  1. Mine is 2016 and got the pickguard from WD Music!
  2. I did exactly the same with mine. White with black scratchplate is the winning combo for me!
  3. Needed a cheaper backup bass so I’ve just put an Aguilar AG4P-60 pickup and the 3TSB ‘60s Precision in the basket. Less than £450 all in is a bargain IMO. Shipping is towards end of February atm. I’m pretty intrigued to see how that Yanny fingerboard plays... if it’s decent, I think I’ll also get the fretless J!
  4. They clearly don’t know their market very well at all. Bass players are stereotyped as the quiet one at the back who never gets any groupie action... They’ve created an attention-grabbing bass design that also has a ‘G-Spot’ control. Can you imagine the pressure of all the eyes in the room being on you whilst also not being able to find the G-Spot in front of the club chairman and a bunch of bingo-hungry coffin-dodgers?! I think I’ll stick to a precision, a dark corner and 3rd place in the meat raffle, thanks!
  5. Is it something like this that you need? https://www.northwestguitars.co.uk/set-of-4-bass-guitar-string-ferrules-jazz-bass-precision-bass/
  6. This with Lollipop tuners and you’d have an outright winner! Edit: On further inspection I just noticed the jack is on the edge of the body. Switch that back to the control plate and I’d be happy! 😂
  7. SR1800 had a Wenge/Bubinga neck and a rosewood fingerboard. SR1820 looks like a slight update to this with the change to a Panga Panga/Purpleheart neck and Panga Panga fingerboard. It would appear that, like other manufacturers, a move away from rosewood and less sustainable woods has prompted the spec change and the model variant.
  8. I bet it nails that Joe Dart tone perfectly! Beautiful instrument
  9. Sorry, totally missed that first time through!
  10. Any good (might be too pricey?) http://www.harvest-guitar.com/en/Bass-Bag-Short-Scale-oxid/
  11. I had an Ibanez SR600 and changed from B-G to E-C and didn’t need to do any work to the nut. I switched the strings to Dunlop Superbrights 30-130 (donating the low B to a friend). Gauges were 30, 45, 65, 85, 105 and works no problem.
  12. I recently got the TMB-100 for travelling (Id rather chuck that in the hold, it’s easily replaced!) and those dodgy gigs where drinks are flying etc. I have to say it’s a really impressive little bass. I’m already starting to think of it becoming a project bass, maybe having a Capri orange nitro refin and upgrading the pickups but overall it’s tonally versatile and looks quite smart too! I imagine the 600 will be really nice. Ibanez quality is always really decent once you get to the level (like the SR500/600 range are fantastic value for money too!)
  13. My CIJ Geddy Lee is a shadow of its former self. It now has lollipop tuners, concentric tone knobs and Aguilar AG4J-HC pickups... I’m not welcome in some places ‘round town!
  14. Sunburst plus white = Argos lol. Plus, the heel access truss rod space looks silly with just wood underneath. Stick with black!
