    Ok guys. Some info. I sent photos to Overwater and they seem to think I have a early Progress bass. It has a through neck and two pick up. Active electrics. Plays and sounds nice. Thinking is from the early 90's

    Hello BC. Just wondering how I would know the difference between a Tanglewood Overwater Bass, and a erm! Overwater bass. Cheers
  4. Very good to deal with. If he can deal with me, he can deal with anyone lol. Thanks Keith
  5. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#000000"] [/color][/size][/font] [color=#222222]Hmmm to OP. Your title for the thread 'All the gear and no-eye-dear' leads me to believe you are trying to refer to people having all the fancy kit, but no idea what to do with it, or how to play it….or are you trying to say they have all the gear but have no idea what it’s worth?[/color] [color=#222222]Yet here we are and the thread has got in to a 'I can afford this or that so I'm going to get it'. This in fact is okay in my book…why not? Like many on here I have high end kit and low end kit and stuff in between. I think people should buy what they want if they have the ’spare’ cash to do so. Not so, if it means the kids have holes in their shoes etc.[/color] [color=#222222]Why do people buy expensive art? Is it because they have no idea what expensive art is?[/color] [color=#222222]What I will say though and I’ve said it many times before. In a full band situation it really does not matter if you are playing a Squire or a Fender CS, and Epi or a Gibson. The crowd will not know the difference 99% of the time…if not a higher%. Which brings me to this. If the crowd don’t know, but you do and it makes you feel good the it’s worth it.[/color]
  6. that's taking the free thing too far (no pun) even for me
  7. LP Jnr SC.....that's as old as me if possible J45 A good small valve amp
  8. Ooo F*** my reply with a quote is not working again:(
  9. [font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]There definitely a fair amount of Muso thoughts in this thread. TBH I really don’t think 90% of a crowd on NYE give a monkeys armpit if the band are very good. It’s all about music content most of the time. They are there to have a good time, drinking, dancing, snogging and some other bits and bobs. Of course there will be few in there thinking that the band is rough and playing “not that again” tunes in a very mediocre manner. You can see this every week in pubs that have bands up our way. Two bands spring to mind that have been playing mostly the same tunes for the last decade or so. However, the people love them and flock to see them churn out the ‘classics’ with the odd modern ‘classic’ thrown in.[/color][/size][/font] [font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]Really…..most crowds only want to have a laugh and a dance. Considering a LL could get a barmaid or karaoke ‘wannabe’ dj to spin some disc’s on a second hand DJ CD deck….or laptop and hard drive, getting a band is not the cheapest entertainment he could have booked.[/color][/size][/font]
  10. [color=#222222]Do you think there are forums for bar tenders or bouncers with threads like:[/color] [color=#222222] [/color] [color=#222222]NBD: Just bought a new sky blue cotton top I think I’ll give it a debut tonight at the Fox and Hounds.[/color] [color=#222222]Or[/color] [color=#222222]FS: Black bomber jacket, small amount of blood stains on left sleeves[/color] [color=#222222] [/color] [color=#222222]Disclaimer: I’m not saying that bar tenders are all female, or that bouncers get into a lot of bloody situations.[/color]
  11. [color=#222222]Hardly the same. We same to be missing a point here in that people playing in a band do it because they like playing in a band and making noise etc.[/color] [color=#222222]Can't remember the last time I heard a bartender or a bouncer saying, that they really enjoy it and would do it as a hobby.[/color]
  12. Grrrrr I also tried to get this but my pc crapped itself just as I was trying to send my message. Enjoy lol:)
