  1. Series 2 , state it on the grill . See below , my old cabs . Series 1 , just has the badge , whilst Series 2 have the writing under the name
  2. Yep - once seen on Jack Bruce's wall . Ebay ain't half full of chancers
  3. I agree . Hands on the best Bass outlet I've ever been in . I only went twice - 1st time to try out gear , and 2nd time a decade later (2001 I reckon) , to buy a rig . Can still picture it in my mind
  4. Bugger - was looking for one of these , and just ordered a new one from Thomann yesterday
  5. E sharp

    Show us your rig!

    How are you getting on with that Stingray Classic? Also what's the bridge spacing on them - 18mm?
  6. I heard this years ago on the radio . Jeremy Vine was on , and it just came on (probably around 10 yrs ago now - maybe more) ; and it just mesmerised me - that bass line . Went out and bought the album (this was pre download) , and I've only ever played that song off it . In a way it reminds me of The Waterfalls bassline - track by TLC , I think - another laid back masterpiece .
  7. My kids bought me this T shirt years ago - I've even worn it at gigs
  8. Top work Dood . Also saved him the indignity of having to join the competition - he he
  9. Not great pictures , but it's sort of blue/green - difficult colour to pin down really . Status Jazz
  10. I can't give you a schematic , but I will say this though . I'm a real Eden fan , but this sort of thing is why Eden has such a bad name . What sort of company doesn't have a schematic , for what was one of their best selling amps? Beggars belief really . On a lighter note - join up on Talkbass , and I'm certain that there'll be someone over there who can help you out - they have a massive user base
  11. The trouble is , is that all of the double Stingray pickup'd basses , all have the rear pickup way too far back - so not getting that 'Stingray sweetspot' . The only mainstream maker that I've seen 'dong it right' (subjective, I know) , is Warwick, with the Doublebuck
  12. As has been said before - that's just lazy sound men (or more kindly , sound men up against it with time / turnarounds etc) . Never the same argument with a Guitarist ; and most Bassists look after their gear far better than Guitarists do - IMO . So why not the same logic with them . 9/10 , you're left with a lifeless plod noise
  13. You're really not doing my gas any good at all with a post like this . I keep thinking that maybe the cost of a build is too much , and could buy two other good basses 2nd hand ; but the lure of these basses is becoming too great . My main bass has always been a hybrid Stingray , with a Modulus Quantum neck ; so know exactly what you mean by even tempered response . I've been waiting for your update on this mate - gonna have to get my finger out and sell some unused gear
  14. Going on holiday tomorrow - doubt this'll be still here when I get back . Ho hum
  15. Really nice trio of Bogarts there . I actually quite like those splattered paint finishes
  16. You're just too greedy with all of the ones you've got - he he Any pictures of them, by any chance?
  17. Yep . I ummed and ahhed on this one each time it's been up for sale , but going to go the headless 5 Bogart route . Been in touch with Stefan albeit last year - just got to sell some stuff first . Never played one , so taking a leap, but almost can't wait to shift my stuff to get one made . Glad you like it mate , as I don't know anyone who has one who doesn't love it to bits
  18. Summer Breeze , then this one
  19. Exile on Main St . Was a massive Stones fan when I was younger - got into them around '83 when I was 14 , and it pretty much started me playing music . I just think it's a rambling mess - 2 or 3 songs aside . I actually love their supposedly weaker albums - Goats Head Soup , Black and Blue , and Undercover . I'm the same up to a point with Jaco . Got his solo album years ago , and just can't listen to it - but I LOVE the Joni album Shadows and Light that he's on - beautiful playing
  20. They should send you a link to your E Mail , so you can sing up It is however , one of the most awkward things that I've had to set up . I fix Broadband lines for a living , yet I found it really frustrating to navigate - might have been me though
  21. Bought a Tech21 pedal from Theo . Great communication , and a straightforward no nonsense deal .
