  1. [quote name='51m0n' post='559011' date='Aug 3 2009, 10:02 AM']nope, methylated spirits - the purple nice smelling foul tasting stuff is what you want. I've been doing this for well over a year and not had to buy new strings in that period (except for a new bass) - I keep a set in the meths and a set on the bass for each bass in the house and rotate as necessary. Works a treat![/quote] Cool , thanks , I was a bit scared off by the warning on the bottles Quote: "Harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed. Harmful: possible risk of irreversible effects through inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed. Also i have seen methylated spirits and mineralised methylated spirits , whats the difference between the 2 , are either prefereable over the other
  2. sorry to be bumping a dead thread , when you say meths , is there any particular type of meths? Sorry for the dumb question I just remember seeing about cleaning strings with meths and then seeing on the back of a bottle of meths warinings to avoid contact with skin etc and countless other warnings
  3. [quote name='markdavid' post='546013' date='Jul 21 2009, 09:01 AM']Am after selling or doing a trade on my Ibanez SR900 , is a nice bass , good weight (not too heavy not too light), has a nice slender neck feels really nice to play and has some nice features such as bartolini mk1 pickups , 3 band eq and through body stringing. In terms of a trade im after a Precision bass or something similar although I am open to suggestions (let me know what you got) . Unfortunately unable to ship so it would be collection or could meet somewhere in london , im based in the Croydon area.[/quote] nice bass , have a bump on me
  4. Thanks for the replies , I have a 62 reissue with the stock pickups. Jonthebass Thanks for the suggestion of the Classic stacks , I will definately look into those .
  5. Hi , Was hoping someone here might be able to recommend some pickups for me , I have a Jazz Bass and the stock Fender pickups just aren't doing it for me , they just dont have enough highs for my tastes , can anybody recommend some nice , bright jazz bass pickups (not active pickups though) , im after highs and high mids and I like a bright snarly, tangy, biting sound
  6. Hi All , Was after some help , have a bass that is strung BEAD , I am after getting the B string as tight as possible , Anyone able to recommend a set of strings for me , I am using rounds at the moment but have been thinking of maybe switching to chromes to get a tighter B string. I have thought about ordering a 4 string set of strings and seperately ordering a .140 B string but id rather keep it all as one set if possible
  7. I think the more appropriate question with regards to this thread is "Why buy MIM Fender" , obviously a Squier will not be as good as a 1k USA Fender but from what other people have said , the classic vibe series seems to be on par with the MIM Fenders
  8. [quote name='chris_b' post='362464' date='Dec 24 2008, 12:40 AM']They were not rated very highly at the time. If you had one you sold it as soon as you could afford a Fender![/quote] Thanks , why was that , crappy pickups? bad construction?
  9. Ive seen one of these basses being sold in a music shop near me , I love the look of these basses but are they any good ? and how much do they generally tend to go for? Btw its identical in looks to the one is these pictures which i found on the net (pictures are a bit crappy quality though) [url="http://www.madaxe.com/3/1/guitars/Burns/Baldwins/Vibraslim/bass/13.jpg"]http://www.madaxe.com/3/1/guitars/Burns/Ba...lim/bass/13.jpg[/url] [url="http://www.madaxe.com/3/1/guitars/Burns/Baldwins/Vibraslim/bass/4.jpg"]http://www.madaxe.com/3/1/guitars/Burns/Ba...slim/bass/4.jpg[/url]
  10. BUMP , we need more of these isolated bass tracks
  11. [quote name='markytbass' post='356275' date='Dec 16 2008, 06:44 PM']Thats a 34a on the website you've linked to. I had one about a year ago but it was the older model with a full pick guard and block inlays (see my avitar). They seem to have improved the bridge as well. In my opinion the sound was very close to a Stingray.[/quote] Sorry guys , this is the bass , they look very similar which has thrown me a bit [url="http://guitartalk.co.kr/front/php/product.php?product_no=1546&main_cate_no=37&display_group=1"]GB54 Bass[/url] Thanks for the replies , sounds like a good bass for the money
  12. Hi All , Ive just seen in a shop near me a Cort GB54 going for £195 (is black and has a jazz pickup in the neck position and a musicman humbucker at the bridge ) , looking at the bass (have not played it yet) it looks very nicely made and has active 2 band eq. Has anybody played these and are they any good? [url="http://guitartalk.co.kr/front/php/product.php?product_no=1547&main_cate_no=37&display_group=1"]Link to Japanese (I think) website with picture of GB54 Bass[/url]
  13. Been gassing for a Fender Musicmaster recently (had one many years ago) but am a bit confused regarding prices for these, ive seen them on ebay and on the web going for anything from £300-£900 , what is a reasonable price for these basses? I would happily pay £300-£400 for one of these basses but some of the prices ive seen on the web are crazy
  14. thanks for the replies , they have been very helpful
