You have truly excellent taste in pickguards.
I especially love the white jazz with yellow PG, block n bound neck. Damn sexy.

Also I think your Mk2 body shape design is extremely elegant.

Thanks.

For the white Jazz I've made several variations of pickguards but I like the yellow one the most.
The first version I made.

And the second one.

New bass in the building, Revelation bass VI.
Image
Amazing how they can make an instrument with this build quality for this little money, faultless paint (polish) job, good finished pickguard and properly setup straight from the box.
Of course I had to do some tweaks or it won't feel like it's mine, replaced the chrome pickguard screws with black ones, lowered the nut and did an even better setup.
Also put some foam between the bridge and the strings, they were resonating irritatingly without this.

The bass looks great! Do you have experience knowing how the Revelation Bass VI compares to the comparable Eastwood VI?

Put new knobs on the Bass VI.

Didn't like the looks of the stock ones.

why did you put a mute behind the bridge? Does it make a tonal difference ?

The strings were irritatingly resonating there, now they don't.

Restored the Westone a bit to its original glory, put in a P and a J pickup again, the J already wasn't stock I put this one in over 30 years ago.

Also made a new glam-shot of the Revelation with the new knobs.

Newest member to the herd, Sire Marcus Miller P7 5 string.
This is the second one Thomann sent me, I had to return the first one due to a non working P pickup and scratching preamp pots.

Most pictures are gone!! PostImage has domain name issues.
Will try to re-up them this weekend, can't edit my older posts so maybe in a new topic to keep everything clean.
