  1. Maybe not the most famous of names, but Chuck Prophet (ex-Green on Red, many very fine solo albums) has played, toured and recorded with the same MIJ Squier Telecaster since 1984. It's definitely a working instrument, but he gets a great sound from it.
  2. Presumably after having drunk the first half of the case... ๐Ÿ˜จ
  3. Twins? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ That's just not fair... ๐Ÿ˜
  4. That is lovely! I'm quite jealous. ๐Ÿ‘ I hadn't read the original post from @police squad properly and didn't realise this was a Fender Custom Shop piece. There was a self build someone did back in 2011, which was a nice effort as well.
  5. Was there not a build thread on here for this? Was a few years back... might be my memory failing, but I'm sure there was. Likewise, Herbie was/is a big influence on me. I still have a deep-seated love of LPB basses.
  6. Steven was maybe a bit obvious on the 'clank' right at the start, but one you got in to the song, it felt pretty much normal to me. I still find it strange to see them wailing away with 3 guitarists. They don't, IMO, do enough to differentiate the guitar parts & sounds between the 3 of them. If you listen to just the audio, especially live, you can't tell who is playing what.
  7. Surely some clever clogs somewhere must be able to invent black feet wire, as well? As in properly black all the way through, rather than coated. Bound to be a demand for it, I would think.
  8. Oh my! ๐Ÿ‘€ That is a seriously lovely colour combo! ๐Ÿ‘
  9. No. Not jealous at all! No, really. I'm not. Really.
  10. The RetroB shape is definitely a nod, wink and elbow towards the Fender shape. Likewise the J-Type, although I'm not sure if Alan is still doing that style. Beautiful basses, but not cheap. They come up in the For Sale forum quite regularly, although I suppose that kind of defeats the OP objective.
  11. I can't see me ever using it in a live band setting, but I do enjoy a bit of tapping when playing or composing solo pieces. Alongside chordal work, it's useful at filling out the sound. Used to be quite good at it, less so now... ๐Ÿ™„
  12. Milton's original version of Evil Woman is splendid!
  13. I love that site! Hadn't actually realised it had disappeared, as it's given me plenty of tunes to work at, over the years. It's an incredible resource.
  14. Ooh, that Overwater is very tasty! I'd even go as far as to call it lush. ๐Ÿ‘
  15. I really like the concept of the pickguard, but I'm not sure it works with the natural finish on the body. An (aged) Olympic White on the body might work well? Nice work on the neck. ๐Ÿ‘
