      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.

      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.

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

      European black walnut! yum!
      Specs?

    2. Phill

      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 👌

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

      Ooh! Share plz? :) 

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

    1. HazBeen

      HazBeen

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

  7. 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

  8. 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 😂

      Yes, your worship!

      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!

  12. Alan Gorrie is borrowing my Overwater for the Average White Band gig in Cardiff tonight, as his bass was nicked last night! Glad I could help out though!

      Happy to help, but you should really give me a more precise description of what I should be looking for! PM me if you prefer. :)

      @ead Either the latest or the one before it 

  15. Heres a post I've written about my new Overwater Custom P5 including pics, videos & specs https://www.phillcourtmusic.com/single-post/2019/05/14/My-Custom-Overwater-Bass

      Thanks for that. Some nice sounds and tight playing.

      You may have ordered/designed what just about adds up to being my dream bass. I hadn't particularly thought about an Overwater before but that really does tick a lot of boxes.

      Enjoy....

      ..and thanks again from the review.

    2. Phill

      Phill

      @SICbass Thank you for the kind words! Originaly I was gonna get a Sandberg VM 5 which is similar, but a lot of my mates have custom/signature Overwaters & I had a great deal on a custom built bass 

    3. SICbass

      SICbass

      You lucky bar steward 😉  Love the surf green btw.

  16. Giving the Mono Betty short strap a go, nice and comfortable so far 👍

    1. ezbass

      ezbass

      I have one of these, very comfy. However, you might find that the buckle slips. What I did was, once I'd found the right length, just put a couple of stitches each end of the buckle - sorted.

    2. Phill

      Phill

      @ezbass It does slip! thanks for the advice I've just stitched it now 👍

  17. Update! Glad to be back! My custom Overwater should be here within the month & I've been successfully nominated to the Musicians Union Exec Committee :)

      Congratulations!

      Because I said congratulations first, would you forgive me for (briefly) harbouring this image of you right now?

  24. I've been  very quiet as of late. I've gone profoundly deaf in the right ear due to an infection & have not gigged or undertook any music work in weeks. I've got an exploitative operation tomorrow & my first gig in months Saturday. Look after your ear health.

      Thanks Marc, The gig went well but there was such an overwhelming amount of noise coming into my good ear, it was hard to concentrate.

  25. Went to the Welsh premiere of Bohemian Rhapsody last Wednesday, really enjoyed it too. A few inconsistencies but overall thourougly enjoyed it 👍
