  1. NBD soon! Have a guess 🤨

    This does happen occasionally, but I can never remember what it is I say that triggers the reaction.
  2. Top Of The Pops

    I remember being in school and my fellow pupils asking if you’d seen TOTP the previous night and then discussing it; good times.
  3. Joe Bonamassa in Brighton last night

    I didn’t realise that JB had changed bass players again, the last I knew it was Carmine Rojas. Good to hear that the bass was well mixed and audible, right down to the different tones. I would’ve like to have heard/seen that gig.
  4. The Official MARUSZCZYK CLUB!

    Ooh, hello lovely.
  5. Identify Mike Oldfield documentary bass

    I’d still have my 4 string if it wasn’t for the narrowness of the fretboard at the nut, just too narrow for my hands. Strangely, the fiver waswide compared to other fivers IIRC.
  6. Identify Mike Oldfield documentary bass

    And damn fine basses they were too. That and the Stu Hamm sig bass were probably the best non ‘standard’ basses (P or J that it is) Fender made IMO.
  7. The Official MARUSZCZYK CLUB!

    Not a million miles from what I have in mind (not that I ‘need’ another one).
  8. The Official MARUSZCZYK CLUB!

    Yep. I have 2 of them, fantastic basses that lose nothing except weight.
  9. Oooer - not for me

    I’m thinking toilet seat.
  10. The Official MARUSZCZYK CLUB!

    I see that the Elwood Lis being added to the configurator in a few days. Dangerous times ahead

    Don't waste your time fighting the GAS and the inevitable outcome, push the button
  12. London bass guitar show 2018

    I missed his performances, do you care to share said settings at all?
  13. PRS John Mayer errrrm Strat.

    Not PRS’s first foray into Stratdom, but certainly the poorest example. The EG is a much more refined version of the big F’s best seller.
  14. London bass guitar show 2018

    Following my visit and being knocked out by Bobby Vega, I’ve been playing with a with pick on songs I’d never consider playing with one. It has been quite revealing on how much fun it can be. Not everything works, but I was surprised by the songs that it did work with, especially as it added an even more funky vibe (I Wish for example). Check out his album ‘Sketches of Bob’ on Spotify. Sad to hear that the Eich stand was still loud on Sunday, it really isn’t fair on the other exhibitors or any nearby clinics (SBL’s was in the room next door). When I was watching Guy Pratt on the main stage, there was someone from the exhibitors section plainly audible during his stand up; that’s gotta be too loud, surely. This seems to be a common complaint every year, but nothing is ever done about it beyond lip service.
  15. Our Fascination With Fretless

    I saw TF at a guitar show in Birmingham years ago, on the Fender stand, I thought his bass was going to yelp, run away and hide in a corner he was beating it so much.
