  1. Happy BC birthday to me. I’m 13 years old today. Cue grumpy teenager.

      Be afraid, be very afraid.

       

      So many of the, let’s say controversial, topics are chasing their own tails.

  3. Maybe time to book an appointment with the dentist. The repair he did on my broken tooth (he drilled out the filling and put in a new one, that was it) has failed miserably from day one...and that was about 2 months ago I have a huge hole in my tooth and tooth ache every day, for the last 6 weeks. But I hate dentists...

      If there's not much salvageable of the tooth, a cap is the best way forward (or go with a gap). Root canal pre cap is also sensible, I speak from experience of having to have a cap drilled through to do an RC as the cap wouldn't come off. I'm an odontophobe too. At least I was. If you can find someone who is sympathetic to your fear, it makes all the difference. It took me years to find a dentist who understood my fear and I was happy to visit, but I did. Unfortunately, I then moved 500+ miles away. :facepalm:

      Your wish is my command. It's the least I could do for a fellow BCer and all round nice chap.

  5. How exciting to be briefly Banned! Living on the edge

  6. Now here's something I never imagined happening... actually considering going back to a 4 as my main gigging weapon. I love my 5s but I just fancy a change.

      I only have the one fiver these days. But having recently bought a decent Mustang, my long scales have been feeling unloved and have cause to feel twitchy about their long term status.

      Nothing like having a child who will back you up for bass purchases. A keeper 😉😂.

  11. Failed acoustic guitarist, always fancied trying bass but never took it any further until seeing a colleague at work picking his up from beside his desk and turning the amp behind him on!  Besides, with my wife having a horse my hobbies will ALWAYS pale into cost insignificance... 🙂

      Woo, and I say, hoo! The beast has landed, only 4 days late. NBD thread later.

      Already done, it’s the disappointment that really burns and that it went from next day delivery, to 4 day delivery. I emailed DPD for an explanation, but radio silence has ensued.

  16. I see Fender are celebrating 75 years by reissuing all the usual suspects, again.

     

    1. ezbass

      ezbass

      Yep: Rock/Fender/ Hard Place. It’s difficult for them, but they need to stick with a new design, it’ll be slow to begin with, but they’ll get there. I wonder what we’d be playing now if Leo & Co hadn’t ground it out in the early days (it couldn’t have been easy)? They should’ve tried harder with the Dimension bass, with some high profile  ‘name player’ endorsements. I can only think of Yolanda Charles playing one.

  17. Lockdown symptoms: really weird haircut, and swapping out my EB Cobalt flats for a set of D'Addario steel rounds. Sound like stilettos through plate glass. This'll keep me amused for another day.

    1. ezbass

      ezbass

      Wow, that's a big change! I'm wondering about replacing my Cobalts with LaBella nylon wrapped flats on my Maruszczyk fretless (I already have them on my Rob Allen) but £40+ is a lot to spend on a lockdown induced whimsy.

  18. Oh oh! Short scale GAS! 

    1. ezbass

      ezbass

      Tried the Gibson DC, s'alright, not the best set up or hardware; Gretsch budget version, awesome for the money; Fender Mustangs, really liked the JMJ signature, others OK but the body feels a bit small for my frame. The one I really want to try is the SWB-1 (@Chownybass rubs hand with glee 😁) but Anderton's won't have stock until the 20th according to their site :( . I've tried de-tuning one of mine 2 steps and putting a capo at the 2nd fret (pretty much 30" scale) and I am liking it. Now if I could just get a Mustang neck to fit my P type and get it intonate...

      I feel someone on BC should fill their boots. The 5 string with the J Sonics seems a steal.

  20. Just joined the Darkglass family. The boss even encouraged me to buy it when I said “I’ll think about it first” after boring her for 45 minutes in Andertons 😎

      Boring = relentlessly wearing down. Top tactic.

      I was thinking of going the extra yard and getting the SBP1 here (thanks to your post) but I see it has now been sold. You snooze, you lose.

      Thanks for that, I was hoping to keep the cost down though (at least today 😉).

  23. Happiness is: picking up your custom built basses after having played an off the shelf bass for a while and realising how right you got it.

  24. Don’t you just hate it when you receive shipping info, only to find that it’s scheduled for a day when you’re out ☹️.

      No, FedEx have ignored my rescheduling and it's out for delivery today!
