    Here's my newest bass (Kala UBass) surrounded by some ukuleles.
    To make sure you know which one the bass is I marked with a cat...

    I guess I'll add some pics of my favorite instrument - this is my BABY!

    Bought it from Bruce Johnson about 12 years ago - it's #30.

    Nice! I've always wondered how those old Ampegs play and sound. I know Boz Burrell used one some in Bad Company, but I don't know which (if any) recordings he played it on.

    Well, Chris, the old Ampegs aren't that great. Bruce Johnson obtained the rights to the aesthetic design and hand makes these - and they play and sound amazing. They are hard to find these days and I'm not even sure if he still makes them, but if you ever see one and can afford it - buy it!

    Steve, is that a REAL '62 Jazz? Or a reissue? It's GORGEOUS!

    It's a US reissue that I bought new in 1988. I didn't mean to mislead, '62 Vintage is just the name of this model. The color is Lake Placid Blue and I only installed the chrome covers for the picture.

    Cool

    I have 5 basses: a Fender 5-string J-bass, a Traben 5-string, a Dano short scale longhorn, a 70s ernie Ball/MusicMan Stingray and this MIJ Fender paisley P-bass:

    Cheers and Twangs!

    I put the covers on my '77 Jazz when I got it in '99, just to try them out. I ended up liking them, so they've been on ever since. I even put a pick-up cover on my 5-string Jazz. The bridge cover wouldn't fit, though. I really like the way they look, and they aren't in my way (too much!). I usually play between the end of the fingerboard and the front pick-up, so that works out well.
