  1. Tricky one raffles. They are running it to benefit a registered charity so they should be ok. Fairly sure if it's run online they need to register with their local authority. Could easily be wrong though. Tempting to enter regardless.
  2. It's the old version of the American Standard Pickup, just called American Standard Pickup. I think they changed the Am Std P Bass pickups to the 62 version but kept the 'Am Std' pickup for the special run Mex basses (Classic 50, Roadworn, etc). I have the honey one, which like yours is fantastically light. So light I put resolite tuners on it so it balances better. That changed the tone a huge amount actually, much brighter, I have to roll off 1/4 turn of tone to get the pre tuner change tone. I also changed the pickup to the SD SPB1, but that's just to get a certain sound.
  3. I noticed that as well. Then again I already have a few options for those on my board, when I'm done travelling, so I probably shouldn't get greedy.
  4. I take it that's just for the B1on series pedals?
  5. I agree, it's 60 quid in most places now, so my order is going in this weekend.
  6. Actually I was just talking about the G1 when it comes to clean blends. I find a lot of guitar effects, especially drives will sound good on bass if they have a clean blend. Not so worried with the B1. I did also download both sets of manuals to check out the parameters. But basically I didn't like the sound of the G1 much at all, so that solved the problem.
  7. Bit of a scout round, most of the G1 effects don't have a clean blend, plus, I don't like how it sounds in the demos. Maybe I've been a bit spoilt with tube combos. But... the B1 sounds pretty good in the demos, so I think I'll go for that seeing as I'll be playing bass 80% of the time.
  8. Thanks, that's what I was thinking. I'll have to check out the G1 effects list to see if they have a clean blend.
  9. Thread resurrection! I'm going to be living out of a suitcase for a while and need a headphone amp. I'd like one box for both Guitar and Bass though. The B1 or G1 looks to be the best solution for the price. Can you load Guitar patches onto the B1-Four?
  10. I ran my guitar into my Walkabout (at home) for a while. It's sound could best be described as 'jazz guitar'. I assume Mr Homme is using ampeg valve amps but maybe not with bass cabs? Seems to be a lot more cross over with valve amps, with fender bassman, hiwatt and marshalls all being used for both.
  11. You are in exalted company, he trashed Faith No More as well. Absolute verbal diarrhea. http://www.pushstuff.co.uk/mmlives/faithnomore040688.html
  12. I'm no expert, but isnt that a non stienberger bridge and head piece? Also the fingerboard looks strange, shouldn't it be resin not rosewood?
  13. I didn't screen shot it, but I do remember the name, and can find his facebook page if the OP needs it.
  14. Seller seems to have removed it from sale plus an epihone rivoli he had up.
  15. Never seen the bass version in the flesh. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193724052913
