      Ooooh - what have you bought? Do tell.....
      I must admit, the fact that it's more than one does make suspicious that you have won the lottery ;)

      You're right you shouldn't have...as your punishment you should have to send them to me so that you learn your lesson.

      Harsh maybe, but sometimes tough love is the best way.

      New Overwater soon & a P Bass coming today hopefully lads! 

  2. That was my first step really 😂 I’m not one to tell people to get stuff but yeah do it! 😂
  3. Thanks! I find it’s got a bit more heft & weight to the sound compared to the EB modern ones
  4. I was a bit hesitant at first, but I think it "classes" it up a little bit haha!
  5. Yeah, a few dings here & there as usual but all pretty decent holding up well
  6. I got one!

      Ah that's amazing!! Body looks like mine, cept with the proper old school bridge + mutes. Really love the bound neck as well

  7. After a long(ish) search & after exhausting all other options including getting Ernie ball to make a new one, BFR's & five strings I finally got my hands on this exquisite bass. Via a private sale & at a decent price I've finally got one! Plays absolutely beautifully & weighs a tonne too! Fretboard was swapped a few years ago by a studio in London & new bound ebony fretboard installed. At first I wasn't really keen on the binding, but it's growing on me. Hipshot D Tuner installed (I have the OG tuner) but alas no original hardcore. This is my second ever vintage bass after my 72 Jazz & I've fallen in love! Unfortunately I don't think I'll be using her for every gig I'm hired for, but I will try my dammed hardest! Serial starts No. B00.

      I had GAS for one of them once. It didn't end well for my bank balance.

      And a short-scale (sigh).

      My 5HH was such that I didn't need to practise. I just opened the case and it would start to play.
      That's the mating call of a true musical instrument.

  10. New Overwater is all specced out apart from top wood!

    1. DiMarco


      European black walnut! yum!

    2. Phill


      That does sound nice! Still can’t make my mind up! It’s based off of the new hollow body single cut bass. 6 string fretted 👌

  11. Finally working on my specs for a new Overwater 😁😁

    1. Rich


      Ooh! Share plz? :) 

  12. Looking for a pedal bridge of sorts from a UK manufacturer, only finding American providers who don't ship to the UK!

    1. HazBeen


      Ikea shelf insert and some tweaking might work. Will cost an hour and 3 quid.

  13. It's been so long since I've been able to browse the forum properly! I've got a new update blog to share too 👍 https://www.phillcourtmusic.com/single-post/2019/11/16/Bassicly-Speaking-November-2019-Update

  14. I joined up to the "other" site and like you said Quilly just not very friendly IMO
