  1. I've reported all his ads as scams, and his profile too. Not that I'm expecting it to achieve much.
  2. Sei Flamboyant 5 string. It was a stunning instrument -- I mean, just look at it -- but I couldn't get the setup right, so in a fit of pique I sold it. What a stupid, stupid move. Piezo bridge, Schack eq, Bart pickups (wasn't super-keen on them, but that's an easy fix), blue edge LEDs and a whole forest of stunning walnut. I should have given it to a luthier and got them to do it properly, hell I should have taken it home to Camden -- a decent setup and a set of Delanos and it would have been simply perfect. It was beautifully made, felt great to play (apart from my crap set-up job) and the sound was to die for. I often kick myself, very hard, for letting that one go. Arrrgh. Ouch (just kicked myself again).
  3. Rule 6: 6. Your Conduct. You also explicitly agree that you shall not: ( a ) provide any content or conduct yourself in any way that may be construed as; unlawful, illegal, threatening, harmful, abusive, etc In other words: play nicely. This is not open for negotiation.
  4. Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now - 3 decent musos and a whining tosser
  5. "ABBA have settled their lawsuit against the UK tribute act ABBA MANIA, who they’d initially targeted last month for trademark infringement. In a suit filed on December 3, the Swedish icons described the cover band’s behaviour as “parasitic and bad-faith”, claiming that ABBA MANIA were intentionally misleading fans into believing they’re endorsed by the real group. It was said in the lawsuit that ABBA gave ABBA MANIA an opportunity to change their name, but ABBA MANIA refused."
  6. I started to write something, but then found that everything I wanted to say had already been said..! I find this is the ideal compromise between lined and unlined:
  7. Gimme All Your Lovin - Zed Zed Pinnacle
  8. A couple. Not enough to fund any toys though.
  9. If This Is the Last Kiss (Let's Make It Last All Night) Lyrics - Meat Loaf
  10. Does enforced abstinence due to lack of available funds, thanks to car service & repairs/new specs/house maintenance/{insert next item in seemingly endless fckin list here}, actually count as proper abstinence? I'm guessing not.
  11. It's always sad** to see a band descend into such acrimony, especially when the parties at war are siblings. **Apart from Oasis, of course. That was just funny.
  12. IME their customer service seems to blow hot and cold. I've only really dealt with Mark over the phone as it's a long way to just pop in... one time I bought a Genz rackmount kit over the phone and it couldn't have gone any better; another time when I put the phone down following a 'conversation' about something (I forget what) my first thought was "well if you're going to come at me with that attitude, you can stick your fecking shop sideways and without painkillers". Is he affected by phases of the moon or something? Absolutely. Attitude or not, we need shops like BD and Bass Gear and the Gallery.
  13. I can't understand the slow movement. That was a year ago that the report was filed with Cheshire Police. I mean, surely there's a huge mass of evidence against the guy by now, you'd think it'd be a cut & dried case for the babylon. I understand that they haven't exactly got thousand of spare officers, but you'd think they might have jumped at a potential quick win.
  14. Perhaps rather than reporting fraud, we should tell the police that Mason-Smeghurst has been speeding and has a gun. They'd be instantly down on him like a ton of bricks.

    I take it that's a 'no' then...
  16. Yes, my Turquoise Tuesday fell on similarly deaf ears. Philistines, the lot of 'em.
  17. I like zombie threads. I've resurrected a couple myself in the past.
