  1. Hello, So I've just gone to adjust the truss rod on my Fender P, but I don't have an Allen key that fits (bought it 2nd hand and didn't get the original) I went to use the key that came with my Squier P (fits nice and snug in the Squier) but it was completely loose in my Fender. Am I being ignorant to think that the Squier key should fit? Is something horribly wrong with my Fender? Can anyone point me in the direction of an Allen key that will fit? Thanks, Dave
  2. The SVT-VR and 2x12 that is sat by the counter in Wunjo's. Unbelievably rich tone even though I was playing a Squier through it!

    Here's mine! Love it!
  4. [quote name='Chiliwailer' timestamp='1392921762' post='2374287'] The Bass Doc has the best t/shell I've seen in modern times. Lovely nitro and awesome value. Someone should tell Fender Custom Shop... [/quote] I have one of these in production with Howard as we speak - excited doesn't quite cover it!
  5. A "before it gets traded in at Wunjo's tomorrow" kind of bump. Great amp in brand new condition at half the new price!

    Nice! Intrigued to see how the heads stack up! Not to hijack the thread completely, but some thoughts from me on the Rumble 40 I tried today (and am picking up tomorrow) [quote name='theyellowcar' timestamp='1392899497' post='2373913'] Just had the fortune of playing through the Rumble 40 at Wunjo's on Denmark St. One word - incredible. First things first it really does weigh nothing. It reminded me of the tiny 15 watt guitar combos my band used to practice with a decade ago, it was unbelievable. The sound was impressive, the built in voicings (Vintage and Bright) were effective and allowed for tones that ranged from full on dub to slightly driven tube on the Vintage setting, and then a really nice slap tone with the bright switch engaged. I didn't really play with the EQ because it sounded great flat, and the output seemed fine, although again i didn't push the master past halfway. All in all, very impressive for the price, great tone, amazing look, and a crazy lightweight box. EDIT: and after checking in with Ms Yellow I have just bought it [/quote]
  7. Withdrawn - trading in against my new amp today. Cheers.

  9. [quote name='bonnp' timestamp='1392885537' post='2373729'] novice question, if i put a jazz neck on a p bass will it limit me with type of strings, prefer heavy gauge, will there be any difference in tone or playabilty, is it entirely down to how u prefer your neck fat or thin? [/quote] Not at all, you will still be able to use your preferred string gauge, the key thing to note is that would need to re-set (or at least check) your set-up once the new neck is fitted. In terms of impact on tone - not a lot in my experience unless you were changing from a Rosewood board to a Maple board (Maple is a little brighter than Rosewood) Just make sure you measure your neck pocket before you buy anything.
  10. So many options. I think candy apple red wins it for me on this bass. Close runners up in Surf Green and Sonic Blue.
  11. Another couple of options in the Fender Modern Player series - not 'typical' Precisions, but the Tele bass (50's style precison body, 2 giant covered humbuckers) and the Jaguar bass (P/J pickups) have maple boards and are worth a look. http://www.fender.com/en-GB/series/modern-player/modern-player-jaguar-bass-maple-fingerboard-black/ http://www.fender.com/en-GB/series/modern-player/modern-player-telecaster-bass-maple-fingerboard-butterscotch-blonde/
  12. Brand new in the box. Selling as I'm switching back to 40's. £20 shipped in the UK.
  13. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1392677156' post='2371614'] Hmm, I dabbled with a Jazz for a while but was relieved to get back to my P neck, which is a bit of a baseball bat. I think it's about whatever you get used to, really... I like a lot of wood in my hand. Fnarr - and I say again, Fnarr. [/quote] I'm a bit schizophrenic when it comes to necks. I have 2 basses with Jazz necks and then a baseball bat Precision. Some days I like the extra room of the P, other days I prefer the way I can motor around the fretboard on a Jazz neck.
  14. As per the above suggestion a Sterling would be the way forward if you find the Stingray neck a little chunky. The Sterling is 38mm at the nut, like a Jazz, so it should feel significantly more slimline.
  15. That finish is incredible! The grain!!!
  16. Under the hood, with a 'card guard' for modesty. The Bass Doc is currently knocking up a couple of new guards for me
  17. [quote name='Jono Bolton' timestamp='1392471694' post='2369122'] The Bass Doc will knock one up for you [/quote] I have two new guards on order from The Bass Doc as we speak, I can't wait to get them back
  18. [quote name='Samashton12' timestamp='1392573198' post='2370196'] I think I'm gonna opt for a Rumble 40. [/quote] Let me know how you get on!
  19. I have a Rumble 15 for bedroom practice, the aux in is great - 90% of the time I plug my iPhone in, stick my headphones on and jam along to my favourite tracks.
  20. [quote name='redstriper' timestamp='1392586253' post='2370435'] Thanks tyc, I don't like Precisions for reggae because they're not clear enough. I need depth with clarity, which is probably why Jazz basses are most popular in this genre. I can add bass with EQ and heavy flats will help too. [/quote] Better reach for the wallet then
  21. Do you have rough dimensions and weight? EDIT: and is there an aux in?
  22. Wowww How's the tone? Is it a typical P in disguise?
  23. [quote name='redstriper' timestamp='1392575780' post='2370243'] I asked a coupla questions in that thread, about weight and tone...... if you have time [/quote] Replied
