    Retrovibe T30

    Well , anyone else tried one yet ? Telecaster body and pickups with a lovely shortscale neck. ive not had it long enough (nor am I good enough )to define the sound. BUT I love the look and the sounds I can get out of it with the supplied Rotosound strings. It sits nice and is a real looker to me .
  5. Ok on a big scratch plate ?
  6. I collected this bass this morning. Superb condition. A real credit to its past owners
  7. Pinball , good morning. I can see this bass in my collection. PM me please.

    Your Go To Bass

    Epiphone EB0 with flats and retrovibe 30k mudbucker
  9. I only know it's not a proper English longbow !
  10. Quick one taken in the dark , it arrived 'set up' for rockabilly, with an action higher than I've ever seen ( obviously needed) with a bow but no arrows !
  11. Well it came in a box over 6 foot long, it's very black and very tall. I'm not sure what I expected, but it is better. Scroll head is superb. I will begin learning to play it tomorrow.
  12. I guess that is a no then . It arrives next Tuesday.
  13. I've waited for this model to be available, I've got a thing about the scroll headstock, it now is, and I've ordered it. right or wrong ? Anyone got one ?
  14. Dry fingerboards are not only found on HB basses! recently bought a Gibson SG bass, lovely apart from the inside of the case being full of fretboard dust, fretboard almost pink from dryness.
  15. As im in my cave, building a model plane . . . . . . Radio Caroline Flashback and if 'alexa' is asked for 'bass up' you can enjoy the old Motown bass lines !
  16. Davids LPJ with the standard pickups and flat wounds sound really good. He tried mine and was impressed. Stewblack, just message me if you want to try one. . . . It's not black though.
  17. I've fitted the excellent Retrovibe 30k pickup in my EB0 so it wouldn't be a straight comparison I'm afraid, but if it makes any sense the SG feels nicer than the nice feeling EB0
  18. It's definitely got a thinner body and is lighter than my Epi EB0
  19. Black Friday deal saw me parting with my credit card for a new one. BUT omfg. Lovely brown hard case, holding a bass that was so covered in dust, a fingerboard that was so dry it was pink. Pink dust everywhere that looked like the paint had not adhered to the corners or crevices and a loose jack socket. spoke to the dealer, who said it had come direct from Gibson, and the security label was intact when it arrived so I believe them . secured a further discount on the price, dusted it off, oiled the fingerboard, tightened up the socket, and its wonderful to play . Im surprised ( despite hearing lots of nasty comments about Gibson) that they allowed this sort of lack of final inspection lack of quality.
  20. Welcome welcome. As to Church music, I'm in the process of getting the fellow Friday night players to learn 'Standing in the power of Love' an old Carl Perkins adaptation of a church tune.
  21. Welcome , your mention of 'the streak' reminds me I heard it on Radio Caroline Flashback only this weekend ! I remember 40, but it was a quarter of a century ago.
  22. Different, but medium scale is the Retrovibe LPJ style. Love mine in burst finish around £245 on eBay . Or you can go direct to website.
  23. Lemon oil seems to work nicely.
  24. Took the bird out last night, the chaps liked it, and the sounds I managed to get out of it ( some of them actually fitted in with theirs) after the playing the EB0 for 6 weeks , this one is needing a wider strap. . . . . Other than that . . . . Love it.
