  1. What a stunner! You've done well there! Regarding 4 to 5 transition it can come very quickly - try and get in the habit of playing around the 5th fret rather than using open strings. Bet you won't be able to put it down!
  2. Great, now all I want is another G&L - The Irish Red Ale Kilotons look very nice.....
  3. Another entry for the £500ish short scale, from Eastwood this time. https://www.notreble.com/buzz/2019/04/14/eastwood-guitars-now-shipping-newport-bass/
  4. Talking of Custom Shops - if you could go to Yamaha and get them to make you a BB, what specs would it have?
  5. That looks insane. I have trouble justifying a new bass these days as I have all my basses (pun intended) covered, but I could definitely make an exception for something like this!
  6. Not the first time I've heard Bass Direct getting the description wrong but very weird that something as fundamental as that wasn't picked up.
  7. Bass Direct have an interesting looking P bass. Probably won't stick around long!
  8. Talking of Musicmasters.... For your price range look out for the Squier Musicmaster Vista. Great little basses from the late 90s that punch well above their weight.
  9. That's a pretty glowing review considering the calibre of basses they have reviewed..... Wonder when they be on the streets to have a shot of?
  10. Fender Rumbles get good reviews and are really light - go all the way up to 800 watts now so plenty of choice.
  11. Welcome! If you aren't keen on the shape or colour - would it be a good idea to look at 1024/2024s? As you can see, they are going for silly cheap sometimes!
  12. Royal Mail excelling themselves this week 0 for 2 so far.....

  13. Damn....well I'll be here. Waiting.... 😅
  14. Calling shotgun if you have to sell it to get a white one! 😉
  15. Might go for seconds..... Edit: message sent...
  16. Erm.... I'm not sure I can let this one pass me by. Better be quick!
  17. Seems they still do some Fender-y stuff. With the high end stuff he does, wonder what mad stuff you could spec.
  18. Bought some White Nylon tapewounds from Isaac and he sent them quickly and arrived even quicker! Pleasure to deal with and would buy from again. Thanks!
  19. First Sputnik specd. Just €2,800.....
  20. ACCEPTING NEAREST OFFERS! I bought this watch in January this year and I really like it, but I don't love it and something else has come up which I would rather have. This watch gets great reviews and there isn't a mark on it. As you can see in the photos it looks great on any strap. This will come with the original strap and a handmade leather single pass NATO which cost me £30,full box and guarantee etc included Specs below Case: 38mm diameter - sand-blasted stainless steel - sapphire crystal on the dial side - closed back - 50m water resistant Movement: ETA 2801-2 - hand-wound - 42H power reserve - 4Hz frequency - hours, minutes, seconds Strap: Green fabric NATO strap with leather inserts - steel pin buckle - 20mm lug width Reference: H69429931 Feel free to ask any questions. Happy to post UK only.
  21. Rubbish situation all over by the looks of it. Tweets always do better with engagement so if we could all like/retweet the OPs tweet it might gain some traction
  22. The standard Cutlass is readily available online - I'm sure if you contacted MusicMan they would happily build that bass for you. Might not be cheap though!
  23. I see that Bass Direct now have Super 5s with Laurel fingerboards in.

      Good point.

      Only balls would be mine on the chopping block if I cave and buy one!

      Hahaha. Yeah, I saw the new stock yesterday. They look tasty!

      That purple Chowny SWB looks amazing...
