  1. How long have you had it? It may just take some getting used to - I love the 50s profile! If you're certain you want to change, I would like to trade with someone who doesn't like the 60s neck.
  2. [color=#141414][font=Georgia,]Today I increased my collection from 1 to 2 guitars! The G&L did everything anyway, but I used 'alternate tunings' as a way to justify the Yamaha...[/font][/color] [color=#141414][font=Georgia,][/font][/color]

    And a badass he was too - I have a signed painting of him. Saw his final tour and although he couldn't solo very well, his vocals were spot on! (Strange) Always had a soft spot for these; I think you should keep it for £175!! That's nothing for such an unusual bass.
  4. I also felt the Rickenbacker was a bass to be played with a pick, whereas the Kubicki suited fingers, which is why I preferred it back then.
  5. I've only played the 4001 model and I loved the sound and everyone said I look cool as f**k, but it felt strange playing strings that were almost parallel to eachother. I could've gotten used to it until I played an absolute monster of a Kubicki. That said, I miss the 4001 more than the Kubicki...
  6. I thought the exact same as the OP and then I picked up one of those cheap Sue Ryder P Basses from a few years back and WOW!! I loved my high performance basses until then, from the Cort A Series to the Marleaux Consat. I don't feel a P can do 'everything', as it can lack that punch at times, but it's definitely a staple to partner with something like a Jazz (or that Marleaux Consat I mentioned ).
  7. Don't like the matt black, but I love all short-scale headless basses.
  8. Does anyone know if the necks are quartersawn? I think they both sound good, but the large pole pieces detract from the looks a bit. The P is better (of course)
  9. [quote name='JimBobTTD' timestamp='1462034362' post='3039842'] Now...a black Strat, rosewood board, chrome Floyd...yes please! [/quote] It is bizarre that you can't buy a Fender American Stratocaster w/ Floyd Rose Interested to hear about Kahlers, as that's another one that gets a bad rep...
  10. So my friend gave me his Guitar to set up, which has a Floyd Rose Bridge (German Original Model)... I've owned 4 Floyd Rose Guitars in the past, but this is the first time I've had to set one up from scratch. After reading all the hate on the forums etc, I prepared myself for the worst and after using the following methods: [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5W8GkhvZMp4"]https://www.youtube....h?v=5W8GkhvZMp4[/url] [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_nOYkRed3I"]https://www.youtube....h?v=V_nOYkRed3I[/url] [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uPvABrN7sA"]https://www.youtube....h?v=4uPvABrN7sA[/url] I was surprised to find that it set up like pretty much any other Tremolo Bridge and probably took me the same amount of time. The only inconvenience with Double Locking Tremolos is the need for Allen Keys (x2), although I have seen brackets to hold them on the back of the headstock. I've come to the conclusion that the main benefit is managing to get through a solo without the string binding at the nut. The extra tuning time cancels itself out, because you rarely have to fine tune thereafter. Can't help but wonder why they get such a bad reputation, it's a nice bit of kit! Bigsbys on the other hand...
  11. When playing alone, I find Guitar much more interesting to play than Bass, which is why I bought mine. They all say it's never too late to start learning and I would agree, because it's satisfying to noodle throughout the week. There's tonnes of resources to look to, such as Lick Library, JustinGuitar, Rockschool etc etc I would go for a Yamaha Pacifica if you're buying online, as they're very consistent with their Q/C and I've never played a bad one. You can get an Alder Body version for £165: [url="http://www.richtonemusic.co.uk/products/yamaha_pacifica_112j_electric_guitar_black.asp"]http://www.richtonem...uitar_black.asp[/url] [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_erWxfndFfc"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_erWxfndFfc[/url]
  12. I think I sold mine for £650, but that was about 5 years ago. They're excellent basses for under £1k and I only sold mine because there's no passive option.
  13. It was posted after Noon in the UK
  14. I've had one strat where I could use the bridge single coil and that was on an old G&L, so all my strats now have a humbucker there. Still the best guitar.
  15. That's a beauty - Looks white on my laptop.

    Cheers Guys - The neck pickup on the SG2000 is the biz!! It's a real shame that the bridge pickup lets the guitar down as a whole (not a drop in replacement either ).
  17. I've owned a Stingray and a Sterling and the neck profile on the Sterling was fine, but there was dead spots (5th fret D and G); I've come across this on two other 90s models. The asymmetrical neck profile on the Stingray wasn't as comfortable IMO, due to the extra width. I didn't realize you had to be Pro-EBMM to post on this thread. Either way, £2400 is extortionate.
  18. He says "I don't make Reissues"...So what are the Classics? And he only wants £2400 for it. "It plays almost like a fretless" *hits one string...Buzzzzz*
  19. Hmm...Can't get past the Marketing BS.
