  1. I snapped the E on a set of 760FMs on Saturday. I've never snapped an E with these strings before. Only a couple of As Not bad considering I've been using them for 10 years+... But considering I play fingerstyle and that's a 109 string, maybe not. Lol. anyway I digress... Last time I restrung my Jazz I put a set of LTFs on. I like 'em. Am thinking of putting a set on my P. Hopefully the lower tension will mean my brutish hands and tendency to play them hard during gigs won't snap them. Has anyone strung them through body? I can't remember if I used to string through 760FMs before they made specific through body ones.
  2. Great cab though. I used to have one. I swapped it for a Compact that is now my house cab and I use a Big Twin out and about. I missed my Big One too much
  3. I didn't play a P for about the first 20 years of bass playing. I played a Marlin Jazz (that was nothing like a jazz in terms of dimensions) and then an Epiphone Power bass like this one... But with Jazz pickups. Then in about 2010 I bought a Mex P/J and now I play a US Standard P although I do have a couple of other basses knocking around for fun, like a Bass VI and a fretless cowpoke. Once I got hooked on a P, that was it. I can't imagine playing anything else live.
  4. Yeah, I have a B50R. Have had it for donkeys. I really don't need it, but I couldn't bear to sell it I have at times taken the amp out and used it as a pre amp for a big rig. It's great. Used to use a B100R at a studio too, that was nice too. I really need to get around to fixing the light on it.

  8. Super Twin. Super comms. Super packing. Super man.
  9. Clarkson should be fired at the sun. I’d pay for that. It would make great TV
  10. I have the earlier Precision (I think it's a 2007), I recently put the CS 63 pickup in it. It's a fantastic thing.
  11. Yep, it's a Fender Noiseless Jazz pickup. These came with US pickups as standard. I have a passive one that came with a normal US single coil. They're great basses. They're the missing link between the California and the original Roadworn series. Though these are MIM not US, made from the same parts, but these were mostly active. Steal at that price. I paid similar for mine 15 years ago.
  12. John is a top fella. A real pleasure to deal with.
