Total Watts

  1. If you can find one cheap enough, they are great fun. One day I'll finish it by putting that P90 Serek style humbucker in it. For now. It's just good fun.
  2. I see you've bought that BB which is a great call. The SBV used to belong to me and its a super cool bass, also already neatly routed for a battery compartment and plenty space for a preamp. If I hadn't just bought a Sire and a new watch I'd probably buy it back 😂
  3. Tomorrow is finally NBD! Been about 2 months since I actually bought the bass 😅

  4. Depends on what he plans to use it for. If it's for recording, find a good passive P Bass, an older Yamaha BB would be great. If he wants something a bit more fancy then Sire will do it, they even have short scale models now for which might help the transition
  5. Is it actually pink? Or just a really weird picture of an orange one?
  6. A Super Light VM5 with light relic is probably the dream for me...
  7. Anyone intrigued by the Bantam 5? Interesting that it's 32" not a full on short scale...
  8. I'm normally a fan of fancy finishes but that looks a bit lost, like they couldn't decide whether to go quilted or burl 😅 of course others obviously love it and more power to ya!
  9. It's always tempting to want to upgrade something as it is perceived as "cheap" But you get so much for your money these days that sometimes upgrades aren't necessary at all!
  10. Depends if you want a modern or vintage tone? Some UK based guys do custom pickups at very reasonable prices like Catwhisker or the Creamery. Also might be worth playing stock for a while and seeing what it does/doesn't do for you.
  11. Just spotted this on No Treble - a Carbon Fiber necked bass for under £700... https://klosguitars.com/products/electric-bass-preorder However, they are also taking preorder for nearly every other stringed instrument under the sun so this could be a case of spreading themselves too thin. Always cool to see new things though.
  12. I totally get what you mean after having a bass VI, but part of the tone and charm of the VI is from the thinner strings and pickups in combination, which won't be the same on a 4 string version
  13. I looked into these a while back as I love Sandbergs and they are definitely aiming for that market with these. The consensus was: -Good quality fit and finish -Tend to be heavy -Preamp is a bit naff
  14. Oh exciting, I was very close and the options look extensive and they are willing to be "flexible" on shipping and import.... Look forward to hearing about yours!
  15. I know this isn't strictly a BB, but my god, this will look amazing. (These are the guys who do Buzz guitars and basses)
