What have you got GAS for at the mo?

Recommended Posts

I wandered into a music shop in the Trafford Centre at the weekend (whilst visiting Manchester) with my 4 year old as they had ukuleles in the window (he's obsessed with ukes). At the back they had a black Aerodyne. I'd never seen one in the flesh before and despite not trying it GAS ensued... Does anyone have one? Any good? It looked fantastic!

Despite not having picked up a bass for best part of a year & not even really thinking of myself as a bass player anymore I have suddenly been gripped by the intense desire to own an Alembic. Sheer madness.

I want a Rickenbacker. Can't afford one, can't justify one, certainly don't need one. I just want one.

I want a new motorbike too, and there's even less chance of that happening.

I had a Warwick Streamer LX with the H/S pup configuration - and loved it - but couldn't get on with how it slapped. Or how it hung on me when standing. And I didn't like the oily finish thing or much like the colour of the fretboard and was never a fan of the spade-like headstock.

The pup placement/height was also about perfect for finger style play.

I've had any number of Fender Jazz basses ('75 reissue necks being my favourites) and loved how they slapped, but was often niggled by a constant search for a fuller. richer tone. Aesthetically they are hugely appealing to me - unless they have a rosewood board with dots, then they are one the verge of m***erdom.

An Aerodyne I had for a short time was the perfect weight, but sounded like a Jazz after someone let the tyres down.

I want a bass that marries the best of things I like from above. Light, rich in tone with H/S (or H/H and coil splits) that plays and slaps like a Jazz and looks amazing.

Maybe something like a Clover Apeiron or a Status Graphite Jazz bass - are there others I don't know of that would deliver what I need?

A five string Status, the Chris Wolstenholme model particularly appeals.

I've been pondering a 4 string version for a while. Bonus lands in a couple of weeks...

Two basses! Why not....

A Fender MIJ Mustang. More are coming to these shores later in the year. My P bass is too big and heavy for longer rehearsals, so a Mustang seems the right choice! Holger Czukay used one in Can, and he is one of the reasons I picked up bass.



And an Aria IGB-STD....




The Aria would be for a defret project. I'm looking at some online, second hand. Specifically I like the contours and the pickup arrangement. I went home recently and found my fretless Schecter, and was shocked at the quality of work I put into it. I have better tools and, probably, better patience for this sort of thing now. I tend to finish fretless necks with superglue.

Me too! And Jamerson and Joe Osborn, of course. Weird mix, admittedly. But there it is.

For the last two months I have been exclusively playing my Roscoe Century V through my Glock Blue Rock into the BF Bigtwin II and can honestly say for the first time in twoish years, I have no GAS. :unsure:

Bwa-ha-haaah!! Enjoy the feeling, it won't last. ;)

I'm pleased with my current Markbass amp, but have a sneaking suspicion something else may be getting pushed through my letterbox. And I don't mean the postman's cock, like last Thursday.
