  1. I recently had a similar problem with a DV Mark guitar head, after taking the top off it didn’t take long to sort out the problem, a loose ribbon cable connector from the output board to the main board just needed pushing fully home, I believe connectors working loose or not being fully home in the first place is a common MB fault, good luck, Mike.
  2. Back in the day when I had my headless Sei Original 5er, I used Labella double ball end flats from Bass Direct, from memory you had to buy a 4 string set plus a separate low B.
  3. Initially had TI’s on my old Overwater Progress, but couldn’t get on with the low tension, swapped them around on a couple of other basses with the same results, just felt too loose for me. The Labella LT flats are easier on my fingers without being too floppy, but it all comes down to personal taste in the end.
  4. On my 30” scale Telebass, I have Labella SS low tension flats, also fitted them to a mates 70’s Musicmaster, my favourite flats by far, much nicer than TI flats or Chromes in my opinion.
  5. Warmoth ‘74 painted 2 piece ash body and Bakelite scratch plate, Bareknuckle 58 pickup, reshaped Korean squier neck.
  6. Did a trade on another forum with one of my guitar amps and this was the result.

  8. I’ve never won the lottery, but I still feel like I’m the luckiest man on the planet !!!!! Having had some time to bond with the Tele, I will post up a NBD thread soon and talk about the pickup and switching options.
  9. Absolute stunner , perhaps we should have a specific “ owners club “ thread !!! They are certainly in a class of their own, just wait for the reaction when you gig with it, enjoy, Mike.
  10. Labella every time for me, 760N are on the Jabba Fretless, I also use their Low Tension SS Flats on everything else, these are now on the Jabba Telebass, as I find rounds or anything else uncomfortable these days. In the past I’ve tried TI Flats, Dadario ground wounds, Status and a few others , but for me Labella are the clear winner. The SS flats are a little brighter and I find they work well on a fretted bass, giving a lovely slinky feel, as well as great tone. BassDirect seems to have the best selection as well as price and excellent service.
  11. Now cohabiting happily with another !!!
  12. For all those that couldn’t make it this year, you can still be the “King of Cool “ and order a T shirt from @scrumpymike while stock lasts. I was lucky enough not only to get a T shirt, but to come home with something Tele shaped as well, time to start saving for next year !!!
  13. I will second that, Mike and his merry band have pulled off another stellar event, with a special mention of the rhubarb crumble, looking forward to next year already.
  14. I would agree as well, having been double jabbed for some time I’ve always been cautious about taking risks, but if you had negative results beforehand I can’t see an issue. However, as always the decision has to be right for you and I would be respectful of your choice.
  15. I’m on the list and will definitely be there, will miss not meeting up with Frank again tho’
  16. I’m a bit light on surplus gear so will bring something alcohol related. I’ve also started “fasting” now, in preparation for lunch !!!!
  17. If it’s not too far from the bash, perhaps we can organise a relay of deps for you !!!!!
  18. A man of impeccable taste !!!! Hopefuly we can meet up at the SW Bash and swap notes .
  19. Please can you amend the list of items I’m bringing, having a bit of restructuring with my bass set up, both the Gibson EB-0 and SWR have gone to new homes. Just bringing the Jaba fretless and a 112 cab with a lightweight head, there may be a new addition to the family soon.
