  1. No, all interesting stuff @Andyjr1515, cheers. Maybe that strap button extension thing would make a difference, getting it further into that Goldilocks zone! I should say too, that one’s in Edinburgh because I asked them to get it up from one of their stores down south.... Now, if someone would just post one second hand.....
  2. I saw this on another forum, but not sure if it’d make much difference. Plus it might look a bit daft!
  3. I have. 🙂. I like it. Lovely neck to play, interesting tones out of it (although I’d prefer master volume and blend to 2 volumes) BUT yes, it’s a tad neck heavy. Better than any other semi I’ve tried though. It seems to have Hipshot licensed tuners so i don’t know if genuine USA Hipshot would help a bit. Possibly clutching at straws there. 🙂 It’s not cheap either obv.
  4. Just reviving this question in case anyone has any thoughts about the Lakland or any other semi I should look at.
  5. You’ve clearly got too many basses! 🙂. Nice to see all those G&Ls though. You don’t see the USA ones around much. You must have paid more than your fair share of import duty!
  6. Yeah, I'm sure Chris could sort it out easy enough. (That's one of Chris' own basses in my profile pic btw, if you didn't spot it). I guess though resale value of either will be less if they're sold with the neck of the other (if you know what I mean!). I tend to play the L2000 passive. I tried an ASAT once but found the body shape a bit odd (and a bit too much neck dive), but the L2000 body is great. (Oddly, I see my #12 neck has a 12" radius as opposed to your 7.5". I assumed the radius was fixed for each neck). How does the JB2 compare to your JB btw?
  7. The LB100 looks great fretless. I saw a black Tony Franklin fretless last weekend and I had a similar GAS attack. 🙂 I’ve always been quite curious about the JB2. I have an L2000 with the 1 5/8 neck and it’s great to play (although the tone can be a bit too distinctive sometimes). Will keep and eye out for what you do regarding selling it (and the neck). I’ve no money of course. If I did, I’d be inclined to put your LB100 maple neck on my L2000 and the L2000’s rosewood/black headstock neck onto the JB2. I can dream.....
  8. Is that a USA JB2? A JB2 with the 1 5/8” neck is an interesting proposition. Love the idea of a fretless LB100 too mind!
  9. What’s the nut width on this bass?
  10. Nordstrand's excellent Music Man Stingray replacement/upgrade pickup. They say same spec as Ernie Ball 70s Stingray pickup, less clanky than the modern ones. More here: https://nordstrandaudio.com/products/mm4-2-dual-coil I have one in my 2001 Stingray - definitely an upgrade on the original. (I seem to have misplaced one of the screws but I guess you can probably use the ones in your original pickup if you're upgrading. If not, I can try to get one from my tech for you). Retails at £100. Price includes P&P.
  11. Mint condition pedal. I'm new to the whole compression thing, so have bought a different one to try. No trades, sorry. Retails at £149. https://www.jhs.co.uk/products/effects-electronics/pigtronix-effects/pigtronix-philosopher-bass-compressor-micro Happy to post, included in the price. REDUCED to £75.
  12. Hi, Did you ever sell this? I’m vaguely interested in picking one up, if the price is right. They seem to be selling secondhand quite low on eBay just now. Not fair really as they’re nice basses....
  13. I have a hankering for a semi-acoustic bass and have been looking at the long scale Lakland Hollowbody. (I had one of the short scale ones a while ago. I liked it, but came to the conclusion I prefer 34” scale basses). I also like the Laklands because they have nice rounded edges on the body rather than the binding that you’ll often see on semi-acoustic basses. ANYWAY, my question to anyone who has or has tried one of these: how was/is the balance? Pretty much every 34” semi-acoustic bass I’ve tried has neck dive but hoping this one may be different? And/or is there any other semi-acoustics I should be looking at? Cheers!
