    don't have it yet, but it's ordered:
    Peavey Grind NTB 6

    the picture isn't completely accurate since it has a scallop in the cutaway so there's more room for slapping the high strings.

    I gotta say that i forgot about this picture. I didn't end up buying the grind, but bought a different six string in the same price range.
    it's a made in Korea Santander 6-string, but i found it to be superior to the grind i played in store(click for larger view).

    How's the OLP Sting Ray, Shannon? I love the Sting Ray sound, but i'm not crazy about the EBMM price for an instrument i wouldn't play that much.

    mine isnt the best around, it just suits its job well : be a somewhat useful instrument.
    tis a Hamer Explorer originally a righty, but it has been restrung to suit my freakishly lefty needs.

    ^Doesn't look like either of your "main sevens" are actually sevens at all, unless you have the $30,000 Fender strat prototype. :D

    I unfortunately don't own any basses since I gave mine to my brother, but I've been eying an ESP 5-string bass with EMG pickups.

    IMO and I have played a dozen or two of the olp's. The 4 strings sound better to my ears than the 5's and the natural one's which are the least attractive of the bunch sound the best. I really wanna try the tony levin sig tho which has either active pups or a active pre. Not sure which. :2c: Take it for what it's worth.


    Myabe I should clarify. The 4 strings and naturals have a much cleaner "Vic wooten" type of tone vs. A darker less clear/punchy tone of the 5's and others. :blahblah:


    *EDIT* here's the tony levin sig

    Late to the party, but here's my Bongo. There's a Fernandes J/P in the back of the rack in this pic that I'm going to make into a fretless over the last week of the year.
