  1. Hallo. A friend of mine gave me for a gist an old hofner 185 artist bass. Does anyone knows which truss rod wrench I have to bought and how can i adjustment this. It is very difficult to put something in the truss rod hole.
    Any opinions?

  2. Hello.I am a happy owner of an aria pro II sb black n gold II bass guitar. I would like to ask how can I check if the pickups are in best working order. Is there any simple way to check them.Thanks a lot.

  3. Thanks for your answer. It is in very bad condition. When I removed the frets the rosewood fingerboard starts to "peel". I believe that I have to scraped the fretboard too much for better result. The think is that I don't want to spent much money for this project. I don't know if it is worth it.

  4. [color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]Hallo to all and happy new year to everyone.[/font][/color]
    [color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]I found a matsumoku factory bass yesterday for about 20$.....It is a Westone Thunder 1a. I believe it is from 1982. It is not in very good condition but I would like to fix it. The bigger problem is the fretboard that is in poor condition. I decided to fix it and to convert it into fretless cause i don't have a fretless bass. Do you know where I can find a rosewood fretless fretboard to fix it?[/font][/color]
    [color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]I have some other issues such as pickup covers, some screws etc. But there is no problem to fix them.[/font][/color]

  5. Thanks for your asnwers. The truss ros is in working condition.I mean that fix the relief. So I don't know what is the probem.If it was in my electric bass i think that the only think i have to do is to lower the saddles, but in the semi acoustic bass if i set lower the saddle then the strings "eat" the bridge so maybe with a bridge shaving i will fix it.I will try.
    I am very happy with this bass but i think that takamine has to fix some problems.
    The other problem that i ave is that my preamp box has 2 clips .The clips are plastic and they are broken.Now i can't play it through an amp. I contact 2-3 times with takamine and no answer yet.The preamp model (tk4n or tk4nt) is a discontinued model so it is very difficult finding some parts.
    Thanks again.

  6. Hallo to all and sorry for my English.I have a takamine eg 512c bass.the problem is that the auction is too high.I adjust the truss rod but nothing .the bridge is low and I can adjust it more lower cause the strings touch in the other piece of bridge (the wooden one that is on the bass ). I hope to understand my problem

  8. Ghost_bass i have some months ( i dont remember exactly) but I haven't play with them a lot. In the past I used the same strings (rotosound rs 66 ld-45/105) for a while and with a lot of playing and no problem.

  9. [size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]I try different cable but nothing changed. As i said i already post it to alembic forum and some people told me that maybe it is the output jack that having a problem. I can't play it trough another head now.[/font][/size]
    [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][size=1] I also play with an aria pro II sb black n gold II. The first thinking is that i stack in my ears the mid/tremble sound of the aria pro and now the europa sounds very bass tone to me.But i don't believe is this the reason of the sound problem cause It is so "monotone"..[/size][/font][/color]

  10. [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][size=1]Hallo to everyone. I have an 1991 alemnbic Europa bass 4 string. Suddenly I noticed that the sound is different. I changed the batteries but nothing changed. I run it through an ampeg svt 4 pro and svt 410he. I have the same settings like before. I think that I can't hear the punch and the MIDs that I hear in the past.did anyone have the same problem in the past?[/size][/font][/color]
    [color=#000000][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][size=1]I post the same to alembic club[/size][/font][/color]

I compare it with my alembic Europa (active electronics) and with my ibanez st 824/now sold/ and it is much lower than them. The sound is aewsome.I like it very [/font][/color][color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,]much.it[/font][/color][color=#141414][font=verdana, geneva, lucida,] has very good mids. I believe that with this bng and my alembic I have everything that someone asks from a bass.[/font][/color]
