  1. Macca, working at 80, something many will experience inThe near future…..😇 Personally thought the band and performance was excellent. No miming, odd wee wobble, but just magical. Noel Gallagher said something profound earlier along the likes of, “I’m just blown away seeing kids sing and rock out to songs I wrote years before they were born. Try being McCartney…..
  2. Correct. But ...silicone isn't.
  3. I think Ricky Gervais hinted at that recently. Asked why he tended to employ the same actors, "Cos I like them and they are fun to work with." He mentioned one big name who was a nightmare and swore never to do it again.
  4. Jings J! You did the right thing - up front and honest. I sacked my self from a wedding/covers band once because they treated rehearsal as a 'learning' space. I had learned about 10 songs during the week as requested, they popped up on a Sunday giving it, "What are the chords to...., does anyone have a recording of it etc" After 6 weeks the band had learned 2 songs. At that rate, it would be about 5 years till we'd learned the set.
  5. Molecular gold - 🙁 198 as an isotope - 2 days later it would decay to mercury 🙁 Silicone can't be atomically pure as it isn't an element. 🙁 Virgins - it's Basschat!😇 This place has gone to the scientific dogs!😄 (ps - get your drift. Once had a pal who AB'd his set up to show us all the difference in gold plated leads v Copper....not one person could hear the difference, meanwhile, he was pulling mega orgasm faces at every click!)
  6. I am jealous when I watch a player with a 'cheap' bass. Is it because of the bass? No - it is usually because they are a better player than me!😇
  7. From March but wowtastic! Especially love the first bass! NS-1 - Metallic Gold! Apology if this has been posted before...
  8. Wonder if they have learned - sent me a one side spec sheet to fill. Pics had to be sent too and a serial number. In the end, £300 for a neck when I can buy a second hand one for much the same price meant it wasn't really feasible.
  9. Oh well.... "Dear XXXXXXX, the cost for the neck is 345,00 Euro, plus the Just a Nut III Euro 17,50 and the shipping cost .. maybe 40 to 45 Euro.. If you like to Order it, we need from your side a picture from the cutted headstock.. after we would release the invoice to you and you have to pay it and if we received the payment from your side, with in 1 or 2 weeks we would send the New Neck to you.. I hope I was able to assist you.. with best regards Framus & Warwick GmbH & Co Music Equipment KG H.P.Wilfer 07.06.2022, 13:36 " Very rapid and professional response from Warwick. I provided all the required detail but £390 to replace the neck is too steep. Yikes!
  10. I was (ir)rationally drawn to this Molloon Bass.... https://youtu.be/yiPQzm9tXEk
  11. Yes - this looks like the only route. Seems mental to have a bolt on neck instrument and not have spare bolt one necks! I wonder if a Fender neck will fit?
  12. Absolute beauty! I went to GG to trade in some stuff for material...one was my Spector Legend. Wee guy played it thru a DarkGlass head and speaker. And played a Warwick....and I played a Geddy Lee, a Player Jazz and a Player Precision. I changed my mind. God know what the neck thru with Aquilars sound like!
  13. Truss rod totally gubbed. Any thoughts? Warwick pretty poor, tried Guitar Guitar who were good. £100 to fit new truss rod....£30 set up...BUT NO GUARANTEE IT WOULD WORK! Or - anyone have an old Streamer Std neck they were thinking of burning for t' jubilee? Thanks in advance.
  14. A thing of great beauty. GLWTS
  15. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  16. ...a rather special bass while recording with Pete Townsend.
  17. Just found this thread. Intrigued and totally. Sold on seeing the finished article…
  18. When I bought my first bass, it was to be in a punk band. The retailer then said, “And one of these Sir?” Holding up a BassBalls effects pedal. “It’ll help you sound like the Johnson Brothers.”
