  1. It's such a good job I'm broke at the moment!!! Oh, and standard string spacing on five string Status models is 18mm. It's 19mm on the four stringers. And yes, I am anally retentive enough to feel the difference when playing! Best of luck with the sale, mate - It's a lovely bass.
  2. She don't look half bad these days - And she's playing a Status... [IMG]http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l259/OutToPlayJazz/Suzi_Quatro_at_AIS_Arena_02.jpg[/IMG]
  3. Learning to read proper music would be a much more useful endeavour
  4. This one... [IMG]http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l259/OutToPlayJazz/011.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l259/OutToPlayJazz/013.jpg[/IMG]
  5. Yes, I always liked the 25th ever since it came out... But if I was to get another EBMM bass it would have to be the Big Al in candy apple red metallic and maple. Just something about it... Rich
  6. Rich, under no circumstances part with this bass - Having heard you play it in a band context and also having played it myself, it's a great bass and a keeper. Your band mates wouldn't know the difference if you put up signs, LOL! Rich
  7. Yes Marvin, it's the same stacked "concentric" system they originally had on the Jazz in the early 60's. Separate tone control for each volume. I caught a look on a video review and they said that the tone controls on the VM Jaguar are stepped, so click around to various points for various sounds. I'd like to try one myself. Rich
  8. Ah, more infinite variations on the same old two basses Yes, these "Blacktops" are a new range from the Fender Mexico stable, apparently. There's also the other new range just out from the same Chinese plant that makes the excellent quality Classic Vibe range of Squiers - Fender's "Modern Player" series. The one that looks of most interest there is the MP Jazz with the same twin jazz hum buckers as the BT Precision. Confused? Bloody hell, I am! I still think it's time they designed something new. Rich.
  9. Kristina - The one thing you didn't tell us as a "dabbling guitarist" is what you were planning on doing - Playing bass live on stage or at home? You'll find that the Classic Vibe range are very good - Chinese produced but amazing quality and finish, in fact made by the same people that produce the new Fender Modern Player series of instruments. As for amplification, if you're not planning on anything too mad, I'd recommend a small Roland Bass Cube. The 30w model is enough for a small rehearsal or theatre and the 100w model produces enough power for most situations you'll find yourself in. They're plenty around on the used market and they're very reliable - More than anything they give you a proper bass sound as opposed to the small 15w Fender offering you mentioned. Rich.
  10. [quote name='Wolverinebass' post='1215669' date='Apr 30 2011, 11:53 AM']The Chris Wolstenholme thing sounds interesting, but if it's just a graphite skin, I wouldn't be interested. Sure it'd still be great though. I certainly thought your 5 string graphite S2 was very, very impressive.[/quote] All of the "all graphite" instruments feature a graphite shell over either solid foam filling, or an alder block. Even the original S2000 was made in this way. To my knowledge, the only full composite instrument was the 4000/5000 series which was made of some kind of polymer but not graphite. But there is something about the sound of the all graphite instruments. It has even more of the graphite 3D "shimmer" and growl than the full wooden/laminated bodies. Rich.
  11. [quote name='Grand Wazoo' post='1229421' date='May 12 2011, 10:39 PM']Well in a nutshell, I went to the Bass Gallery in Camdem to buy me a Mark Bass Compressore pedal... and there were two Ding's on the wall the Natural Ash ABZ 5 and a Lyme Green Combustion, I tried them both and took home the ABZ ash one, just couldn't keep my hands off that bass. Later that day I went back home and compared the new purchase with my 4 EBMM's (Bongo 5, Big Al 5, 25th 5 and Stingray 5) and decided to abandon the EB ship and jump on the Ding's one. And that's what happened but RICH what happened to you all these months have you been on tour ?? Not heard a word from you for ages[/quote] Indeed... Sounds like you found your bass nirvana mate! As for me, yes I was playing a lot in the latter half of last year, combined with splitting up with the missus of eleven years standing, so been spending all my time rebuilding life from scratch. Getting there now, though. Have a lovely new house in North East Lincolnshire and the general malaise in the playing work (very worrying first quarter this year!) has thankfully eased a little & the work is coming in again. Good news is that I'm still enthusiastically flying the Status flag as always
  12. [quote name='Grand Wazoo' post='1229375' date='May 12 2011, 10:05 PM']Well only 127 miles separates you in Chester from the one place in UK that has the most Dingwall's in stock to try [url="http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Chester&daddr=Warwick,+CV34+6TH,+UK&geocode=FSKjKwMdYdPT_ylp9Zxi2cF6SDGf-NiNs2xiSQ%3BFeicHQMdhFDo_ymPBy3IpTR3SDHcsdW_QUtzHg&hl=en&mra=ls&sll=52.80403,-2.224245&sspn=1.180546,3.348083&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=9"]http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&sour...amp;t=h&z=9[/url] [url="http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Dingwall_Combustion.html"]http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_sp...Combustion.html[/url][/quote] Wow Wazoo... Where did all those Dingwalls come from? And more importantly, where did all the MusicMen go?! Rich
  13. Okay, so up for sale is my amazing Status S2 5-string, known as "Miss.Myrtle." It's been a long and difficult to reach decision, but I really don't play it and as usual, it's silly to have a mint condition instrument just sitting in it's case. Possibly the most beautiful S2 ever made and featured in Performing Musician magazine a couple of years ago in a review. Graphite through neck with phelonic fingerboard. 24 frets 34" scale Myrtle wood top. Beautiful mahogany body. Gold hardware. 18V active Status board 302 with 3 band eq & mid cut/flat/boost switch. Status branded Hiscox lifelite case. Full Status toolkit & all documentation. Priced to sell at £1800 ono. Buyer to collect or meet. NO TRADES. Feel free to call me on 07545 471037 if you'd like to chat about a deal, or email [email protected] VBR, Rich
