I think it's fair to say this is a heavy relic! :) Picked this up from Andy Travis over the weekend and put it back together with some new wiring for VVT and a push pull capacitor selector. Yet to do a proper setup but sounds great! Is it possible to get a matching knob for a solid shaft rather than knurled?

I'm sure Andy's got a few! Those fretless BB350F are fantastic,I got Andy's white one, I love it 😁

Whilst searching YouTube for decent videos of the BBP34 (or even just one) I came across this old one of James Lomenzo bigging up the laminated quartersawn neck of the BB2024. At one point he says "....most of your tone comes from the neck...." which would be an enjoyable bomb to drop into a TB tonewood squabble ;) but he also makes a connection between neck stability and the immediacy of a note's tone

If I can ever work out how to use my recording setup, I’ll get a little demo of my new BBP uploaded (not sure on the decent aspect though 🤣)

Something I like about this very modest one is that the three basic tones all sound like they're cut from the same cloth – the split is more bassy, the bridge more trebly, obviously, but beyond that the tone is remarkably consistent.

I didn't like my original avatar being turned into the background for our identity-subsuming badges, so I thought if the badge is at the forefront, may as well have a background to match. Five minutes of playing with Snapseed and TA-DAH!

 

edit, another five minute fiddle later:
