  1. I remember this picture. I haven’t see this gorgeous lady yet but i will check here in France. I am a fretless player, i understand your feeling Good luck with the Search Cheers
  2. Beautiful Beast ! I am looking for a fretted 5. What is its weight ? Has it a Warwick case ?
  3. With pickguard Classy with this white pick
  4. Sad story, i am sorry for Scott. A friend of mine plays a Molloon PB. Cool instrument I will checked shops here in France and websites. Here a clip of this Silver Molloon
  5. Few years ago, i tried Labella white nylon 60-115. Great ! I play them on a Takamine B10 and a solid body also. My advice would be to try them on your acoustic
  6. Could you give the details (year, name, finish) for these basses please ? Thanks groovers !
  7. 3 JB : A mexican, an american, an asian. Both great instruments !
  8. Few years ago i "discovered" halfrounds or semi-flat rounds. Two worlds in one set : you protect your fingerboard but you keep the singing Mwah. I use them on my old fretless JB. I keep flatwounds for my fretted PB. d'Addario strings are cheap and excellent but they have coloured balls end Others brands offer halfrounds/semi-flats strings, you choose. Hope it helps Keep the groove
  9. My advice would be to get a Roadworn Precision and a second hand Roadworn JB neck. Or a full Roadworn JB. They are cheap and excellent instruments. You switch the necks and you can play a Precision with a delicious slim JB neck I own a 62 JB and a Fiesta Red Roadworn Precision. Sometimes i switch and have the P sound without changing my way of playing (i am a JB addict). Otherwise you can get this custom-shop postmodern. P with a JB neck
  10. For me, it looks like a 74-75. With this cloudy look that have the tortoise picks at this period. After 1974, black pick became standard and tortoise was a special order. A 68 tortoise looks like this (very late 60s) i would say. https://www.talkbass.com/threads/1968-fender-precision-bass-w-case.1076429/ https://en.audiofanzine.com/electric-fretted-bass/fender/Precision-1968/medias/pictures/a.play,m.350362.html I own a late 1967 Precision (Dec 67) and my pick is identical to these 68 ones. I hope it helps. [URL=https://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=779834image197.jpg][IMG]https://img4.hostingpics.net/thumbs/mini_779834image197.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  11. Yes completly. Till the late 60s, the decal was applied on top of the clear coat as Leo F. did. Your "Jaco" is a 62 reissue so it is period correct. I own several reissues, 62' JB and a 63' PB, it is the same thing. Take care of your headstock Check this https://books.google.fr/books?id=rC2X0BiF2ZMC&pg=PA1999-IA6&lpg=PA1999-IA6&dq=the+bass+decal+was+applied+on+top+of+the+clear+coat+as+Leo+fender&source=bl&ots=eam4c8EWj1&sig=lxFTvpVAFl3nmUV8Ffql-x6ZE0I&hl=fr&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjNs6CgyefOAhVjIJoKHTdRA7oQ6AEIHDAA#v=onepage&q=the%20bass%20decal%20was%20applied%20on%20top%20of%20the%20clear%20coat%20as%20Leo%20fender&f=false
  12. Standart length/scale fits all PB, JB style instruments. No need to buy something else in your case. Super Long scale are for special instruments : strings through body, or electro-acoustics (Takamine B10), or longer diapason basses. I think you reach the end of your search May the groove be with you
  13. As you are playing Labella 45-95, if you want to find a known feeling, i think it is better to choose 60-115. The strings are bigger (especially 115 E string) but the tension can compared to 45-105 standart rounds or 45-95 standart flats. Bigger strings also give warmer, darker notes. I am fond of that
