The 5-string on the right. It's a 2012 Status S2 Classic bolt-on, previously owned by @Bonin-in-the boneyard. It's a very basic S2 without fancy woods or tone blocks or the like. Just a woven carbon graphite neck paired to a poplar body. It looks black in the picture, but it's actually a metallic anthracite and looks more like dark grey in person.

It's super comfortable, the neck is wide and flat and it has a huge range of tones. It's currently tuned a full step down to ADGCE because I've been using it in a doom metalband, and even with the light strings I have on it (.040-.125) it feels great and still sounds tight, and required zero adjustments to the setup. The neck didn't move at all. It's just brilliant.

My Squier Jaguar SS. The neck is just amazing. Now it has EMG Geezer pickups it has the tone it deserves.

What strings are on your ss? I bet it sounds huge with the geezers through your orange amp. Very cool 😎

D'Addarios... nickel-coated (I think). 100s. Never got on with flatwounds... really don't like the feel. It seems I like to dig in on a cheesegrater and build up serious calluses.

The amp is an Orange Crush 50... it really does it for me. I 've tried my EBS Microbass pre-amp through it, but I always think "why bother?" Doesn't quite have enough puff for rehearsals and the 100 is too damn heavy for me... shame. I'm not a huge fan of drive/distortion, but the gain/blend is infinitely variable... have to dial it down a bit for the geezers.

you may also note that I like my Orange black!
