  1. I admit I haven't actually tried it myself, but those I've seen look too narrow for a P pickup - though they may vary. I think it would also be closer to the neck than the regular P position.
  2. You'll need knobs. For finishing the Crimson Guitars stains and oils are nice. With a bit of effort you can get a very pretty finish without having to spray anything.
  3. Sung by their current bass player, about their old one
  4. This one's about Lemmy and includes the line "he's playing bass and melting your face" And this one's about Fat Mike, as far as I can tell
  5. I've done this a couple of times too - I was scared to try it at first but it worked really well.
  6. True - I had a Hartke 810 up for sale for peanuts for ages way before the virus came along. Ended up building 210s with the speakers, and giving the empty cabinet away to a guy who said he was going to try and cut it up to build a cajon!
  7. I suspect it also depends where the perpendicular fret is. I put mine at 7 as I thought it would make things feel a bit more familiar at the lower frets, compared to having it up at 12 - seems to have worked.
  8. I just built a multiscale 4 string - 900mm to 850mm, with the perpendicular fret at the 7th a la Dingwall. I leave it in the rehearsal room, while all my other basses at home are standard frets, 34 inch scale or shorter. I've had no problems switching between the two - it's really not that much of an adjustment.
  9. I used these in a build https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/113988807342 - well, actually I haven't finished it yet, so can't completely vouch for them, but they seem pretty solid. I went for 6mm simply because I already had a router bit of that size. I might have used smaller ones otherwise. Regarding length, I suppose it would be good to have them about the same as the truss rod, but probably not essential. There was a bass build on the Crimson Guitars YouTube channel a while back where he used four 4mm rods, two on each side. Perhaps you could do that and sort of stagger them so they run the whole length of the neck - the inner two starting at the nut end and the outer two ending at the heel end.
  10. Everything About You by Ugly Kid Joe. My old band supported Whitfield Crane at some dive in Newcastle last year and I got to share this fact with him 😂
  11. I agree. The GZR is a perfectly good pickup and the super easy install is a bonus, but it certainly didn't blow me away when I tried it. I wouldn't consider it a necessary upgrade to a p-bass which already has a pretty decent pickup in it.
  12. And here's a 200: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Rumble-200-Watt-V3-Bass-Amp-Combo-barley-used-in-excellent-condition/283883654794?hash=item4218c8ce8a:g:HM8AAOSwx0Few87V
  13. I agree with the above. Fender Rumble amps are great. You can get them in pretty much any size, they sound great and weigh nothing.
  14. Hi! Do you need a combo or just a head? What kind of power/size are you looking for? What sort of gigs is it going to need to handle?
