    I broadened my search a little and found some in other places...Would be happy to share, but if others know a decent AUS supplier that's probably better. Here I found some on Amazon and eBay that...

    Wow! I just checked in with my two favorite places to get speakers and they are sold out of BP102s. Never seen that before. Also out of my next favorites, the Deltalites.

    There is something odd about those "retrobass" speakers. I had never heard of them so I looked at the Eminence website and didn't find them. Also the model number looked weird. This occurred to me...

    +1 on all Simon's points. Definitely talk to PB. It also looks narrower to me than the ad pic. Do the A and D tuners fit? They look awfully close if those are full sized tuning machines.

    I haven't tried the GFS foil pickups. May not be the vibe you're looking for, but I have a set of Lil Punchers (modern vintage) that I like pretty well. With both coils engaged they are a but thicker...

    I just read through your build diary, and found the dot-on-fretless discussion really interesting. I am converting one of my basses (very slowly) to fretless. It's different than yours, because I...

    Ha! Yes that is a weird part of the Bill Lawrence story. In some ways it doesn't matter which company you buy from. Bill Lawrence won't be making your pickups. Sadly, he passed away in 2013. If you...

    I'll be curious how you like the Toneriders. No one I know has them, but they get lots of love on this forum. I don't think I've seen a review of their bass pups, tho, so your review will be welcome...

    I haven't tried the ones on your list, but I have a set of Epic Custom Shop "Black Golds" in a P-bass. They sound great. A little more top-end than the strictly vintage, I think owing to the...
  12. Epiphone Embassy Bass...T-Bird alternative.

    I have mentioned here before that my first bass was an Epiphone Newport. It was a great bass to begin on at age 13 due to the short scale, but as I got older I wanted a "full sized" bass and a...

    This sort of snuck up on me. I found I was playing the builds more than the branded stuff. The last build was very consciously to replace my p-bass which is now 47 years old. Building one like it...

    These pickups are great! For my tastes, I need to the strings to break in a bit. Once they do, I will try to find a way to get a decent recording of them. Basically it's a vintage style, hand wound...

    Me topless would be even less appealing than my playing.

    Yeah there were a number of suggestions for how to get a little more weight into this. Also rejected: fishing weights and truck nuts. ;-)

    Thanks for all the comments. I like the way the finish came out. At least right now before it starts to collect dents ;-)
