  1. that looks something very beyond great. regardless of the reason, it's the right color. are the frets filed smooth or was it done as a lined fretless?
  2. from my ebay observations going back a looong time, UK people regularily get VC's - although it might be more guitars than basses. other users included the duranduran guy, the bowie hero's guy, the bebop deluxe guitar player, and an irish guitar lord. google is an amazing thing. yes, yours is lovely, and Harvey & Joe are both very helpful people.
  3. VERY nice - I've got some VC's, and have had a chance to play a current Veillette 12 (guitar) as well, which was stunning in every way. so I'm quite sure you are not overstating your satisfaction.
  4. unfaithful rewrite of "I Put a Spell on You", on the link below. it's voodoo, child. there ain't nothing you can do.
  5. at7's have less gain than an ax7, au7's have far less. so even when pushed there may be less distortion than an ax7 at lower settings. slightly different voltages as well. I'd expect an at7 in V1 and as driver would yeild a "better" result than an au7, but as with all things of this nature, it is a matter of taste. generally I don't think it is worthwhile/better, but it would depend on the amp & ears involved.
  6. for about the price of a JJ you should be able to pick up RFT's which are pretty darn nice. read the comparisons at www.watfordvalves.com
  7. a 12at7 would likely do the same thing with less drop in volume. might not matter so much in a 400.
  8. WWHHHAATTT!!?? the tubes have a designation - pre and power - and any that match that designation are acceptable. most people prefer new old tubes of European/UK/US manufacture. "genuine mesa" tubes would have been made by someone else, with their name printed on the glass.
  9. I'm not addicted - but the vox custom fit's right in with my alembic and veillette - citrons. it is a really nice bass.
  10. aah, when you click on "custom" you get a pic of sheehan with my bass. and english translation too. not that I can't don't the gist of the french, je suis beceaup francais parlait
  11. you "here" link opens to my vox bass. Ok, not mine, but that's what i've got.
  12. hmm, my matso-vox is a different animal all together, including the headstock which is "traditional" vox.

  14. the "non-descript" ones are the good ones, although they aren't considered real voxes because they were made in Japan instead of Italy I have a Vox custom neck through - Billy Sheehan apparently had one for a while (gift from bandmates) but it now resides in one of those hard rock cafes. quite like an Aria SB, also from matsumoku.
  15. that's not self-promotion, that is a Public Service Announcement.
