  1. Well, that's definitely on my wishlist... I don't think I can justify it at the moment, I've already bought a bass this month. Which I don't really need. Gah... Something tells me it won't be here long anyway. Good luck with it
  2. Rushbo is a member here. He knows his onions, and he's a decent chap.
  3. In the fullness of time, I'd really like to play some Morphine covers
  4. Wow... I'd love it, but I haven't got the space either at home or in the car. You're a gentleman and a scholar, John.
  5. Okay, "standard" guitar tuning but down an octave and with lighter strings than a bass. Which is what you said before What sort of band are you looking to use it in? Would there be a five-string underneath?
  6. Thanks. I'm beginning to feel there is no sensible way of naming stringed instruments other than by spelling out the intervals and octave. Annoying.
  7. She doesn't frighten easily She played viola as a teenager, no wind instruments (except recorder). I don't think she's interested enough to work on it.
  8. Isn't that a baritone? Or have I misunderstood?
  9. I'll dig it out. Just to add entertainment value, technically it's left-handed, but it's fine right-handed if you string it that way.
  10. My sister thought about playing bassoon. Expensive and very hard to find teachers.
  11. There have also been things like bass banjos and bass balalaikas posted here. I don't know if anyone is actively playing them. Probably the oddest thing I've got is a three-necked six-string. That's six strings total, you understand... one neck with three strings, one with two, and one with one It's technically a bass guitar, I guess. I don't really know what it's for; my best guess is to accompany several trad instruments where the natural frequency of the trad instruments varies from instrument to instrument, and retuning every time was not sensible. But really, I don't know. Obviously I bought it here
  12. There are quite a few people here with bass synths, IIUC. Personally I have used an Ashbory to gig. I still have ambitions for cello, though time and cashflow are not on my side. I'd have nabbed that bass viol on eBay, as well, if it had been within 100 miles of me.
  13. The Performer is the only Fender design I've ever liked the look of.
  14. EBay really, really needs a sensible feedback arrangement.
