    How not to sell a bass

    Well, it is a Rob Allen bas and it is in very good condition. 😄

    How not to sell a bass

    That's what I see now too. Someone's messaged him or he's seen sense. End of thread.
  4. I'm probably doing the guy a favour in posting this. He hasn't done himself any. "Rob Allen fretless bass in very good condition." That's the info on it. Oh, and what you might call a picture. So dark you can only just see the bass. And he wants £2500 for it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rob-Allen-Mb2-4-string-lined-fretless-bass/173728105007?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3Dc73ba94e462e48c99f88c8b9860ba866%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26sd%3D303021382893%26itm%3D173728105007&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982

    Steinberger Doubleneck

    The necks are the wrong way round. Mike Rutherford always had the guitar on top. Oh, hang on. Geddy always had the bass on top. Hmm.

    An electroacoustic thing.

    I suppose we all take the same instrument and individually make many different sounds with that same instrument. It would be interesting to hear what different people make with the same sound you have recorded here. Essentially you are using the printer and an editor as the instrument and creating your own sound with it in the same way we would with a bass guitar. Boundaries being shifted again. Always good to see that.

    Farewell to HMV

    When I were a lad growing up in Glasgow the places to buy records were Listen and Blogs. Always had lots of the right records. Then along came Virgin and that saw the end of Listen and Blogs. Then Virgin went to the retail graveyard but surviving through all that was HMV. I haven't seen an HMV in Edinburgh or Newcastle since the last administration and I, like so many others, buy music online now. As others have said, I'm not sure they will survive this round. Mike Ashley might well be waiting to hoover everything up but he has some very interesting ideas about the retail industry as he testified here.

    Ibanez SR 5 String

    Ibanez basses are well regarded. The only problem I have with them is the necks are very slim, front to back. You'll get a good bass though. Alternatives are Corts or ESP LTD. More than likely all made in the same factory. The Corts have very nice necks, a bit deeper than the Ibanez necks.. LTDs have quite slim necks as well.

    Status Serial No. In Felt Tip??

    It's an S1 Classic from early 2000s. They had the Board 100 pre amp which was the very basic model with pickup pan, volume and treble cut. Details in the link below. http://www.statii.com/status_cats/reviews/3/index.html

    That's been up for quite a while. It certainly fits with the timing of this model's availability. I notice he has changed the title as he was originally selling it as an S2. I messaged him to say it wasn't, his reply said he checked the receipt which said it was an S2. Might have been missold to him as that. Price is more than twice as much as it should be. Still someone might fall for it.

    Electronic/Ambient - Thirty Ghosts

    Nicely done. The second one stands out more for me, Passing through the black abyss and What if I saw Angels most of all. I think releasing shorter albums more often might be a way to go in this day and age where you're forgotten about after a few weeks if nothing new comes out. Actually The Last Light Year is on right now. That has a nice feel to it.

    Eude throws down the gauntlet

    A few lessons from Scott and he could be a bit like Andy's bass for eude, quite good.
