  1. Beautiful, the reverse headstock aside. It looks fine, it just annoys me they didn't bother properly mirroring the whole bass ๐Ÿ™ƒ Is this the one that was briefly owned by Rob bonin-in-the-boneyard?
  2. I work as an environmental and geotechnical field engineer for a mid-size consultancy bureau here in the Netherlands. I'm a bachelor in environmental sciences, and through various internships during my studies, ended up specializing in soil and groundwater. I started as a consultant, but gradually discovered the office isn't the right place for me so now I spend my workdays outdoors for most of the time. My work mainly includes conducting soil surveys (by manually drilling into the soil with a hand auger and taking samples of layers, placing monitoring wells and sampling the groundwater) and supervising soil remediation projects. Our company's core business, however, is in soil mechanics and foundation engineering. For this, we have several CPT trucks (cone penetration testing) for testing the bearing capacity of soils for up to 60 metres deep. I can operate these as well, but unfortunately I don't have a truck driving license! I have just taken on a new job opportunity at my company though, and will start working as a project manager for geotechnical and geomonitoring projects somewhere in May.
  3. It's usually recommended to loosen tension on all the strings when adjusting the truss rod anyway ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Danelectro has a lefty Longhorn that's really good fun, and Eastwood built lefty Hi-Flyer basses (Mosrite copy) that are pretty decent. If hollow or semi-hollow is an option too, I'd look at Hรถfner, Hagstrom (Viking Bass) and possibly that new Schecter that's up on Andertons' site: https://www.andertons.co.uk/bass-dept/bass-guitars/left-handed-bass-guitars/schecter-bass-banshee-bass-owht-lh
  5. Awesome, and very tempting! ๐Ÿ˜ซ Does it have a pickup?
  6. Pretty, and I like the Kubicki-like drop D section! Is there a similar switch to lock the lowest string in E? Looks like you can raise a piece of nut behind a fret? Pretty cool!
  7. I played a lefty headless Schack with a graphite neck once, and was struck by how heavy it was! I liked the tone and feel, the neck was wide and thin and really comfortable to my hands.
  8. The Roadster always came without pickguard but, as far as I know, never as a factory fretless for lefties. This is definitely a defretted RS924, the factory fretless was the RS940 and can easily be told apart from the 924 by the lack of fretlines and by tiny off-center dots instead of the regular big dots on the fingerboard. Still a very nice bass in incredibly good condition!
  9. Finally a pickup configuration that matches his old Gibsons ๐Ÿ˜›
  10. That does ring a bell! Thanks for the heads-up ๐Ÿ˜€
  11. Same! The founder of Rickenbacker was mr Adolph Rickenbacker ๐Ÿ˜› And to be really specific, the 4000 series basses were developed after Adolph sold his brand to mr Francis C. Hall (current owner John Hall's father I suppose).
  12. Same here, I couldn't be happier! I currently own: 1. Status Graphite S2 Classic bolt-on 5-string headless; 2. Status Graphite S2 Classic bolt-on 4-string headless; 3. Warwick Streamer LX5; 4. Ellio Martina Forza 5-string; 5. Fender MIJ 1975 Jazz Bass reissue with some killer mods; 6. Ibanez MC924 (1981); 7. Ibanez MC924 (1983, my YOB bass!); 8. Ibanez RS924; 9. Ibanez ATK305. And then there's a weird 2-string fretless Longbow and an acoustic fretless Cort NTL-B, but together with the ATK these don't get any use at all. The two Statii are the ones I play most frequently, though the Martina is the One Bass that I will never sell.
  13. The change went into effect on November 26, so prior to that date it still needed a certificate.
