  1. Apologies, alleged bridge issues, though more often than not when I have seen videos of people going on about "issues" with instruments, I have often found nothing wrong with them when I played them. Case in point. Epiphone EB0. I have a stock one which is perfectly fine.
  2. Was there a short scale version of the Embassy a few years ago with bridge issues ?
  3. A cranky bugger but... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVbMnJQgn9U
  4. Another faker, maybe, but another Rockinbetter? Nah. Someone posted on the FB faker group the other day about some guy in UK selling a real RIC 4003s for 1000 pounds which seemed like a really good price..
  5. Probably the coolest of all I have been looking at. They sound good too.
  6. Oh yeah, good shout, maybe keep an eye out for the JMJ used. What a set of Geezer Butlers in the PJ 😛 I'd have to throw a DC Junior Bass into the mix as well.
  7. Ok, sold my Squier Bronco, and might look at a "step up". I've been floating between 34" suggestions in other threads or staying in the short scale lane. Is the PJ Mustang worth a look? Or should I look at the Vintera with the small split pickup? I hear of folk usually switching pickups in the PJ, and occasionaly the bridge, but I'd like to do as little as possible, just play and stop tinkering!
  8. Think I am ok for now with the suggestions! Thank you guys. I am veering back to the short scale thread with a few questions...
  9. I have a template from this guy which I think I will proceed with, so that will take care of the one pickup single coil type sound A bass I had not considered but sounds good on demos is the Ibanez SR500E BM. Tune it to BEAD!! That or the Spector Performer or Legend 4 , or the Thunderbird have me intrigued for now.
  10. How is that J pickup? Looks very close to the bridge? Hard to tame? I wouldn't be too worried about the lack of a tone control....
  11. I forgot about Yamaha pj configs. The choice is overwhelming
  12. Sold off some gear over the last while. I'm not gigging at the moment, so not sure I'd justify looking for a used Ric! Sold a Rockinbetter Ric. Nice bass, has my curiosity piqued for a Ric (if I were only gigging again....) Only bass I have at the moment is an upgraded Epiphone EBO. Really like the feel of this, does what it does. On my radar: Epiphone Thunderbird bass (put off by the neck dive, and not sure if the bolt on would be too "low quality", or go for Vintage Pro. Again, neck dive, neck dive...). They sound really really cool though. Gibson DC Junior Bass (I'd keep an eye out for a used one. Sound very nice, no neck dive, decent reviews all round, and would be good for rocking out) Gibson SG Bass (based on what the Epiphone does, not sure one of these could be justified) Spector Performer 4 (passive would appeal, but again, a used Legend 4 could be good) This leads me into P or PJ territory. So so so many options at any price point. I wouldn't like anything heavy. Interested potentially in the Sire D5 or a G&L tribute P or PJ bass (weight dependant, I hear these are heavy?) Low end, a Squier Affinity PJ, stick a set of Geezer Butler's in them... Also spied a Reverend Wattplower used not too far… If I won the lotto in the morning, or got a decent gig: Ric 4003s (still with their issues though apparently!) Or all of them... 😛
