  1. By someone who knows what they're doing! I'm fine tweaking, I can sort the intonation or make an adjustment, but it's such a pleasure to start from a good setup in the first place.
  2. I. Am. In. Shock. I don't know the name of their luthier but he's a sodding miracle worker - my bits-jazz is just amazing! It plays so, so nicely. The cheap Squier body is LIGHT and the neck and body combo is perfect. It has a very slight dead spot but nothing like the USA Pro I used to have. Thank you Bass Gallery! £45 well spent indeed....
  3. This one: https://thebassgallery.com/collections/bass/products/enfield-eye-ex-demo I mean, it's a beautiful piece of work. Looks and feels amazing, can't fault it and I'm sure I could play anything at all on it with those pickups, but I didn't feel like I wanted to. Mind you, I really don't like lacquered necks so maybe that put me off a bit. I don't know why...
  4. Just tried an Enfield out in the Bass Gallery earlier today. It left me cold. Oh, a superb instrument, without a doubt, but it struck me that it was very much a professional tool to get the job done, any job at all. I didn't get any kind of vibe off it so while I'm sure it was worth the £3,000 asking price I was very happy to hand it back to the nice man in the shop to hang on the wall. For me, a Dingwall has that "modern" feel and style, just as versatile but seems to have mojo.
  5. They're not bad, very nice team in there. My local dude is Graham Park, he's very good but rather pricey and too busy at the moment. I'll certainly let you know the outcome.
  6. Yeah, I'm going to take it to a luthier for a proper setup. I'm going over to The Bass Gallery on Friday.
  7. I did a very tidy job with my needle files, never went near the ones from Amazon so they're going back. However, I'm hot happy with the end results and rather than go too low I'm gonna take the bass for a setup. I've shimmed the neck and I'm convinced in more experienced hands the action can be taken lower but I'm reluctant to mess too much with the truss rod.
  8. Cheers. I'm gonna do some work on my FrankenJazz this weekend, if I end up not ruining it then I may be back in touch. Cheers!
  9. Hi. I've just looked these up and they came as either “warm and wooly” or “clean and clear” wind. Do you know which these are? Cheers!
  10. Ah... just saw this. Well, I'll give it a go and I'll be very gentle and if they don't work I'll just get a refund. That's the good thing about amazon.
  11. Right, yes. I followed the link above and got a set through amazon. I'd been looking on eBay but the amazon set seems fine and for £8 or whatever I'll stick with them. A little project for the weekend!

  13. Thanks for this, everyone - I'll see how I get on!
  14. Yeah, I think that'd work for the heavier gauge strings, but I don't want the first string rattling about. One of the needle files has a nice oval shape so it ought to make a good groove, still, it's just a cheap plastic nut so if I mess it up it won't be the end of the world.
