  1. If only Gibson's lawyers felt the same way!
  2. We need to find a new manufacturer. But due to Covid delays with our basses - it’s not our top priority at the moment. Sorry!
  3. Accidentally purchased Vulfpeck Beautiful Game CD when trying to buy the vinyl on Discogs. Looking to pass it on. :)

      Yes please.

      too slow!

  4. It's a pirate of my pedal yes. Bastards!
  5. They have truss rods yes. What they don't have is the two carbon fibre rods on either side of it that the final production models will have.
  6. It's too late to put the carbon fibre rods in now. They still work fine and setup ok. They're finished but have no hardware fitted.
  7. I have about 12 completed bodies/necks for the NT series basses (some 4 string, some 5 string) that the factory forgot to fit the carbon fibre neck rods for. I was originally going to bin them in India (which seems somewhat wasteful). But I don't want them getting out into the marketplace with my name on them - as they do not match our advertised spec. (not that they are bad by any means) Do you think it'd be worth bringing them over and offering them up on here (obviously for a small sum of money)? Are there enough DIY bass tinkerers to make this worth my while? TA! Stephen
  8. He sells them because I keep sending them to him and he doesn’t have space. Not because he doesn’t like them
  9. What you're not taking into account here is that my motivation is selfish and I don't have your best interests at heart. Unless your best interests align with buying a bass. In which case... I'm your best friend.
  10. Probably not. Sorry! They're not that far along yet.
  11. About £600-ish is the figure we’re working to at the moment
  12. There is a NCP pretty much at the venue. You can get tickets at the door.
  13. SEO takes time! In fact age is one of the primary factors in ranking I think. Also... they're page 1 position 3 for "Bass Guitar Review".
  14. It cost me about that to park from friday through sunday at the venue.
  15. Some nice artist announcements. Miki Santamaria, Peter Hook, Billy Sheehan.
  16. We will come of course - if I actually have some stock by then!
  17. I can categorically deny that we made it. We've only ever made our own designs.
  18. Will try and attend. It's dangerously close to my daughters birthday though.
  19. HELPER NEEDED for London Bass Guitar Show. 

    I need an extra pair of hands on my stand in case I need to go pee or eat or suchlike. I can get you in the show (and you're free to wander around and go watch the artists) as long as you check in with me periodically. Ideally if you can hang around till the end of Sunday and watch my stuff while I go get the van that'd be good too. 

    I'll buy you lunch and get you entry for both days. DM/PM me if you feel like doing it. :)

      If you're still looking- I'm up for it

      All sorted! 



  20. I'm booked to do this show. It'll be very well attended. Also they've got their review channel up and running "Bass Guitar Review" http://bassguitarreview.co.uk/ their first review is linked below. They'll be doing one of my basses next week (Retrovibe Vantage Tony Butler Signature) *SHAMELESS PLUG* It can only be a good thing this show. We tend to see the same faces year on year and the bass guitar show in London. So to get to another major bass only show in another part of the country is exciting. Look forward to seeing you at both events!
  21. Just spotted this. To add a little context - although it's not an excuse as such - you caught me on an exceedingly bad year, with my wife going through chemotherapy and me trying to run the company single handed I just could not keep on top of admin, especially when it fell outside the usual workflow. Yours is not the only case of this, I just didn't cope with keeping on top of this stuff. We are also REALLY struggling with backorders/stock so it'd be very difficult to switch it out without having anything physically in our hands to switch it out for. Our rep is rightfully taking a bit of a hit for this, with some orders having had to wait as long as from August 2018 ... Left handed bassists! Grrr 😉 Hopefully we'll see you back for a bass in the future, although if not - I'd totally understand.

    *puff of smoke. You summoned me master?
  23. Maybe playable. Maybe not. You have no right to recourse if it isn't. I'm quite philosophical about the copies of my stuff floating around. I know my basses are better. I know they're copies of the old chinese versions of my basses, although the factory I used to use swears they are nothing to do with it. I can't stop it - so I don't get excited about it. I also know since we moved production our basses are SO much better than the ones we were getting out of China - even before they started knocking them out with cheaper parts etc. Also Aliexpress is just a marketplace. Like Ebay. They don't actually make anything. They just facilitate the sale.
