    Epiphone Thunderbird - disuade me, please.

    Our singer has no respect for personal space, ie, my personal space, so is often hitting the end of my headstock. The thunderbird has hit his head a few times. On the plus side, it is roundy unlike the iceman, that looks like it really hurts!

    Steve Hackett - Selling England tour.

    Oh Mr Beato? Oh yes, I am subscribed to him. Can learn a lot from his videos. I have posted a few here.

    Weird the neck dive thing - I really don't have it. I have had worse neck dive on a P bass, which is odd as I assume all the epiphone neck throughs are the same? The only thing I have a problem with mine (apart from the reason I am selling it, the 4 stringness of it) is that it is a bit of a singer killer with the long neck.

    Am I too opinionated to be in a band?

    I think it is a good idea to get that out and up front. If they are not interested then it wasn't your group anyway. Some groups are very open to ideas and some aren't. If they aren't interested in your point of view then they probably will never be so good to bail. I am in two groups, I still feel like the new guy in the band I have been with for 3 years, but fully integrated into the one I joined a few months ago.

    As long as you get one of the neck through ones, and it fits you, they are great. I have one (that I am selling) and it works on me, but I took it to some guy locally who was interested in buying it, and it is true to say, it looked very odd on him. He was considerably bigger than me! The necks are very long, and very thin. If you don't like that you won't be happy. Its true they aren't good for ska. But plug it in loud for a rock song and everything is perfect.

    What are you listening to right now?

    She got there too and stayed at their house until her mum got in contact and got her sent back. and then she went back the following year. She is somewhat determined when she gets going.

    Yep. I certainly would not have an issue with a poplar bass.

    When my wife was 15 she hitchhiked across America to California to see them. From Montreal.

    Agree, someone up on stage who switches from ash to poplar bodied bass, noone in the crowd will notice the difference. I was actually just looking at the Squier classic vibes at the moment. I wish they had some other colours!

    Michael Jackson covers- Yes or No?

    Seeing as I would never watch that I wouldn't know, but which MJ does she look like?

    Just lurking on Basschat . A window popped up automatically ..,

    Yep, I had it here, just looking round if anyone else had, first time I saw anything like that.

    Steve Hackett - Selling England tour.

    I would say he sounded better than that when I last saw them. Maybe he got better with time. He still does the stupid theatricals though that I could do without.

    Steve Hackett - Selling England tour.

    Fair enough. Steve Wilson is my idea of Prog, and for me builds on the shoulders of Genesis and Yes. Don't get me wrong, I loved them, they were the foundations of everything but I need something a bit fresher. Although obviously Steven Wilson / porcupine tree do kind of love their 12 strings, flutes and melatrons! Spocks beard I find very variable, but some albums / tracks I love and some leave me cold. I suppose like Genesis (not so much Yes).
