are they Lace Alumatone pickups in the one on the left? 

Whats the red one - the PG is different to a normal P bass though it looks familiar. 
Which is your main player? 
Why am I asking so many questions?

-They are Joe Bardens. 

-Its a bitsa with a Status jazz neck and Hipshots. I got the body cheap on ebay, most probably a Jack and Danny one but I am not sure tbh

- mainly the two Modulus (when gigging was still a thing) but it really depends on the need. The P bass is a lockdown thing so havent been out of the house yet. 

-Knowledge is power. 😄

What is the MG in the middle? Body like Quantum, but neck like VJ5, so what is that?

That jazz looks lovely 

It is really good - I had been thinking of building one from parts and I happened to walk into a shop which had it hanging on the wall there.

Status Graphite neck, Warmoth body, Hipshot tuners, Badass bridge, John East J-Retro preamp, and not sure what pickups.

I had its partnering fretless too, but I sold that on, as I only need one fretless.

I think you quoted the wrong person but it’s all gravy - my first bass was a status (!) so I like them

I quoted your question about @ordep's post "Whats the red one - the PG is different to a normal P bass though it looks familiar." - the red one looks like it's got a Status Graphite neck on it. 🙂

I certainly used to own a Modulus VJ but I can’t remember much about it now. 

Cost me just £650 back when I bought it 🤦‍♂️

perhaps this will help you remember? 😀

 

Yeah I can still remember when flea basses use to sell used for less than a grand.

That definitely looks like he same one I had. 

At the same time I had a black Flea that I really should have kept. It had a pair of Lane Poor pickups, a boost switch and a funky inlay of Randy Hope-Taylor at the 12th fret!

Here are a few,

of them all the two stand out ones the dark wal in the middle iv had since the 80s and nearly worn it out so that is retired and the red 83 G&L L2000 is the only thing i have found to replace it in terms of power and the sound that i use, both are as good as each other for the same reason.  The very early ( first few months) thumb bass sounds great very clean sound but just cant play it live, i cant take my eyes of the fret board everything feels too fat left by a few fretts, and just cant get use to it, the green 6 string XB600 washburn for what i paid is a real surprise, such a great sound low action and nice fast slim neck for me is bang on, all my 6 string fretted stuff is done on that, i would put that per sound against anything, sometimes things just work at any price, this one for me is my proof, each to their own and all that 🙂 IMG_1360.jpg.b0c48f5183991828e3e5a65c801cc3eb.jpg

Is the Spector gone?

Yeah. Didn’t want to sell it really...but I sat with that and the Sadowsky and made a snap decision. Lasted about 24 hours on the marketplace so I didn’t have chance to change my mind 😂
