    MLP Basses

    Does anyone have any information on the luthier, Molnar Laszlo and his basses. I’ve seen the website and emailed for info a couple of times to no avail. I acquired this Princess 6 SC on here in a trade and am thinking of putting it up for sale. It came with EMG pre and pickups which I’ve replaced with a John East Uni-pre 5 and Delano pickups. It’s a buyer’s market at the moment, I know, and something is only worth what the market is prepared to pay but I’d love to put a rough value on it.
  2. Always late to everything 🙄…that is beautiful 😍

  9. I went to Leeds on Tuesday. Having last seen them in 1984, I almost felt like an interloper. I came away having thoroughly enjoyed the show, great performances and great lighting but with a hint of sadness at how Phil must have felt and be feeling on this tour. Yes, he’s a consummate professional and a great showman but I couldn’t help but wonder, listening to some of the lyrics. The acoustic bit was good and I really liked the arrangement of the ‘Lamb’. I freely admit to listening to ‘Invisible Touch’ for the first time about a week ago, and probably won’t listen to it again, but the newer (to me) stuff came across really well as you’d expect. Nic’s drumming was excellent and I got to thinking, as one does…Phil has said no more Genesis for him after 2021 soooo…get Pete, Tony, Mike and Steve to settle whatever differences still linger, get Mike to learn some of the old stuff, persuade a more mellow Tony to play some of the Lamb, and add young Nic to the stew and, hey presto, pre-Trick of the Tail Genesis back together for a tour of the stomping grounds of the 70’s, the de Montforts, the City and Town Halls and a University refectory or two. Does anyone have Tony Smith’s number? 🧐
  10. Shame there’ll be no ‘Los Endos’ this time around.
  11. John Martyn telling Danny Thompson to “put that f*cking silly violin down” on “Live at Leeds” after an observation on Ravel’s Bolero being designed solely for accompanying the sex act.
  12. Mrs skb558 liked the odd Spin Doctors tune. “Abracadabra, I wanna reach out and grab ya, Steve Miller Band ooh Spin Doctors, very similar” Ron Manager, Fast Show
  13. Anyone going to Birmingham tonight? Look forward to a review. Any other William Nomates going to Leeds next Tuesday and fancy a beer beforehand?
  14. Thought I’d better listen to this ahead of Leeds show week after next having never bothered before. First and last time. 🙄
  15. Forgot about this… John Martyn - Live at Leeds
  16. The only track I like on Frampton Comes Alive is ‘Do You Feel Like We Do’ ; takes me straight back to the hot summer of ‘76, eighteen and not a care in the world.
  17. Genesis - Seconds Out Jeff Beck & Jan Hammer Group - Live Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Weld
  18. Never seen these as anything other than fugly
  19. Great post. First gig was Wishbone Ash in December ‘72 as a snotty-nosed 14-year old. Won tickets and a copy of Argus in an NME competition. Saw the band loads of times in the 70s and very early 80s. Saw the AP variant a few times since, most recently on their 50th Anniversary tour. Awful, left after the first half of their set. Have only seen MT’s band 3 times and will be seeing them again in December. No bloated noodling and as close to the original band as my fading memory allows me to recall. Met Martin after a gig in Pocklington a couple of years ago and asked him about his Thunderbird; Epiphone with replacement pickups. Coupled with his Ashdown rig he gets a great tone. Lovely chap. He was one of the reasons I picked up a bass in the first place.
  20. For those that don’t already know, the PBS Documentary is on Sky Arts tomorrow evening.
  21. Hate to rub your nose in it Michael but 2 of my mates and I slept in a car on Wimbledon Common after the first gig at Earls Court and got tickets for a second night.
