OK, here's my collection. First the Kermits (well, the one on the left is not technically a Kermit but my first build ever and kind of a distant relative):



On the right the latest addition, just finished yesterday. Will be at the Sydney GTG but is not quite set up yet, some fine-tuning to be done (just wanted to get it finished).

Here are the two Mantas (the blue 4 was built for my son) and the one and only Q (with my first commercial build almost complete so expect pics of that in the next few weeks).



I still have the Warwick Thumb 4 and the Sandberg Classic S2 but they're retired.

Regards,
Michael

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:
No dramas.

Well my research said jazz nuts are up to 41mm. But I'm no Luther at all. Doesnt really mean much too me what size to be honest.

I did a rough measure with a leather man but i can certainly try and get more precise measurement if u would like

Something bright and cheery, to contrast with your current goth preference. :hmm
