    Favourite bass colour

    It's a toss up between aged cream of shell pink or me! I'm starting the think the Flea sig. Jazz is my favourite colour!
  2. Why don't Sandberg do a Shell Pink? A soft aged shell pink VM4 would be an instant buy.

      It's not shell pink, but it is pink:

      I'm sure they will build you one.

      Here's a pink Sandberg California in action....

      Ooooh, reason I said as pink wasn't on the configurator. Those pinks are a touch pink. Going to drop Sandberg an email.

    That's a great price for such a quality instrument....

    Ibanez Mezzo bass - new for 2019

    I was wearing an orange t shirt today if that counts? And it did put a wee smirk on my face, fun little bass.

    Thoughts on short scale basses?

    Yup, probably very similar to a basic SDGR/Gio neck but just shorter. PJ setup, Active EQ. Stick some (Enter Pickup of your choice) in a you're away.

    Ibanez Mezzo bass - new for 2019

    Just played one of these, what a great little bass! Maple neck was nice and smooth, not a hint of finish on it and no sharp edges. Tuners were OK, held tuning well enough after mucking about with it. Super lightweight as you would expect. Sounded decent enough through a TC head with good amount of boost from. The treble and bass controls. Since it already has active electronics it's prime for modding. Don't know if I'll be able to resist getting one of these.....

    Thoughts on short scale basses?

    Talking of shorter scale options. I just played the new Ibanez Mezzo medium scale, what a cracking wee bass! Maple. Neck felt great and with an active preamp already installed prime for modding with better pickups. At around £200 I will probably be getting one in the near future.

    New G&L Fullerton Deluxe P and J basses

    Interesting, think the MFD are just too hot? I really like my L2000 but yeah you do have to be delicate sometimes.

    If you can find one - Squier Musicmaster Vista. Punch far above their weight and are well regarded. My first bass when I was 11 and it won't be going anywhere soon.

    New G&L Fullerton Deluxe P and J basses

    As if your choices around £1000 for a P or J bass isn't hard enough - G&L have decided to wade in Finishes are a bit limited but that red P looks nice.... https://www.notreble.com/buzz/2019/02/14/gl-introduces-the-fullerton-deluxe-bass-series/

    NBD - G&L Tribute Kiloton (DV247 B-Stock)

    Great purchase! I recently tried one of these to see how it stacks up to my L2000, was really impressed too. Like you say, dead easy to play and the straightforward controls make it simple to find a usable tone quickly. Only thing I would change about the white is a different pickguard but that's being extra picky! Enjoy

    Shuker, ACG or Sei Basses for a custom build?

    Throwing another British builder in to the mix - have you checked out Alpher? The Cobia is quite jazz like and they do a mad range of finishes http://alpher.co.uk/bass-gallery/

    Zoom B1 Four

    Thomann have it as in stock in 6-7 weeks so must be new. Is it worth upgrading my B1Xon for this? Hmmm...
