    Vintage V4 Reissued "Tony Butler - alike"

    It looks like you have a regular V4 maple neck on there, which is a good thing in my book. It's the same neck minus the very yellow vintage tint. Just a thought - if you really like that bass then a set of Gotoh Res-O-Lite GB640 will be a direct fit and shave off half a pound. It will feel like more though as the bass will balance sooo much better.

    Two Bass Hit. Opinions? Options?

    What about just putting a couple of dots with a Sharpie pen on your volume dial on the amp? Change bass, adjust, repeat. Easy as, erm, dot-to-dot..😗

    NBD: Limelight '67 LPB Precision

    That looks absolutely stunning! The right shade of LPB too. Beautiful. Seeing this has really got the old cogs turning. I may have to give Mark a ring myself..

    Tina Weymouth BBC bass programme in Jan

    I just watched it, bloody fantastic! I've had people texting me for days asking if I'd seen, finally got round to it. I love Tina Weymouth, a proper bass player. Great to see Herbie Flowers too. Really great to learn about Bernard Edwards technique. I really didn't know he used his fingers and thumb like a pick. I must try that myself as I always drop the damned things too! My tomorrow night is Stewart Copeland on drums. I don't fancy the guitar one though for some reason...

    Bass Collection, anyone?

    I was very tempted by the Bruce Thomas Profile bass but every picture I've seen of one has the pole pieces on the D and G really out of alignment with the strings. The tort pickguard is cut wrong on every one, with the outside poles of the A and D directly on top of each other. Check out how a real P has it's pickups positioned for reference. You don't notice this on the first Profile Bass run with the blank covers of course. Lovely looking and sounding bass but considering all the work they put in with the prototypes getting it 'right', that is a massive schoolboy error! Does kind of make me wonder what else they've missed..

    Recommend me a solid 4 string BEAD option

    I had a P bass tuned to BEAD. Played and sounded excellent. Ernie Ball Slinky singles: .135 .100 .075 .055 for a well balanced set.

    This is very sad, but...........

    I had my retirement in my 20s and 30s. Now I have to work until I die. Good yeah?
  14. He smart enough to create a top team around him, listen to working musicians and give them what they wanted. With visual appeal in spades.
  15. Yes, yes and yes to all of the above! Limelight PJ + Roadworn Jazz - I totally get that now. 😉
