    Leave it out or store it?

    My Dad has about 10 guitars all in hard shell cases. I have mine easily accessible in a rack - as such I play them all over the course of a few days. I'm sure he has some that haven't seen daylight in the last 12 months. I don't see the point in having them if you can't see them and want to randomly pick them up.

    Fun little 30 bass comparison

    I see each instrument as having a certain voice. You could be Tom Jones and sing with the phrasing of Freddie Mercury, but you'll sound like Tom Jones.

    MySpace loses 50million tracks.

    I saw a rumour that it was cheaper to 'lose the data' publically, than the cost of migrating them to a new platform. As someone who works in IT, I can actually believe this. Glad I backed up my old metal band MP3s into Google Drive...

    MM 2018 Stingrays

    Sorry for reviving the thread. I tried a new Stingray 4HH today (sparkly blue one) in GuitarGuitar and it was underwhelming. Sounded nice and all that, but I really didn't feel £2200 in my hands. Setup wasn't great which is surprising but I'll blame the shop. My OLP MM22 honestly sounds just as good and was 12% of the cost.

    Verily, a Prince amongst Fakers ...

    You can see there isn't much to building a R*ck copy,, the bespoke hardware may be a factor in the cost but OY MY GOD HOW MUCH.

    Verily, a Prince amongst Fakers ...

    That's been around a few months. I'm at a loss as to why it was even built to start with.
  7. Lol why is this still here.

    New Zoom GCE-3

    Apparently it's also pretty darn cheap... https://www.thomann.de/gb/zoom_gce_3_usb_guitar_interface.htm?glp=1&gclid=CjwKCAiAqt7jBRAcEiwAof2uKwM1jj2apTXcSwnwlhGMsh4AJ9gQLqwMctTd2H7uiI8W_EpnTrGS4xoCME4QAvD_BwE

    Fender Dimension Bass Page

    I applaud Fender for trying something new, but the product entered a saturated market. It lacked any discernible USP and was really up against G&L functionality wise. Ironic.
  10. Oof, looks just like mine. Bargain here folks.

    Philip Schofield says we should use webuyanycar. I'm not sure he's doing that out of generosity.

    Basses You've Owned and Hated

    I don't think i've ever hated any of them, but of the 33 i've sold in the last 16 years (I have a spreadsheet OK), none of those were clearly what I wanted in the long term.

    NBD - Got myself a deal on a G&L...

    Wow, what a steal. My Dad once got a new USA Gretsch Firebird marked up as an Electromatic for £299 from SoundControl, he even asked them to check the price was right ! I don't think they're doing so well nowadays...

    Good evening from Solihull, West Midlands

    I went to Sharmans Cross school.

    (what, again?) Precision v Jazz

    I got both, but only ever take the Jazz.
