Hail fellow Graphite heads!  This is my main workhorse. Interestingly, this is called a “Stealth 2” (not a Stealth, and not an S2) and was made in 2000.  One piece graphite moulding.  Originally had front and side leds but asked Rob at Status to swap them out last year for the newer wraparound leds. It’s also had custom Roman numeral inlays fitted. I switch all the hardware between a black set and this gold set when I get the whim.

Funnily enough, that's pretty much my spec were I to ever get one. I'd go chrome and get the B2 circuit as I prefer the 2 band eq and Mids in my Buzzard rather than the 303 board. 

I'd never seen a stealth with roman numerals before though. Top work squire!!

Probably should have posted this a while back, but it is a fantastic bass and i have @Wolverinebass to thank for giving m the final nudge, he knew i wanted it and needed it when it came up second hand!

Stealth, upgrade to 302 preamp whoever had it made first - only gripe - I want wrap around LED’s!

My three,

 

The S2 Classic arrived this week, the Energy Matrix arrived a few months back and is off to @Andyjr1515 for a face lift as soon as this darned lock down thing is lifted.

The S3000 was sold a few years back, it was not a good Status it was extremely heavy, rather battered and I found it didn't sit in a mix very well, not sure why, it may have had the electrics messed about with I guess because the Energy Matrix has the same JJ pickups and I assume the same pre amp.

The blue carpet has also long since been disposed of!!

I'd really like a headless 5-string.

I have a hankering to have a bass finished in duotone blue/black.

I think it's what they call Midnight Blue, which has a bit of sparkle to it too.

The person who had it before fitted a Zero-Mod thumbrest, which is only "zero-mod" if the instrument already had two holes in it for a pickguard.

As it is, the two holes are the white dots you can see in the picture and they need tidying up.

Then I got to thinking about a refin and thought duotone/flip-flop/chameleon/iridescent paint might look good; pretty much replicating and enhancing the shadow effect in the photo...

I’d finish everything with chameleon paint jobs or at the very least a pearlescent if I was going to get a paint job done.

I seem to remember that the specs are slightly different to a standard CS Sig? Or am I thinking about someone else’s bass?

It’s a stock CW Sig other than the wraparounds and Hipshot Ultralite tuners that I specified.

Ah, maybe it was the tuners you mentioned somewhere. It looks lovely. Enjoy 👍

Thanks. The CW sig of course differs from the S2 Classic with different pickup positions, preamp and jack socket location.
