  1. I just got a used 2008 Hardcore aged Sandberg California off a pawn shop. Plays and sounds great! I had two Californa TMs before. This is a better playing and sounding bass for sure!
  2. I installed a new jack on mine. Got it from https://www.cliffuk.co.uk/products/xrp/index.htm I got a plastic plate first. I later got the metal one. I had to drill that one. Installed a switchcraft jack.
  3. I just got a used non graphite Status Energy 5. It's been modded with an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp. Should I do anything to protect the finish where the clear coat has been worn off? The bass is really easy to play. A bit on the heavy side though .
  4. I used to have an ESP LTD B-1004se stringed BEAD. It had a 34 to 36.25 scale length. I really prefer the playability of the Ibanez EHB . I tried to play similar on the EHB
  5. First EHB second Cirrus .
  6. I recorded the ehb and a peavey cirrus. They sound similar I think.
  7. I just got mine! I really like it. I had to lower the pickups and change the string height. I know the dealer and he didn't do anything to is setup wise. He knows I do my own setups. The only thing I would change is the locking output jack. I would rather have a regular one. Maybe I'll change the pickups later on. Right now I don't think it's necessary.
  8. Hello! I just did a mod to my Swedish made Jazz bass. It used to have passive volume and a Stellartone - tone knob. Now it has an East J-tone. Passive/active with a push pull on the tone knob. Stacked volume/blend knob. Stacked bass/trebble knob. Really easy installation! Before Nice padded box! I just cut the old control plate out. Just screw the wires to the terminals Played it the day after with the band. Great!!!
  9. I just bought a Swedish handmade jazzclone. The Brand is called Lighthouse. They tried producing highend basses a couple of years ago. I have two. Hipshot bridge and tuners. Glockenklang preamp and Lundgren (swedish) vintage jazz pickups. Really nice!
  10. I did a quick recording to show the thight B-string. Played with a pick both, neck and bridge pickups, then some order with fingers.
  11. just got a Bacchus TF-5 Ash with Bacchus custom humbuckers. Does anyone know anything about these pickups?
  12. Hi! I have a Vester Platin. I replaced both jazz pickups and put an EMG BQC in it. Works great!
  13. I just got my first fan fret bass. It's a lovely LTD B-1004se. It's going to be strung BEAD.

    Fender HM5

    I just got this Fender HM5. Bought it online on the swedish version of Craigs list. Can anyone tell me more about it? I think it was made during 1988 to 1991 in Japan for the US market. it has a five way switch, volume and TBX Tone.
  15. I'm considering getting a LWA500 for my home rig.
  16. I have had it for a couple of years now. I had an Ashdown Little Giant, a Markbass F1, and an Augilar Tone hammer before it. The Ashdown was a Joke!, more like a toy. The Auguilar was ok, but I really didn't like it. Well built though! The Markbass was good, but the Warwick is louder and I really like the layout of the controls better. Love the mute switches! I run it through a TKS 2128 cab. It has 2 12" and one 8" speakers. It's really really loud even when the volume knob is at 10 o'clock. No one is talking about the LWA head, so maybe I got the only good one? Anyone?
  17. I just bought this at an online auction. I got a good price. I can't find any reviews or opinions on the bass online. Any mim Dimension owners here? I think it plays great. It seems to be out of stock everywhere in Europe. Seems to discontinued at the Fender website. Here are the specs (from amazon)[list] [*][color=#111111]A Fender designed Standard Dimension humbucking bridge pickup serves up punchy, articulate tones with plenty of projection elegant look that's all its own[/color] [*][color=#111111]Players will appreciate the fast play and high performance of a maple neck, complete with a 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with medium jumbo frets[/color] [*][color=#111111]The Standard Dimension offset body design is not only balance, but also offers remarkable playing comfort[/color] [*][color=#111111]Two knurled chrome knobs deliver dedicated volume and tone control for the discerning bassist seeking perfectly dialed-in signature sound[/color] [/list]
  18. Thanks for the reply It's a really good deal, so I'll get it without seeing it I have a fancy Mono gigbag for two basses. Since I almost never use it, I figure I'll sell it and get something cheaper.
  19. Peavey gigbag for two basses. I found one on sale at a local peavey supplier in sweden. No picture in the ad. I can't find any info on the internet about it. Has anyone seen/ used one?
  20. [quote name='Rikki_Sixx' timestamp='1505214347' post='3370243'] These look lovely, especially your black one. I love a Jazz and these have enough little tweaks and differences to seem like altogether different instruments. The necks look great on both, will have to keep an eye on these guys! [/quote] The neck is thicker than my other basses. I compared it to my Stingray 5.
  21. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1505154349' post='3369892'] Is that a euphemism? Very nice-looking basses. [/quote] Spelling misstake. |-O
  22. One more Lighthouse bass at my house! I get to keep it for a while and decide if I'm going to buy it. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B9h9OKDW8CmKRmdUaHJ1V3F2c0U
  23. [quote name='tom1946' timestamp='1504295389' post='3364027'] I've heard that the volume is a bit 'on off' on these and while they play like butter it can get a bit messy. (Sorry I'll get me coat) Looks seriously nice, I love the neck! Glad you're happy with it. [/quote] Sorry I think i'm too swedish for the first joke. Didn't get it. The butter part I got
