  1. These days it’s possibly my Overwater by Tanglewood Aspiration Deluxe 5 string. Cheapest bass I own and and just such a great playing and sounding bass and wouldn’t want to lose it considering what they go for
  2. These are very nice. I think it’s possibly the only Tribute model I haven’t owned though I did have a full fat USA SB-2 with a birdseye maple neck and ebony fingerboard. That one had been modded with a tone control but I liked the sound of the thing with the tone wide open. iirc the bridge pickup’s tonal characteristics and output meant it was best added in desired amount to give different flavours to the (main) split coil MFD pickup.
  3. Thank god Was seriously thinking up schemes to buy this and then make it and my Ice Blue Bongo 4H my perfect future gigging pair for when lockdown ends. Love my 4H (also a 2009)It has a superb neck, the ergonomics of the bass when standing are first class and the tone/EQ is spot on and easy to dial in. I always found the two pickup Bongos had me fiddling around with the tone controls constantly. The H is very much plug in and play which is why I now covet them above the two pickup variants.
  4. This past year I’ve been buying Cort, G&L Tributes and the Overwater by Tanglewood basses. All are brilliant imo and it’s been both a worthwhile exercise and a great experience trying different models from each of the three. I particularly like the offshore Overwaters - they’re outstanding and I have hung onto three of those - a four, a five and a fretless five. As well as those three, my Cort GB94 is a keeper. I’ve got a few USA basses as well but the Cort and Tanglewaters (?) aren’t going anywhere.
  5. I messaged them last year about a used MusicMan ‘Sledge’ Classic Sabre bass they had. Never got a reply then the bass was taken off the page about a week later. Possibly the bass was already sold, but I thought at the time if they didn’t reply I wasn’t going to chase them up. Personally I wish I had chased after the bass a bit harder though.
  6. Great stuff! really happy with my GB94. It’s an model with Seymour Duncan pickups and preamp. The next Cort I hope to own is a B5 plus AS RM the one with the roasted maple neck and MarkBass preamp. been intrigued by those since they first appeared. gratuitous pic of my GB94
  7. Much love for the Cort GB basses from me!😍 looks great with the roasted neck.
  8. I owned the Korean GB99F Jazz for around six months or so last year. I think it had Entwistle JXBN pickups with plain covers at the time. It was also my synth controller for a few months. Terrific bass and though I miss it, I still have a GB94 which is lush.
  9. Had one exactly the same as this for a couple of years with another Ray 35 in a different finish as back up. Great basses these. GLWTS!
  10. They’re brilliant playing (and sounding) basses no doubt. I’ve owned a few and the necks have all been consistently good. The action on my 4H is lower than any of my other basses and I find it inspiring to play. GLWTS
  11. Lovely looking thing at a bargainous price. Top seller too🙂 GLWTS!
  12. 3k? Just over six years ago I managed to snag one of the last ‘133 series’ 2EQ StingRays in black with a rosewood board for £1099 brand new.
  13. Serial number is somewhere between the one Machines has/had and is a ‘95 and my own which is a ‘96. For those who don’t know about this model it pre-dated the L-2500 which didn’t go into production until ‘97. I read somewhere that there were approximately 400 or so of the L-5500 built which would make it a fairly rare model. GLWTS!
  14. Been a bit of a journey on the bass merry go round. Hoping to slow down now but hey, that can easily change tomorrow. As far as regular production basses go, I’ve never owned a Yamaha, Lakland, Sandberg or Sire bass which I find a bit odd tbh. * means I still have Valenti Jazz #042 Valenti Jazz #146* Ovation USA B768 Elite bass Breedlove Atlas Solo fretless Gretsch G5440 Bolin NS-5 Spector NS5 CRFM Spector Euro 5 Godlyke Disciple Godlyke Deity Warwick Streamer Stage 1 Warwick Corvette Std Warwick Streamer Std 4HH Warwick Streamer Std 5HH Status Energy 4 Status Groove 4 Ibanez Ashula II Ibanez Cerro singlecut 5 Ibanez SRFF806 LTD RB-1006 Rocco Prestia* Overwater/Tanglewood Aspiration Elite 4* Overwater/Tanglewood Aspiration Elite 5* Overwater/Tanglewood Aspiration Deluxe 5* Overwater/Tanglewood Jazz Cort GB94* Cort GB99F Cort GB74 Cort GB75 x2 MTD Kingston 5 fretless Tune Bass Maniac Flea bass Tanglewood Curbow 4 Tanglewood Canyon III fretless ESP P bass Musicman Sabre Fretless Musicman Cutlass* Musicman Silhouette bass Musicman Bongo 4H* Musicman Bongo 4HS Musicman Bongo 4HH Musicman Bongo 5HS Musicman Bongo 5HH Musicman Sterling 4H CAR Musicman Sterling 4H white sparkle Musicman Sterling 4H honeyburst Musicman Stingray pre Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 2EQ teal with Status neck Musicman Stingray 2EQ black Musicman Stingray 3EQ vintage sunburst Musicman Stingray 3EQ fretless Musicman SUB teal (X2) Musicman Stingray 5H teal Musicman Stingray 5H black Musicman Stingray 5H Pearl Lavender Sterling Ray 34CA Sterling Ray 35 honeyburst Sterling Ray 35 Black cherryburst G&L Tribute JB-2 sonic blue G&L Tribute JB-2 sunburst G&L Tribute Kiloton G&L Tribute JB G&L Tribute L-2000 blueburst G&L Tribute L-2000 natural G&L Asat bass G&L Asat bass hollow body G&L SB-2 G&L L-1500 G&L L-2000 silver flake G&L L-2000 sunburst G&L L-2000 Flametop/J neck G&L L-5500* Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Fender MIJ Jazz fretless Fender MIJ 62 Jazz Fender MIM Jazz 5 Fender MIM Classic series Jazz Fender USA Std Precision trans white Fender USA Std Precision Blizzard Pearl Fender USA Dimension Deluxe 5HH* Fender USA Std Jazz 5 fiesta red Aria Pro II fretless 5 Hohner Jazz fretless Hohner Jack bass black Hohner Jack bass natural Hohner B bass Hohner MusicMan copy HH Marlin Sidewinder no name Rickenbacker copy Satellite short scale Westone Thunder 3 Ibanez Cimar P bass
  15. The Forest Green looks superb. Shame it doesn’t have an ebony board and a matching headstock. My second pick would be Snowy Night.
