    Does anyone actually use their B string?

    There’s never a gig that I wish I wasn’t playing a 5, but there are plenty of gigs with a 4 that I wish I was...

    '54 Precision in Cash Converters...

    They had a Les Paul Signature in there too... I think someone just came in with their whole bass collection, or sadly passed away.
  4. A bargain - and in my hometown!

    New Yamaha Nathan East signature

    Give me all of their 80s catalogues with modern pickups and hardware, I'd probably buy all of them... 😂

    All they need is some white paint for at least two sales... 🤔

    New Yamaha Nathan East signature

    Good news for everyone (be it monetarily or hating the aesthetic) is it probably won’t ever be produced... It can be added to my long list of basses from the Yamaha LA custom shop I wish I could own, along with Pattituci’s 2 semi-hollow basses... 😩😢

    these teeny weeny amps - which one?

    My Eich T900 is way more portable than my BH250 ever was simply because it doesn't have the massive rubber feet. Maybe the 300 or 500s are an option?

    MRTCAT'S Feedback

    Tom bought my Ashdown BTA 200. He paid immediately and I delivered it to him the next day. A lovely chap, and yet another great basschatter!

    No Longer Comfortable to Play Jazz Basses

    I used to wear a metal Milanese loop band all the time, and that was occasionally noticeable for its dig-factor, but generally okay. This band gets most everyday wear now, mainly for not scratching up my laptop and being not too noticeable.

    No Longer Comfortable to Play Jazz Basses

    The first picture is where I end up on gigs when I’m on a jazz. You can clearly see it’s technically weaker, but the only way to make it comfortable. If I use the thumb behind technique (as in the P bass image) on the jazz it’s superemely uncomfortable after only a short while, but tonally sounds way better. I hope you find the answer!

    No Longer Comfortable to Play Jazz Basses

    You haven't changed where your thumb is when playing have you? I found the longer I played larger necks and uprights, the more I have my thumb behind the neck. Transitioning back to a smaller neck makes that thumb positioning feel uncomfortable to me. (And I'm in my early 20s!)

    No Longer Comfortable to Play Jazz Basses

    Not a fan of jazz bass necks - I've only kept one 4 string jazz which is my Sadowsky Metro. Went and found the biggest neck on a P bass I could that was fiesta red. Much bigger tone in a chunky neck too...
