    Since when did Sandbergs jump in price?!

    It’s one of their “Masterpiece Aged” models. Looks like you’re paying an extra grand or so to have someone ruin a perfectly nice £1-2k bass for you.

    What bass is being played in this video?

    Good spot! Early logo Schecter.... Cant find a photo of a slab bodied bound bass but they did guitars in the same style in that period.

    Your *favourite* bassline?

    A few more faves for me... Colibri - Incognito The Enemy Within - Rush (from the album “Rush does reggae”, LOL!) Whenever I see your smiling face - James Taylor Lee Sklar catches a little pinch of joy and sprinkles if over a pretty simple walking bass line. But his playing stil brings a smile to my face every time I hear it!

    Your *favourite* bassline?

    I do love this one... And this one too... The fabulous Johnny Gus on bass. Finally there is this cracker too...
  5. There’s a few Elwood’s coming... hopefully one will volunteer.

    Does anyone actually LIKE jazz?

    Loads of types... from 20-30s swing bands through Wes Montgomery and Dave Brubeck to Joe Pass, Larry Carlton, smooth jazz to souly, funky, acidy jazz... so many great artists and styles to explore.

    ELO Cello Parts

    Apropos of nothing... a while back I discovered that the grandad of one of my little boy’s chums was cello player in ELO. Left before all the big hits though...
  9. Yes, that would round off the selection nicely. I wonder whether I'll be able to spot my own basses?
  10. And bearing in mind that lead vocals, two guitars and a bass were probably all going to be going through that single Watkins Dominator! And the pick-up on at least one of those guitars would be the scavenged mic from an Army surplus field radio or an RAF flying helmet shoved into the f-hole.
  11. Sounds like a cue for a song... "Grandad, Grandad, we'll miss you. That's what we all say to you..."
  12. @NickD looking forward to having a look at your Elwood and seeing how the Freeze works in practice...
  13. He was a pop star/writer before he was known as a film composer. Sadly not on iplayer at at the moment but this programme had a great section on John Barry, his move into cinema and the Bond soundtracks https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03b965y
