      Sale linked to the extra bass accidentally ordered when you rang Overwater?


    3. Phill


      @LukeFRC partially 😂

    4. SpondonBassed


      Should've applied for an Overwater overdraft

  2. Rang overwater for an update & have ordered another 😩😂

    1. LukeFRC


      that's sure some upselling!

    2. eude


      Can I recommend email next time? ;)

    3. lownote


      I did that and this time they copied the restraining order to me electronically

  3. Just had some update pictures on my latest Overwater come through 😍 Not gonna share them yet though!

      I'll make a post when more bits have been screwed together haha!

      I think posting a new-bass related status update and then refusing to provide pictures for the rest of us to drool over could be construed as rule-breaking behaviour.

      Rule 6 plainly states:

      "You also explicitly agree that you shall not:
      ( a ) provide any content or conduct yourself in any way that may be construed as;
      unlawful, illegal, threatening, harmful, abusive, harassing, stalking, tortuous, defamatory, libellous, vulgar, obscene, offensive, objectionable, pornographic, designed to interfere...".

      There are no pictures. I object to this. Therefore, objectionable behaviour. *bangs gavel* guilty as charged. Cough up the pics or prepare for a ban.

      I'll Wait for the Bass Police to run up first, then I'll hand over the evidence ;)

  4. Gasping for a Noble DI!!

      To be fair Kev you could say the same about any piece of equipment we use live.  Who will notice the difference between a £100 Harley Benton P or a £4k Pino sig Fender?  After all the compression, EQing, speakers, room etc, both will sound like P Basses.

    3. Kev


      Hopefully you'd notice a difference in how it plays, otherwise indeed, why bother!  I doubt at a gig you would notice what a high quality DI is doing to your tone.  Or, at least, id enjoy some blind sound tests to see if people are noticing what they think they're noticing :D

    4. Phill


      I'd have to agree with you both! On both counts! It will be used in a studio though 

  5. Audition tomorrow! Might be playing some country very soon :) 

    1. Lozz196


      Good luck, hope it goes well

    2. Phill


      Thanks Lozz, I got the job!

  6. UPS delivered a bass I'd sold & it's turned up damaged. Today was going so well!

      Hope you can get it resolved 🤞🏻
      I must admit the idea of shipping has me breaking out in a sweat. 

    3. NikNik


      Me, too. Some guy wants me to ship my Ibby Ashula to Thailand. Told him absolutely no way! I'd be nervous sending to Tadcaster,  never mind Thailand!

    4. musiqman


      That is why I always insist on a case and double walled cardboard boxes (like the Reverb branded ones) when shipping privately.

      What a terrible news :(

  7. Anyone know any UK boutique pedal builders who makes Auto-Wah's?

    1. JapanAxe


      ThorpyFX were planning to release a pedal based on the old Lovetone Meatball but apparently that's gone on the back burner because of component supply issues.


      Sorry, that doesn't help you much!

    2. JapanAxe


      Why not buy the auto wah kit of your choice (based on whatever boutique pedal) from somewhere like Jed's Peds or Fuzzdog, and either build it yourself or pay/convince a friend to do it for you.

    3. Phill


      JapanAxe I like your thinking! Thanks :)

  8. OC-2 collection is building up slowly!

      Nooooo! Set them free! I can hear their cries!

    3. Kev


      If Status comments could include GIFs, there would be one of Ryan Reynolds asking a question right now.

    4. Sarlscharisma


      …and one of them I suspect is mine 😉

  9. Absolutely thrilled with this Stingray! IMG_0432.thumb.jpg.c8694df521637823aa2e31af5e7832c5.jpg

      It's a Musician Classic Stingray 5 in natural with a lovely maple fingerboard

  11. Sold an OC2, Bought an OC2 its's a vicious cycle!

    1. TheGreek


      I thought it was an Octave pedal!!??  

    2. Owno


      Aye! I sold one pedal a couple of weeks ago and just bought two new pedals. It's a vicious cycle, indeed.


  12. Starting off the year strong by trying to find a nice new/old Stingray!

      I endorse this resolution as a very good idea 💯

    3. Dazed

      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 ;) 

    3. TheGreek


      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.

    4. Phill


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

  16. I got one!

    3. AinsleyWalker

  17. Got the GAS for a fretless Stingray at the moment!

    2. Higgie


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

    3. petecarlton


      And a short-scale (sigh).

    4. BassTractor


      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.

  18. 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 👌

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

    1. Rich


      Ooh! Share plz? :) 

  20. 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.

  21. 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

  22. Thanks for the help with the driving licence title change guys & gals! My title will remain a mystery but if you like you can call me Lord for now 😂

    1. Teebs


      Yes, your worship!


    2. Ricky 4000

      Ricky 4000

      Pictures (of the licence), or it didn't happen! 😛

  23. Does anyone know who is currently playing bass for Rita Ora by any chance?

      Sibob you genius! Thank you!! And Hiram too! Much appreciated! 

    3. Drax


      and not one mention of him playing a Ritter Cora..  

    4. Soledad


      Hot player. And nowt wrong with Rita either. Respect.

  24. Just took delivery of the collectors Joe Dart edition of BGM plus this cool t shirt :)


  25. Glad I could help out Average White Band! They gave me a few goodies too 👌 hope he gets his Jazz back ASAP! 


    1. SpondonBassed


      Nicely done.

    2. Marc S

      Marc S

      Very nice indeed! :)

    3. PhilAllGaps1


      Nice Phill! I know Freddy V the sax player very well and he mentioned the theft of the instruments, what a drag for Alan and Onnie, however I'm sure Alan was very glad to be leant such a killer instrument!
