Congratulations Steve, I know you have had your heart set on this bass for a while, looks absolutely stunning and I can’t wait for my next visit to have a play, if you’ll let me of course.

It looks pretty sweet, congrats! How does it really compare to the green machine?

My Seafoam Green is great, but different. P Bass sized neck, Fralin pickup, so it's a more aggressive tone. Great rock bass, but yet the 71 will be also. Need to put my normal strings back on the Green machine so I can compare them properly.

Well done mate - I was really curious what you were eyeing off. :hmm

Sady (or luckily) not many 1975 fivers for me to lust after!

Nothing looks sexier than a naturally distressed bass.

I've seen some pretty good relic jobs but nothing relic's them better than 40 odd years of gigs :-)

I think luckily... haha, I'm in the same boat. My penchant for fivers saves my bank balance from all this birth-year-bass shenanigans.
