What have you got GAS for at the mo?

Recommended Posts

It would have to be a fender bass V. Completely impractical it may be for what I'm doing now.

That or (and?) A maple fretless jazz bass

GK 1001RBii I've just bought from Soundslive and delivered Monday.
Excited and looking forward to testing.

Do have slight GAS for a blue Rik oddly enough. Not sure why tho. Had a white one yrs ago and was very limited but hey ho.

The only Sandberg Bullet I've seen on BC or in 'real life' was a natural fretless Custom in PMT Leeds... really wish I'd gone for it. Dunno if it's just me but especially here they don't seem to be much favoured :unsure:

Everyone seems to love a Fender-a-like innit? :D

The main thing about the Bullets and Basics for me is the necks.just incredible! I had a California PM once, And whilst (imho) it beat the pants off any fender I've ever played, the neck just wasn't as good as a Basic (plus it was quite a lot heavier). Personally, I like something that is a bit different anyway. I've gone for an upgrade to swamp Ash for the body too, so that is even lighter and has a bit more warmth and low-mid growl. I think it's a shame that you don't see more of Sandberg's original designs about, but each to their own and I guess people just like what they like. I think all of their basses are outstanding value for money, for a hand built bass which can hold its own against anything else.

An ACG Graft Recurve 5 fretless with a figured maple top, much like [url="http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg_admin/wordpress/portfolio/2893/"]this one[/url] , minus frets.


Preferably with 3+2 headstock and East U-Retro.

Yea, the Sandberg original designs do it for me a whole lot more than their numerous fender copies. I just wish they were more widely available.

A Genz Benz amp. Those things are the absolute cherries. Curious about the Squier VMPJ too - has anybody played one? I'm also admiring Lakland and Overwater basses from afar.

Fancied a Musicman Big Al for ages but they only seem to come up, just after I've just blown my cash on something else.

Not as grand as these other choices but I've got some serious GAS for a Squier Classic P-Bass 50s in Butterscotch!

New Vintage 2-Saddle Bridge, stress the chrome and Gold Pickguard... Time will tell...

I'm very settled electric wise lately, probably because I don't actually 'need' anything, although I'd quite like a new body for my Ibby fretless as it feels very small comrade to my others basses, but the neck and tone are spot on. However, I have continual GAS for an upright which I will sate one day.

Not true. In fact they only come up after you have posted here that you've blown your cash.
So now you should know the drill: save up money like Hull, then write a post on here, and LIE THROUGH YOUR TEETH!!!!
Good luck! You'll have that bass in no time.

Even though I have a Squier Precision in this finish, I really want a Fender Precision in black/tort/rosewood. Makes no sense at all, but I just want one.

A musicman bass, whether bongo, sterling or stingray, Annoying three great examples turned up wrong side of christmas for me to put money on them.

More importantly changing/upgrading my amp to a Ashdown Spyder (dualtube/touring) 330 or 550 head, and hopefully Ashdown VS Series 1x15 cab, else a lower level ashdown cab.
