  2. It's not a competition of course but who comes out on top?
  3. Didn't Bruce play mostly with index finger only?
  4. I don't much care. Both sound fine to me. And I have never thought 'I wish I had more sustain'.
  5. I was in a band with a drummer and two percussionists. Does that count? It did sound massive.
  6. I have GHS Precision Flats on my Fender Mustang which I'm very happy with and used to have them on my now sold Lakland Decade. And, perhaps contrary to KiOgon above, I have preferred them on a Fender Jazz to a Fender Precision. As usual, you'll have to try them to decide for yourself.

  11. Yep, it once cost me £70 excess, flying back from Istanbul.
  12. Just get a set of luggage scales ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l2632.R2.TR12.TRC2.A0.H1.TRS0&_nkw=luggage+scales&_sacat=157967 You can also weigh your luggage. If we are ever allowed to go anywhere ever again.
