I thought I would post a few photos so you all can see what she looks like today. I think that a 17 year old bass in this condition is quite unusual. I may need to replace the pickup selector switch but other than that, she is in great shape. A totally amazing looking and sounding bass! What a beauty! She turns heads whenever I take her out to play! (O;

Very nice.

How is the intonation on your B? Looks like you are out of room.

Fantastic bass, definitely (IMHO) the most beautiful Distillate on this board!

Congrats, what a beauty and in such great condition.
Question: I see a plate on the back for the batteries but I can not see an LED switch on the front? Does this bass have LED's?

It's only recently that LED switches have become popular. Just plug in the 1/4" jack - that's the traditional LED switch.
