  1. What size nut width are you?

    Always a Precision man, age and arthritis have led me to the way of the 38mm Jazz nut. Have a slim 2014 American Special Jazz neck on a standard 2003 MIM Precision body. Other bass is a 40-mm width Yamaha.
  2. Hi BassChat

  3. Been a long time, been a long time...

    Certainly does...
  4. Been a long time, been a long time...

    Welcome Stew, recently did that to my right shoulder. At 2mph. On a road bike. Wet leaves...
  5. Hello from Spain!

  6. Open strings: Yay or nay, with reasons.

    A most informative thread!
  7. Noticed on another thread that someone didn't use open strings, for him because if damping issues. I'm a user of open strings. I see no reason why not, although apparently Phil Lesh always thought it an abomination - never really understood why. I certainly do NOT agree with the "nut and frets sound different " argument. In a band context it would be all but impossible to ever tell, and difficult anyway. Let's hear it...
  8. DGCF tuning - anyone using it regularly?

    Yes, the setup was easy, little adjustment needed. Using standard Chromes, after TI Jazz Flats.
  9. Spare bass has been set u like this as we're going to be doing some Pretenders stuff. Anyone else tuned this way?
  10. Shergold Fan from Sunderland

    Welcome! A 414 is my (just about) second bass!
  11. Anone using two Barefaced One10s?

    Right, that settles that, then! Let the saving begin! Thanks for all your feedback.
  12. Thinking of moving to a pair using my LMII to drive - good plan? Need to ease my back even more!
  13. How was your gig last night?

    Two this past weekend. Friday night gig was so close to my pad I took the gear round on a sack truck. Small but well-packed pub. Went down a treat. Much too loud. Saturday in Okehampton, much larger pub, with a stage! Single 2.5 hour set, so the punters didn't decamp. Very hot! Went down a treat. Much too loud.
  14. How was your gig last night?

    First gig for several weeks. White Hart Hotel in Launceston. Well paid, very good crowd of 250+. Boss TU2 packed up...played straight in with a clip-on Snark.
