    This is well worth a watch if you haven’t already seen it.

    Ibanez KTS Titanium neck rods.

    The brand new SR1300 I looked at a few months back had Tags saying KTS rods in the case so I think they all have them.

    Hercules GS523B Guitar Rack mod

    I’ve just picked up the 5 guitar version and thinking of modding. @Bigguy2017 Before I drill, do you think I could go a bit more than the 40mm gap you suggest to get the basses even more upright or do you think the bars would be too far apart?

    Irig / GarageBand question

    I’ve ordered an irig and want to import audio tracks from Apple Music to play over and record myself. i haven’t used GarageBand before but just had a play around and it won’t let me import stuff from my Apple Music library. To get around this I wondered if I play a track from Apple Music with a 1/8 stereo cable out of my phone headphone output (with lightning adapter) to 1/4 left/right mono plugs then record the individual left + right channels via the irig would this effectively get a fairly reasonable quality stereo mp3 track from my Apple Music library? if this doesn’t work are there any other workarounds? edit- will be using GarageBand on an iPad (I don’t have a Mac)

    Morning finger stiffness?

    Recently got back into playing a few months ago after a bit of a hiatus, probably just overdoing it as some days I’ve been playing for a couple of hours or more - the longer I’ve been playing the day before the stiffer my fingers the next day.
  7. Anyone else get this? left hand finger joints are stiff first thing in the morning if I’ve played the bass the day before, initially can’t make a fist. Wears off within a few minutes of wriggling my fingers. Just want to make sure I’m not doing any damage or starting with arthritis!

    NBD Ibanez SR1400 Mojito

    How do these look in the flesh? I’ve looked at a few pictures and the green seems to vary from bright green to a duller darker green - could be they change a fair bit with ambient lighting? Also considering the natural flat SR1300.
  9. Thinking about picking up an SR1300 with the ash natural flat finish. Just wondering how durable these are compared to a shiny poly finish? Will it pick up finger prints, get shiny patches or develop beer stains? Anyone have one of these or the similar SR600 who can shed some light?
  10. Thanks Aiden, I’m not sure I’d be able to neatly do the trussrod cutout with my dremel, so I’ll most like shell out for a new one.
  11. Mines a bit different, the truss rod hole is a bit bigger and it doesn’t have the screw above the neck pickup. By the way, your neck doesn’t look quite straight, though it might be the angle of the picture. Mine was like that- just slacken off the screws on the neck plate slightly and push the headstock until the E and G string are equidistant from the edge of the fingerboard and the retighten. I swear mine played better after adjusting.
  12. Reggaebass - I see you have black screws too, is that standard on the fender black guards - think it looks a bit better. The only issue with these ones is mine has the truss rod adjustment at the bottom of the neck, so need the.cutout on the pickguard.
  13. Hi Basschatters, I’ve got a sunburst jazz with the standard tort pickguard. I know its the classic vintage look, but I’m not keen on tort and thinking of changing to a black one. The proper Fender pickguards are pretty steep (around £45 with postage). Has anyone gone for a cheapo aftermarket one and if so was it OK? I’d rather bite the bullet and get a Fender one if the aftermarket ones look cheap, but if you can’t tell the difference then I don’t see the point in spending the extra. Thanks
