  1. [[quote name='martthebass' timestamp='1493810383' post='3290803'] Named after the 'anti satellite missile'? I always thought it stood for 'Another Strat, Another Tele'. [/quote] I only learnt that today after 7 G&Ls - Didn't think about the Cold War etc.
  2. Turns out Steve Howe played a Rickenbacker Bass on the night.
  3. I saw them live with Chris Squire at Colston Hall, Bristol - Such a wonderful night and Chris signed his 'Fish out of Water' album for me. Geddy Lee's a great choice for the HoF gig and if he used a 4001 then it would have been perfect (IMO). Formidable band.
  4. The most Traditional would be a G&L with an Empress Body - 7lbs. Happy Jack will probably know better than I, as he had some light Basses.
  5. Nice. I watched Dave La Rue play one with Joe Satriani and it sounded excellent. This Guy played one in 'Egyptian Smoke' as support: [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ7amOCI6DI"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ7amOCI6DI[/url] I like listening to Bongos, but Musicman's Electronics are too powerful for me to play personally - More of a P Bass/Double Soapbar Guy.
  6. I've had four G&L Legacys/Fullerton Signatures and I now have an Invader Superstrat - You can't go wrong! Congratulations!!

    [quote name='OliverBlackman' timestamp='1489573827' post='3257991'] What do these sound like? Are they clean or are they aggressive? [/quote] I think it's a P/J setup on that one

    Blows your mind - So many nice things to point out!! The Top and those Inlays for starters...
  9. The Old Arpege is hands down the best 'Rock' Bass
  10. Sometimes they look good in photos, but in your hands they look naff. Supposedly Clive Brown is the best in the business, but I've never seen a Clive Brown in the flesh.
  11. I've never seen a bolt on version - Is this new?
  12. Had an American Vintage Reissue when they were £1400 and the only joy I experienced was the quick resale... Go for a G&L mate and thank me later - I'm on my 7th and they're workhorses for professionals (great quality and value too). Yamaha are also worthy of your hard earned cash.
  13. I'm intrigued by these, but they're quite rare!
  14. Good on you - Used to have a Cirrus and I paid £650 for it, so I couldn't believe the quality when it arrived. I loved the tone and the looks, but I couldn't get on with the 35" scale and I do like to switch to passive for practice etc. Enjoy!
  15. This type of thing doesn't bother me, but if I stomped up £1500 and I wasn't 100% happy, I'd be sending it back.
  16. At home I like to play a Precision as it sounds like all the records I like, but a couple of Bartolini Soapbars do the trick live.
  17. Owh I genuinely think that would be the bass for me - The perfect mix of hollowbody and electric
