    Alternatives to the Squier Bass VI

    Sounds very nice but somewhat more expensive than the Squier. I can understand that the Squier isn't really perfect for proper gigging even though people have done it and are doing it. I sold mine as it wasn't getting any real use.

    Alternatives to the Squier Bass VI

    That sounds like an excellent plan ... but how long and how much ... and what colour?
  3. McCartney wanders up there on occasion.

    Those Eastwood pickups do look like soapbar P90s.

    Rock music peaked in 1971

    I have some sympathy becasue I'd like to think I rarely if ever listen to 'rock' but four of that list I would listen to thinking it not to be 'rock'. 'Rock' is pretty much a contested yet meaningless concept until someone defines or explains what they mean by 'rock'. And then one finds that the definition or explanation given includes examples which one feels have very little to do with 'rock'.

    Rock music peaked in 1971

    Overlooking 1971, some people have claimed February 3, 1959 as the turning point.

    A new bass for dub reggae

    I don't really believe in 'tonewood' but the neck pickup on my mahogany Lakland Decade is creamy and thick.
