    The one in my picture is a "Pro Series" variant with "high polish" finish, @TheHardOne :D

    May be the picture, but that poor Thumb is screaming for a cleaning/waxing...

    That was the picture of that bass before I actually bought it (and the only one while it had the Black Beauties on it). Guy I bought it from kinda neglected it. I completely stripped it down and deep cleaned it once it got home. Waxed regularly now. Happy Thumb!

    Unfortunately, I have a growing list of "ones that got away". Everything was perfect about the CS NT 6, except the weight. It was so heavy that my right leg would fall asleep after playing for a short time. I imagine this also contributed to its huge sound.

    @Nachobassman Here's that Thumb from my previous pic as soon as I got home with it. Even took the bridge completely apart and cleaned it with a toothbrush.

    Sorry if I sounded a little bit harsh in my last post, wasn't my intention. I see you did a great caring job on that Thumb, look how it shines! :)

    Thanks, Nacho. I'm learning as I go but I enjoy the process of keeping my Thumbs waxed and clean.

    So I’m guessing that’s a 3 band eq on that one with individual volume for each pickup? I won’t go into the bridge as some love a big beefy bridge but those controls really look meh on that Thumb

    I really like the look of those fat poles, and the knobs should match each other, but I could remedy that bridge. No problem. [emoji1360]

    Are those ugly blue pots photoshoped? They look so fake...

    And, whomever did that should be in jail.

    The "Like" Hardy is for sharing an example of what not to do to a Thumb.......poor bass
