    Marcus Miller 5 string or Ibanez SR505?

    I have an MM M7 and love it. G.

    Why does Ashdown MAG 300 combo sound so bloody good?

    I still have one - it's great. Although I have a Bugera 2000 I still use this for big gigs.
  3. I understand that these cannot be cut. They may be too long. The bass is a Marcus Miller M7 with a 35" scale but can be strung through the body, The 40" may turn out to be too long, thanks. G.

    15 year old son looking for help with used bass amps

    . .Look for a Peavey TNT 130 - it'll last a while. There's a current thread about it. Shouldn't be expensive either G.
  5. Lovely. Case is original. I had a 62 V3 and, apart from a different guitar the case was pretty much identical. Paper over pine, but looks good. G.

    Peavey TNT 130 vs Ashdown electric Blue 180

    Peavey = advantage - nuke proof = disadvantage = weighs about the same as a small planet.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only on Basschat!!!!!!!!!!!! G.
  8. Interested if you still have these. However note that Bass Direct are offering 5 string Extra Long at £52, therefore I'd offer you £42 posted. G.
  9. I had a Stinger on a Sub - treble was vicious. There was a fix - swap pos. of white and yellow wires, if I remember. Well worth checking. G.

    Yamaha vs Schecter vs Sandberg

    I don't know why the Sire M Series never gets a mention here - I know it's not PJ but with twin humbuckers in series/single/parallel switching, active/passive and that great Marcus Miller pre, it's defo worth a look. I have an M7 and it's my goto fretted. G.

    2 Way Truss rod

    So why make the nut out of soft metal? a right bu**er. G.

    2 Way Truss rod

    If your truss rod is 2 way, can you replace the adjustment nut? G.
  14. The old Dimarzio J pickup was a dual coil in a jazz shell & could be switched parallel or Series, but, as far as I can see there is now no 5 string equivalent. G.
