  1. Thought it was just me but I'm glad to see that there are others that find EC bland. I have never understood the Clapton is God brigade as there are so many better guitarists in my opinion who never received the acclaim EC got. EC is a great guitarist no doubt, but the likes of Rory Gallagher, Peter Green and others far surpass him in the blues dept. But everyone has their choices and tastes.
  2. That looks exactly like my old bass, everything matches except the name Sakai which I have never heard of before but as you say there may been nothing on the headstock in the first place . If Sakai had been written on the headstock I'm sure I would have remembered . I didn't have much knowledge of basses at the time but I was certain that it was made in Japan which would explain the Yamaha thinking. I'm going with that, well done and a million thanks to all for helping 10/10. Cheers
  3. Thanks for all your help, much obliged. Will get back if I come up with any news. Cheers
  4. Cheers Andy, I recall my mate having an EKO acoustic, maybe that is causing me confusion. Will check EKO basses out, Thanks again.
  5. Thanks for that, doe's anyone know what Peter Hook's bass is? Cheers
  6. Cheers You are not alone Iv'e had many sellers remorse.
  7. Going to search some old photos and see if any other pics turn up.
  8. Thanks Douglas and all for that, I still think it was a Yamaha copy or an Ibanez could be possible. The pickguard is identical to the Peter Hook bass in pic. Just bugging me in my latter years, I remember all my basses and always thought that one was a Yamaha.

  10. Cheers for that, I'm nearly a 100% sure it's not a Jedson, pity the head stock wasn't in pic. Just annoying me in my twilight years. Thanks for input though, most welcome.
  11. Hi Going through some old slides recently and found this pic of myself many years ago (1970's roughly). Can anyone identify this bass, It's not a Gibson EB-O as I could not have afforded a Gibson at the time. I am convinced it was a Yamaha copy of an EB-O but cannot find any record of a Yamaha bass matching this. I doubt if it was an Epiphone and I can't match that pickguard shape near the volume knob anywhere on the internet. Did Yamaha make copies of Gibson basses? Any information much appreciated. Cheers and Thanks I
  12. Cheers for that, will give that a try. much obliged
  13. Hi Good thinking, Yes bass had an active circuit but I seem to remember I tried it with a passive bass also and same thing happened but will look more into that. Cheers
  14. Hi, I haven't played live for about a year and subsequently my gear has not been used. I decided to power up my GK 400 RB amp and GK 2 X 12 Neo cab the other day and I noticed I was getting distortion on the end of a sustained note. The amp and cab sound perfect till you let the note ring you get this distorted effect on the tail end of the sustain, more noticeable on lower end. I used to have a back up amp and cab that I could try either of these to determine whether it was amp or speaker problem but I got rid of them when I finished live playing. Any ideas Amp or Cab problem. Cheers and thanks. PS I have sound file that you can hear problem.
