    Anyone use a Clean boost pedal?

    Cheers - sounds like a TC Spark will be my best bet.

    Cheers for the replies everyone. I have a bid on a TC Spark mini at the moment, but if I don't get that it looks like there are plenty of other options to check out.

    Anyone use a Clean boost pedal?

    I use a TC Spectracomp into a Tech 21 VT Bass to achieve a nice saturated tone without fizzy distortion, but there are some times in the set (eg the bass solo in 'substitute') when I could do with increasing the volume a few db but without changing the tone or adding more distortion. I'm thinking that a TC spark mini after the VT might do the job, but there are a few other pedals that might be suitable like the Electro harmonix LPB-1 nano and various cheap & cheerful mini pedals in the £15-£25 range. Can anyone offer any experience/recommendations for a clean boost pedal?

    I don't have a yellow bass, but I would like one to match my car

    I call BS on this one

    Here's a bass being offered as an alder-bodied Squier Mustang bass with a BIN of £245. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Squier-Mustang-Relic-Bass-short-scale-30-Included-Vox-mini-Amp/123469702860 Even my missus would be able to tell you its an agathis-bodied bronco bass worth about £80-£100 on a good day with the wind behind it.

    Which pickup is in this '69 Fender Mustang?

    I normally love mustangs, but this one is minging

    Anybody know what this used to be?

    The body wings appear to be made from B&Q knotty pine. It looks like a first attempt at putting together an eight string before realising that it didn't work & giving up on it.

    £40,000 for a replica !

    I suspect these guitars aren't for playing but are for rich people to display in a glass case in their office
  9. There is no mention in the listing that this guitar was originally sold by Thomann for decoration only and not as a playable instrument.

    Pick guard or Scratch plate?

    Pickguard - Jean-Luc Scratchplate would be a silly name

    New embassy (and also thunderbird) bass, Classic style!

    I'm sorry I made you sad by changing the truss rod cover on my bass :o(

    HEADS UP!! Get Izotope Ozone 8 Elements for "FREE"

    Cheers for the heads-up. I've just bought little clipper for a quid so the voucher for ozone should be heading my way soon.

    Bass sawn in half & taped together

    Interesting alternative to a whammy bar. It does seem to result in floppy strings and an action you can drive a truck under. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDPh2OKBPI0

    Tony Franklin fretless

    I made a great fretless bitzer Precision several years ago with a Brandoni neck & body. The Neck is fantastic with a nice bit of flame/birdseye in the maple and a lovely dark ebony unlined fingerboard. I wouldn't be surprised if they still sell the same necks.
