    In reviewing the forum, I don't see a gratuitous picture thread showing your bass. So, I'm creating one. Post 'em if you got 'em. You can thank me later. :)

    The ol' pbass, an American Special from 2013 I think. I went through a lot of basses trying to find one that brought the thump for a 50's-90's cover band project, and this one reigned supreme above all others. The bass is sitting in front of my awesome practice amp, a Fender Bassman 250. I bought the amp used at around the same time. It had a pair of buzzy speakers in it so I replaced them with a pair of Eminence Basslite S2010 speakers. It's a great sounding little amp.

    My live rig was the same pbass through an Ampeg PF800 amp into a GK410 NEO cabinet. For recording I generally plug straight into my interface. I haven't really figured out how to record bass through and amp yet and the sims do a great job.

    your looking at a nice pair of 1983 Precision Élite II Basses. mine on the right (with the mirror pickguard - of course) and my friend's on the left with the maple neck - and a few missing knobs.
    dual stock Pickups and great thunderous tones
    what a sweet underrated Bass - the '80's had some strange ones for sure
    his still has the fine tuner thumb screws in the massive bridge assembly

    I love a G.P.T. so I'll thank you now.

    Home playing only these days. The Trace Elliott BLX 150 doesn't get much use now I've got the wonderful PJB Double 4. The little PJB Bass Buddy is a useful headphone amp. With my 96 US Standard P Bass bought new - the first good bass I had and about all I use now.

    Here's my 97 Noel Redding Signature CIJ Jazz.

    And my enormous sounding but ergonomically challenged Hohner.

    Finally a work long in progress: off next month for finishing in white blonde.

    My current rig looks straight out of the garage, but it sounds good. '82 Bassman 135, Peavey 1 x 15", and SWR Workingman 2 x 10". It all weighs a ton. The guitars are both lightweight though.

    Cheapo-rig. Enough for now as I have recently converted to the bass camp.
    MarkBass250, Squier P-Bass, 2x Dynacord PA Spk, Little dirt from a BigMuffBass on dry setting not to lose bottom end.
    Thanks for help finding may way. I’m quite happy for now - slowly gassing for something a little nicer though:)

    I wonder - this thread may not be the best to help you suppress the GAS???

    My one & only. It's ancient. A long ago gift from an old friend. He knew his way around a bass -- I have no clue. I brought it in to a music store in the early 90's looking for help with strings, was told it was a "dog" & was about laughed out of the place. So for the amusement of all:

    My last bass gig was December 2019 and I've decided to call it a day, for now at least. I sold my Markbass head and cab and a Markbass practice amp earlier this year.

    I did, however, keep the basses. Amps can be replaced easily (modern solid state ones at least) but finding a great bass is not as easy.

    This is my favourite. A Fender Custom Shop Precision. I think it was a custom order by the original owner. It has a very lightweight Ash body (bass weighs 8.7lb) with transparent white finish and a rosewood board. It currently has La Bella flatwounds and sounds glorious.

    I own a few basses, and more than one bass amp, but this rig here is my favorite.

    2003 Fender (MIM) Standard Precision Bass, and a 2011 Ampeg BA-110.

    So good together.

    :)

    The amp rocks back onto its 40 degree tilt-back cabinet position, if you like.

    I'm not really a bass player. I got this for Christmas in 2001, after our church sent out a message asking for someone to play the bass. They never got back to me, and now, nearly 20 years later, they have grown large enough to have several well-experienced bassists.

    I was ushering at the time, but after being all but elbowed and run over on 9/16, I decided I should serve in some other capacity.

    It was made in Mexica circa 2000. It's the only Fender Precision Bass I have ever seen with Strat-style knobs.
