  1. On the Gov website https://www.gov.uk/government/news/guitar-maker-fined-4-5m-for-illegally-preventing-price-discounts They got a discount on the fine too... They were also fined £25,000 for hiding notebooks in their East Grinstead head office according to the Guardian which may be the most Reggie Perrin Grot industries thing ever.
  2. This could fit the bill? https://eastwoodcustoms.com/projects/peter-hook-signature/
  3. Yoi could cover most of this in one hit with '1977' by the Clash and have Mr Presley thrown in gratis. "No Elvis, Beatles, or The Rolling Stones In 1977" Followed by Fernando...
  4. One of my old bands getting a track on the Classic Rock Mag cover mount CD told me it was time to move on. I prefer playing different old irrelevant stuff. Classic Rock conjures up hair and flares and Les Pauls to me.
  5. Too late now. Just live with your decision and enjoy the shiny new bass. Unless it's a Jazz that is. If so send it back and demand a refund or leave it out for the bin men.
  6. I've quit once or twice. I've always told the band in person at a rehearsal when they're all there. I always offered to stay until any gigs booked in the next couple of months were out of the way or until they found a replacement. Whichever was soonest. It went a bit wrong the first time when the band in question didn't find a replacement (and hadn't looked very hard) and booked an extra gig after the deadline expired. "But you're not really leaving are you? We haven't fallen out so we thought you were staying." So I made sure I emphasised the deadline a bit more forcibly next time.
  7. Have a good one mate. Shame I'm up in the Fens tonight. Would love to have gone.
  8. I got dragged up on stage once in a US bar a few years ago. I asked what we were playing. "Chicago Blues in G" I asked if it was different to a normal 12 bar progression. "Yeah. It's Chicago style" It wasn't. I just played with extra cheese anyway.
  9. Love it Clarky. Sounds like a souped up Graham Parker. I could imagine hearing this at the Nashville Rooms in 79 and having a ball. Good work that man 😎
  10. 90% plus of the gigs and recording I've done since being on BC have been my sunburst (Love the way the bass plays. Still hate sunburst) Precision with a black scratchplate. No point putting it in this thread. It'd be like turning up at a concours de'elegance with a white Transit.
  11. I’ve only bought one bass related thing this year. A very nice JMJ Mustang. Definitely a Best not Worst purchase. Short scales are a riot and really seem to work for me. I thought I hated relics, flats and signature basses but I’ll make an exception for this one. Reliced player and bass pictured.
  12. Hope it works out. I've had a few basses with the strap button on the heel and I've always hated the way they hang on a strap. Last one was a Warwick Starbass that I only really got rid of for that reason.
  13. They've got a Rumble at the new rehearsal room I go too. JMJ Mustang sounds great through it. Pull that trigger
  14. I'm thinking of getting my first band back together. I will need a ouija board and a parole application... Last band I didn't form myself I found through an advert in the back of Guitarist magazine. "Wanted bass player. No nutters. No stalkers. No political activists." I lied and got in.
