Yes, I bought a classic vibe mustang last year, but then got notification that it was going to be 6 months until delivery so I cancelled it. Would still be keen on getting one!

The surf green one looks pretty tasty. I've seen a FSR pink bronco that looks nice too. We might get some luck in the Jan sales!!

Different strokes for different folks - I love mine and find it extremely comfy to play.

My Ric isn't the most contoured and I don't find that uncomfortable, the DC doesn't look to be that thick so I'm half hoping it won't be an issue. The other half of me wants to save the money though!!

I saw. I would love the CV mustang in the bronco colour! They also do a fender mustang in shell pink too, but twice the price and with the wrong pickups.

Like all these things, trying first is the key where you can

A Spector EuroBird with a nice top would get me moist, but I'm not holding my breath.

 

Yep, this..... I wish Spector would get their finger out and make the Spectorbird shape available as a Euro option!! Also, I'd like them to make a twin J pickup version available of their Euro LX or Classic model....

Apart from these I'm always on the look out for another Hamer Impact bass 😉

I honestly don't know what the hold up can be.  Didn't Gibson lose the body shape European trademark for all their Thunder/Firebird designs (and the old pointy stuff) a year or so ago?  I like the Korean 4X model, but not enough to swing for one...god, imagine a 4X in that purple LT finish.

There was a planned Rivoli Reissue a few years ago, they did some casinos with trans shell pickguards and lighter bursts etc.

I waited, waited and waited...the guitars came and went, the basses just disappeared off the price list.

there was a photo of one on the initial press release.

It was more like - the casino was denoted as 1961 reissue.

The bass player in a mate’s band used a reissue Rivoli in the ‘90s. It sounded epic. In fact they played on the same bill as another friend’s band, the bassist of which was using my old Wal, it actually sounded a lot better than the Wal, IMO. In context, obviously. One of the things I loved about it was that if you went into something in a high register it still sounded huge, which is one of my issues with most basses. 

Having said that about my old Wal, it’s another Wal on my wish list, funds allowing, for very specific usage.

Same as 2020 and 2019, a Ken Smith Black Tiger. I have a feeling this could be a long wait though... 

Well if you will keep forking out for Overwater basses with your spare cash in the meantime...😁

Yeah,, looking at a Yamaha BB734. My 60th b-day is in 2021. Sounds like a good present. I thought about a real musicman, I have a Sterling stingray, not 100% sold on the sound. May trade in my Fender p and maybe the stingray toward the 734. (Yeah, trade in the fender. )

That does sound like a good present!

In the interests of full disclosure, I should mention that I maybe just a teeny-weeny bit biased about Yammy BBs...

Haha I wish I was.... I’ve not had a NBD in over 3 years, I wouldn’t recommend this diet but the overwater does help with the pain.

You are clearly more successful with diets than me! Although tbf I've had a much more restrained 2020 on the gear front and am only up one bass: a relatively modest used Yammy BB735A, which is a replacement for one I sold in 2019, the same colour and actually about the same age too - I guess that's about as "like for like" as it gets!

In terms of my own 2021 wish list: a multifx upgrade over my recently sold Helix is top of my list. The Boss SY-1000 is the leading contender for me, but I'm looking forward to seeing if there are any surprises crawling out of the woodwork at (virtual?) NAMM 2021. Multis are getting better all the time as both chip processing power and their UIs, both on pedal and via PC editing, continue to improve.

That is the coolest looking bass I have ever seen!

I will most likely have a clone of the Fender Blender octave fuzz build at some point in the new year, which is capable of some pretty out of control over the top fuzz tones and might be the most wonderfully abrasive and harsh fuzz ever made.

Also I am quite certain that I'll buy the 27" scale Harley Benton Baritone CLG-414BCE NT acoustic baritone guitar, which has gotten some amazingly great reviews (even the Fishman piezo/preamp system it comes with allegedly is supposed to sound great, very natural and close to the acoustic tone of the guitar), but only costs 269£/291 Euro.

Most likely already placing my order on one coming either January or February 2021.

And I've also already settled for which strings to get for it, namely a gauge .070 to .016 set of 80/20 Bronze Elixir Nanoweb acoustic baritone guitar strings.

Really looking forward to get one of these, and most likely it will replace my electric guitar as the main instrument for the songs I am working on for my alternative folk project. 

Here's how the Harley Benton acoustic baritone guitar looks :

Here's the link to it on Thomann's homepage : https://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_baritone_clg_414bce_nt.htm?ref=intl&shp=eyJjb3VudHJ5IjoiZ2IiLCJjdXJyZW5jeSI6IjQiLCJsYW5ndWFnZSI6ImVuIn0%3D

 

And here's a thorough YouTube demo/review of it :

I too recall the Rivoli being touted as a reissue a few years ago. It just never happened. I'm seeing more and more epiphone reissues being announced this month. I would be over the moon if it actually returns this time.

I have a custom build due to arrive early in '21, so I'm hoping that any decisions I make about the fine details as we go along are the right ones for me!

Otherwise, I have a backwards wishlist- I'll have the custom, I've some great multi-effects and amps, so I'm hoping to strip everything back a bit. The part I need to get right is selling as much as possible without going overboard and regretting anything. The need to fund the build mixed with the current gig situation could make for some rash decisions if I'm not careful! 😄

I need to build lots of sound absorbers, but that's on me...

So, in the spirit of the thread, I could do with fixing the pickup on my Epiphone Rivoli and revalving my Ashdown LB30. Those are a couple of nice, achievable goals.

I’ll probably do likewise in 2021. Not sure which model, but a BB is definitely coming home in some shape/form! Also, replacing the one I sold in 2019! 😒😄

I think I’m pretty much set at present, at some point I might look at getting a 5 string bass but that’s only if the band I’m currently in start doing songs where a fiver makes more sense.

Well now having evaluated the update to this is the fiver isn’t needed at present but what I will be adding is a Squier Affinity PJ in black (possibly a Seymour Duncan Quarterpounder Precision pickup for it) and a Broughton High Pass Filter pedal. 
I’m determined to only go down the 5-string route when the material I’m playing tells me that I need to.

Think I may consider another Sandberg to add to my current 3. I’m slowly Gasing for this bass Prince is playing, yet I’m clueless to what the model is.

That’s really nice, it looks like the one Ida is playing here
