  1. Played some VERY nice Sandbergs today. 

     

    If my G&L doesn't up its game in the near future it could be facing the chop!

      Don't worry, they had plenty of nice 4 strings too! The Forty Eight plays dangerously nicely 😅

      Well I'm not the one to help! Vintage white aged 5er with reversed P and MM Humbcker. Super nice.

  3. Was at the Blues Kitchen in Brixton last night and there was a house band playing R&B/Soul. All good. Apart from they didn't have a bass player 😅

    Made for slightly odd listening.

      I think it was Sister Cookie? Very good but very much lacked a bass player! 

       

      It gets worse, saw Steve Winwood yesterday. He didn't have a bass player either!! I know it's rare to spot us in the wild but I didn't think we were that endangered!

  4. Did a bass cover, first time for everything. John Mayer's 'Still Feel Like Your Man' (Pino): 

     

  5. In case you were wondering......Joe Dart is definitely still the funkiest bass player on the planet right now.

      Each to their own.

      Obviously it's the solo bits that get the attention but having seen him live twice now he is SO good at holding the band together. He also looks like he is having a ridiculous amount of fun doing it.

  6. Think my Half Wound experiment is over, making my G&L sound a bit lifeless. Where to next.....Chromes? La Bella Golds? Or Newtone :scratch_one-s_head:

      Hmmm I might try a set of flats and see what I feel, especially something like the Golds/Chromes that are supposed to be quite bright.

      But it will probably end up with rounds on it again :biggrin:

      I have roundwounds on all my other basses so I feel I should have at least one with flats on. The idea of having more attack sounds what I'm looking for so it might be a set of golds. 

      Plus they would look awesome against the vintage white and maple neck on my L2000

      I have Ken Smith Slicks on just now, so I'm a bit cautious of spending money on another set of Half-wounds.....

  9. Slightly unexpected NBD tomorrow. One way to break the January blues xD

      Unfortunately not! Still having to pay for this one but I wasn't really looking for a new bass but you cannot escape the GAS

  10. Had the Ken Smith Slicks on my L2000 for a few months now and they just aren't doing it for me....Do I go full flats or go back to my comfort zone of rounds?
