  1. If the body size is the same then each bass photo is taken with a different 'zoom' ratio anyway, accounting pretty much for the 12th fret misalignment. Actual measurements from the bridge would have been more useful although less 'pictorial' methinks.
  2. That makes sense thank you. P bass aside I tend raise the mids. I was struggling with that preference and my love of P bass tone so now all is well Ears eh!
  3. The conventional P bass tone is, to my ears mid scooped. A good convention P (or P?/J solo'd on the P of course) bass has a unique sound and one that I love. Earthy, woody and sort of hollowed out. It makes me feel good. I'll play the bass and smile. The only P I own at present is my Yamaha BBPH with the reverse P. The difference isn't subtle. More balanced mids and a different beast entirely. Clarity, sustain and bite are omnipresent. It isn't really a P bass at all. Given modern electronics and cut and boost EQs a lot can be achieved but the instruments core tone is still important methinks. I have a P bass 'in the wings ;)' Peter
  4. Yep I missed your post only seeing DannyBuoys where he asks if there's any other than Audere.
  5. From memory John East pre-amps have an 'active' style blend. Quote: Totally independent active and passive signal paths guarantee completely smooth blend when set to active.
  6. In my defence Dunlops are pretty bright for flats but perhaps not quite bright enough.
  7. Enjoy, hopefully. I love mine. Going to switch back to nickel rounds from Dunlop flats though. What was I thinking!
  8. Absolutely. I sold my 2024 to Chris (Beedster) quite some time ago now. The switch was a little bit hit and miss, something I put down to dirty contacts from lack of use. Something that was resolved by flicking it a few times. It turns out it was defective and Promenade Music sorted it FOC. Not up to the high standard of the bass otherwise methinks.
  9. Hmmm, is that THE EBMM peach?
  10. We learn all the time. I hadn't realised that the original Aria SB1000 was so highly rated. Aria have made some great instruments.
  11. When I last spoke to John (quite recently) he was trying to source re-chargeable batteries for the P Retro so they aren't not made, just not available at the moment.
  12. The beauty of the East Uni Pre is that a passive tone can be included giving all the benefits of active/passive with a decent blend.
  13. A short 30" scale bass that is near new in condition and has been modified tastefully in several respects. Modifications: Schaller Bridge Schaller Tuners A Kiogan wiring loom converting VT and a 3 way pickup selector switch to a VVT configuration with matching Gretsch knobs A thumb rest added between the pickups Gretsch style strap locks This bass plays extremely well and the finish and fretwork are excellent. I do have the original tuners and I'm fairly certain that I can lay my hands on the original bridge too. Possibly the original wiring also. Bathroom scale estimate 8 lbs Strung with new Dunlop flats. I also have the original strings and some black D'Addario tape wounds that I can include. Can be posted at cost but I may remove the neck to do so.
  14. Just imagine the fun if there was more than one pickup The rear of the neck is stunning.
