  1. Can't comment as yet but I have a set of EB Group flats that I'm putting on my SR5 this weekend. I felt they'd be a safe bet because, after trying all the strings I like best on Fenders, I've found EB rounds work best on my Stingrays 🤷 I'll let you know how I get on...
  2. I keep coming back to look at this for the warm fuzzy feelings it gives me 😊 Out of my financial league unfortunately... GLWTS
  3. Thanks, I didn't know that. I do know that the bass I'm looking at here isn't made in Germany like their top end instruments. As long as the bass is good and made well I don't suppose it matters where it's made. Looks good anyway.
  4. Always try to play with people who are better than you, it's the greatest way to learn. - top tip from Jaco Pastorius (Paraphrased by me because my memory is crap 😊)
  5. Does anyone have any experience with GEWA basses? I keep being drawn back to look at this hybrid. Made in Asia (China?) I believe.. Can't really find any in depth knowledge about them so far. What do you think? https://gewastrings.com/product/23674/gewa-double-bass-premium-line-semi-solid-model.html

  8. I love Morrissey. Always will. The Smiths were such a pivotal part of my navigation through the 80s as a teenager.. I don't agree with his old fashioned political views at all, which are much the same as most of my elder family members unfortunately, but no love lost there either. As for The Simpsons.. "Hamburgers are Homicide"!! Come on, that's hilarious!! 👍
  9. It's not a dull discussion point if someone ends up disappointed by their purchase. I'm just trying to save you a headache later on too. My intentions are well meant friend.. The MIM Classic 50s Lacquer Precision was only offered in Black and White Blonde finishes. Fact. They were more expensive than the regular MIM Classic 50s Precisions that had a polyurethane finish, which were available in 2 tone Sunburst (the bass you have for sale), Fiesta Red and Honey Blonde. I'm not Mexican, just well informed. 😉
  10. Lovely bass, but these had a poly finish not nitro mate.
  11. Best: After a gibbering frenzy of basses in and out this year which reached it's crescendo with the acquisition of a rare lightweight 1991 Stingray 5, I now have my "Excalibur". Worst: I bought a used MacBook and a Focusrite interface to finally get into the world of home creations. They are probably great but I haven't had time to even turn them on yet. An additional expense I could do without right now but at least they're there for when I do! Plans for 2021: Total gear abstinence (don't laugh) and begin to get involved with the monthly composition fun and games on here. Lessons learned: Playing all the time keeps the GAS voices quiet!
  12. I sent one on Monday arrived Tuesday fine. Interparcel premium via UPS.

    How are you finding the Ditto X2 @ped? I'm thinking of getting one and I don't want anything complicated. Would be nice to have someone to jam with, even if it's me 😄 Pros and cons?
  14. "I just loved your bass, I could feel it inside my pus*y.." This was actually said to me during a load out once. A very pretty yet hammered girl. I was stone cold sober (driving) and honestly didn't know which way to look or what to say other than "thanks" I'm alright at playing rock n roll, always been crap at being it!
  15. £700 posted Really really properly last time price drop ☺️
  16. Sinead O'Brien. She's my favourite new artist. It's almost like she's the Irish granddaughter of The Fall 👌
  17. "SCHTEPP IN TOIME!! SCHTEPP IN TOIME!!" 🤣🤣 But I wouldn't have it any other way though. Loved MP as a kid as my kids do now.
  18. I suggest this too. I'm only halfway through but it's proving to be a very nice surprise.
  19. Looks interesting. From the title I expected to see one of these..
