    51 P PUP cover

    Don't know if the guitar version is the same size as the bass, if so these may fit: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NECK-PICKUP-COVER-FOR-FENDER-TELECASTER-ETC-CHROME-BLACK-GOLD/191496827037?hash=item2c9619b09d:m:mvQNdektJVE-nW5MaQ8OyXA

    Do you remember your first bass...

    A Sunburst Gibson EB2 from 1962, acquired for £50 in 1976. Sold for £100 at one of the pre-cursers to cash converters in Leeds in the 80's, who always had some interesting basses in their packed windows. Every lunchtime I'd walk around these shops and see what new stock they had. Come to think of it got my JD Supernatural Roadie from one of them for £350 a few years later.

    Clever in the way the luthier has combined drum 'n' bass into the same instrument....

    How was your gig last night?

    2 gigs over the weekend, the first at the Old Wharfe in Langport. A guy I met on JMB needed a bassist for a project he is running, it's an open mic with a difference in that the house band knows in advance what the singers will be singing so we get a couple of rehearsals in beforehand. So we got a chance to rehearse Summertime, Less is More (Joss Stone),Your Heart is as Black as the Night (Gardot/Hart), A Million Dreams (The Showman), To Love Somebody, Steal My Kisses, Out of the Woods, Son of a Preacher Man, Sexual Healing and Teardrops. This month there were the house singer who is very good, and 2 others, one who did his own stuff (6 songs) and another who works as a waitress at the venue who did 2, one with the band. It works very well, we do it monthly, the venue is full and we levy a £3 a head entry fee and get fed too! Second gig at a Wine Bar in Castle Cary with the Americana band( only 3rd gig this year), tiny venue, small but appreciative audience and nicely paid too. Just very hot in the corner of a cellar...
