    Feedback for kevvo66

    Just took back possession of a Trace Elliot cover I'd sent to Kev but that he didn't use....somebody else I know asked about it a couple of days after I sent it to Kev, they need it for their combo. At least it's going to get used. Kev was great throughout...
  7. Some nice features....I like the way the strings go under the "nut".. More detailed info: https://www.halflightguitars.com/new-page-1/

    Joe Hubbard Warwick signature

    Well discussed... sambucadan Members 0 17 posts Report post Posted October 11, 2011 Just to set the record completely straight 😉 The Streamer models are similar to Stuart Spector NS basses in terms of body shape, original one piece bridge (now a two piece) and headstock design, which caused a legal conflict when the Streamer was first introduced. Spector eventually sued Warwick for copying the body shape, but the jury decided not to fine Warwick[citation needed] It was well documented that the first versions of the Streamer were exact copies of the NS-Bass™. The SPECTOR® NS-Bass™ was designed by Ned Steinberger for Stuart Spector in 1977; 5-years before Warwick was formed. At the annual NAMM Show in 1985 Stuart Spector became aware that a new German-based company was producing exact copies of his now famous SPECTOR® NS-Bass™. Spector, along with Ned Steinberger, confronted Hans Wilfer and he agreed to pay a licensing fee to both SPECTOR® Guitars and Ned Steinberger in return for being able to continue to produce the Streamer without legal action.[2] Shortly after this agreement was reached, SPECTOR® sold to Kramer Guitars. The new owners had no interest in pursuing Warwick to enforce the licensing agreement and Warwick continued to make the Streamer without any consequence. It is also noted from several sources that Warwick never paid any of the agreed fees. In 1990 Kramer became insolvent and filed for bankruptcy. In the wake of their financial failure Stuart Spector formed Stuart Spector Design, LTD. in 1993. In 1997 after a lengthy court battle, Stuart Spector bought back the trademark and copyrights to SPECTOR® and threatened to sue Warwick to enforce the 1985 license agreement.[3] Facing new legal action from SPECTOR®, Warwick changed many design elements of the Streamer body to make it less like the NS-Bass™. The pending litigation was eventually dropped because the new Streamer design was no longer an exact copy of the NS-Bass™

    If it gets to a "sensible" price before the last few hours it can scare off those looking for a bargain in the last few seconds.
  11. Both basses into a Mini mixer. Something like this: https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/Behringer-MX400-Micromix-4-Channel-Mixer/6LZ?origin=product-ads&gclid=CjwKCAjwyOreBRAYEiwAR2mSkh20CBO-jaYtXJRokbg-w850j57XG1lqGgFxlYnu1gujkqUdnEcPVRoCJDAQAvD_BwE Set the amp for one bass, then the BDi21 + the amp settings for the other. Cost is less than £50.

    New Build - Wenge/cocobolo/padauk hollowbody

    Slow and steady....take lots of care..I really like the idea...hope it pans out.
  13. DPD deliver Shalla's food - they email me to tell me when it's due and who the driver is. Last week there was a problem with their system so delivery was "cancelled" - rescheduled for the following say - only to arrive two hours later. They went the extra mile despite tech problems...thinking about it now, I should have added something to the "Daily awesomeness" thread but was busy photographing an amp which I'd sold...old age...I forgot.
