  1. A whole page and no mention of @BigBeefChief !
  2. I think there is a story as far as icastle is concerned. I just can't remember what it is 😬. There may have been a falling out.
  3. Very nice. One string too many for me, but lovely nonetheless.
  4. Yes, agree with both @LukeFRC and @Ricky Rioli. I haven't listened to all of it, but there is a point around the 50 second mark in Come Back Down where whatever comes in there seems slightly too loud for everything else that is happening, bass included. On the other hand, I Should Know sounds much better and doesn't suffer from that. Unglued seems fine too.
  5. This. It’s exactly why when I was looking for a P4 with a narrower neck that I ordered a Shuker. It will probably double the price of whatever it is you’re looking at, but Jon will build you exactly what you want and it will be worth it.
  6. Last time I checked, Scotland was part of Great Britain and therefore British.
  7. Rules as per @Sibob’s original 2018 abstinence thread 🤷‍♂️
  8. Allowances: - If you have put down a deposit on something before committing to this, which then requires a final payment within 2019, that single payment permitted. However you may wish to explore whether you can pay the balance early (if you're a little OCD like me).
  9. As long as my 2021 ordered and not yet received Shuker doesn’t count towards a fail in 2022, I think I could be in with a shout next year.
  10. My last gig of 2012 was 4/12 and I’m thankful that I’m not in crowded venues through this Christmas and New Year.
  11. I’m all for sharing, but is it too much to ask to make the topic understandable?
  12. It’s just the usual incomprehensible twaddle from the OP. I can only think that these topics are actually brought about by sporadic moments of comparative lucidity. The Santana album/track is 70’s by the skin of it’s teeth by which time King, Lindup and the Gould brothers were surely together.
  13. ….and….If I didn’t have J’s coming out of my ears I’d have the thing at that price!
  14. You don’t have to justify anything @AndyTravis. Those that know you know. End of.
  15. Good work in snagging your dream bass 👏👏👏👏. Looks fab 👍
  16. Well that looks fairly awful. Don't know what's going on with the tuners. Looks like someone had a previous attempt at fixing different a different type.
  17. @BassApprentice- just seen this has been bumped in the sale section. These are cracking basses and the seller is offering this at a great price. Lovely small body, superbly balanced and killer sound.
  18. I'm with you @thebrig. I think I started a topic on this very subject a little while ago. I do get the argument that you can spec any P model with a J neck through a CS build, but that really jacks the price up. Frustrated by the lack of choice and being in need of a quality P bass for a project, I ordered a Shuker in early 2021. Being the impatient so and so I am, when I was also offered a Lakland USA 44-64 Bob Glaub earlier this year and it ticked all my boxes and I bought it. The Lakland is really top notch and the neck is beautiful, almost a mirror image of the neck on my favourite J. I'm still waiting for the Shuker, so that's almost certainly going to be 2022, but it will be worth the wait. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't have to be a Fender. Or maybe it does in your case? I don't know. I think I would have to look for a significant amount of time to find a Fender P with a J neck that is significantly better than the Lakland I already have.
