Lovely looking bass, pins, I have always had an affinity for a good sunburst. I had a few bids on your Warwick auction but it was not to be - still, showed the benefit of going with a dollar reserve if you've got the balls to do it. Probably a good thing for me anyway since I have just ordered an Ampeg V4B head. Guess I am a tube ampaholic as I don't really need three tube heads :oops:

Nice!

As for Ricks, they all have maple necks, but very few have maple fretboards, they mostly have African Rosewood (Bubinga) or more recently Caribbean Rosewood (Chechen) due the dwindling supplies of Bubinga.

As for 3tsb, no, they don't have that. The closest thing in that range would be their FireGlo, which is kinda like this:

Fantastic! Now that's a great lineup right there pins.
I've always preferred maple fingerboards just for the look more than any other reason.
That finish is amazing cjj.

Hi all,
Well I'm done. I've got the last addition to my bass whanau. No more basses, no more gas. I am there. Basically I only plan on buying bass related running costs - repairs, maintenance, strings, leads. Small stuff.

So introducing my 2011 Musicman Stingray Classic 5 string with gilded white finish. It's a sexy number and sounds flipping awesome. It's one of only 100 worldwide ow yeah. Here's the deets here http://www.notreble.com/buzz/2011/08/18 ... -stingray/

I'd been eyeing it up for a while once I'd found it even existed and bought it from Ellaways in Brisbane. Then arranged to have it delivered to Melbourne and I picked it up there last weekend.
I just love Stingrays but this is my first one with the two band EQ, no mid control (though hopefully my "EWS bass mid control pedal" can pull off something good there). One of the cool things I like about this bass is the active / passive switch. Interesting to hear the mighty ray's pickup in passive mode... sounds nice, though there's nothing quite like a Fender passive P or J. All in all, having this active / passive option actually means it's quite a versatile bass in the tones you can get out of it.

Anyways, I'll be sure to use it in a Tahuna Breaks gig sometime real soon.

It's said that the 3 knob Rays sound better than the 4 knob ones. I once played a real early Ray with black tapewound strings that was the most awesome tone I have ever come across, unfortunately it was not for sale.

Bass porn catch up is it ? :D ,digging all the pics.

The purple jazz is stunning rikko . ( soft spot for purple basses here,and on the gas list just quietly )

The 5 string collection Cleric has along with mega effects and Ampeg amp would keep me occupied for months maybe even years ! :shock:

And the MM Ray Classic 5 is a great score, nice looking bass ! Nice to have one of only 100 ever built,cool.

but " no more gas " is a bold statement if your like most of us gas addicts :lol: :lol:

Well it's been nearly 2 years since my last family pic.
Have got a couple more and got rid of 1 as well, as well as replacing my big Trace.
Just looking at a new aquisition at the moment so if I get that I will post a new family portrait late next week. :twisted:
