Admittedly, the settee is missing...

L-R 2002ish Fender Japan Pink Paisley modded with T-bird pickups, 1966 Fender Jazz, 1965 Meazzi Hollywood Jupiter, 1964 Maton Ibis, 1964 Epiphone Embassy Deluxe, 1964 Gibson Thunderbird (Ashdown Little Stubby prototype - bought here on BC, Dynacord Bass-King, Trace Elliot ELF 2x8 cabs - have the head, too), Padalka Ennea Corvus, Padalka Ennea HGGS 5 string multi-scale.

Have gigged them all - with the exception on the Maton (yet) as it was a pandemic acquisition.

I had that Paisley T-Bird as my computer wallpaper for years - can’t believe it’s yours!

WOW! Small world. I did the mod in maybe 2004 or around there. I actually had two of the paisley basses. I bought one right when they first came out and then the second after about a year - some stores pretty much couldn't give them away (the finish is a love it or hate it thing) and I got the second one for, I think, $275 - brand new. I modded that one but then liked it so much I just sold the stock one. Have gigged it a lot.

You could’ve gone vertical, with the Wing horizontal on the foreground. More effort required, could do better (as my school reports often said) 😆.

 

Still a nice, eclectic collection, though.

Fender Roscoe Beck 4 candy apple red, Wal MK3 walnut top, Ken Smith Elite 5 ebony top, Fodera Emperor Deluxe Custom 5, Wal Mk3 5 spalted top, Schack carbon V.

I had an RB4 exactly the same as your one. Fantastic sounding bass, none better IMO. If the nut width had been more P like, I’d still have it I reckon.

Thank you. It's an old Squire Jazz, Plays really nicely but the pickups are a bit weak. That's my next project. Might get a fretless neck for it too.  Bought it for £70 a few years back.
