  1. Love mine too - use it on my Eminence EUB - valuable tool and I find it better than the updated silver version
  2. 50 Shades of Bass hey - well there are advantages and disadvantages to both American - all up together, QC great, great sound and playability you wouldn't need to mod (but could sometime - would affect re-sale price when you sold it ….one day) MIM - sure mod this to f&*^ - pick-ups, wiring loom, hardware - etc,etc - but its still a MIM bass at the end of the day...….the good thing about doing this is you can experiment with different parts and find out what you like/don't like....but it becomes expensive - I started doing the same thing in 1995 when I started teaching, on a Korean Squire jazz - re- sprayed, etc, etc, - the only things that are the original are the body neck - probably spent over £600 - plays like a dream - and the only reason I did this is because I adore the neck - but its still a squire TIP - if you do mod it ….Keep the original parts so you have the option to pop them back on if/when you sell it
  3. You're right Creeper, there is a metal pole underneath the fingerboard which adjusts the angle - but there is also an adjustable bridge available for the KK
  4. Hi Creeper - CORRECTION..... - I didn't say 'the neck can be tilted' - please read my comments above ….the BRIDGE can be lowered or raised to suit ones playing technique - this is a different thing
  5. Do you wipe down your strings after practicing/playing a gig, use a string cleaner or just pack your bass away and leave the strings alone - i'm curious as to what people do & use
  6. Back in the 80s bright Rotosound strings that were slapped and sounded pingy was one way to go. Times changes and bass tones moved on - the flat re-emerged and became more popular and the brightness wasn't always/if at all, needed depending on your style of music and what you played - so when do you know its time to change your strings?
  7. They have an adjustable bridge so you can take the action down quite low before the buzzing starts (the problem with that is that you learn to tickle the strings and not really produce a loud tone with your right hand) - that's ok to start with as you would use the amp to produce the volume and slowly develop your technique - apart from that you would really need to speak to a luither
  8. Thanks for your vote - and I bet the Summer School was wonderful experience and now a great memory
  9. Hi Robee - and thanks for the video clip - Jamey's suggested order of study is volumes 1,24,21,116,2,54,3,70,5,84 as stated in his volumes, his free download-able handbook and on line
  10. I have very many happy memories of the Bassman 100 - my first 'proper' amp bought in 1980 from Carlsbro in Mansfield. Had it a few years never a problem with it and only traded in it for a Trace Elliot 1110 combo in the mid 80s - as a lot of bassist did back then - shame hey missed it - now have tooooo may amps.
  11. If you want to consider selling it - let me know you best price
  12. if only that was black …….or even a 5-string
  13. One of the best (if not The Best) Bass Guitar amps ever made
