    Well, easy come, easy go. I'm back out of the club. Traded the BO 5 to a fretless stingray 5. One of the nicest playing fretlesses I've had my hands on in years.

    Not out, just on hiatus :) Congrats on the fretless Stingray! They have a unique growl all unto themselves which I love to listen to as well.

    Here's a pic of the two of mine, freshly cleaned and waxed. Left is the '93 BO5, low low serial (000004). 2 pc french walnut body/wenge neck/wenge fretboard. Supposed to have black hardware but somewhere along the line it changed to chrome. Right is the 1997 BO5 lined fretless. Walnut body/wenge neck/ebony fretboard.

    Quick question for you. Do you notice a difference in tone between the plain JAN and the brass JAN? I'm trying to decide whether I'm goin to buy a brass one from Thomann or just source the normal JAN3 from here since my JAN2 has the usual broken post.

    I notice the difference. No doubt. Plus the brass nut just looks cool. My '04, '06 & '07 all got the upgrade. I highly recommend it.

    I think I'll just have to do that :) I'll upgrade my RB Fortress as well.

    I put brass nuts on all my basses, even my acoustic Alien has one. Don't notice any sound difference but they look awesome and will never break.

    Once my $$ Vette gets one, all three of my Warwicks will have a brass nut. My p-bass with Moses neck is gonna get one, too. I noticed more treble in my Streamer STD even before I added the ovangkol top myself.

    Changed strings on my Thumb PS 5 FL to DR Black Beauties.

    Before:

    After:

    Now I'm considering changing the rest of the hardware out for black versions as well...

    What have y'all done with your Thumb lately? Have a set of Sadowsky Black flatwounds on the way for my fretless Thumb. I don't wanna chew up the fretboard running rounds. Bandmates also demand I play the fretless exclusively now as they love the sound as compared to the fretted Thumb.

    Here's mine with Black Beauties and black hardware... What'd you do to shine your bass up like that?
