  1. I know that there is no such thing as an original thought anymore, as everything has been done at some stage. But has anyone mixed flat and roundwound strings on the same guitar? I like many, have flats on one bass and roundwounds on another. Both sound and play very differently and I select to suit the song best. The same goes for fretless, and there are examples of people pulling a few frets on a bass to get a hybrid best (or worse!) of both worlds. So, is there sense to say (maybe on a 5 string) have EADG as roundwould for slappy stuff. But put have the 5s B on flat to have the choice to swap to thumpy stuff? Anyone tried this?
  2. Finally finished, several weeks later than I expected. But very very happy with result. Plays and sounds great. 🙂 Rotosound flats, Kent Armstrong Hot Vintage P pup. Classic sounds, i could not be happier.
  3. And now Gak have put up their price. thanks fellers.😡 https://www.gak.co.uk/en/epiphone-jack-casady-bass-metallic-gold-left-handed/936564

  5. Lol. Actually the wine box is only for me to carry home a case of Jail Ale. And yes, I am often ‘Well soaked’. 🍺🍺🍺
  6. Some personal issues kept we away fro home for several weeks. But now im back for a bit and I’ve grabbed a couple of hours sanding and polishing. Practiced on the back and generally happy. Hope to do a better job in the front though as there are a few sanding scratches from 1800 sanding part. Don't think i soaked paper for long enough. But im happy enough. 🙂
  7. Lots to love here. https://www.gumtree.com/p/guitar-instrument/left-handed-bass-guitar-fender-precision/1379097434
  8. Mine offended me so much, i took a jigsaw to it.
  9. ‘Coming soon’, apparently. https://www.madridhifi.com/p/epiphone-jack-casady-bass-left-handed-metallic-gold/ positive signs. 😃
  10. Ive signed up to be notified when in stock. Not sure if i will be able to resist if it comes in. 😳
  11. Interesting! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Left-handed-luthier-built-status-style-headless-active-bass-stunning/333625695326?hash=item4dada41c5e:g:lTQAAOSwPGNe5m~S
  12. Ironically, just read that Rogers main bass since the Wall tour (from the three basses originally bought by the band), has a Charvel neck (Replacing original RW one), with a dodgy Fender logo applied. The ‘red dot’ bass that everyone refers to is the one David Gilmour has.
  13. I’m not ashamed to say that this will be a faker. Being a leftie I’ve had a lifetime of music shops with zero guitars for me. This is why I started to make my own. Granted Fender have now started to make the Player Precision, but for yonks all that was available was the Jazz. I want a Roger Walters (tribute) Bass. Not available in leftie. Do Fender make a left hand maple neck that I could buy? Nope. Hence the faker decal on my own neck. Not trying to deceive anyone other than myself 😉
