  1. A Dutch singer/songwriter/author has released a new single and she allowed me to go full Pino Palladino on it. Check it out:

    Show us your rig!

    Or, even nicer, get yourself a 1210 or 212 But that's also my personal preference for 12" drivers: Other than that: I LOVE the look of that JV. Very classic, reminds me of my old JV. Darn, I miss that bass.

    Apparently Markbass are to make bass guitars

    Yeah I know, just joking around. I know a few Italian luthiers and they are absolutely fantastic (Manne, Jacaranda...).

    They're Made In Italy. Aaahh yes. Italy. Well known for its world famous electric guitar luthiers like...ehm...

    NBD - Got myself a deal on a G&L...

    Well, the story is at an end: I drove to his house today to deliver the bass. He paid me everything I put into it and that's that. The weird thing is if something like that would happen to me, I would be overjoyed that I had the bass back that got stolen seven(!) years ago. I'd buy the finder/buyer a good bottle of wine and be super duper excited that I had it back. I would be a tiny bit sad that my old stickers were removed, but I would also be happy that the new owner refreshed the strings, gave it a good setup and some love. But there was none of that. He even seemed a bit offended that I removed his precious stickers and made him pay for the bass. He didn't seem happy at all, to be honest. Such a weird guy. He had told me that he played John Peel sessions with it, the Lowlands festival (60,000 people) and so forth and I was hoping he'd share the story of this bass with me, but it seemed he wanted me out as quick as possible. Left me with a bit of a weird feeling. Did I do the right thing? If I knew he'd react this way, would I have acted the same? Meh. Weird. I thought I'd be happy with the result, but I'm not, actually.

    Thanks guys! I am going to offer him to buy the bass from me. I've put quite some money into it (€275) and I think that's a pretty decent way of rewarding me for finding it. Legally, I'm not even obliged to give him the bass back, especially since he never filed a police report. It's legally my property.

    NBD - Got myself a deal on a G&L...

    So let's bump this topic for a surprise twist to this story. I restored it in the past week so I could put it up for sale, which I did yesterday. Within a few hours, I got a message: "I saw your ad for the G&L and I think I recognise it as the former bass from [Dutch bass player], which was stolen a few years ago. The bass has a huge sentimental value for him (if this is it). Could you please get in touch with him before you sell it?" So I got in touch with the guy and there's no doubt about it: it's his bass. The stickers check out, the damage, the story, everything. It's his. So he's getting it back from me next Wednesday, and I hope the stupid pawn shop will give me my money back, for selling a stolen bass.

    Identify this bass...

    There are certainly some similarities, but the headstock is way different...

    Wow, cool! Here's a colour photo: I'm currently googling, no results yet.

    Good one, forgot about that

    The weird thing is they originally advertised it for 220, and I got it for 200 "because it's so damaged".

    Lighting could be better, but this is the current collection after the monster deal on the G&L. Pretty decent.
