  1. Gorgeous bass,congratulations matey. I too recently got a Rick from Karl & absolutely love it to bits. I really can't believe it's taken me 40 years of playing to discover that I am a Rick guy.
  2. That's beautiful,very good job
  3. I genuinely had tears in my eyes when an American friend shared the news on Facebook last night. We've lost one of the world's best musicians,I am gutted to say the least. R.I.P. Neil Peart

    Geddy Lee pedal

    I've been using one for a while now & am really liking it. It is actually very versatile & does way more than the Geddy Lee thing. I use mine to really fatten up my tone & add a little drive,this is now my to go "clean" tone. Over all I'm very pleased with this pedal.
  5. Lol nasty bass face at last night's gig in Gibson's, York.
  6. The pickup surround is from Rickysounds,very expensive for what it is but worth it I think,it finishes it off nicely. Lol no I have never polished it,it's definitely a matt finish,just the photo makes it look that way.
  7. This is my first ever Rickenbacker & I can't get over how much better it is than any of the many Fenders I've owned over the last four decades. My P bass is now just a backup bass.
  8. Good choice sir ! I've had mine 2 weeks tomorrow & absolutely love it to bits,I can't believe what I've been missing these last 40 years.
  9. I was just about to recommend pressurewound strings,I have them on both of my basses & couldn't be happier with them.
  10. Just done my first gig with my Rickenbacker on Saturday night & am exceedingly happy with it,my P bass is now relegated to backup duties. The Rick is so much easier to play & really fills out the band's low end with masses of punch,the whole band mentioned it. I even had a couple of punters mention how good it sounds & also how cool it looked too.
  11. I've just swapped my jazz bass for a 4003SW & couldn't be happier. It doesn't feel cheaply made to me in fact quite to opposite,I'm really liking it so far. As for the bridge,yes it's a shyte design
  12. I love the pickup in mine & have no plans to change it as it sounds really good,Fender claim to have revoiced the pickups in the vintera's,I think they actually have. I was never impressed with the early MIM Fender pickups at all,the newer ones are much better. I had an MIM 50's P a while ago & don't remember that sounding as good. As far as build quality on my bass I had a couple of minor issues I had to sort but the construction,including fret work is very good indeed & it is fairly lightweight too.
  13. Typical Fender quality control I reckon 😁 Mine is actually a P bass although I fitted a kiogon loom which massively improved it.
