  1. [quote name='umcoo' timestamp='1475954755' post='3150105'] Jack Ellis in Cheatham Hill, Manchester is spot on [/quote] +1 for Jack and the guys.
  2. [quote name='RickyV' timestamp='1465983026' post='3072541'] Summer of 69. It was on our set list for quite a while early on and then removed as we were all fed up to the back teeth with it. But, people like it and always sing along. And if the Foo Fighters can cover it at one of their gigs then who am I to argue... [/quote] Don't you just hate this one!
  3. Just put a set of Rotosound Swing 66's on my Musicman Sterling Ray 34 bass having previously adorned it with D'adarrio. Whilst bringing the D string up to the correct tension it snapped about an inch from the ferrule! No issues with the other 3 strings, all in tune. Contact Rotosound UK http://www.rotosound.com and spoke with their customer service to explain my dilemma, and the guy on the end of the phone turns out to be very understanding, apologices for the breakage and immediately sends out a replacement D string (first class) at no cost to myself. If nothing else Rotosound deserves a mention on this and similar forums for excellent customer service.

  5. My 2005 Fender Deluxe Active Jazz 24 (Made in Korea) [URL=http://s1300.photobucket.com/user/lpenpraze/media/P1000326_zpsuf3cqlca_edit_1456424134973_zpsohdelqcn.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag86/lpenpraze/P1000326_zpsuf3cqlca_edit_1456424134973_zpsohdelqcn.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
  6. [quote name='The Hat' timestamp='1455982502' post='2984256'] Funnily enough my bass in s with Jack at mo. I only asked to see if there was one in Bolton coz I'm lazy [/quote] I travel 20 miles to take my basses to Jack, he's worth the travel.
  7. You'd be hard pushed to find a better luthier than Jack, the guy is top notch and what he doesn't know is not worth knowing. He has done great setups and more to all my basses and I would thoroughly recommend him (and Tom). http://www.jacksinstrumentservices.com/index.html
  8. [quote name='BigRedX' timestamp='1455132640' post='2976329'] Are you in a band? If not join one now! [/quote] That's easier said than done, I've been playing bass for coming up to a year and really enjoy it. But trying to find like minded individuals who are at the same level as myself and who enjoy the same music as myself (Motown, etc) and who would like to get together for a jam etc is nigh on impossible. I joined "Join My Band" in a hope of getting together with other musicians but if you're not already a well established bassist with a minimum of 20 years experience and a back catalogue of every genre of rock (plus must be aged 18 - 23) then you'll be very fortunate to find anyone.
  9. There was a bass player at Motown at the time called Ron Brown who used to turn up with loads of hand written riffs, grooves and licks, it's a possibility it may be him.
  10. Don't know if this will help! http://www.bigbasstabs.com/new_order_bass_tabs/regret.html
  11. [quote name='BottomE' timestamp='1452454897' post='2950117'] Very nice sir, you'll have to let us know how it plays. [/quote] I have to be honest, it plays great! The neck is neither too fat nor skinny as say a fender jazz neck. I have not found it too heavy to wear but again that's a personal thing and the range of tones available is amazing. Having a Fender Deluxe Active jazz bass (which too can be dialled in for a variety of tones) the sound of this is like no other! It can be bright and clean or growly and low. The Zero Mod thumb rest is in the perfect position for my hand, the action is just right for me and I'm finding it difficult to put down 😀 why did I wait so long before getting one of these!
  12. Bought this today, 6 months old, Bartolini pup upgrade with a Zero Mod thumb rest and D'adarrio strings - £300 cash! Opinions?
