    Why do Pros use a P Bass...

    My Westy P sounds a bit like it, on full tone, with preamp pushed up high, and through headphones. I wonder is your action low enough? The basses in the clip all seem pretty darned low. 👍
  2. Running sans pickguard is overrated anyway. 👍

    Bonding with the wrong bass

    I can understand that. 👍 I bought a Westfield P bass before xmas, for £60. Which arrived In what I'd have to say is "as-new" unplayed condition! What a bargain. But this "Vintage" J bass I picked up a few days ago - Wow! It's a lot more "2nd hand", but I've never had such a honky, funky, raspy thing in my life!! It's nowhere near as loud as the P bass, but what a sound! (and it's so slim in the neck). I'm so happy, I'm tempted to buy another one as a spare. 😁 VJ and Westy:
  4. I also want to know what's under there. Could be some smuggled blood diamonds or anything! 😁

    Plagiarism

    Thanks, I enjoyed that. 😊 The classical world of serious cover versions!
  6. I did not know about these secret spaces. 😁

    This is exactly what I'm playing right now (but have switched to the P bass). C'mon, have a slap, Mr T. 😁

    Maybe I'll put some stickers on it! 👍 What I should do is sand the bugger down and Danish oil the body, but I'm having too much fun slapping the fosters out of it for now. 😁 edit: haha, when I type "fosters" the swear filter changes it to fosters. 😁 edit edit: Buggery is much more rude than just doing a wee. 😪

    That's kind of ya mate, but although I've only had the J for two days, that fake roadrash finish is really bothering me. And it needs a pickguard!

    That's lush Mr T. The white looks very nice! (I'd keep the black plate too, but there's nothing wrong with having a couple in different colours). 😎 I wouldn't have chosen the "battlefield" finish for my J, but second hand choices are more limited. So I now have a false P and a false J for less than 200 quid for the pair... just need some orange paint now!

    Is that one of those old fashioned paper thingies? A "book" or something? 😁 You wanna get over to the P bass thread with that.
