  1. It doesn't look like a Rickenbacker. It doesn't look like anything. 💩
  2. To make matters worse, the UK has had points deducted. Oh well, you cant get any lower than last place. 😂 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48375560
  3. Mark is very cagey about his pickups. He doesn't give much away about them. Has anyone ever taken one apart?
  4. Didnt he do all those pizzicato string arangements on the early Adam Faith records??
  5. The Specials have covered that on their new album. In fairness, Terry Hall does a reasonable job of it.
  6. Either thats an old police car or this! 👍 e---------------------------------------|-------------------------------------| B---------------------------------------|-------------------------------------| G---------------------------------------|-------------------------------------| D---------------------------------------|-------------------------------------| A---------------------------------------|-------------------------------------| E-0--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--2-|0--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--2|
  7. Ah great! I used that bass as a guidleline to Mark when he built mine. I pinched a lot of the specs too.😁
  8. I changed from steel to nickle after I found that my fingertips were getting sore and tender after a while. Nickle strings don't seem to affect me.
  9. Is this the one? https://classicandcoolguitars.co.uk/portfolio/limelight-00224-pino-p/
  10. Hmm. Katrina and the waves won it and she is from the US. But with so many countries pulling out of the contest, they have had to make the numbers up with Australia etc.
  11. Yes, and deffo get it looked at by a doctor too.
  12. Do bass strings have a best before date? I found 5 packs of Ernie Ball Super Slinkies languishing at the bottom of a cupboard that I completely forgot about. They must be 5 years old at least, but the packets are sealed. I may get round to using them at some stage, but otherwise I will bin them if they are perishable.
  13. How many shows follow the same format? Buy something cheap from an auction and try and sell it back to an auction at a profit. Go and look at different properties for sale and buy/not buy one. Find some old junk, do it up and sell it for a profit. ZZzzz!! 😴
  14. Good impersonation of Bruce Thomas there! 😁
  15. So is this aliexpress making copies of trademarked brands and selling them as unplayable crap??
  16. Amazon? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Warwick-RedLabel-Wetsuit-Electric-Tailpiece/dp/B0002GVDSA/ref=sr_1_1?crid=13CPTWK9PEY8K&keywords=warwick+bass+strings+5&qid=1558171513&s=gateway&sprefix=warwick+bass%2Caps%2C565&sr=8-1
  17. First bass was a short scale Satellite I bought from a second hand shop in Hanwell, London in 1982. It was terrible. I gave up on it and sold it back to the shop. That was followed by a Westone thunder 1 from a mates mums' Little-woods catalogue. Number 3 was one of the first Squiers. A 1984 JV 57 Precision in salmon pink. I later had it resprayed . (My avatar picture) First amp was also a Carlsboro Cobra. I was always skint and unemployed in the 80's. My mate bought it for me and I had to pay him back weekly.
  18. Can you post some more pictures? I quite like the look of that.
  19. Theres a few on ebay in the USA. Maybe you could get one made?
  20. They Dont? 😥 http://www.transitvanclub.co.uk/
  21. I love a Fender Precision. They are the transit van of the bass world. Just plug in and you are ready to go without any mucking about with switches and knobs etc. 👍
  22. I always get a good chuckle out of Skank and Teebs. Wonder where Discreet is these days? Seems to have scarpered. 🤔
