I have one of these. Great aren’t they ?

Yes, it feels great. Mind you, I am upgrading from a £140 Harley Benton JB.  

The Fender weighs about 4% of the HB.

Its got flats on it; never used ‘em before. Lovely.

Props to the GAS - a concept (well the label at least) that I learnt on this forum.

I’ve never played a fretless but that looks magnificent 

Don’t even think about it (bidding I mean)!

(Only joking! Not so sure if I will go for it but might be good to discuss here so we don’t end bidding against each other...)

I've had this for just under ten years now - its a modified "Cowpoke" (Precision Special) bass. The "Cowpokes" were a bit of an oddity in the Fender catalogue - they were only available  for a couple of years in the mid-nineties and originally came with Kubicki electronics. They were available in white, red and sunburst finishes, but the brave soul who owned the bass before me, stripped it down to a natural finish, which I think looks great. I'm not a huge fan of active pickups, so I sold the electrics to a charming chap on BC and installed Entwistles - my favourites. I got a wiring loom from the mighty Kiogon and plumbed in a three way selector switch as I find pick-up blending knobs a bit finicky to use - especially in the middle of a gig.  I put a Badass bridge on because of Geddy Lee...

The scratchplate was made for me by Jack at Tiny Tone. I know 4ply tort is a bit "marmite", but a natural bass and a tort plate is a killer combination in my booklet. It'll be my first choice of instrument when gigs start again (pleasepleaseplease) in late June.
