  1. I had exactly the same problem and like you, I really wanted to try one again as I've been recruited by an 80's covers band where the B string is very useful. I ended up going for the new Stingray Specials as I love the look and find them very playable (the new electronics and the new weight profiles make things a heck of a lot easier). For me the secret was to effectively lock my 4 string comfort blankets away and just persevere. It took a while and every so often I thought "hmmm, I'd feel a lot better playing a 4 stringer and try and transpose everything" but for once I stuck at it and now actually find 5's more familiar than 4's.
  2. Wow. That's a rare find...Paul Weller smiling
  3. Jeez, the price. Imagine how much he'd charge for one in good condition...
  4. I'm looking to put Flats on one of my Stingray 5 Strings and am wondering what other folk are using? I really don't like D'Addario Chromes (too high tension) but am interested to see what other suggestions they are which don't make the B string too floppy or too "off" in terms of intonation, especially further up the neck. Any ideas at all?
  5. You sound like you're spoiling for a fight. If so, you may be better off on Talkbass.
  6. I've been asked a number of times about trades and while I'm good for basses, I'd consider an American Original Tele or Jazzmaster in similar condition to this bass. I'm not looking for anything else thanks
  7. There is of course something far worse....
  8. Couldn't agree more. Much more talented than me but leaves me completely cold. As for the smug expressions...
  9. I love the way the guitar has deliberately been made to face the wall
  10. Thanks Nik. It's a stunning bass and one I'm really unsure about moving on but needs must I'm afraid.
  11. I don't earn my keep from gigging as I have a full-time job but will have lost around £5-6k this year if all our gigs are cancelled.
