VERY nice indeed

Here's mine
Luverly!! And I do keep reminding you every time it comes up but... if you ever want to sell it let me know, mine is nice sure but yours has a RACING STRIPE! It must go at least 11% faster.

Mine's rocking Chromes at the moment, I've had good luck with GHS brite flats too for some extra rubbery sound.

Tokai EB-3 2007-ish.

MIK, 32" scale, both pickups after-market.

I don't know what the pickups are but the neck pickup through my MESA Walkabout 15" combo delivers the thumpiest, awesomest thump!

Haussel actually.
I'd never heard of them before but I must say they are great pickups. Big output and clear tones without being too hot (if that makes sense)

Newish one. It's the neck and tuners off my early 90's MIJ Fender P, alder nitro dakota red body from MJT, Fralin standard P pickup, custom CTS etc harness from a guy on talkbass, relic covers and tugbar from Real Life relics. Assembled and set-up by David Searle. The man does a nice job.
Love the feel and the sounds but not bonding at all with the pickguard, it's also from MJT but nowhere near the level of ageing I hoped for. Might try hitting it with shoe polish or maybe go for an aged mint guard if that fails.

Also trying to get up the courage to get a Jaguar mute installed. It's a bit like getting a tattoo.

Hard to photograph the colour, the top pic is closest to real life.

Can't quite let go of my basses. They're kind of addictive.

New mint guard and a buff with Virtuoso cleaner and polish. Now I'm happy with it.
