  1. I'd say knowing the chords helps a lot. Akin to doing the edges of a puzzle first to get the basic structure. Then you can understand the style and feel of the recorded player as they 'work around' the chord structure.

    Show us your rig!

    After some considerable time faffing with buying, selling, rebuying etc etc, I'm pretty happy with this now. Was going to sell the GK but it's just too good; it's very handy for ease of carriage and when I don't need the Fender. My latest bass purchase is included. I can't see myself wanting anything else anytime soon 🙂
  3. I had the same experience of details being overwritten. I suspect there's a bug on their booking site as it was not user friendly and such detail changes should not happen without clear prompts for the user to check.
  4. Correct. Phone chargers run at 5V normally.
  5. That looks wonderful. Shame I can't justify another P!
  6. Agreed, and thanks for your help too!
  7. After a fair bit of research, helped by a couple of threads on here and advice from @ead , I acquired this. I'm very happy! Great neck, good condition bar a few dinks here and there, frets in good nick and a superb player. The seller seemed to think, due to a 'U' serial no, that it was from 95-96 but I'm inclined to think it's a 2010 model given its condition and spec. As the neck shows, this is the JB-62US model that indicates an alder body and US spec pickups; lovely dark tort scratchplate on it too.

  9. TOO GOOD TO SELL, I'M KEEPING HOLD OF IT. Hi all, My Bassman 100T is now my main amp and this is too good to have just as a backup. Bought this year and includes footswitch plus original packaging. Polar seem to be the only UK stockists and this is £832 including delivery, so this is a chance to get one at a decent discount. It's in excellent condition, with only light home use and one band rehearsal. 4 band EQ with voicing and contour controls make this a really versatile piece of kit. The tube overdrive is pretty special too. I'll consider trades with appropriate cash adjustment for jazz basses (4 string, passive, 60s spacing) or a cheaper amp for backup use. Trials in Bristol most welcome and can discuss shipping. Review is here: https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/30090-Gallien-Krueger-Fusion-800S-bass-amp-head-review
  10. Following the tips and advice kindly shared on this thread, I enquired about this 62 RI: https://thebassgallery.com/products/fender-japan-62-jazz First glance suggests a 2000s VSP model but when I asked, they confirmed it was a 90s model with a refinished headstock. I wonder if they should have made that clear? Not a pointed question, just curious.
  11. I have the 500 Fusion S. It is superb. I've actually bought a used Bassman 100T which is my favourite but the GK is very good, just different. I thought about selling it but I think I'd regret it. The EQ is really good and the drive channel is pretty versatile. Lots of knobs and options so it's probably not one for those who don't like twiddling....
  12. Saw this on ebay last week, wonder if it's a BC'er? Tempted to have a look.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293653473913
  13. AH, it's the camera angle; they are indeed 70's spacing. Shame as I'd have snapped that up, I'm sure someone will nab it soon!
  14. Really useful info - I'm very tempted by a couple of MIJ Jazzes on eBay. My resistance is weakening!
  15. Managed to snaffle a used Bassman 100T after selling my first one due to size and weight. Now I have a car again, I thought I'd indulge in the valves once more! What a glorious bit of kit it is. It really sings and the drive is very versatile. Even on 1/4 power, it pushes out decent volume; I can't wait to try it at the next rehearsal. Quite a different beast to the GK in overall character and the overdrive, both with their benefits. The EQ, with its push/pull bass and treble pots, is really useful and you can get that scooped sound pretty easily. Now the question is "can I justify keeping the GK?" Might have to grab another cab and try both at the same time.....
  16. I find mine has a slightly more twangy feel than other P basses. It's one I will never sell as the neck on it is superb.

  18. Sold a bridge to Bill; nice and easy, good comms and a happy customer! Cheers chap
  19. Don't suppose you have any sound clips? I'm intrigued by the changeover of pickups.
  20. Good stuff. Glad these guys are getting some attention, 'tis rather lovely what they are putting out.
  21. These are superb. Only sold mine due to not having a car and it being a pain to move. If I was local I'd be having this, lovely!
  22. They're stuck on, not screwed. I bought an ex-demo model from Polar UK so I don't know if they were packaged separately or come affixed. Might be worth asking the guys at Polar as they are the main GK distributor in the UK.
