  1. I’ve spent the best part of 10 minutes setting this up and it’s a beauty.
  2. Cool video. Imagine attempting to get away with those lyrics today?
  3. I’ve recently bought two TRBs and they are exceptional instruments
  4. I was merely offering an explanation. I’d prefer to stick my precious parts on a vice than play in a wedding band so I can provide no insights into the world. Personally, if you don’t know how to use effects, don’t use them.
  5. A lot of songs have synth bass now. Guess it could be that?
  6. This worked for my cabinet... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Briwax-FILLER-STICKS-MEDIUM-SHADES/dp/B010ATLYTQ/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=wax+sticks+wood+repair&qid=1617623707&sr=8-5
  7. I did this on an oak cabinet and the repair is imperceptible. Truly great stuff!
  8. Looks like my old Kay bass. Weighed about 5.5kg
  9. These are amazing. Seriously, they’re brilliant and I love mine.
  10. What’s even worse is that the guy sells guitars and gear. It got I check his previous listings he obviously knows what he’s doing, so this is a blatant attempt to defraud which is such a shame. Why bother disappointing someone for a few hundred quid...?
  11. I can see your predicament. Those RA basses aren’t unique, but pretty close of you’ve modified them. Personally, I have insurance but I use a £300 bass for stuff like open mics or jazz sessions. It’s just easier if I enjoy a drink or whatever.
  12. Monster players but god I hate that sort of late 70s/80s smooth jazz. All so horrendously over produced and oddly soulless.
  13. I’m not sure that’s entirely true. There will be a ceiling price for these and while the market is hot at the moment, it’s highly volatile. Fender basses aren’t particularly rare (if you have the cash, you could find pretty much anything you wanted on the market) but collecting older instruments is fashionable, hence the rapid rise. Again, we’re knot talking about handcrafted artisan products here. These instruments don’t sound much better than modern versions, it’s nostalgia and that’s seductive to those who remember the 50s - 70s but preposterous to those who didn’t. Take Wals as an example. Expensive in the 80s, cheap as chips on the 90s and 00s, now commanding quite frankly ludicrous sums. Anyone paying £6k for a Wal and imagining it’ll maintain and increase its value is possibly a little deluded. My point is, if you’ve got the cash and you want to spend it, do so. Just don’t imagine it’ll increase in value forever. Oh, and if you use it you’ll have to deal with worn down frets, dodgy pots, weak pickups and scratchy jack sockets. make any changes and kiss goodbye to your 100% originality! Personally, my 60s fenders stay in their cases. I should probably sell them, but they have intrinsic value to me.
  14. Guitars are speculative investments with little intrinsic value and easily replicability. There’s no reason why the should continue to increase in value, and like many of these things, once the core demographic shuffles off (men of a certain age who grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s) the demand is likely to fall. By all means spend your cash on what you like, but the vintage guitar market is as fragile as any other market out there.
