Rusty, we still have t-shirt days here . . .  just a little different.
 
T-shirt underneath a long sleeve pullover wrapped in a sturdy flannel button up shirt.
 
And that's when I'm inside the house!

Pete, the neck sounds & plays amazing! The extra wide Ebony gives it a much more full sound than I get with my SCSD, & the sustain is incredible! (Except for the B string, but I'm working on that)

That's funny Paul! I used to have a friend in Alaska & I would call him up in the middle of February & ask him what he was doing, knowing full well that he was shoveling snow or stuck inside trying to stay warm, then when he answered I would proceed to tell him I was riding my Harley in a T shirt! God Bless Texas!!

Good one Slawie! Of course, the rock is made of concrete, but it still made a nice backdrop.

It's been really hard to capture the exact color of this bass in pictures, but the ones my wife took at my gig Friday night are the True Blue of the bass. I also bought an Ampeg BA112 to run in stereo & I now have the sound I have been looking for! I run my neck & bridge pickup through the Fender Rumble 350 in mono & my bridge pickup through the Ampeg to enhance the mids & highs. The Ampeg is only 50 watts so it is not adequate to run full stereo & compete with the 350 watt Rumble, but thankfully Ron, in his infinite wisdom built the DS-5R where the treble jack is still hot even in mono mode.  
 
On another note, I have worn red hi top Converse Chuck Taylor shoes at every gig since 1985, but to honor my new Europa I switched to blue ones!
