    Look at the OTHER end of the bass. You

    that allow leaning the bass against a wall
    without it tipping over sideways. Soooo ...
    there's also a rubber bumper on the tuner
    peg so the hardware doesn't mark up the
    wall, plus that bit more friction adds even
    more resistance against tipping sideways.

    Acoarst, that adds an extra step to string
    changes, something I can easily tolerate
    every 15 to 20 years, give or take ;-)

    If you're viewing the image with the "+"
    option, you'll see the rear strap button is
    now on one of the bridge-plate screws.

    ============================

    The white "fuzzy rope" is in its storage
    location. It can be woven into the strings
    for extra damping. The blue damper is
    always in play.

    If your next question is about the fifth
    knob [well, really the second knob ... ]
    that's for the piezo PUs. If you read my
    sig, you'll find eight basses with the "p"
    in their model designation :-)

    Golem, how are the rubber feet attached to the body ? Never seen that done before! Or the strap button mod ! That’s interesting to say the least

    First a warning:

    Any reader squeamish about
    offenses to original-ness can
    preserve their well-being by
    NOT reading any further.

    OK now. The rubber feet are
    attached by the usual means
    of attaching stuff to a piece
    of wood ... IOW, screwed on.

    To retain the original strap
    button location would need
    taller feet, or else the strap
    button hits the floor first :-(

    Since you didn't ask ... yet:

    The foot or bumper on the
    tuner peg is secured by a
    skinny screw which shares
    the same hole that the end
    of the string goes into. The
    leader's windings provide
    enuf grip for the screw.

    ++++++++++++++++++++

    If you want to have rubber
    feet but worry about resale
    value, here's the dope. Just
    replace the feet with strap
    buttons ... and neatly plug
    the factory original hole. In
    my experience, no one gets
    freaked out over dual strap
    buttons but the rubber feet
    are seen as blasphemy. And
    acoarst you should replace
    the original bridge screw so
    you don't end up with three
    rear straps buttons !

    Hey I’m the last person to get offended by making your bass your own !
    It’s a great idea, it comes with its own permanent custom stand. Face forward against the wall. Perfect!
    I was wondering about how you attached it to the tuner. Now I know.
    Nice one !
