    With my os6 guitar i felt that the scale difference was there to aid erganomics primarily instead of bieng all about string tension and it feels very natural, you dont really notice the fan but it eases some finger strain in the upper registers and makes t hings very comfortable. Im hoping the bass has a similar feel.

    They seem to have tried a few different preamp and pickup options with the prototype, definitely seen a darkglass tone capsule and nordstrand & bartolini pickups so far, itll be interesting to see the final specs.

    hopefully this means we are nearing an announcement.
  7. this is just to see if there is anyone interested, my band may be looking for a good bass player with the stamina for proper classic bay area influenced thrash. north west based, rehearse in Preston, pro attitude band with pro gear and a solid history and reputation. it would be to replace me, i havent left yet but i dont like to leave anyone in the lurch so im putting my feelers out at the moment hopefully to have a smooth transition with minimal impact. if anyone might be interested please get in touch and i can pass on more details and links etc. cheers folks.

    im not 100% sure but i think its the PS37-30, i cant seem to find the spec anywhere to confirm the size of mine is approx 320x400x195mm

    Yeah its a pickfoam insert, like lots of squares so you can pick out the shape you want

    i picked up a skeleton case, its super tough and a perfect fit, i paid around £40 i think, doesnt mess with my settings too which is nice.

    Will do. Hopefully it wont take long to ship to the uk.

    thanks, i think ill pick up the chorus and give it a go, its cheap enough for a punt :^)

    good idea, nice and simple too. i was also thinking a compressor circuit or possibly even a modulation of some kind would be handy, i have seen some other basses with built in extras, the tm stevens funk machine coming to mind. im sure there are pitfalls with that kind of thing introducing noise though and being a big battery drain too.
  15. I picked up a 4 string ibanez btb (400 i think) recently as i wanted something with a 35" scale for downtuning. After getting used to the scale and string spacing i have decided i dont like the eq and happen to have a spare aguilar obp2 lying around. The plan is to switch to the 2 band aguilar and replace the pickup blend pot with a 5 way rotary selector so i can have series parallel pickup configuration options. That leaves me with a spare pot (or 2 if i put the preamp on a stacked pot) So i can blank it off which would be fine but im thinking are there any additional mods that i can put in there and use the space for a pot or switch? Just looking for interesting ideas really that will work nicely alongside the aguilar preamp. Any input would be appreciated. Cheers.
