  I have always found Jazz basses to be anemic.  While I am not a big fan of TB plus pickups they are sure to give your Jazz a kick in the ass, I say go for it.

    If I were to add another Grabber to the collection I would pop for a early burgundy one like played. No way would I spend 13k on a Grabber just because he played it a bit and signed it.

    While not a Thunderbird that looks great! I love the extended scale on the upper register and the dead simale one pickup one volume layout.

    The finish in real life is rather mundane.  A massive good sounding bass, certainly better than the 80's attempt.  Personally I would have liked to have seen it in a natural mahogany mahogany or cherry finish with a w/b/w pickguard.

5 Who's That has been rehearsing away, here is Naked Eye from our most recent show.

   That is smok'n hot!

    Doesn't matter,  I am being paid good money to play and people love it. For the last four years I was cleaning toilets at night so my family had health care. It literally almost killed me.  I am happy to  play just about anything,  who am I to judge someone's music taste?

That's GC for ya!

9 Hope the link works.  I find myself in a Fleetwood Mac tribute! I am pretty excited about it,  we travel quite a bit but it pays well enough so that I don't need a day job.  The 69 is a great match for the gig as John played a stripped natural 60's Precision before he got his Alembic. I love the Schaller pickup!  Lots of power,  great full tone and lacks the grunt the Dimarzio Model P has. Someone here gave it to me, I can't remember who but thanks!

    I  finally got the Marvel on the bench and it was a real simple fix. The hot on the pickup lead had grounded out due to deteriorated insulation.  Really cool sounding bass with old school thump. It even intonates pretty good. No adjustable truss rod if any. The action is a bit high for me but a upright player picking up this bass in the late 50s would find it perfectly acceptable. I'll post a demo video.
