  1. The bottom line is if they can't provide a demonstrable linear graph to show the difference between their cables and others then they can be 'effed off without a second thought. Anything presented without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. Same goes for valves and "tonewood" (in electric instruments) - another huge scam.
  2. As long as you get a reasonably good quality cable, that'd be fine. The whole super-expensive cable thing is just a massive con, just like tone wood and valves/tube making a difference to your sound.
  3. That is so true. I walked into a studio yesterday which smelt of exactly what you mention there, coupled with damp basement smells and stale alcohol (usually from split beer from punters). That to me just conjures up images of loud music and hard work. Love it !
  4. Absolute steal for a Levinson Blade here. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304443025498?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D238393%26meid%3Dd8a036710229466a94aa5f9d904f246f%26pid%3D101195%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D294935567447%26itm%3D304443025498%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9PairwiseWebMskuAspectsV202110NoVariantSeed%26brand%3DBlade&_trksid=p2047675.c101195.m1851&amdata=cksum%3A304443025498d8a036710229466a94aa5f9d904f246f|enc%3AAQAGAAABIIIp3bTCXFAKw6S9crk9CpCrrtOgadqFiC10NVPbN0936eprYVB4SXfDa52e1mbPLMLOB%2FDYA2MKpCp44nXy9XT4cwCGeZuKUkOX9z9HdyR9gGSnJYzhLiNzK4MwBn1iXOWg0FgVvOlRLTRg6EJM7W15FO%2BRsecyjTBo6pyOpOKfIFrHO5bzo%2F3I3LKCE%2BW4HYwBitaYkuL4opY7RrwpBwmqJkuXd4T9lHc%2Fz7eacnom6MjJB8D3LPplO8iNDICG5KiZ%2BfrtTownStKpyA5LkXXNDZzPq%2BWPEs3%2BgVAe2uzXdf%2FlaYr6QHrRw5wotTDpKyXtOaw4BKAAw84QWYTFosYrEUieCFLeCNIWzjSyDpCPbmPAzrJ1HvRK730ip0Mbxg%3D%3D|ampid%3APLX_CLK|clp%3A2047675
  5. Any photos of the back and what is the weight please (of the bass LOL!).
  6. Love it mate. I bet that sounds immense.
  7. Isn't this an "Eagle" model BC Rich ? It has the same shape and identical electronics.
  8. Dude ... is that your hand in the left hand corner? Jesus! how tall are you?? !!
  9. It was on the High Road if memory serves me correctly *EDIT* .... it was 396-398 High Road, Leytonstone. I remember back in the 80s a mate of mine part exchanged an old Slingerland drum kit which was knackered and beaten for pennies for a brand new Pearl Export kit. Two weeks later I went back and they'd refurbished the Slingerland and was selling it for around a grand. I told him and he didn't believe me until he saw it for himself. I did detect a tear or two in his eyes when he saw it.
  10. Must resist .... must resist must resit...
  11. I stand bollocked. It would of course have been polyester as you say but still had a nice looking finish on the 78. As an aside, Fender still use nitro and polyurethane on some of their road worn and custom shop models.
  12. He's been smoking something illegal if he thinks he'll ever sell this for this price ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265495318684?hash=item3dd0c1109c:g:LNIAAOSwuG9hUEub
  13. I had a sunburst 76 Jazz and a sunburst 78 fretless Jazz back in the early 90s (I won't tell you how much I paid for them, you'd weep they were so cheap) and the weight difference in the two was marked. The 76 was very light and lovely to play. The 78 was a boat anchor. The difference in the finish was that on the 76 it was very road worn but the 78 was like new with no hazing or cracking in the nitro at all. It just goes to show how hit and miss the QC at Fender was back then. By the way, the darker headstock on 70s basses was down to the finish as the nitro cellulose finish would destroy the decals so they had to use another type of finish which aged differently to the rest of the wood. The decals all had serial numbers attached to them which meant they couldn't just throw them and get them re-done in a more durable material.
  14. "The Pickup pockets were carved and BURNED by hand (this took a long time and a lot of patience to get it exactly how I wanted it to look)" Jesus wept ... is this bloke serious?
  15. It's actually a thing believe it or not. Made from 1994-95 and as the seller says, it's rare. Usually active with Lace Sensor pickups.
  16. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  17. The ability to fire three rounds a minute in any weather. Oh hang on ... that's what's required to be a soldier in Wellington's army during the Peninsular War according to Major Sharpe. As you were ...
  18. Ha! I was hoping they'd be at the same price as the Marshall's (wishful thinking I know). I've got a 6505 head and a 5150 combo and they're my favourite amps too.
