  1. 3:17 - Pure, unadulterated, musical joy. 


  2. Considering he uses a Jazz bass 99% of the time live this is a huge scoop for MusicMan. Although this could also be a joke, you never know. Looks cool AF anyway!
  3. Paging @skelf pretty sure he is experimenting with strings on tiny basses. He uses Newtone custom gauges - pretty sure the formula is: shorter = higher gauge to ensure tension.
  4. If anyone has/spots a 5 string fretless one kicking about - I could be interested! 😬
  5. Anyone who might be looking to move on a fretless might want to take a look at the Yamaha SBV500 in the for sale section 😬

  6. Open to trades on your Fretless basses you no longer need! Let me know what you've got!
  7. Been a fair few roller-coaster rides recently on this forum. But I'm so glad they mostly have had happy endings! Congrats and hopefully you can finally enjoy it!
  8. Vintage V74 Icon Jaco-a-like or a 2nd hand Squier VM Jazz would be a great place to start I reckon. The V74 is reliced so no worries about bumps and bruises!
  9. Which member of this fine establishment made high quality leads? Or is there someone anyone would recommend?

      Unnecessary I know, but plus one for OBBM. Been buying my leads from him for years. Best quality, great value and superb customer service. What's not to like?

      What lead are you after? i make my own and have cable and connectors.

  10. Everyday I'm more and more convinced I need a Shell Pink bass in my life.... 

    1. discreet


      Shell Pink is good, nothing wrong with it. Lots of shades of white/cream out there though, have you thought about that..? ;)

      Ha, I may have one or two cream basses 😬

      That G&L is very nice... GAS!

  11. Right, September is DEFINITELY the month this is going to sell. I can feel it.
  12. And just like that: Cory Wong touring the UK next February. Good odds that Joe will be on bass if he's available. Either way it'll be a brilliant gig! https://www.corywongmusic.com/tour
  13. And if you want to try and learn some - this guy on YouTube is very good https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUd7cP9eT5SLvX39z4aGOpw It's strange how much easier it is to watch and learn from a lefty when trying to play along 😄
  14. To be fair to the guy, he's not trying to hide anything. He's put more photos up than you would get on a fully functional and intact bass!😅
  15. Safe to say, I'm addicted to anything Vulf et al. release. It's just so easy to listen to and fun.
  16. Funny this should come up - I'm literally away to put my first set of NYXLs on my G&L after reading some very positive reviews!
  17. Newly Discovered Band Of The Day - The Main Squeeze.  Fuzzy, funky goodness 🤙

  18. Looks like it. I don't have it to hand, but I'll send you some photos later on.
  19. Been in my new place for almost 2 months. FINALLY got my desk practice set up sorted, Phil Jones Bass Buddy just tucked away under the monitor. Nice.

      It's nice to get settled in.

  20. Nice! I have a Tanglewood Funkmaster which looks *very* like a Warwick Streamer. I'm sure Kiogon will be along shortly and he will hopefully be able to help you out. If not I have an EMG-BQC preamp that I don't have any use for, might involve a few extra pots though.
  21. I see you're in Central Scotland. Merchant City in Glasgow have a few basses and I think they have one of every Reverend guitar model in every colour. Flippin loads of them!
