  1. Same price as a Helix Stomp? 🤣🤣
  2. I was listening to the guy from Kiesel talking about this, he says they released their V 9 years before Gibson bothered to trademark theirs. If there's two things Gibson are good at it's making sub-par instruments and losing court cases, looks like this trend is set to continue.
  3. What's the price and also what's the spacing on the 5?
  4. I also have a Tobias fetish (it's the only one of my 3 dream basses I've never owned) and now play Jazz shaped basses so that's fine by me!
  5. Funnily enough spotted one of the el cheapo range Lodestones on Facebook just now (while looking for less hideous basses obviously) for £175: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/504336910485159/ Gonna assume the seller is paying you the £175 to take it away rather than the other way around. Not too far from you @AndyTravis
  6. On Facebook, don't see these often and there's someone on here who plays these I think? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/523501651624436/ Seems like a decent deal considering the pickup upgrade and hard case.
  7. I like 'em! Kinda a GB Spitfire built by Fender vibe going on with them.
  8. Have you stuck a multimeter across them to check resistance? Bartolini list it as 8.5/7 for the neck and 9.8 for the bridge.
  9. His were masterbuilt instruments, I think Jason Davis made one of them so they'll be as good as anything, he actually built a few interesting basses. Not your run of the mill Fender or even the custom shop series. Edit - here's some Fenders built by him:
  10. That's a perfect case in point - Fender made a high end custom shop bass to the spec of a talented player in a popular (at the time) band and it never got off the ground. IIRC Tye Zamora struggled to sell his own personal ones.
  11. I've always thought it's perfectly acceptable for Fender to just make Jazzes, Precisions, Teles, Strats, Jaguars etc. It's what they do and if there's one company that should be making the original classic designs that everybody and his uncle wants to own then it's them. Never really saw the demand for them to be groundbreaking in this day and age when there's plenty of companies doing that and producing great instruments the world over and we've never been more spoilt for choice - let Fender be Fender and make those boring old designs that sound pretty good and sell like hot cakes. That's why it's all the more disappointing when a company like Ashdown announces they're collaborating with a well known bass builder to produce a new line of basses and they turn out to be more Fender copies. Boooooooooooooooooooring.
  12. The Lodestone is a crummy old Fender shape though, like they wanted to design some super modern instrument but didn't have any ideas so just took a router to a J bass!
