  1. Ibanez SRF700 Portamento

    [quote name='bartelby' timestamp='1509527456' post='3399581'] No love for this fantastic fretless? Please help me fund a new mixer [/quote] On the contrary, lots of love for it here. I'd buy it immediately if I didn't have two lovely fretless basses already. Somebody's gonna get a beautiful instrument. Have a bump.
  2. [quote name='eude' timestamp='1509457834' post='3399054'] This bass [size=6][b]REALLY[/b][/size] is the best bass I have ever played, never mind owned. Eude [/quote] I've heard that before! Only joking, it looks fabulous
  3. Ibanez SRF700 Portamento

    Crikey, that's a beauty.
  4. Whats the longest you've had a bass for?

    A Wal fretless since 1984
  5. Sax Solo : China In Your Hands

    There's about four notes in it. You don't have time?
  6. Bass you just couldn’t get on with?

    I generally can't get on with other bass player's basses. They're usually too big, bulky and heavy or covered in black lacquer or something.
  7. Short scale bass question

    [quote name='Marc S' timestamp='1507802386' post='3388013'] For me, swapping to & from it does cause a little issue with left hand positioning / fretting - as I can overshoot / over-stretch if I'm not very careful It shouldn't really be a problem - but I am also swapping from bass guitar to DB as well.... so maybe that's part of my problem? [/quote] This is my main problem: switching from my 30" scale to the 34" during a gig is irritating because of the adjustment required.
  8. Short scale bass question

    As others have said, they are generally floppier and hence bassier, looser, with less twang. You can compensate with heavier or high tension strings. That's what I do.
  9. Short scale is where it's at.
  10. SOLD - Marleaux Soprano

    What is the nut dimension and the string spacing?
  11. tolerable Christmas songs

    'Driving home for Christmas' is a lovely song.
  12. Rush documentary Netflix

    I don't get this band. His voice sounds like a strangled cat, they look like dorks, they write streams of hippy goblin nonsense land there's slathers of horrible, tuneless, metal guitar over everything. Mysteriously, all the commenters reckon they're musical geniuses. On the plus side they come across as nice fellas - but this rockumentary is dull as ditch water for all but die-hard fans.
