  1. I have one of these and TC Electronic sent me a set of the five MEM knobs free when I emailed their support and easy to replace, if anyone is put off by the crack, which I should add remains functional with the crack. Great amps and what a great price!
  2. I bought my 1999 Gibson T Bird some six years and it still my main gigging bass. I am fortunate as I also a Fender US Jazz and US P Bass, plus others, and whilst tonally at home Fenders may sound maybe a bit fuller with more top end when I compare using it with my band the T Bird noticeably cuts through the mix far better on the G String plus it is lighter, faster narrower neck and much better sounding when I use a plectrum for some numbers. OK so it does tip forward a little, but I have got used to that (just put your right leg forward to correct), and the dusty top end is a bit harder to reach, however the neck dive is a myth and no worse than my Fenders. I just wish Gibson were a bit entrepreneurial and bring them out in the colours like Fender do, not that I could afford a new one at 2018 prices.
  3. Yeah that's what I thought and whereas I would given him the benefit of doubt if he was unaware he then went on to say Gibson had said it was Gibson. I suggested he put a photo of the back of the headstock with made in USA to show it was Gibson. But I think I will report it.
  4. Saw this tonight https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gibson-Thunderbird-Bass-Purple-Gold/283165928384?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 i contacted him pointing out that Gibson T'birds only have three knobs in a row and a different bridge and thus looks like a resprayed Epiphone thunderbird pro, the active one with four knobs, and he replied reckons Gibson have confirmed its a Gibson! Also no usual Gibson hardcase. Hmmmm....
