  1. I have a 1986 Musician, its beat up and stinking in mojo, you can see why they call them the Japanese Alembics, and also why Dave Swift snaps them up when they are sold. I'm not sure I could cope with it live to be honest as it's a bit overwhelming but if it's good enough for Sting and Adam Clayton then maybe I should give it a go. 

  2. Went down to Warwick intending to buy a MusicMan or a Warwick, came away with this. It just caught my eye and when I played it it was one of those 'you're coming home with me' things. First impressions it's a lot superior to the Fender equivalent I had a couple of years ago, I'm guessing due to the Aguilars and the preamp, and the neck is a lot more forgiving as well. I got up early on a Saturday to play it so there must be something there.

  3. They were great beginner instruments in the 80s, rated over Squiers. Seems to me though all you have to do is add the word "Matsumoku" to anything and it doubles its value. I love 80s basses and have a few hanging on my wall - buy but don't get ripped off.

  4. That new model looks awful, they should do a range based on what they’ve done with the SB1000. I had a RSB Deluxe back in the 80s and it was phenomenal, neck like lightning. Last year I got a ‘86 R80 which is probably the most playable bass I’ve ever owned. MASSIVE opportunity here for a forward-thinking CEO to make a huge impact.

    oof! Very nice. Intrigued with piezo in conjunction with its EMCs or are they Warwicks own?

    Pretty sure it’s a Fishman, looks identical to the one I had on a Spector a while back. More powerful than I expected but has dedicated volume and tone with Centre detente so easy to control.
