  1. Magic Touch had lost its magic! 😅
  2. I heard Stanley Jordan when he first became known in the mid 80s and I bought his first album 'Magic Touch'. I've been upgrading my hi-fi the last year or two and hadn't listened to Magic Touch in ages... so I decided to play it again to hopefully be astounded at how much better it'd sound with my much improved system. Couldn't stand it, his guitar tone sounded horrendous so I took to my local charity shop! Ah well...
  3. The first was John Lennon, then Ian Curtis and most recently Bowie. Strangely enough I was moved more by the death of Ayrton Senna as I'd seen him race several times and it happened in real time on television.
  4. The stock white Squier active jazz 5 that they're selling has escaped the clutches of the mad modder and looks OK for the money! Somebody buy it quick to save the poor thing, it must be worried sick in fear of losing its head! 😂
  5. Always good to see an interview with Class (A) 😎
  6. I'd be inclined to set it flat, just as you'd do when dressing the frets.
  7. Hmmmm, looks like a cross between a Spector and an Ibanez. The description for the pots doesn't match the photos (text says two stacked pots but there's only one).
  8. I've read a couple of articles in The Guardian and just discovered that he suffered from stage fright and used drink to help him get up and perform, which did surprise me - I thought he just drank because he liked his beer! Last time I saw The Fall was in Wigan and he had to be dragged out of the boozer next door to the venue when it was time to take the stage. RIP MES.
  9. It's usual to measure string to pickup gap when you fret the strings at the last fret and you'd normally aim for around 1/8" - that would usually mean the neck pickup is lower than the bridge pickup. The Fender specs can be found here: https://support.fender.com/hc/en-us/articles/214343843-How-do-I-set-up-my-bass-guitar-properly- HTH
  10. Any idea whether they're mostly sealed box design or front ported? Note: This wandering a way off @Mornats original question but I'm enjoying the discussion all the same!
  11. Ahhh maybe you mean the Muon, the speaker that birthed the Blade... EDIT: Ah hang on, yes I do remember that episode but I can't remember the product at the moment... (gets thinking cap back on)
  12. No chance that you'll ever find yourself lusting after a KEF Blade then @SpondonBassed?
