  1. This seems to be a point of debate amongst many Jet fans - guitar tuned to D or a Bass VI. I'm just going of what I've read in a Fender book. @grahambythesea what's your source that it was a Bass VI?
  2. I generally dislike white pickguards, however, I think it looks good on silver
  3. The KISS nerd in me always liked the aesthetic Gene using a Thunderbird in the 70s
  4. I'm very much looking forward to the release of this
  5. On the positive side, the purpose of the box is to avoid direct damage to the bass, if boxes never showed damage we wouldn't need them. Good luck all the same
  6. And there's one for sale BC right now. Not mine, but I've been tempted by it.
  7. Any idea what gauge strings are on these?
  8. Shadows - Man of Mystery - Jet walks his way around the chords through the whole thing. Shadows - Apache - tastefully, musical and interesting (certainly for 1960) Jet Harris & Tony Meehan - Diamonds - though not a bass track. Jet on lead "Barritone", actually a guitar tuned to DGCFAD by all accounts.
  9. Jet had some interesting, obviously jazz influenced lines on those Shadows records. Sounded great with both Shadows drummers he played with too (Tony Meehan and Brian Bennett). Apparently had the first P Bass in the UK too. A couple of his solo/duo (with Tony Meehan) tunes are pretty good too, lead instrument is often a Fender Bass VI or downtuned guitar.
  10. @Natexxo I recently had the chance to play the Harley Benton side by side with a Squire VI, both strung with LaBella Flatwounds. IMO ... ...Build quality, and playability are equal. The Squire sounds sounds better, not necessarily more or less low end, mid or treb, just a more pleasant, more vintage sound. Apologies if that's useless, I really struggle to describe sound. It's worth noting the comparison was made through a guitar amp (Fender Reverb) and I was in a "VI as a lead instrument" mindset. As a "bass" instrument through a bass amp the HB does a decent job. More on the LaBellas, these strings really bring the HB and Squire to life, if that 60s tone is what you're after. However, the LaBellas are not a good fit for the HB, due to the shorter string length requirement due to the lack of vibrato system.
  11. This may or may not help, but Squier produced a Jaguar bass with a humbucker a few years back. https://www.gak.co.uk/en/squier-vintage-modified-jaguar-bass-special-hb-silver/44292
  12. Yes, plug one into the other and be careful with the volume level. There's nothing to stop you plugging a 450W head into a 200W cabinet, just be careful with the volume. I'm assuming the head has a speaker output. If not it would be a simple job to add one.
  13. It's ironic that during that Unplugged show Kurt mocked the estate of Leadbelly for offering him a guitar for half-a-million dollars.
