  1. I saw someone else picked a smog song. this one from Dongs of Sevotion would be my choice. self explanatory title
  2. cheers john. I think it would be a shame if I lost the grain as it does look quite nice in certain light. If i was going for a solid colour I'd probably want to go for something completely different. going to have a look at some vintage cherry red colours.
  3. Not seen it all this year as its the same time as my sons' bed time but I worked on it between 2011 and 2014. Always seriously impressed by the musicianship.
  4. I thought I'd reopen this thread. I tried various stripping products including acetone and got off most of the yucky paint. so much of the body had been badly sanded that any hope of patching it up just seemed pretty pointless. As I had some time on my hands I went in and sanded the front and back with a low grit. I've left the sides and neck (the sides have been badly sanded but only roughly. Not sure I can face doing them! here's a pic of it, managed to stop going through original sealant, the white patches are where the previous owner and probably me sanded through. any ideas what I should do next? I figure I need to go through a few grits to make it nice and smooth. I was thinking maybe stain it a vintage red and lacquer it. or stain and oil? I have ideas of maybe changing the decal to chibson also.
  5. Did a gig with an house 90s carlsbro combo and it was quite possibly my favourite sound I have played with. it seems to have been the room that did me favours and generally I sound pretty much the same through whatever I play
  6. I wish it had a matching painted headstock!
  7. I’ve been put off by pmt as the few things I have tried have been straight from the box and needed quite a bit of adjusting. This puts me of buying completely.
  8. I was going to say chris cornell. similar kind of phrasing. reminiscent of cave in as well. I like it.
  9. I gave up with Dr who when the story arcs seemed bigger than the stories. hoping the new one reignites my interest. Some good box sets on bbc Iplayer at the moment which they are promoting Loads of louis theroux, tonnes of comedy ( I reccomend man like mobeen and flat tv.) My fave prog recently has been the secret life of Landfill and the five billion pound super sewer.
  10. thanks for the replies. I managed to actually peel some of the paint by picking it! will look out for some pure acetone. It really does need to come off. I dont intend to do much afterwards. I should add its a chinese gibson copy. I think I'd prefer if it didnt say gibson on the headstock really! playing wise its really nice, the intonation is good without any adjustment and no bad parts neck wise. I'd always intended buying an epi rivoli or guild starfire but this was just too much of a bargain
  11. Glad to see this is still being shown. I worked on it. A few people on here hated it but meh. We were so close to interviewing sly ...
  12. Hello. Picked this up today. It's my dream bass bar the finish. Looks like someone has had a go with their airfix painting kit and sander. I have some bio ethanol and some nail polish remover that managed to move some of this paint with some elbow grease but any tips on how to remove it all with a bit of ease would be great. Ideally I'd like to see what it looks like with the original paint and maybe just polish up rather than do a refin at the mo.
  13. thanks everyone for the replies! Just trying to figure out what to do with it now. its not really weighty or particularly light.
  14. Hello I bought this body about 12 years ago on eBay for not much- it was sold as pine so assumed that's what it was. The intention was to use it to practice on with painted my/ sanding finishing and then eventually turn it into a little table. i found it in my attic the other week and offered it to a carpenter friend to make a something with- he thinks it isn't pine. Anyways what do you think? I'm tempted to think about turning it into some sort of guitar now or perhaps gifting it to someone and then buying it back once they finished !
