    New Bass Day
    Well was a few weeks ago, been busy playing, recording with it. Just got around to taking a pic.

    Thundergun. Certainly capable of thunderous lows and sparkly ozone highs. Versatile bass. I'd say it reminds me of a cross between a Pbass and a Musicman.

    Was almost perfect off the rack with a truss rod and saddle adjustment. Filed the nut like 2 or 3 passes each on the top two strings.

    I cranked the action super low and it got quite ridiculous before it was undue buzzing. While I tend to play guitar with really low action, not so much on bass, but just wanted to test it. Raise the action up. Done. Perfect.

    I wish I had better camera or lighting, the sparkly grey is not well represented here. Oh well, happy new bass day to me.

    I"m just switching to a Wattplower for our upcoming summer tour.

    Reverend is making some terrific instruments.
