Hi guys! So i've got a new (used) bass! It's a Vintage (the brand, it's not that old) v1004SP. I traded this for a 5 string dean that i never really got along with. less strings=more better for me. The guy who i traded with is a friend of mine and he lives in the same city so i dropped by yesterday, played on this bass, liked it a lot, he liked mine and the trade was done. Now, Specs (copied from vintage's website)! Body: Mahogany Wings Top: Spalted maple Neck: 5-Ply Thru-Neck Fingerboard: Rosewood Scale: 34"/864mm Frets: 24 Neck Inlays: Pearloid Dot Tuners: Wilkinson® WJB150 Bridge: Adjustable/ Raised Tail Pickups: Wilkinson® Single Coil x 1/ Double Coil x 1 (M) WJBE900 (B) WSME4 Hardware: Gold Controls: 1 x Volume/ 1 x Balance/ Active Treble/ Active Bass and now: Pics! This is my first instrument with a spalted maple top and dayumn, that shit looks good man! The previous owner took pretty good care of it and it's set up for drop C, which is the tuning i play in, so that's nice. The guitar feels like it's pretty good quality, hardware is in good condition and works as it should. The wilkinson pickups sound absolutely righteous. Especially on the bridge pickup it has this grind that i'm looking for. This will be used in band context as our bass player doesn't have a bass anymore and hasn't got money to buy one (i know, bass players...) so we'll find out shortly how well this stands up to our abuse, as we are a pretty agressive band. Well, that's all folks! Now if you'll excuse me, i'm gonna feast my eyes on this spalted top one more time.
