  1. If only you'd been looking for one a couple of months back when I was trying to sell my Novation K-Station...
  2. From Quick reference advice for sellers and buyers: If you have a concern with the authenticity, originality, provenance or description of an item for sale, please PM an administrator with evidence to support your concerns and we will investigate. Comments about provenance made on the seller's thread will be removed by a moderator. Enough of the comments please.
  3. Damn right. My pension lump-sum is looming and a 5-string version of this would be right up my street...
  4. Not my dad, but a bandmate's... Back in the 90s I was in a pub rock/r'n'b covers band in Swindon. Very nice bunch of guys, we gigged a fair bit in the town's pubs over a couple of years. When I first met up with them to have a chat (pretty much the only audition I had ) the singer Tony mentioned in passing that his dad had played bass in the 60s. Turned out his dad was Brian Gregg from Johnny Kidd & The Pirates... that's him on "Shakin' All Over".
  5. The colour is Emerald Green, it was one of the original special order only finishes. It's actually a pretty good price for a Pro bass, they don't command the same prices as the Customs. Gives me a good idea of what mine's worth!
  6. There was some discussion about this on BassRat earlier. Opinion is split as to whether Stentor or Gewa bags taste better. Of course, some of the more hardcore types are saying that hard cases taste best and only wimps eat gigbags.
  7. OK so this is a solo but it is a ridiculously melodic one. Makes me smile every time I hear it. WARNING, fusion content.
  8. Hoochie Coochie Naan - Muddy Waters
  9. As I said in the other thread: There are many aspects that are a pain in the derrière, yes. But there were times a couple of years back when I wondered if I'd ever be able to play again. Thankfully I still can, and now I don't care how far the drive, how late the night, how tired the loadout -- I'm in two wonderful bands and loving every second of every gig, simply because I can. And for that I am grateful.
  10. Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction
  11. This for me is the crowning aspect of the build. Everything about it is awesome, but the back of the neck is just... wow. This is some of the finest inlay/marquetry work I think I've ever seen.
  12. Peter and the Test Tube Babies Question Mark and the Mysterians
  13. Yet Another Song About Weed - Professor Rex
  14. Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo - South Park cast
  15. The only cab I've ever managed to physically damage was my old Laney 4x10 Pro-Bass combo back in the 80s. And that's because it was in the boot of my Viva when I wrote it off by tailending (and completely destroying) a Datsun 120Y.
  16. Been doing some troubleshooting on my mute switch/tuner output thingy that wasn't behaving as I was hoping. Turns out there was one hair-like strand of a wire that was sticking out from a soldered joint causing an intermittent short to ground. I obviously need to brush up on my wire tinning skills. *slaps self*

  17. Errm... yes. Or no. Something. mummy, my head hurts
  18. Yes, but as we've established in the past, you don't actually like anything.
  19. Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) - David Bowie
