Both strung with old (now) TI Jazz Flats. Neither will need to see new strings - ever (although I do have a spare set somewhere just in case).

My P has been refretted twice, firstly because I was a complete idiot in the '70s and used RS66 fret eaters which were well-named for a reason and secondly because I defretted it for a few years to play the lines before I went back to playing the spaces.
Sweet lil’ rig there - what’s the jazz?

Also yay Rog!

Oooh I used to have one of those in natural/ black finish. Probably the most mojotastic bass I’ve ever played or owned.

I would do the opposite - swap the tort for the black but keep everything else the same

My bass playing is arguably more important than my guitar playing. Got a jap squier p with bartolinis and chromes.

I’m looking out for any interesting pickups for a bass project I’m putting together. By interesting I mean not pbass or jbass. Something Gibson maybe like thunderbird or a big chrome brick humbucker. I have a set of SD quarter pounder pbass pups to trade/sell.
Any got anything cool?

I do actually, but my serious confession is really enjoying playing that song. on the bass :)
Don't ask me about Barry Mannilow, it won't end well.

Barry is big in India, because he writes the songs that make the whole world Singh.
