    Returning to playing

    Haha I'm the same, if not my basses and equipment then my bicycles take up my time and money haha. Keep up the practice and with the books and I'm sure soon we'll see you excel in your playing and enjoy delving more info your theory. Fun stuff. My dad's off like a rocket, wondering if I'm playing good enough for my 15 years of play timeπŸ˜‚

    Nice introduction Gary and welcome back to the world of bass, how are you finding it with giving it a break? More passion and interest than before? Not too bad equipment as well, pretty much ready to go pro πŸ˜‰ hahaha Just.... word to the wise, steer clear from the marketplace on here. You'll end up penniless like the rest of us haha. Welcome to BassChat and I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    Hey Robbo, never too late to start my friend. I got my dad playing guitar, he's a year older than yourself but only a few years back he started and took to it like a duck to water, really enjoying it, never understood why he didn't do it sooner (perhaps not too soon or I wouldn't be here πŸ˜‚) and something that's keeping him busy and still learning things new. I mean, tell me a dad that doesn't know everything? Haha Also had a few customers in my old workplace, many many years your senior who wanted to take up instruments to help with things like arthritis, dementia and other ailments*... Personally you're never too late to start πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ» *This is what I was told by the customer and nothing Ive researched, understand or approve but I do back, as I'm sure learning something new to keep your mind young and keeping your hands busy can help backpedal certain things. That aside..... Some nice gear you've got and also welcome to the Yamaha club, we'll expect pics posted if it's a BB model Enjoy the forum and welcome to BassChat 😁
  4. Always wanted to make the "Lotto" bass in fairness, this is almost there
  5. I quite like this, if my Farida sells, I'll consider treating myself πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ» In the meantime, GLWTS
  6. @AndyTravis stick a P in the middle position and some better electronics πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

    The Yamaha BB thread (from X34/5 launch)

    I wouldn't have thought they'd make it active and nothing to gain from one hole. Perhaps a pickup selector and a V/T/Switch configuration. Who knows.... People do crazy things to these basses though πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

    NBD Ibanez Talman TBM100

    Haha I can think of a few different stores they could close although I never went to the Alt' store πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚ The Talman series don't seem bad little basses, nothing I'd drop what's in my collection for though. I hope you enjoy it

    MIJ Mustangs - was black/black/maple ever produced?

    Seen one recently but think it was exclusive to CME in that finish. I'll assume a MiM model though

    MySpace loses 50million tracks.

    I miss MySpace. I stayed on until about 2010 before I switched to Facebook πŸ™„ I bet this now marks the death of the social media site.
