Now, what exactly do y'all mean by 2-7 spacing?

2-7 spacing is callowhills take on 70's jazz bass pickup spacing.

The bridge pickup is in the same spot as a 70's, but the neck pickups is just a hair closer to the neck than a 70's.  It allows for a little more ooomf if you're slap/poppin' with the blend set in the middle.

Well, got payment for my Roscoe today and it is now on it's way to France.  International shipping is EXPENSIVE!!!  Just about $550 from Austin to Paris, and that doesn't even count the customs fees he's gonna have to pay when it gets there!  Dude must have really wanted it, or can afford to put down that much on getting it.

Meanwhile, I just sent the full payment for my J6.  I can't wait to get it!

This just goes to show what God will do for you when you do what you're supposed to do for him.  I'm seeing that more than ever now. 


Congrats on the new axes fellas.  As soon as I am able, I plan on picking up an MF-5. 
When you've done your very best, do even better.

bassthumpa,
Very nice acquisition. Congratulation!
I had a very similar looking Valenti J5 with the same pickups and preamp. exception was the wenge board.
It was a great player, however I traded for a Sadowsky MV5.
Just curious what are you going to play until it arrives? I only see the Roscoe in your profile.

Here's the similar Valenti...



Edit: My bad, those are dual coil Nordy pickups tonal camelion

I think we need to start a CallowHill support group, because I'm dreaming of mine.  Between the Electronics, The top, and the finish I'm ready to go nuts waiting.

No doubt we need a support group.  It's gonna be a long wait, especially thinking about it every dern day.  Patience is a very tough one for me, but the older I get...
I'm cool with it.

Now where do I sign up for that support group.

Shoot, I don't have to wait nowhere near as long as the rest of you, but I'm already dying over here.  I'd go crazy waiting for 4-6 months!

I'm trying to give Tim a break for now, but not sure how long I can hold out.
