  1. cool man thanks- looks lovely and clean!
  2. agreed- i play it an awful lot at the moment! any pics of yours? sorry about the stickers by the way. I know that offends some folk. they probably won't be there forever.
  3. Thanks man actually, i take it all back............... there's quite a difference when playing back to back with a regular scale! on the back of that, i must try a short sometime
  4. Damn saw this too late- lovely bass, congrats
  5. It was a while back, but pretty sure it will have been "I wanna be adored" by the stone roses. I knew it on guitar and loved it when we swapped instruments at band rehearsals- I bet it was the first thing I played when i finally got my own first own bass around 10 years later ๐Ÿ˜ Some belters on here folks please keep them coming- I'm gonna use this as a reference and come back when I fancy learning something new ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  6. Just had a search for medium scale to see if it was a โ€œthingโ€ ๐Ÿ˜€ some nice stuff in this thread- never even heard of gypsy rose! Iโ€™ve only ever owned a p of some kind and a ric after many years, so decided to keep my eye out for something different. Landed this bad boy off a fellow BCer over Xmas, took it to a jam last week. Mud-bucker, j bass pickup, medium scale- lots of new things to try! I love it so far and itโ€™s a lot of fun. Iโ€™ll admit I donโ€™t notice the scale change so much (I only play very simple stuff, rarely high up the board) but the tone differences are massive!
  7. in the six string world (forgive me!) the word on the street is that the chinese made CV models are being continued with no changes. All the models which were previously branded "vintage modified" and made in indonesia, are getting tweaked and re-branded. Not saying this is true as anything could happen- but the availability of the current chinese made CV models may not be effected. Yet........ if anyone knows different I'm all ears. I too love the look of those black 70's cv precisions ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. looks like my P was 399 dollars in 1992 if i've read it correctly- glad i got it for less than new! (at todays exchange rate that is)
  9. I fell in love with the looks of one of these in my local PMT a couple of weekends ago- it was a beautiful olive green colour ๐Ÿ˜Ž nice to hear they play and sound as good as they look
  10. Well folks, I scratched the itch and I'm now the proud owner of a "proper" bass amp. As per advice on here I ordered the 300 head with the 210 cab, and then a few days after putting that in I was in PMT and decided that the 1x15 sounded so much different that I had that too. Bear in mind I've never even had anything bigger than a 1x8 15w combo before- so I thought s0d it, whilst everything is on sale I'll get the lot and I can experiment and try different things! I can personify some of the conversations i've read on here The 300 is fine through the 210 at bedroom volumes- no matter what type of pickup is used, but through the 1x15 vibrates the room on anything more powerful than a j-bass pickup! I'm not so concerned about resale values- I bought this because I thought it was time I bought a jam-able amp, hopefully the head will see me right for many years and I'll be able to source a more portable cab should I ever need it, and the cabs can stay where they are. More importantly, I now understand the sound differences between a 210 and 115 cab for starters. Happy days, and thanks again to those who advised me early in the thread and all others who have contributed. Keep the thoughts coming, I'm interested to hear what more experienced players think of them. Cheers!
  11. Recently bought a Bass Guitar off ash, superb smooth transaction- just like when I bought a bass off him 10 years ago- many many thanks! Great guy to deal with
  12. thanks all. very kind words- and very encouraging for me, appreciate it. Great for me to hear what you guys are learning- awesome thread! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  13. There's threats there may be a jam on the horizon- so I've been given "everlong" to learn. Even though I've been an owner / noodler of bass for 15 years, I never really progressed- so this is a challenge! fingers aren't quite up to full speed so half noting the first bit at the mo. I doubt my learning at this level will inspire anyone on here!
  14. Mind blown. That's cool Good luck to the OP- i've owned and noodled on bass for many years and I'm sill a bit slack in my technique- so reading these threads with tips on helps me too enjoy the learning curve
  15. Nice looking bass ash. If you are willing to post it (Iโ€™m only an hour and a half away but short on time!) PM me a price, if thatโ€™s a pain in the neck and you wanna hold out for a collection sale itโ€™s all good ๐Ÿ‘
