  1. Read the blurb, it's all explained here you foolish man...😉 It plays fast and fluently because I re cut and filed the nut so the strings start at a milimicrobe off the fingerboard; meaning they make a note the instant you lay a fingertip on them however lightly you touch.
  2. Yes please: old, reliced, colours of all hues but one ( see below) No Ta: natural, sunburst and anything by a certain guitar improver.
  3. But you can buy them over the counter now, ...............................from any decent Music Shop...!
  4. My semi history is in 1976 (first bass) a 1962 Gibson EB2 which I sold after a couple of years as it was not cool! Then a 2016 Korean Warwick Star Bass 5 in Gold Sparkle, also sold, as not cool for an Americana band! Earlier this year got this, a long scale Chowny and now sold on. Finally got this a couple of weeks ago!
  5. I know I said no further comment but...even the premise behind the string swap is flawed. It is not 'tradition' that favours a flatwound but practicality, as a roundwound will over time wear grooves into a rosewood/pf fretboard, especially with the action at a 'milimicrobe'(btw what is that?).... I also like the 'extra knuckle space' suggestion; Fender have been doing it 4 in a straight line for years, has evolution bred a sub-species bassist with huge knuckles now? Maybe he just had a damaged Tuner in stock...?
  6. I thought he had reigned in the hyperbole but then I scrolled down. I reproduce it with no further comment: You might notice on the head I have spread the tuners because I like this look and also I like the extra knuckle space between the tuner paddles... and I progressively reduced the size of the tuner paddles from the low E to the high G. It plays fast and fluently because I re cut and filed the nut so the strings start at a milimicrobe off the fingerboard; meaning they make a note the instant you lay a fingertip on them however lightly you touch. I know tradition prefers tape-wound strings on fretless basses, but I like round-wound strings and they are mostly what I have in stock... if you prefer flat-wound strings let me know when you buy it and I will get and fit a set FOC.
  7. I've never played the One and Only. does that count?
  8. Well if they are still paying you at work in Holland, you have a result!
  9. I wuz being tres ironic...surely any one can tell the difference between the two when it's a simple 2 way switch?
  10. vive la difference? Mind there's something here I've always thought the big companies should do: where you have a mini selector switch, label it so the user knows whether single or double coil is selected.
  11. Wonder if he'll still be with them next year for Glasto?
  12. Has the Jaguar got a non OEM thumb rest?
  13. IBTL👎 Noticed a new category under item specifics: 'is it getting a good set-up yes, a careful one by me'.
  14. I had one, think I brought it to our Bass Bash one year, ( not last year's)
