    D'addario chromes

    Chromes are best not cut down in length when fitting, it might look like too many winds on the post but it's most certainly the best way to do it. They are also more likely to survive a few taking offs and putting back on again.

    D'addario chromes

    Always found them very smooth and slinky. Maybe higher tension than what you're used to.

    Loose paint on cutaways. Is it fixable?

    I have just fixed the very same problem on a Telecaster. As well as being loose, there was a very visible crack through which I was able to get some Titebond wood glue. This was applied using a pin, once I had a fair bit in there, I used masking tape to apply pressure to the repaired section and force it back against the wood. Obviously the cracks in the paint are still visible but the paint is now nice and firm.

    Best Bass for under £300

    My daughter got herself an Ibanez bass (not sure of the model) with a hardcase for £100. Total bargain, I've set it up for her and would happily gig it.

    £65 for a set up.?

    I allow between 1.5-2 hours, which might seem like a long time but it's not something to be rushed. Also, I almost always end up masking the entire fret board, prior to any cleaning /polishing of frets.

    £65 for a set up.?

    I normally charge £35 for a set up. Typically this will include adjustments to the nut slots, truss rod and string height. Lubricant where required. A thorough clean. Fret polish and board treatment. Strings not included in the price.

    Gig bag recommendations...

    I've not regretted my purchase of the Mono Sleeve and will be getting another for my back up bass, in the not too distant.

    Pick Up change...Recommendation please!

    Like Dom in Somerset, I'm really impressed with Entwistle. I've fitted them in to customer's instruments and my own. Don't be put off by the low price, they really are up there with some of the much more expensive pick ups that I've tried.
