Lol :lol: ... in the case of these two basses I’m happy to forgive being painted. I’ve put TI jazz flats on it but once they’ve settled in I was talking to Pete about sending the orange one down for you guys to have a play with

Very nice, congrats, Pete.

Interesting to see that Tom's using Nordstrand pickups ;).

Tom is a distributor of Delano’s and ETS this is a fairly old demo bass of his.

Bugger now I have to buy a motor bike too? My significant other isn't going to be very happy. She can't complain though because I don't have one yet, but getting lots of them to cover all the options is going to annoy her.

She will of course say that I can only ride one at a time, that their not that different and so why do I need so many. For answers to these questions I'll point her in your direction Pete.

It was definitely a harder decision than I thought it would be.

Toms still building my dream bass so I’m not massively concerned
