  1. Currently on my hol’s in Newquay, minus my phone which didn’t make it any further south than Lancaster services, but I’ve discovered the holiday park has a ‘WiFi Lounge’, so felt I should submit my vote... Loving the variety of tracks, blown away that someone voted for me, and determined to submit another entry next month. And I promise it’ll have an actual title this time..!
  2. To quote my 6 year old “that song’s pretty cool... the one with black in it” And thanks for the kind words. KotS
  3. Thanks, AD. I deliberately didn’t listen to yours before I posted, but I’ve given it a listen since. That’s quite a bass tone, and I love the percussion.
  4. Been a while etc, etc...Anyway, bear in mind that this, the first track Ive ever submitted, was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in one day. The idea came to me while while looking at the image and watching our various cats going about their business and interacting with one another; It starts off pleasant enough, then changes to a slightly ominous atmosphere before kicking off... if you have cats you'll (hopefully) get it
  5. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1490984252' post='3269665'] The Winner's Certificate is going to look even odder than usual later on this evening, I fear. No voters left to break the deadlock..? No..? Oh well, small fonts time ([i]sigh[/i]..!). [/quote] Phew, made it just in time..! Not sure how/if it has affected the outcome, but I'm now determined to submit next month. Finally...
  6. [quote name='Thunderpaws' timestamp='1428986932' post='2746666'] "...my first bass was a Vester a Stage Series in bright bright red with a white pick gaurd and potentially a maple neck..." [/quote] What, like this one that I picked up at a car boot sale a few years ago..? [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Vester%20Stage%20Series%20P-Bass/DSC_0253.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Vester%20Stage%20Series%20P-Bass/DSC_0256.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Vester%20Stage%20Series%20P-Bass/DSC_0259.jpg[/IMG] I've since moved her on, but after a restring and tweak she was quite playable. IIRC she only cost £20.00
  7. My first acquisition for a while... [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Xperia%20Auto%20Uploads/DSC_0314_zpsjvfrdi4y.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Xperia%20Auto%20Uploads/DSC_0315_zpsx5wkumy1.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Xperia%20Auto%20Uploads/DSC_0316_zps9typsei9.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Xperia%20Auto%20Uploads/DSC_0320_zpsugwxs9af.jpg[/IMG] Not been able to definitively identify her, but it may be she is a Stagg (no not that Stagg) from around '77, and branded for the Australian market. As ever with MIJ's, if you want 5 different opinions, ask 3 different enthusiasts... I've become quite attached to her, even though I had intended moving her on...
  8. Relic'ed 70's, eh..? I have to assume that my '72 is naturally relic'ed as it was acquired in 1989 (IIRC) before there was such a thing as Relic'ing...

  9. [quote name='gub' timestamp='1408044315' post='2526621'] That LP copy looks quite nice! [/quote] More pic's here - http://photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Session Pro Les Paul
  10. I've done OK at a Cash Generator that I swing by most Saturdays when kids are at dance classes. More often that not, if I like the look of something, I leave a minimum deposit, then pay it up over a few weeks. Barely feel it that way... [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/5104a11ac9238a806529691e5eb708f6_zps9e74849b.jpg[/IMG] Most recent acquisition... Peavey Millenium BXP5 £70 [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Session%20Pro%20Les%20Paul/DSC_0094.jpg[/IMG] Session Pro LP Copy £40... Ply body, but it looked the part with a really nice maple veneer and played great after a quick setup. Moved it on via eBay for a ill' profit. [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Vester%20Tradition%20Series%20Strat/DSC_0422.jpg[/IMG] Vester Tradition Series '57 S Type. I paid too much; £120.00, but this one was phenomenal. Again, moved on for a bit of a profit... Can't find a pic of the Ibanez RGR321 that I got for £80 cos it 'wasn't working'... Previous owner had attempted to fit a SD Blackout (in the dark, while wearing boxing gloves apparently). A pair of humbuckers from an old CSL LP copy were quickly dropped in, the Blackout went on eBay, quickly followed by the guitar and I had doubled my money in a couple weeks..! Never mind, here she is [IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/Xperia%20Auto%20Uploads/DSC_0200_zps65319140.jpg[/IMG] It's very much the luck of the draw when it comes to visiting these places, and being a regular who knows his stuff helps. Kids classes start back in a couple weeks, and I'm looking forward to paying a long overdue visit. I'll keep you posted...
  11. A lot of activity on Twitter suggesting Randy Coven has passed away... A bassist that I was aware of for a long time, but the Ark albums really made me sit up and listen.
  12. Here we go; my first 5-er and most recent Crack Generator impulse buy; [URL=http://s42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/?action=view&current=d0e29648f0e4fe8618c220e23bcfaee1_zpsb537c0aa.jpg][IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/th_d0e29648f0e4fe8618c220e23bcfaee1_zpsb537c0aa.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://s42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/?action=view&current=b8421e8287a796c647230941dfdbdb4b_zpsc32f52e5.jpg][IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/th_b8421e8287a796c647230941dfdbdb4b_zpsc32f52e5.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://s42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/?action=view&current=5104a11ac9238a806529691e5eb708f6_zps9e74849b.jpg][IMG]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e334/kingofthestuntmen/th_5104a11ac9238a806529691e5eb708f6_zps9e74849b.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Nothing special compared to some here, but for £70, paid up over 4 or 5 weeks, I reckon I did OK...
  13. Deliverance..? And now we're back to the banjo..!
  14. Uh-oh, I've been working on a germ of an idea on my Variax. So it's Parlour Guitar, Dobro AND Banjo..!
  15. My attention keeps being drawn to the 'sleeping face' on the left side of the pillow every time I look at the pic... Anyone else see this..?
