  1. Personally I'd tick the fourth box "A necessary evil" Mine is a cheap nasty one I bought many years ago for something none bass/guitar related , it has it's limitations but as I'm a tight git I'm not replacing it until it falls apart.
  2. I think I have 8? A Rick and a T Bird would round it up to ten.
  3. I was hanging some of my gear up last night when I noticed that I'd created a guitar/bass version of the flight of plaster ducks. From the left : Bitsa bass, a real "Trigger's broom" I think it's had four new necks and three new bodies...so far. Scavenger T800 , semi hollow shorty scale. Squier Affinity , the only electric guitar I've ever really bonded with.
  4. Thanks, if I risk buying a 2021 diary I'll put it in. I'll be there.
  5. I'm far too lazy to trawl through the thread , where is the venue? I'm certainly interested.
  6. Just to show that it doesn't have to be brown and slabby I'm making a guitar but with the veneer removed and the front face composed of blocks at 90 degrees to the centre line. I may do a build diary on guitarchat.
  7. The reverse V or as I like to call it "An abomination in the sight of the Lord."
  8. I've had an order from a Mr Derek Smalls for a 34' scale bass ...well that's what it said on the napkin.

      I drove past Stonehenge a few weeks back.

      It did seem rather small...

      I remember the actors' commentary track on the Tap CD ROM I had many years ago. When Tony Hendra yelled "F**k the napkin!", Harry Shearer said "That was our alternative working title for the movie..."

  9. Thanks, I'll fix it tomorrow.
  10. The other thing I've been building: https://www.scavengermusic.co.uk/
  11. "spoiler box in your signature file" - I have no idea what that actually means! I'll remedy the situation if you can explain.😕
  12. It's on it's way... I just need to print it. I'm not limiting myself to basses and I won't just be using pianos but the emphasis will be on recycled materials. Website and decal should be ready in a day or two.
  13. Ready for sea trials. I went for chrome knobs in the end. Contours (well one contour) Headstock waiting for a suitable decal ...watch this space...
  14. I was sticking to basses while I'm here. The Tele was originally going to have a bought neck but it was crap so I decided to make one for it, hence the strings but no neck. I do have a facebook page (name change and website coming soon) I'll be doing a build diary for the V there. I'm just working on templates and jigs when other projects grind to a halt. https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Musical-Instrument-Store/Dominic-Allan-Bass-Guitars-697594160378026/
