  1. I have the earlier version (without bypass switch). Set "flat=center detent , it is somewhat hot-sounding with more mids and highs. And it has a Jazz-width neck. You can tweek it bassey if you like. Different than average Precision sounds. I have HW 1 Precisions also and they are also worthy basses.
  2. Once I used "door pulls ", as found on sliding closet doors. They were brass and didn't look cheap on a Vox Westminster cabinet.
  3. Let's not forget that John Entwistle had his favorite Precision refinished Salmon Pink. That is cool enough for me ! I have an eye on a pink Mustang PJ at Chicago Music Exchange.
  4. I got all the keys among several Hohner models. The Special 20 sounds good. There is a different tuning harp I want to try. There are other brands that are good (Lee Oscar ). A chromatic harmonica raises the pitch 1/2 step , like a vibrato that is fixed to only raise the pitch on a gtr. Listen to "I Was Born to Love Her"
  5. Marshall DSL 40 watt is good and cheaper than the UK Marshalls.
  6. Two very different channels. I like "Classic" , set clean.
  7. I used to play " We Are Family" 5 times a week when I had only a Gibson RD Artist bass. I didn't sound like the record for sure ! How would Ox play it ? That sound seems so studio-compressed when he poped the strings. (Chic, that is ) Didn't Bernard crank the e.q. mostly full-on ?
  8. It seems to be blue sparkle . Blue stain would have been nice for wood lovers.
  9. MY Bassman was a 1967 model ,rated at 50 watts RMS. It seemed to put out a lot less power though. A Kustom 200 was way louder.
  10. I went from a Kustom 200 315c to a Vox Westminster with two 18 cabinets. Absolutely no improvement in sound (1970). That Vox sure looked good. Most locals used a Peavey 215 and a Peavy head. This was a fairly loud,reliable amp. When I got 2 SVT cabinets in1975 people started to take notice. Little amps never were as good. Now my ABM 610 sounds as good as the Ampeg- I just can't lift it !
  11. Keith played a white one on a live DVD and even GAVE one to Buddy Guy on stage in NY. That Varitone switch looks cool , players ( like Keith) prefer no Varitone.
  12. If you like that SG you will like the new LP Jr. with one P-90 also.
  13. The Series 1 caught my attention as I read the Alembic price list. It might be $10,000 or so with regular wood. How many new 'Bics are sold each year ? 100? or 1000 ? There are more than 10 models.
  14. I like the green ones also on bass and the yellow for gtr. They are unbreakable like nylon but harder (percussive like a piano ) . Tortex is good for me.
  15. I don't like that tune much either , check out the high bassey notes on "Rain". You don't hear that sort of sound anymore. Also listen to the high notes on "With A Little Help From My Friends". Is that some phaser or chorus effect that makes it stand out ? Go back to Rubber Soul for his best parts that drive the song.
