  1. I dont gig anymore. But always (even for small pub gigs) had at least one spare bass, spare wireless system (I still have two identical Senheiser units) , DI incase the amp went down, tools and an old set of strings. At last count having abandoned Amps I had a Ampeg SCR DI in case the Helix went bang.
  2. h sweet lordy.. I currently own @hiram.k.hackenbacker's Natural Deacon tribute, if I ever get one made myself something like this will be on my list (with a 70's vibe)
  3. I'm completely the opposite. Started on a P bass, have owned... oooh.. many - Fenders (70's, 90's, 2000's, US/Japanese/Mexican), Squiers, Japanese copies, bitsas.. tried branching out with Warwicks, Ibanez's, Spectors, Deans.. and came full circle. There are P basses and there are P basses as you found out. Nicest playing one I owned was a Mexican first generation "black logo" I bought from here, next to the 1976 I used to own, and the Limelight I recently got (again from here). A lot of it is down to the neck/nut width. tried my mates Mex Classic and hated the surfboardlike nut width, prefer my 96 Squier which has a 40mm nut similair to the 70's US models. Sweet spot for me is a 40mm nut.
  4. Rather like some "creators" on YouTube, once you have put yourself out there in public portraying yourself in a certain light you are inviting criticism. I am in no way a psychologist, and my view is my own and does not reflect the opinions of Basschat or my fellow members -but I have my own theories, and believe it falls down to one of two possibilities. Either he is a vulnerable individual and genuinely believes he is creating masterpieces,in which case someone close to him should be trying to dissuade/protect him (as the parent of avulnerable mentaly disabled teenage girl, I have to be that gate guardian to keep her safe from herself and others daily, and will be till I draw my last breath). Or he is a cynical chap, portraying a persona, wherein people will pay silly money for a butchered instrument or his book due to lack of knowledge and experience (taken in by possibly self created feedback) or to have a good laugh because both are so bad it almost becomes a trope... or possibly buy out of pitty believing the first scenario is the case. I have no concrete evidence of either of these theories, and they remain that.
  5. Wel. Thats a thing isnt it. I do hope the pages are absorbent and the ink waterproof.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. And to be clear that is screwing to both positions - not like it’s snapped - and the rod seems tight in the body.
  10. 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..
  11. 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.
  12. forgot it was still up here.. no sorry mate it sold off basschat.
  13. I recomend listening to the alltime classic "A night in Langley".
  14. 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..)
  15. 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.
