    Oh, you’re a happy pair aren’t you 🙄

    39,321 registered Basschatters and the most we've had online since the conversion is 986? We can do better than 2.5% can't we? Let's set a time and date, a window of 5 minutes on a Sunday perhaps, and smash that figure well north of four figures. Just for the hell of it 😀

    Yes, I'm going on the 4th.

    We all know what he means though 😉 Those blue LED’s really work with the black gloss finish don’t they @martthebass 😀

    Ahem. That’s quite narrow 😬

    One thing’s for sure, if all I get out of them is a replacement neck, I won’t be putting it on the bass 😬.

    Ah, love that album. Overlooked IMHO. Shallow Be Thy Game is my favourite.

    Yes, that had occurred to me. My counter offer would be to save them the bother and ask for a contribution to the graphite replacement.

    Having had a think about how I was going to word my reply to Fender, I sent an e-mail off to them and have had a further response from them today. Thankfully they seem to be taking this matter a little more seriously now and have offered to have the bass collected so that it can be inspected at Fender UK. Although I haven’t mentioned what has happened to the bass since the start of this thread, my plan is to negotiate the return of just the neck. Having spoken with Rob at Status, I think it should be fairly clear to anyone who knows a bit about guitars that the neck is shot, without it being attached to the rest of it 😬. I’ve tried taking a photo of what the neck looks like. It’s not a great picture to be honest, but it’s the best my phone will do. I’m not even sure what a neck like this should look like when it is unstressed, but I'm fairly sure it's not like this!

    Your wife has good taste. Miele are really good machines.

    Yes, I saw that. It looks great. I would say that if you’ve found a Rickenbacker that you’re 100% happy with, don’t get rid of it unless you’re completely done with the brand. I’d still buy the Stealth tho 😀

    There is a nice looking Series 2 for sale at Bass Direct at the moment 😀 http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Status_S2_4_Cocobolo.html

    You may have a bit of a wait 😀

    Yes, I think you’re right. It could give it a more open sound, but I don’t think you would know for sure unless you bit the bullet. Yes, plain white dots on mine 👍

    Yes, I don’t think it would work quite as well for me with new shiny tuners and a pristine shell pink body. Bit of an odd contrast going on, which I like 😀
