    Hagstrom made a six-string version, but I've never seen a 5-er.

    DiMarzio makes some great pups. I've used DP-123 and DP-127 in "J" and "P" style basses.

    The mounting screw holes don't align, so more holes will have to be drilled, at minimum.

    This might conceivably be avoided by fabricated a custom mounting base that attaches via the stock,...

    "This Rivoli is a whole different animal."

    "...made by the wonderful folks at the Peerless factory in Korea back in 1999"

    For some reason, it won't let me link directly to the page to which I wanted to direct you. You have to click on the first link on the page that my link DOES go to. This information evidently...

    Both my 90s SF case and my NS SF case are about 4-5/8" tall (exterior, top-to-bottom with case shut and latched) so I think the difference in largely in the thickness of the padding. Otherwise, the...

    To my eye, the binding looks "light amber" but the body looks "brown". But as I and others have suggested, the darkness may vary across a spectrum from one instrument to another, depending on the...

    R.e.:"Newark Street" Starfire basses: the "natural" ones look brown. The "red" ones look wine burgundy-ish red. They don't look identical or even all that close, to my eye. But the "natural" ones...

    "the finish of the bass in the link I posted has a bit of 'amber' in it as well"

    I'm thinking that that may a result of some sort of a tinted top coat, because the binding on the NS basses has a...

    I'm sure they vary, but based on the ones I've seen, the color is a little bit darker brown a shade than what's in that link. Doesn't look red or blonde.

    This is a pretty accurate shot of a...

    Good point., mellowgerman. I've yet to find a Casady to try out in the flesh, but have little doubt that I'd wind up preferring the SF's shorter scale length and narrower neck.
