  2. Bit of promo information here, but can't actually here the head.
  3. https://www.thomann.de/gb/kustom_de_1200hd.htm Anybody have hands-on experience of these heads? I'm looking for something that sounds as good as my Hartke LH500, but is easier to cart around.
  4. Aha! There's the answer to my question, nicely demonstrated.
  5. Perhaps I should clarify: I was scouring the web for information about the Fernandes PJ-45 bass when I stumbled across the video. I was immediately struck by the flopiness of the E string. I play short and medium scale basses, and there is often a debate about floppy strings with these scale lengths, and the need to maybe go up a gauge to compensate. My thinking was along the lines; "Blimey - I should worry about string tension - look at this...." I suppose I was "finger pointing" - at the string tension, and how come it seemed so low. That's all. Thread title amended accordingly. Steve
  6. Got to be worth £125 for that lovely neck alone?! Pity it's j-width because, if it was wider, I'd be seriously tempted....
  7. I was searching Google for "medium scale fender precision bass", and it came up.
  8. Well, there's this used Stingray for 30 Euros: https://www.howtoprepandsurvive.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=27392 It's most probably just me but, I'm left wondering whether maybe, just maybe, (I am rather known for being a touch cynical at times...), this could possibly be a scam? I mean, it most probably isn't, but there's something that just doesn't seem quite right here..... I've emailed them expressing interest in the G&L, asking for information about how I would go about buying it. Looking forward to the reply.

"Our buyers and we are buying overstocks & overuns from the same factories that make for reputable companies, and we've been doing that for many years. We also work on very tight margins to give our customers a good price."
  10. I've decided this bass isn't for me. While I like the idea of a downsized body, and the 32" scale, I've never really been a fan of active basses in general, or J-basses in particular. So, my quest for a decent 32" scale, passive P-bass (or MM style bass) continues, while I desperately try not to gawp at the redburst medium scale Jake on the Bassdirect website. Dammit.
  11. I have my eye on a Fender Urge Standard MIM. It's all original, with 2 J pickups, active pre-amp, and concentric tone pots. That's two complex for my brain, so I'd want to modify it to always passive (no pre-amp), simple vol/blend/tone control layout. Would this be possible with the original pickups and a new wiring loom from Kiogon? Thanks, Steve
