detuner and a gold plate
Image

One I made:
Allparts Telebass neck. It's fat... I mean it is HUUUGE. It's like playing a baseball bat..., Fender Duff McKagan Alder body, Hipshot Kickass bridge, EMGx pickups in the pic but getting wired in a more traditional way now with passive handwored pups by Aphekgreg...
Image

Music Swap Shop rescue bass. It was in a bad way in the Music Swap Shop (Warmoth build) and with some tweaking it's now a weapon. Lined fretless, SD Pups, Hipshot A Style - sexy smooth ebony fingerboard
Image

Warwick Corvette $$ Pro. German made - stock standard
Image

I've got a Chinese Fender Jazz forgery as well which really isnt bad! But not with showing here :-)
Fender CIJ 57RI P Bass, Warmoth Fretless PJ Bass, Bitsa Frankenbass PJ, Warwick $$ & 75' Fender Jazz Reissue.

Markbass LM Big Bang, GK MB500, Schroeder 1210pl, Eden EX112, Boss LMB-3, SGFX Beta, EMG GZR, Boss blah blah blah

Your Majesty! :notworthy: May I ask what's the neck feel like? and nut width?
I just love wal sound so much even before I start to play bass.

Neck feels thin med thin c profile. Not sure on exact specs. With a very smooth feel across the length. Jazz nut at 42mm spacing at the nut :)

Sorry for being a nag, but what do you mean by jazz nut at 42mm spacing at the nut? 42mm nut width is a p bass nut right?
From my research, there are 3 different answers, 40mm 42mm and 1. 5/8 inches which is around 41mm. will you measure it when you got a chance please? A million thanks :thumbup:
