  1. I have a Mk1, and as far as I can figure, the tones are pretty much identical - same pickups/preamp. Since unexpectedly getting an Overwater, it's not getting played very much though. G.
  2. Is it roundwound or flatwound, Jezza? G.
  3. Whilst respecting his writing, I lost all other respect for him when I discovered he was on stage with PF holding a bass while Guy Pratt stood in the wings and actually played the music...... G.
  4. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  5. I have a couple of reverb coils (2 coil and 3 coil) whaich may be had for postage. If you need more info PM me. G.
  6. Yes, but currently no pics - a 5 string Overwater & a 5 string custom build - Gibson RD body, Fender-style neck, MM pickup in the sweet spot and SD 2 band pre. G.
  7. When I was getting my fretless tended at Overwater, Chris got a standard allen key and ground about half of the short end off as it would have been too long to fit into the slot. You might try that. G.
  8. I did exactly that and came home with a unique instrument - Gibson RD-style body, 5 string fretless fender-style neck, and an alnico 5 pole pup in exactly the Stingray position. I'm not living at home (where the bass is) so I currently can't put up pics. G.
  9. Nip over to Jon Shuker's for a week & build a 5!!!!!! 😁 G.
  10. For me, it's my technique. Although I had a couple of 4s when I started, I've almost always played a 5. Now, when I play a 4, I find I'm zooming up & down the neck like I was pumping up bicycle tyres. I play across 5 strings and am most comfy doing that. G.
