  1. What an absolute gem, looking forward to to following the 5 string build, the fretless is still proving it’s worth in the trio, only rehearsing these days, hopefully better times next year, stay safe, Mike B.
  2. It was only a matter of time, I’m hooked as well 😃
  3. Big thumbs up for Neil @ Newtone Strings, basically he will make whatever you want & I don’t think he is expensive in that respect. I have used his Heritage acoustic guitar strings for many years now, if like me you have wrinkley arthritic fingers they are an absolute joy to play and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
  4. Words alone cannot describe, even though all of our gigs have been postponed for the foreseeable future, I’ve almost managed to justify why I need at least two more basses !!!!
  5. I still miss my 5 string with the low B, the problem for me in the end, was the width of the neck stressing my arthritic old digits, but playing with a sax those extra low notes were a god send. Whether it would be possible to make a low B work on 29” would be quite a challenge in itself, it would be interesting to know from other 5 string players which would be more useful high C or low B tuning. As always good luck with any future project & I would love to see a fiver at some point.
  6. Looking forward to the next SW bash to see another fine example of craftsmanship 👍
  7. Anyone using one of the above for gigging, are 2x8’s a bit too “toppy”. My current SWR 2 x 10 setup gives me the tone I like but it’s getting a bit heavy in my advancing years .
  8. If I had a calendar it would be on it. Frank, check out Tiffins all you can eat curry house, only a couple of miles from the venue 🥵🥵🥵
  9. I think you had better make another thumb rest, that is a stroke of genius 👍👍👍
  10. Absolute stunner !!!! by the way I wouldn’t let the wife see these pics, you might have to do a refinish on that table 😂
  11. Hang on in there Frank it won’t be long now, played an outdoor wedding gig on Saturday & had nothing but positive comments on my bass sound, Mike.
