  1. Music Man use poplar for some of their solid finishes IIRC.

    Do, he is held high esteem amongst our BC brethren.
  3. Depends which band. In one, I’m front and centre grooving with the lead vocalist, in the other, I’m at the back letting others be the centre of attention.

    Very much this.

    Very well done, sir. At about 2:35 I felt like you were channeling Kate Bush era John Giblin, which is a good thing. 👏👏👏

    Rory Gallagher And Gerry McAvoy

    I can see why Donal would say that, but it's not from his POV. I saw Rory with GMc (can't remember who was on drums) at the Hammersmith Odeon back in the 70s. Amazing energy, but the worst PA sound ever, the frequencies were nausea inducing. Still, I can say that I saw him.

    Rory Gallagher And Gerry McAvoy

    I recommend ‘Riding Shotgun’ by Gerry McEvoy. It’s a well written, good read and an insight into working with Rory.
  8. I’m not sure if someone has already alerted you to this, but if they haven’t, here’s a JV on our own for sale board
  9. I did a side by side with a Fenders 50s reissue, a 44-64 and a Fender Roadworn. It was a close toss up between the RW and the Lakland. I went with the RW eventually, I think because there was nothing in it and the RW was cheaper (at least back then). They've gone up a bit now https://www.gak.co.uk/en/fender-road-worn-50s-precision-bass-2-colour-sunburst-maple/19354 (I realise that Biggar is a really long way from Brighton, but distance selling and all that).
  10. There is also the Lakland Skyline 44-64 to consider if you can find one in the spec you're after.
  11. As a Maruszczyk fanboy, I have to park this here https://www.public-peace.de/bass-guitars/maruszczyk/jake-l/jak-l-4str/941-jake-l-4p-human-nature-classic160508

    Having been raised in a house that frequently featured big band music, it will always have a special place in my heart. Yesterday, I was introduced to a piano player and band leader I’d not heard of before by a Scott's Bass Lessons YT post on his influences, Michel Camilo. It doesn’t hurt that the band includes the legend that is Anthony Jackson, who's is killing it. Warning: jazz, loud shirt and massive talent content.

    Cool bass and you'll be happy with the cobalts.

    Fun little 30 bass comparison

    That was hard, well it was to pick just 3. Some were, "No!" straight away, but there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing for me. I landed on the Lakland, Maruszczyk and Fodera Monarch eventually. If I could've had a 4th, it would've been the Yamaha Attitude. The Fender P and J relics were in the running for a good long time too and I quite liked the Smith. Obviously my ears are biased as I own a couple of Maruszczyks and had a Lakland 5502 about 4 years ago.

    Drummer Related General Band Moan

    Charge the drummer the full cancellation fee of the rehearsal rooms if he cancels last minute, that’ll focus him on committing properly or letting new blood in. Obviously, let him know this in advance and soon.
