  1. Wel. Thats a thing isnt it. I do hope the pages are absorbent and the ink waterproof.
  2. True. But I could send it back and they could claim its due to something I've done, in which case it's a "my word against theirs" situation,so I end up paying out on postage both ways for nothing. The neck is the fender "heel access/cross head nut" design suplier told them they were dual action rods in them (you can get truss rods that are dual ation with a fender cross head heel adjustment - if that was the case unless there was a catastrophic failure the rod wouldnt be able to be screwed in and out. And if they are single action they souldnt have to be screwed 2cm into the neck to start working. Rather bizarre.
  3. Well they were as good as their word with the partial refund - and agreed with me that their suplier may have tried to pull a fast one. I've managed (with the addition of a lot of spacers) to get it workable. It's a shame as overall the neck is well carved and finished. Guess mine was a 5pm on Friday neck.
  4. I have figured if I can add (and find) enough washers (the rod screws right out) it is inducing a backbow when tightened. But there is no way this is a dual action truss rod. NorthWest have offered to either have it sent back to them (at my expense) or a 50% refund. I've opted for the latter as I can make it workable, and its money (and hassle) to send it back. Will see if they are as good as their word. Ive bought stuff (mainly lacquer) from them in the past and had no issues, but this has really put me off getting a neck from them again.
  5. And to be clear that is screwing to both positions - not like it’s snapped - and the rod seems tight in the body.
  6. It was bought through eBay so I have contacted them there and will be returning it. It is supposed to be a dual action rod but I’ve never seen a dual action rod do what’s shown in the pictures..
  7. I bought a Jazz neck from them via ebay recently to pop on one of my two Squier P's. NEVER AGAIN. Frets tarnished - I mean BADLY tarnished Truss rod. Fender heal end cross style. Turned.. and turned... and turned... disapeared a good 2 cm into the body before doing anything, then became super tight with little effect. Backed it out expecting it to be a removable nut like a fender hoping to put a couple of washers in there... no. no its not. the nut is part of the truss rod, almost like a cheap far eastern one way truss rod disguised as a fender one. Paid £125 for this piece of junk. Unfortunately I had already done some work (rounding fretboard edges, drilling holes for tuners etc etc) so I cant send it back, but it is trash. For comparrison I bought a no name far eastern Jazz neck (maple with black blocks in amber tint) for £40 ish and the QC and fit and finnish dribble all over this from a great height. NOPE. not again.
  8. forgot it was still up here.. no sorry mate it sold off basschat.
  9. I recomend listening to the alltime classic "A night in Langley".
  10. They look like vintage late 70's/early 80's Ibanez ones - the Roadster RS900's had them, possibly the Blazers too. If they are, they are worth more than the neck (though that is not exactly a high goal to hit..)
  11. Isn't he the guy who isn't Sammy Hagar...? (I'll grab my Van Hagar Club coat...) On a side note I cant stand Kiss (sorry Kiss fans) and Gene Simmonds in particular - he grates against my nerves like a titanium cheesegrater. Its all in search of publicity. Nothing more. I remeber seeing Carol Kay trying to teach him how to play bass in a video. It was painful.
  12. I have owned a Warwick Vampyre, a Spector Performer, Two Warwick Streamers, A Spector Ck-4 Rex, A dean Explorer type think, Two Thunderbirds, a 90's Aria Pro, Vintage and modern Ibanez's (RS900VT and SR305EB) and a hell of a lot of Jazz's and P basses. And I keep going back to my P basses. When I pick up a P I just want to play. Some of the others have been more exiting/more versatile/fancier but I am happiest with a passive P bass. They may be just tools to some but if you are not "feeling it" then you aren't going to be inspired, regardless of how expensive/bootique/flash/well respected your bass is. Lets face it, P basses have one soundscape, are not particularly fancy to look at and don't have any bells and whistles. But when I pick one up its like slipping on your favourite pair of walking shoes.
  13. God that is gorgeous.. all it needs is a mirrored pickguard and some manner of bladed Jazz pickup in that empty cavity and you have instant Phil Lynott..
  14. I BELIEVE from what I've heard he winds his own
  15. If you get the chance based on this bass, I would seriously consider buying a Limelight or getting one made. Finnish is great, feel is great, and the pickups sound fantastic.
