  1. Have some gas for these G&L basses , the jazz bass or p bass style...
  2. @Killed_by_Death maybe he things owning all those basses will make him play better or because he owns them, he's in some top tier of "players" ...?
  3. Anyone ever try those bolt on conversion necks? Pricey things to experiment with I suppose...
  4. Now in 2 or 3 minds between this, the dc junior tribute, or holding out for a medium scale aluminium neck build!!!! Gah!!!
  5. @Killed_by_Death is he any good ? can he play any of them ?
  6. @bassmachine2112ah so depending on the model, the woods differ?
  7. @BigRedX I need to think about 30 v 34 inch scale... not sure yet
  8. @BigRedX Thanks for feedback. Curious about weight, neck dive. I am tempted to plump for a Tides, similar to the original post, a bit of an expense when I'm not gigging but ready for when I am able to gig (is my excuse). From just videos I've seen, I really like the bell like crisp sound they can produce in general. Not a huge fan of the trebly pick distorted sound, which I suppose they are famous for though I would mainly be a pick player for anything remotely heavier or rockier...
  9. @BigRedX good points! That opens up the likes of Esp Ltd, Schecter if memory serves.
  10. ah good to know. So the non bolt on active ones are the ones to watch (at a cheaper price!)? Bridge on new Vintage pro looks a lot better though.
  11. Does this look ok? Battery compartment seems to be not there v the sunburst ones or natural finish ones, of which there are several much cheaper than this on the same site. Can't justify another purchase right now, but way cheaper than Reverb. https://es.wallapop.com/item/thunderbird-classic-iv-pro-615541737
  12. No way I'd pay that for any guitar.
  13. That pic is by Tttides guitars in Europe. Seems to a custom build and a nod to an EGC bass.
  14. Probably considered a fad by some, but am considering, crazily so maybe, something like this, but not with an aluminium body. Comes in a 30" or 34" scale. 30" would be fantastic I think. No love for aluminium necks on here I would think? Heresy!?. There are vids of P basses online with aluminium neck conversions and they sound really crisp and clear. I guess with no truss rod, you never have to worry about necks warping and so on. I have an alu neck guitar on the way next year.
  15. Are the bolt on ones (new or old) considered pretty shi*ty? The demos of the Vintage pro sound really good. Nice n punchy. Same with the older active 1. I've spotted a good few of the non bolt on active Epi for sale in Spain, but am wary of buying online these days. They look like darn long instruments too!
  16. @andruca It sounds great! Roundwounds or flatwounds? I have one of these waiting for me if I can make it back to Ireland soon. I am in Granada. My nephew assured me it played well. I got it used with flatwounds, and was thinking of changing the stock pickup etc for something better....who knows...
  17. I spied the Danelectro 59dc short scale. Anyone got their hands on one yet? The long scale, from the vids I've seen sounds pretty nice and looks pretty unique (I suppose they are like marmite), but what puts me off from the comments I have seen is the neck dive, bad tuners, cheap plastic volume and tone knobs. Short scale might at least address the neck dive! The new squier jag with the humbucker only looks like it could be good as a modding platform.
  18. Thanks for the suggestions. I like the cut of that markbass combo in previous post.
  19. Budget. ooo, not too sure, but wouldn't need to spend a whole lot. I am thinking of buying used, might offer good value, around £400 roughly? or €400 where I am! I would like to play alt rock covers, or heavy blues, that kind of stuff. But I did play trad before, so would be interested in that scene too. Anything really! It doesn't have to be lightweight really, but I think the days of lugging heavy amps are over with what's available these days no?
