Colin asked me to share these photos with the Club:

Plus, I found these pictures that I should have posted while I was moving in January:

The Ebony accent laminate is a nice touch!

Collin, welcome to the Triple O club....when you get a chance, give us a close-up of those custom knobs and that unique truss rod cover. Was that brass done at Alembic? Nice touch....
Best of luck with her; play in good health...

This looks like the bass that turned up at the bass centre in the UK a short while ago. I was intrigued by the upside down lefthanded stringing although the bass player with hayseed dixie has the same. At the time I saw it, it was heading off for a special engaving, presumably the truss rod cover. Fantastic bass collin I'll send my left handed daughter down to steal it ;-)

Welcome to the club colin, it is indeed fantastic. The more you visit, the more you'll learn; about beer, barbeques, stockings, even the occasional discussion on guitars and basses ;-)
Enjoy playing the JPJ and don't forget to post gig pictures.

Hello from Florida Colin. That is an amazing bass. I can't make out the Zepplin logo that you mentioned. Do you have a close up of it? Enjoy and Congratulations.

Those are some really, really nice inlays. Did you do them yourself, or did someone else do them?
