So that's how you lost the junior. Nice, they're great guitars. Does it have the see through bobbin P90's?

Wow! I bet it sounds as sexy as the year.

How's the weight on this beauty?

Many, many pounds/KGs. I don't have scales at home, but it's a beast.


looks great - do you play it on stage with Zephyr?

This is indeed how I lost the Junior, straight swap. :) It's more like Grandad's axe, not a lot of original bits on it. It had some high gain Seymour Duncan p90s in there when I got it, but I've swapped them out for some Antiquities when I did a rewire on it. Whilst it's a bit of a mongrel, I love it, and despite the weight will happily play it for a 4 hour gig.

Its always amazing when guitarists whinge about weight when bass players are just expected to do it ;)

That surprises me. Bet it's not that heavy compared to some.

Anyway, here's mine. Just the R7 on the right. Not too heavy at all.
