  1. Lovely bass, great price too....I think this will be sold quickly.
  2. But would anyone be talking about him if he wasn't the son of...? I''m sorry but tastes differ, I checked his playing, didn't hear anything which drew my attention or saw a sign of the greatness I had expected after reading about his playing..
  3. Had a couple of trade offers (some of them quite appealing) but so far the bass is still here.. In the meantime I'm trying to get used to it a little more and just playing along with songs I'm learning. Wanted to learn this old b-side of McCartney's Goodnight Tonight, nothing fancy but the B string sounds nice on this..
  4. Just bought this here on Bass-chat but after playing it I realised again that I prefer four strings. Lately I had seen tons of videos of five and six stringplayers locked in isolation due to corona and their virtuosity went to my head and made me buy a five string again. I can manage playing a five but it's just no "fun" like on a four string (tastes differ and respect for all the players which do fantastic things on those basses). So I'm selling this again but wouldn' t mind trading it for an inspiring four string..I like "modern" basses with a sort of hifi sound (I don't have the "Miller" sound available for the moment so who knows..) This bass comes with a case, is a 35 inch, if I'm correct the stringspacing is 17,5 (can be adjusted individually), 4,4 kg, Bartolini pick ups and pre amp, graphite neck, no truss rod but it gives me the low action I need for the playing I'm able to..Dates from 1992. Can be shipped or picked up (shipment included). I made a crappy video with some sounds (some mistakes but my right wrist and index finger are still blocked after a bicycle accident two years ago) I hope the previous seller doesn't mind me using some of his pictures too....
  5. I used to gig a lot..played in around 100 bands around here in Belgium with some well-known names..I was very lucky and always combined it with a day time job.. Since a couple of years I hardly gig anymore...tired of the setlists filled with predictable songs, tired of the choices some singers make when the success fades, tired of the traffic jams, tired of being there six hours in advance, tired of the change in live music and the atmosphere (everyone staring at smartphones backstage instead of having fun, people hardly talk to each other like we used to and I have the impression that everyone tries to play it "safe", most of them just head home after the gig). I refused a lot of things and they don't call you anymore.. I still play at home and I try to keep myself busy with learning new things..It's weird but I don't miss bands and when I hear musicians complain these days and say how they miss the stage....I don't feel that at all. My life will always be filled with playing bass but the gigs are certainly not essential...
  6. Saw something by The Shadows getting reunited again in 2020 on YouTube and it made me grab my bass and figure out two of their songs (the other one is Atlantis)...Could be better in the performance but I thought the idea was entertaining
  7. Beautiful bass, pity that's in the States and that extra fees and shipment will make it more expensive...
  8. He says in one of the clips that he finds it hard when they ask him to double his lines in the studio since he plays very impulsive and doesn't really "know" what he's going to play.. He finds himself "like a deer in headlights" when they ask him to double his lines and he has to do that bar by bar.. Bit weird when you think of the possibility to write your part down and then read it.. Shouldn't be too hard for a seasoned veteran like him ?
  9. Has been already sold.. Cheers, Geert
  10. Thanks for posting this, hadn't heard this one in a long time..great !
