  1. On looks alone, I don't like the latest t-bird they have out, with the really big headstock.
  2. @BigRedX That's a good question. What makes a t-bird for me? Probably the shape, and based on previous experience of the Epis where I played gigs as a guitarist with guys who has the Epi, it sounded pretty solid live and recorded. I am not sure what model Epi they had though tbh.
  3. Epiphone bolt on t-bird worth a look at all?
  4. I thought the same thing, that they were very close to an Ibanez.

    Cort B4?

    Tyre kicking / GAS attacks, came across this. I have always heard good things in general about Cort basses and guitars. This has good hardware, and is a good price. Too good to be true? I would imagine the resale value would be lower than the big brand names, and it's not the "coolest" looking bass in the world, but looks like it would function pretty well.
  6. I saw those on eBay but €€€€
  7. No I had not considered one but would have no problem trying one.
  8. Hoping for anything new next year? I’m hoping that Epiphone might reissue the Rivoli or Grabber/Ripper or LP Junior Bass...
  9. I may hold out for the kickass based on your previous post!
  10. @soldersqueeze yeah, was going to go for 17mm as it seems to be based on the original. Whatever I go for doesn't necessarily have to look vintage either, as long as it's better than stock. For whatever reason, I am slow to spend the new price on a hipshot (as the bass itself was cheap)! HS Kickass is a lot cheaper than the vintage, 17.5mm might work too for spacing? This is my second bronco, and seems to feel better in general than the previous one I had.
  11. Could anyone identify the bridges on these modded Broncos? While the hipshot 17mm seems to be the suggested bridge, just wondering what the ones in the pics above are. I had a look around last night but have yet to find another 17mm 4 string bass bridge other than the hipshot.
  12. So maybe graphite might be a better option?
  13. I'll keep the brass nuts to the cold weather and myself then. Bone nut it is!
  14. I have a squier bronco bass, and will hopefully get my hands on an Epi EB0 over the next few months as well. I have all the obvious mods in mind, pickup, bridge, wiring etc, but also looking at whether it's worth upgrading the nuts? I've seen a few modded Epis for sale with brass or aluminium nuts and you can buy ready made Epi ones online. In any case, worth upgrading the nuts on these two models? I assume stock nuts are plastic, and not sure if it would make a whole lot of difference either way. I had a Dano guitar with an aluminium (I think) nut, and I liked it. Pretty resonant guitar for a "cheap" guitar.
  15. Anyone ever tried the Godin Dorchester short scale? A hollow or semi hollow I think. I had an Aria Hi Flyer mosrite copy, that I stupidly sold, and the pickups were P90 style. Possibly big single coils, and sounded pretty good. Dorchester looks to be a similar type guitar, just wondering if anyone ever got their hands on one? Pricey things though.
