Finally Alder Again

Finally after long time i commited the foolish of selling my Jem7vwh. i bought a Jem7vsbl!!!

gotta say that the alder body makes the difference. that "strato" sound that cames when you turn the volume down a little bit, doesnot come from my Ash RG570 or My Jem"557" basswood. The Sparkle Blue is more beautiful than i imagined. the previous owner change the color of pickups and the pickguard and knobs, but im already ordered the pickguard and im waiting an answer of ibanes rules for the knobs.

bout the pickups, i had an idea:
buy and bridge Evolution with golden poles and a sustainiac ( cooler than sustainer) and put it into my jem "557" ( will become a "577" ) then put the regular evolutions in the SBL? waht do you guys think?
here is the axe:

Nice. I love VSBL's. I badly want one with a LoPro in Powder Cosmo.
