  6. Saw Steve Hackett at the Barbican in York in November and enjoyable as it was, I would spend my money on The Musical Box for the authentic Genesis experience. First Genesis gig for me was 1976 at Stafford, having failed to get tickets for The Lamb tour the previous year, so note perfect Gabriel era material with vintage gear was a treat. Goose pimples-a-plenty!
  7. Excellent. A lot of ‘A Trick Of The Tail’. ‘Los Endos’ took me straight back to Manchester Free Trade Hall Jan ‘77 hence the pic. They finished with ‘The Musical Box’, naturally, but came back for an encore of ‘’Supper’s Ready’ 😳
  8. MB announced last night that they will return next year with the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, not everyone’s idea of fun but I’ll be there.
  9. Unashamedly transported back to the 1970s last night at York Barbican; 2.5 hours of consummate musicianship from The Musical Box, one of, if not, the foremost Genesis tribute bands. Stunning!

  11. Just picked up a 4-string in the same colour, pictures don’t do it justice; acquired taste but exquisite. Good luck with the sale!
  12. Bought this from Peter (GreeneKing) a couple of months ago and am using his description from that sale as it sums up this instrument beautifully. For those familiar with ACG and Alan’s work, this is excellent value for a bass of this spec. Will add current pictures if requested. “It has a flat radius board, 18mm spacing and plays like a dream. Complex tones are available with the filter pre and 20 coils of pickup on hand. The bass even has a passive switch and a passive tone (batteries are required to power the pickups). 34" scale with a 7 piece neck that is ultra stable. I modelled the woods from my Warwick Thumb and it has that growl which is great. This bass has presence in spades... It's no lightweight. It was never intended to be but I'm skinny and I find it sits well on a strap and balances perfectly. Top Wood: Bubinga/Maple/Wengek Body Wood: Wenge Accent Veneer: Maple Body Finish: Oil/Wax Neck Wood: 7 piece Bubinga/Wenge Fingerboard: Wenge Scale: 34″ Head Plate: Bubinga/Maple, Back Plate: Bubinga/Maple and Heel: Bubinga/Maple Neck Finish: Oil/Wax Pickups: ACG MC5 Multi-Coils Hardware details: ACG/Hipshot bridge, Gotoh GB350 Resolite tuners, Dunlop Dual Design Straplocks and DR Dragon Skin strings Pre-amp: ACG 5K DFM
