  1. Yet I've never understood the attraction to paint finish, where 1 bass looks exactly the same as any other of that description. Add to that a bolt-on neck that's a loose fit in the body; giving a muffled sound to the notes to my ears. Give me a good Warwick any day. Each to their own.
  2. Try finding Warwick basses you can try before buying. 5 is a glorious selection. I'm amazed we don't see more posts of summat like: "I want to try a Wal. Who near Brum has one?" At least with Yam or Ibanez you can always buy it from Thomman and send it back if you don't want it.
  3. That might explain a lot. If you're an upright player you don't have frets. So intonation is less important, because you'll adjust your fingering to tune the note to your ear. At the time of writing, electric basses were new and she implies adjustable bridges were an optional feature, so people at the time may possibly have been confused about what the adjustment is for.
  4. It also seems Ms Kay doesn't have confidence to describe how to adjust neck relief, so maybe she hasn't got a clue how to set up a bass at all.
  5. Sold a condenser pedal to Ian. All went smoothly with no hassles. Many thanks Ian.
  6. Nahh... this will be the left-handed version.. No good for me then. 🙃😜
  7. As new Bass Squeezer compressor, complete with original packaging and unused sticky rubber mat thingy. If you need a power supply, I can add in one, still in its box for an extra £5. Will post to anywhere at cost.
  8. WOW! That is stealth incarnate! It's so stealthy I can't even see it!
  9. If you use silicon sprays on any bass (or furniture) you will never be able to refinish it ever again. Silicon is a spray finisher's nightmare. You can never get rid of it and it repels paint or lacquer.

  11. The B3n isn't better, but its different. @Al Krow did a comparison some time back.
  12. A twist in the neck will cause the truss rod to not work correctly. Don't force the TR. If you do, there's a fair chance you'll break the rod or do other damage in the process. I've fixed a few necks, some worse than yours. Yes that neck is very fixable. It simply needs to be clamped in the right way and heat applied to the neck will help it get back in shape. Take it to a tech who knows what they're doing and it'll be fine.
  13. In the commercial world re-stocking or returns handling fees aren't unusual, but not where consumers are concerned. I can understand the reseller's frustration when he's ordered in an item especially on the request of a customer, only to have this, possibly obscure, item returned. But that's the risk they open themselves to when they start up a retail business.
