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

      Doh! Just can’t count today. 🥱😴

      Now we have to put up with you taking very long showers and using up all the tissues.

       

      Happy Birthday!

      I've given up on birthdays,   I still do grumpy though,   happy birthday fella. 

  2. Just typed ‘live environment’ in a thread but autocorrect decided it should be ‘love envelope’ :facepalm::lol:

      If you can get a "love envelope" - do you post it using a Sex stamp?

      Hah. Was it a First Large or Special Delivery?

      Sure, it works in your bedroom.  But does it still growl in a love envelope?

  3. Bass meant to be arriving tomorrow, paid for premium delivery, not arriving until Tuesday. Disappointing, DPD (disappointing premium delivery).

      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.

      “Couldn’t find the address,”! WTAF? Returned to depot, delivery tomorrow; not holding my breath frankly.

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

  4. NBD incoming. Watch out for the appropriate thread. 

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

      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.

      Indeed. Leo's impact to musical instrument design has always fascinated me - he wasn't a player himself, yet I don't think any other individual has contributed so much. Both with things he designed directly, and the influence on others' designs.

      The situation today kind of reminds of of the Ford statement "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

      We need a modern day Leo!

      I think it's more like Burger King's CEO on their failed attempt to sell salads 'We asked our customers what they wanted - turns out they lied' . 

  6. Oh oh! Short scale GAS!

      This is acceptable only if it's one of ours! 😂

      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...

      A shameless plug to a cracking short scale and a wonderful seller :lol:

       

  7. Looks like Guitar Guitar are having a bit of a Lakland clearout, https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/clearance/lakland/guitars/bass/?Ordering=2

      I looked - was tempted but walked away.

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

  8. Gah, missed out on a Sadowsky SBP-2 because eBay was playing silly beggars 🤬 grrr!

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

      No worries! I love my Sadowskys, that pre gives me my sound more than anything else out there...

      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. 

  9. 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.

      Good work sir! What are the basses in question?

  10. Kudos to @thebassgallery for my recent commission sale through them. Easy, quick, no muss, no fuss. Also provided an excuse to go there and try to find my next purchase. Cheers guys.

  11. 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 ☹️.

      However, this will be me on Thursday...

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

  12. E-C tuning, where have you been all this time? Loving it!

    1. CameronJ

      CameronJ

      It is fun isn’t it? My first 5 string was tuned E-C!

      I like, but haven't really got a use for it.  I find B-G tuning means I can play higher up the neck instead.  I prefer the sound up there anyway :)

  13. Well pleased with the results from my recent recording session with my Tom Petty tribute https://www.facebook.com/heartfakersband/?hc_ref=ARRcWgx8vn_Kwfj-SPRAeZ7M_TrGAx5qVpTM6faIZWYKgSkoyj5RmceQawTn36EwhVA&fref=nf
