  1. I posted this three years ago. The contractions on my left hand have definitely got worse on the palm but have not yet affected the fingers. I stopped stretching on consultants advice. I practice more than ever without problem. I have since met people who have had dreadful contortions of their fingers. Here’s hoping

  3. Never thought about this. I was not gonna remove the neck!
  4. Apologies...it’s the ns design cr4 radius bass guitar that I am looking at
  5. Thanks. I don’t own one yet. Been looking then came across this comment which put me off a bit.
  6. Was it easy? Did you treat the wood ? I thought of using danish oil.
  7. I just read somewhere that this instrument does not have individual string adjustments to regulate intonation. Does anyone know if this is true or does it matter or do they have another method of adjustment?
  8. Hi would like to remove the pain from the neck of my Musicman SUB. Was gonna do it anyway but now it ha started to ‘bubble’. Can I use paint remover or best done with sandpaper and sweat?
  9. I am thinking about importing a bass from the EU (Maruszczyk)Bit confused about the VAT and import duty thing. I notice, for example, that some suppliers include 21% VAT for example. I assume that this is the tax you pay in that country? You have to then pay VAT to get it into this country? I notice that some suppliers (Bass Direct possibly) offer a VAT free price if exporting.....assuming the country that it will be sent to will charge the receiver VAT. I haven’t seen that in other suppliers. Do you also pay VAT on used basses? All a bit confusing. I last bought something from the US several years a ago and was billed by the PO when I picked the item up but unclear about the EU....particularly with the Brexit stuff. Has anyone done this recently?
  10. I am 18 months into lessons with German but my teacher is. French player. I bowed open strings for over a year and if I wasn’t so damn old I would probably bow open strings for two years. For me it was all about tension. Start with the back, shoulder and in particular the triceps....a muscle often overlooked. Then the (controlled)limp wrist.....also used in drumming and rhythm guitar playing. I still struggle but worth every practice hour
  11. Gonna check for loose screws before I call.....just in case. It’s a great cab. I bought it cos we did a tour to Amsterdam by public transport. It’s so light with nice warm sound and enough volume for a pub. 2 acoustic guitars, eguitar, cajon and 4 vocalist. On and off trains, ferries, trams etc. One hand lift ...walked miles...be sad if it’s damaged. I have a Greenboy fearless for bigger gigs but miss the one10 for convenience.
