  1. Under the hood, with a 'card guard' for modesty. The Bass Doc is currently knocking up a couple of new guards for me
  2. [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
  3. [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!
  4. 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.
  5. [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
  6. Do you have rough dimensions and weight? EDIT: and is there an aux in?
  7. Wowww How's the tone? Is it a typical P in disguise?
  8. [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
  9. [quote name='redstriper' timestamp='1392578363' post='2370301'] Thanks for the replies re weight and tone - it's getting harder to resist... [/quote] On your tone Q, I just tried mine through headphones with the tone rolled all the way back - less dubby than my P in the same position, in a good way. Decent note definition, much more clarity than said Precision. If you needed more thump you could dial it in on your amp.
  10. [quote name='Rasta' timestamp='1392572774' post='2370189'] Temptation [/quote] Can't go wrong for the price. Worst case I'm sure you could move it on quite quickly on here!
  11. [quote name='Rasta' timestamp='1392571004' post='2370161'] Wow dready, that looks quite a bass for the money...hmmm do i need 4 basses ....did you get one? [/quote] I got one recently and you're not wrong - lots of bass for the money. There's an entire thread on them in this forum :-)
  12. [quote name='HowieBass' timestamp='1392552120' post='2369895'] I keep looking at this Vintage V4 (Precision) bass and so far have resisted... http://www.gak.co.uk/en/vintage-v4bk-bass-boulevard-black/18004 [/quote] Tried the 'relic' V4 a few weeks ago and was very impressed for the price. I would say it was better than an average Squier Affinity, and on a par with the VM series.
  13. Had two of these for bedroom practice and had to send both back for different faults (dodgy input and then a rattling cab) When they did work they were brilliant. I just couldn't bring myself to try a third on the off chance it might a be a good one. I went for a Fender Rumble instead, which has been faultless.
  14. [quote name='bartelby' timestamp='1392311283' post='2367196'] The satin black one is currently right at the top of my GAS list. [/quote] Big fan of the black/black/maple!
  15. [quote name='mcnach' timestamp='1392287976' post='2366745'] am I the only one who liked the stock strings??? [/quote] I find them a bit sticky. They sound decent though.
  16. I have a Rumble 15 from the previous generation - it's tempting to upgrade given I could get something with 3x the output (and a much better look) in a box of similar weight.
  17. Mine has become the first bass off the stand at the moment. I've never really played Jazzes before (always been a P kinda guy) but this is really doing the business, I feel like I can hear more of the wood than I can with my P's.

  19. [quote name='tom1946' timestamp='1391760875' post='2360918'] Ok well further to my problems, I ended up adding the extra and bought a discounted Squier VM Precision in Amber/maple from them. They gave me £30 off for my trouble too. The P bass is a different level for me, I am a dyed in the wool precision guy anyway. I did recently buy a new MIM P in white/maple and the only difference I can see is the Squier is a bit lighter! To my ears they both sound the same. Sure the MIM feels more solid but that's it. [/quote] I have the very same Amber VM Precision and it more than stacks up against my MIM. Great basses.
  20. Gareth bought a Silver Series neck from me this week, payment was lightening fast, great communication throughout and just a really nice guy to deal with (always a bonus, right?) Buy or sell with confidence. And Gareth, hope you enjoy the neck!
  21. As above. You would probably be able to add more value to the bass by sacrificing the sig and making the mods you want to make
  22. Definitely a big +1 for Yamaha - my first bass was an RBX170 and it was solid, and only cost £170ish at the time. The Squier Vintage Modified range is also excellent (well built and decent hardware), but a little more pricey at around £250. All that said there's no alternative for going out to your local shop and leaving with the one that speaks to you.

    Bought a Jazz neck off Will, arrived quickly, great communication throughout - would happily buy again.
  24. So unfortunately the Silver Series neck didn't quite fit. Fortunately I've grown to love the maple neck. The guard I bought didn't line up either, but I've managed to extend the holes and it's now fixed in pretty well. Very happy with my purchase.
