    PBA-4 Marcel's PBG build #9

    Well, I bit the bullet again. PBG build #9, 17th build overall including amps and stuff.
    This PBA-4 will be my 3rd bass build. Have a PBG RCM-4F and a cheap JB build so this will hopefully round out the set

    Not intending anything fancy, just a pretty straight forward build out of the kit plus a PBG bone nut. Modifications to be done later if I feel so inclined. Lets just see what I end up with first before I start throwing extra money at it

    For everyone's info, the JB is incredibly bright and funky, while the RCM-4F on the mini humbucker has wicked low end through my TC Electronics BH250 into a 4x10" cab. Will be interesting to see/hear how this build lands in conparison....

    A slightly off track post,

    So my shed got invaded by the son-in-law, and he rearranged my stuff.... I can't find anything.... And my stash box of sand paper was buried beneath all these other boxes I barely recognized... One of those boxes was full of books, and for a moment my curiosity got the better of me and I looked inside....

    These books are at least 30yo, and some are over 40yo.... all full of guitar TAB and proper sheet music.... I'm glad that box never got thrown out...

    It has the intro to Stairway pretty accurate.... but the bummer is the solo lead break was never included.
