  1. Wow, I fell in love with a Rick a few weeks ago at Guitar Guitar in Brum. I am doing everything in my power not to go back and try her again!!! for fear of buying it. but seriously IF, and I know it's a big IF, you still have this in the new year please PM me. I am a defo fan of the black scratch plate too. All the best.
  2. [quote name='Kev' post='1015737' date='Nov 7 2010, 09:20 PM']Although i thought it obvious, the picture i posted was just a bit of fun, and certainly not intended to cause offence. My apologies to the OP if it has upset him in any way, just a bit of fun on an otherwise disastrously dull Sunday evening.[/quote] Yeah I know what you mean. My Mrs is watching "Downton Abbey" so I am encouraging my 2 year old daughter to make fart noises through her big brothers cyberman helmet. I don't think anyone can moan at a project neck with tuners for £60 odd quid though?

    top 10

    In no particular order ... and probably not my top 10 but I'm inspired to have a go anyway, Ambulance Blues . Neil Young. Backlash Love Affair. Richard Thompson. Simple Song. Lyle Lovett. The Chinese Way. Level 42. Soldier Soldier. Stephen Stills. In the world of Giants. Max Webster. White Lightening. George Jones. The Trees. Rush. These Apples. Barenaked Ladies. Bottom Line. Spocks Beard. and a million more ...I enjoyed that!

  6. Played lead guitar for a decade in bands. Took a punt on a bass because of my love of Rush and Geddy Lee and a few years later found myself with 4 mates, one a great drummer and the rest of us guitar players. I had a bass and we wanted to gig. 15 years later I'm still at it every week. Best thing that ever happened to me ....
  7. Yes on slower stuff when the 2 guitards play their keyboards. I usually play the 4 bass strings as the first 4 strings of a guitar chord. Played in different places it can be effective. Sometimes throw in a bit of flanger or wah to give a bit of sustain/drone. If it sounds good I'll do it, if not I don't.
  8. Rod Stewart destroy AGAIN ... "I don't want to talk about it" by Danny Whitten.
  9. Yes ... I have had some major GAS the last few days and seriously thought about investing a few bob in a bass that would not depreciate. I suppose the ultimate would be a 70's Jazz with block inlays. Yes, I am a bit of a slut for that kind of thing. However after having a very pleasant 20 minutes with a Rick 4003 yesterday I'm thinking buy one or these new and keep it for years and play the thing most weeks as well. Everybody will be happy.
  10. A lot better now you have made this post ...
  11. [quote name='paul h' post='1006668' date='Oct 30 2010, 08:32 PM']What was the Lakland P Fugde? Was it a Duck Dunn or Bob Glaub. I quite fancy a Glaub myself.[/quote] I know about the Dunn and Glaub, I think this was just a standard sunburst model though. tried some mex P's at PMT and they were pretty awful as was the service unfortunately.
  12. Checked out Guitar Guitar yesterday in Brum and was delighted to see such a great range of high end basses. I didn't bother to play anything with more than 4 strings or active but I was very impressed with a Lakland skyline Jazz. My gas for a P bass has disappeared now as I have tried 3 or 4 in the last week and not been impressed ( and I so desperately wanted to be ) infact the pick of the P's I tried was again the Lakland. Anyway I now have enormous GAS for a Ricky 4003. I had never played one before but fell in love instantly. I don't think I will be able to avoid buying one of these in the near future. I tried all this lovely gear through an Aguillar set up. Very, very nice. On top of it all the young bloke who served me was very helpful. I will be going back and probably buying ...

  14. I've spent days looking at this bass and I'm convinced it is made of cheese. This bass is too nice and too close to me ... I had literally been on BC a day or two when Wot's Jazz went, If I had had my bearings back then I would have had it.

  17. [quote name='BurritoBass' post='981928' date='Oct 8 2010, 07:27 PM']From a music point of view I'd love to have been involved in Stephen Stills Manassas but from longevity I'd like to go beyond the 2 records they made. So I'll go for The Byrds as they transcended so many genres. In fact I could just cut out the middle man and have Chris Hillman's bass playing life - that way I have all the bases (& indeed basses!) covered[/quote] Yes please .... [quote name='yorick' post='981956' date='Oct 8 2010, 07:56 PM']Van Halen, VH1 and VH2 era[/quote] Yes please again ... Personally playing with Neil Young would be the ultimate, but I would probably choose rhythm guitar for that gig.
  18. I was 1 when you did your last gig. Since the age of 17 I have practically gigged once a week every week. I'd really love to be doing this sh*t until the day I drop.
  19. [quote name='Colledge' post='981020' date='Oct 7 2010, 10:22 PM']i made a bass for my a-level,[/quote] Bloody hell ... I had to do English, Geography and Economics ....
  20. "fetch me a bible" (sic) ..... (shouts from garden)
  21. My older brothers really got into L42 when they were a real breakthrough act very early 80's and I imagine very hip . As a young teen I remember the endless 12" releases my brothers played but did enjoy some of their stuff. (Interestingly my brothers were fanatical Rush fans, which I am delighted to say is fact that has remained with us all to this day) Anywho ... I had no interest in bass but was aware of the slap phenomenon of Mr King. I saw them at the Birmingham Odeon as a 14 year old and thought they were great and then mid 80's at the NEC and was totally unmoved. Then I forgot about them. But ... a few years ago I took a punt on Retrogide, thought it was great and then saw them at the symphony hall on the tour and they were fantastic. Mrs Fudge and I are going again this Sunday. so in a word .... yes.
  22. growl is in the fingers .... Great vid.
  23. [quote name='thisnameistaken' post='975632' date='Oct 3 2010, 01:46 AM']That sounds like a back-handed compliment! Like "I bet you'd get a positive review in the NME"? [/quote] A double double double double double bluff
