BTB 845 33" scale bass plugged into a temporary, just-moved rig consisting of a Hotone Heart Attack and a Mesa 1x12 Recto cabinet...

The second picture is my current DarkGlass MicroTubes 900 v2 with custom Mesa/Boogie 2x10 ultra-lite cabinet.

The last picture is my Ibanez EHB 1505 multi scale and my Kurzweil K2000 behind.

I recently had the opportunity to capture my two biggest passions in one smug/show-off -ish photo!
This is me with my beloved 1965 Ford Mustang V8 and my Dingwall NG3-5 Metalflake Aquamarine dream bass!

Never thought that it would be a possibility for me to own either one of these beautiful creations, but somehow I managed to make a living for myself that allowed me to purchase these things.
A teacher once told me that "You just don't have what it takes to complete high school. You might as well drop out!". I felt like a failure for years after that, but I'm pretty sure I make a better living today than he ever did, so...

I did a NBD-thread when I got the bass. There's better pictures of it there: NBD: Dingwall NG3-5

Recently installed Fishman Fluence modern bass in my SRC6 and changed out the cheap black plastic knobs for hardware-matching cosmo black ones

Next thing I'm doing to it is probably sanding the "walnut" finish off and staining it black or perhaps black, then sand that back some, and put in some purple :banana:

I thought about posting a cheeky pic of my 8-string guitar that is currently tuned to D1 LOL but no...

Those SRC's are so cool and you made a big improvement over those weird plastic knobs. They've used those for ages and they're so cheap looking!

How do you like the Fluences in it?

Large improvement over the EMG HZs that were in it before. The switch and push/pull pot gives me a lot of sounds, and tbh if used as a drop-tuned baritone guitar it sounds pretty f'ing brutal imo lol

The "hifi"/scooped voices are pretty much unusable in that context, though; you literally hear clicks from touching pick to string >_>

But yeah, I'm probably putting a set of 5-string Fluences in my Stiletto Studio 5 that also has EMG HZs

Dude one day when I get some money again I’m gonna try some of Ibanez middle price stuff and see how it is dude I played one of those prestige the other day it wasn’t bad
These are both Premium and they are phenomenal in playability and sound. I actually have never played a Prestige bass (lots of Prestige guitars and some JCustoms) before actually. Honestly the Premium basses are really really good. Having just found the SR1200 for a ridiculously good price I couldn't pass it up and had to buy it.

Don’t think I ever posted my LTD Surveyor 414. I got it used back in February, it’s a 2009 and in pretty great shape minus one little ding. Here’s a few shots of it the day I got it when it was dirty and missing the concentric knob, and one from a few weekends ago with my MetallicA tribute MotorbreatH. 094B24BF-3169-4A93-B3A3-9746E6D43BC0.jpeg 9C5B750E-5E84-43AB-981C-9DB828F2930B.jpeg B15F09D6-132F-4DA3-A948-9789F27AC956.jpeg FD77AAAE-2ED6-4BFD-8085-C113CFE32A4D.jpeg
