As we're taking about Nathan East sixers, is this one in production yet??

 

No. I do like it though.

NO Silvia. You've missed the point. No matter how elegant, balanced and good looking a bass may be with white and gold hardware it's just wrong. FACT. No point arguing about it or having a different point of view 😉

I prefer gold on white. Warms it up. Chrome just looks cold.😉

Looks like you, me and Sylvia will be plenty warm when we get tied to a stake and burned.

The irony is that it will be by folk who think relic'd basses are classy.

This looks better though, yeah?

EXACTLY!

I have a few basses that are not beautiful, they play beautifully. Much more important, but there is no denying that gold hardware often does not look quite right..... well at least in my eyes.

If you relic’d those white and gold basses enough to remove all the finish, then you are onto a winner, or use them as the firewood for burning

Keep the pick ups tho

Oh well, we’ll all sit around a camp fire threatening to burn each other’s basses and calling them naughty names.

What a positive start to a Saturday 😂

I’m off to look into a Brown Sparkle Yamaha BB with gold hardware and pearloid tuning buttons and 14mm spacing with midi and mini USB outputs. Fan frets and 18 stings tuned in semitonal increments.

Noooooo! Don't do it Andy! There won't be enough firewood if you are going to be joining me, Sylvie and 4000 at the stake...

😁

PS tbf if folk describe that BB as brown and not orange, you won't be able to complain.

It’s alright, brown sparkle burst cannot be burned or killed by any conventional methods.

I was looking to get some feedback on how the design looked to people, without blowing my own trumpet so to speak... now I get it may look bad but I was genuinely just excited to show what I had come up with myself, not look to ‘self promote’

Apologies

Why weren’t you upfront about it then? First post didn’t make it clear you built it 😡

Ah well, he came clean in the end. Not worth getting angry over.

I’d suggest that Sims/Marcus need to sort an affiliate page up. Love a lot of the things they do as a company - and we’re a captive audience for a lot of their products.

We can be a spiky crew at times - I think we need to chill out; Marcus, have a word with Martin and set up a nice Basschat discount code - then I can find my donor BB for the poo brown sparkle bass...

It looks lumpy, out of balance and too bling for me. Oh, and too many controls. And one too many strings. Apart from that its perfect.

@Cosmo ValdemarI was never really a fan of the Dalek tone. Lacked low end and a touch boxy in the mids. 

But hey, I suspect none of our audiences would notice...

Then why not simply say "I'v designed a new bass, what do you think?" Much easier to be honest in the first place.

Think he gets that now 😂 

Four pages of how wrong he got it might be a lesson learned...

Anyhow. If you like it Mr Marcus, go fer it!

Looks like a bass with a beer gut. The way its dressed in white and gold kind of reminds me of Elvis in his final years

Now Elvis' tone (unlike the Daleks'), even in his final years, was still truly magical. R.I.P.

White and Gold should be disallowed ..... that is all.

Apart from on a classic Spector NS2 😉
