  1. Thank you for the time you spent on these Neil, what a great thing to do and share. Kudos 👍
  2. [quote name='bluejay' timestamp='1372369990' post='2125088'] I've got a few photos of her too, with BigJim on bass. I'll eventually get them ready for Flickr too. By the way, PJ, none of us are BC admins, just dedicated forum members Sorry for not saying hi to you in person in the end, I kept meaning to come over to you but never managed. [/quote] No worries, I'm sure we will meet again at some point... I'm there next week (10th), cheers, PJ
  3. [quote name='Happy Jack' timestamp='1372332962' post='2124385'] For The Junkyard Dogs, follow the link below. Really nice to meet you PJ, and I loved that Wal. [/quote] I'm there every two weeks (other bass duties permitting) I will bring the fretless one next time. Bring the 5 if you come again. Let me know when you are gigging there or locally too. Here's a picture of the two Wal girls :0) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=531906146859732&set=pb.268881693162180.-2207520000.1372333116.&type=3&theater
  4. Haven't been on for a while, my apologies. Will set that right :0) A couple of the BC admins where at the Jam in Greenford last night and being of a certain age, I forgot the names! It's on the tip of my...... No! Anyway, they played a great short set of tunes! Can you help me please? What was the band and who were the bass player and guitarist on stage left (bass player who was playing guitar) Thank You PJ
  5. I think I found the answer. It's a Fender Jazz Special (27-6400) and looks like they only did that model in 1987. I checked the Fender manuals and found it. Thanks for all the help guys PJ
  6. [quote name='Musky' post='801997' date='Apr 10 2010, 06:32 PM']You can't date an E serial MIJ from the serial number alone - 84-87 is as close as you're going to get with just that info. I'm not sure exactly when the Jazz Bass Special came out, but that might cut down the possibilities somewhat. I've got the vague recollection that the contemporary series (which your bass would have been part of - it's got the black headstock and same logo anyway) came out about '86, though I may well be wrong about that. Other than that you've got to strike lucky and get a date in the neck pocket somewhere (which might be in a japanese format). I don't think you can date them from pot codes. Sorry that's a bit vague, but then I'm a bit vague at the best of times. [/quote] I got me Sherlock Magnifying Glass out but no luck unfortunately, you've definitely given me some ideas though now. I didn't know it was called the contemporary series, so that's a great start. Cheers PJ

  8. [quote name='chris_b' post='801960' date='Apr 10 2010, 06:01 PM']The fender website?[/quote] Hey Chris, thanks for the reply. I tried the Fender site and all I could find was with the E + 6 number serial number it would have been 1984-87. That seems a bit on the vague side :0) What year were you born Mr Phillips? "oooh 1960 something..." Thanks for the post mate Cheers pj

  11. [quote name='27 frets' post='721629' date='Jan 22 2010, 08:49 PM']Hi I'd also suggest looking at comments on the Yita Music carbon bows (available on eBay), on the 'recommend me a bow' thread: [url="http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=64167"]http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=64167[/url] I've been well impressed with mine - cost just over £100.[/quote] Thanks 27 frets, and for the link too Cheers pj
  12. [quote name='PedalB' post='721769' date='Jan 22 2010, 11:35 PM']Hi- just come across this thread, first you need to choose between French or German bows ,both have their merits. If you think your going to need to be able produce tremolo and generally have an 'agile' bowing technique then this is easier to do with the french style bow.The German Style allows a greater pressure to be put on the string. Cheap bows are a waste of money weather wooden or carbon fibre its the horse hair and rosin that makes the string sound.[/quote] Thanks for that PedalB Cheers pj
  13. [quote name='subaudio' post='713482' date='Jan 15 2010, 10:29 AM']Hi PJ As far as French and German bows go, the main difference is in the Frog (which holds the hair at the end you hold) a French bow has a smaller frog and is the same as a violin bow and is held between the thumb and fingers, a German bow's frog is much larger and is held with two fingers inside the Frog Images taken from [url="http://www.uptonbass.com/Upton-Bass-UB-Workshop-Double-Bass-Bow-FRENCH-GERMAN/"]here[/url][/quote] Two fingers inside the frog. Now I haven't heard that expression for a while Thank you for that subaudio and for the link. It's all new to me and I really appreciate all the help. Thank you pj
