  1. Agreed. If I saw this thread and I wasn't a member, I'd not join the forum. As it is it makes me wonder if I want to be associated with a place where such playground behaviour is tolerated, so if you don't see me around for a while....well, you know why I've gone.
  2. I don't think it's possible to build a long-scale hollow body that would balance well enough for my liking, so some flavour of neck-through jazz bass with teeny-tiny string spacing would have to do.
  3. Could you ask someone (here, maybe ?) to make you a pedal based on a schematic ? Jinx @Jus Lukin !
  4. I have two sig basses bought for their own qualities....I'd not buy a bass just because of the person who played them. I have a Jack Casady bass - a lovely instrument, only marred by its neck dive. It's a testament to how much I like it that I decided to keep it despite the ergonomics. Usually I have no patience at all with instruments that don't balance on me, but it sounds and plays so well that it's remained in my possession. I've also got a Geddy Lee sig...mainly as it seemed to match the spec of my beloved '62 reissue jazz very closely and I fancied a spare....and I quite liked the bling . Loved it at first, but now find that my '86 reissue just 'has it' - I think the Geddy Lee is just too clanky for my taste. Interestingly I'd never even listened to any Rush until I started thinking about buying the GL Jazz and wanting to get an idea of the type of sound I could expect !
  5. Looks cool, but did nobody look at the design and mention that they might need a bigger box ?
  6. A spare battery and a couple of spare plectrums don't really count as a 'box' I guess ! .
  7. Folks, I think you've crossed the line...this is just pointing and laughing now. The thread is starting to be just unpleasant, and isn't doing credit to anyone here, nor to Basschat as a whole. Please feel free to flame me mercilessly if you wish, I don't mind. I just think you should let the guy to get on with what he does and if you don't like what he sells.....don't look at his auctions. YMMV
  8. That's in stonking condition.
  9. I'll/We'll be interested/excited /inspired to hear/see /perceive the reply
  10. Maybe it's to head off any exploration of why you didn't get it - not in a sinister way, just 'Don't bother us for feedback or a reason why we didn't employ you' style of thing. Not that it doesn't strike me as weird tho.
  11. A friend of mine had an old Electric Mistress that had the earth disconnected as well. I'm fairly sure the earth was just attached to the chassis, but don't quote me....it was some time ago.
  12. OK...I think I'm ready. I consider this the musical equivalent of exploding a nail bomb full of anthrax in a pram outside a primary school, on the last day of term before the summer holidays just as the kids are let out into the playground. Maybe.
  13. I do have one more heinous theme-tune related horror, but I'm not sure I'm ready for it this early on a Friday. I'll need my medication first.
  14. Lovely ! Looking forward to seeing the others.
