  1. That's a lovely pair, if you don't mind me saying 😄. I had a fretless Mouse for a few years and often wondered what a fretted one would sound like. Can't find any fretted demos on youtube. Would be interesting to hear some sound clips if you can find a way of posting a short demo.
  2. Here's a link to Fender catalogues going back to 2004 plus some earlier vintage ones. Might be a worth a look. https://guitar-compare.com/catalogs/fender-catalogs/ Reggaebass's suggestion of nail polish is a good one, I've used that for small dings before and there's a massive range of colours out there to play around with.
  3. Have you already seen this one? https://support.fender.com/hc/en-us/articles/214034783-Instrument-Finish-Color-Chart
  4. If you like the Hofner vibe but not the Beatle bass shape then take a look at the Club. Cool little bass, I love mine.
  5. Freq charts for the EBMM 2-band EQ below for info. Not having a centre detent or 'flat' position can be a bit confusing. I found these charts really helpful in understanding what level of cut or boost was going on at various settings of the bass and treble controls.

    These are better, from the US though - https://reverb.com/item/19640053-lt-0484-000-10-clay-vintage-clone-1-4-inlay-dots-fret-markers-for-guitar

    Allparts do a 'vintage clone' dot inlay, although they don't look right to me: https://www.allparts.uk.com/products/fingerboard-inlay-dots-vintage-clone-1-4-inch-face-10-pcs-and-3-32-inch-side-dots-10-pcs
  8. +1 I recently did this with one of mine and was pleasantly surprised with how it evened up the string to string balance and opened up the tone.
  9. Sorry to be the one to ask 'that' question but what does it weigh? An accurate weight please if poss (not bathroom scales). Thanks
  10. This is worth a quick read. It's about guitar frets but the same applies to bass - https://www.seymourduncan.com/blog/latest-updates/fret-sizes-and-materials
  11. There's an MIJ '51 reissue on FB marketplace here (not mine, just came across it) - https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/225905075216407
  12. In the diagram above, follow the orange line from the pickups and you can see it connects with one terminal of the lower battery. This taps off a 9V feed to the pickups. The second battery is connected in series to the lower battery and delivers the full 18V (9V+9V) to the preamp.
