Hi all,

Just got my new(ish) fretless from a very nice man in Italy. Not only better than I'd hoped it would be, but it seems to have found the right new home.

BTW. Didn't buy it for the colour match. That was just a happy accident.

The problem you now have is convincing Mrs @Marc Day that you "need" something else...

I'd like to hear you trying that on...

Just told her what you said. She was very amused and said 'So would I!' At least she knows I'm looking to sell the Ray right now, so my hole is not too deep yet!

My reply - to quote a warning on the front of a Derek & Clive album, is "Not to be played in the presence of miners......" ;)

I really didn't go for another black one on purpose, honest! It was Dad3353's fault for bringing it to my attention, so don't blame me. Mind you, they do look kind of mean together. Quite like that.

      So today I received this beauty from my father as an early 30th birthday present. To say I am lucky to have him as my father is an understatement!
      Check this beauty out:

    • By Frank Blank
      Yesterday morning I purchased a Taylor GS Mini-e Bass and having played it all day (because it’s more addictive than crack) I think I can categorically state that I have found my perfect bass. Obviously it wouldn’t have cut the mustard in the thrash band I used to play in but now I play in an acoustic duo and having tried a Fender Kingman, a Takamine GB30CE a Washburn AB10 and 20 and a Godin A4 I had never found a bass that suited both me and the style of music I now play. Firstly I have quite small hands and fingers so the Taylor is a revelation to play, I have always (why I started this habit I don’t know) written most of my bass lines on an old classical guitar and sometimes had problems transposing those bass lines across to a standard size bass. The Taylor is so easy to play, I find myself consistently ‘making’ some runs and complicated parts that were 50/50 on other basses. Also, despite having played bass since I was 24 (I’m now 54) I had never been fully satisfied with the amplified sound from any of the basses I’ve owned, both electric and acoustic, so having played the Taylor for a while and loving its tone unplugged I was nervous to amplify it in case I couldn’t reproduce the same delicious sound. Well I needn’t have worried, with all the controls on the amp at their middle setting the bass sounds glorious.
      So, essentially, I’m just posting this in case anyone is considering purchasing this bass. It’s a hefty chunk of change to shell out on such a unique instrument so if I can answer any questions about it or you want to try one out outside of a shop environment then let me know. I thought I’d ‘found my brand’ with the Godin A4, beautiful bass that it is, but for me, the Taylor, smaller, lighter and so glorious sounding, has trumped it. Now I’ll need to sell one or two (or maybe all) of my other basses to get another Taylor and because now they will just be gathering dust!
