That’s a beauty. I like the maple necks, and looks like some pretty honest wear, but some of those heavy relic jobs are pretty convincing.

What year is that?


#342

I picked it up close to 30 years ago if I recall correctly and was a little beaten up then, replaced the neck when I got it so don’t have a clue as lost the serial number!


#343

This reminds me of when my boyfriend was teasing me about wanting to sand the rust off my 30 year old pick-ups. “Most people want that kind of age to show…”


#344

Dug the Studio out of storage, forgot how hot the slash pickups were.

I’ve been playing the hell out of my tiny Kala bass. I had to play my full size last week and it was a chore.
It sounds like an upright and it’s so light.

I slung it over this kid who was fascinated with it.


#346

That looks like it is just right for him…

Looks like a uke, but sounds like an upright? That’s hard to fathom.


#347

If that’s true I need one, sick of dealing with bassists :joy:


#348

It’s true and that’s why I play bass.


#349

Yeah it’s crazy. Not sure how they did it. Really deep. Fun for the Tom waits stuff. Can’t hear anything when it’s not plugged in, though. A bit of an adjustment for the tiny fretboard but it’s a legit instrument.


#350

Beautiful. This looks custom. You’ve got nice stuff.:ok_hand:


#351

Yeah, prior owner completely stripped it back and resprayed and I quite liked the look of it (and the price was right!)


#352

Really want one of these, though which one is hard to know…
