Re: Fancy Neck Woods?

The Warmoth website has very good descriptions on the tonal differences of each available neck wood.

If you like slim t...

Or you could get Aphekgreg (up at Narara) to wind one for you to your exact specs.

Re: New studio build

What is your flooring Pete ? Some newer places have the waffle pod slabs. They look like they would work well for sound isolation.

How is this GST for overseas items under 1k going to work ?

Who understands what is being imposed in 1 months time and can explain it to the rest of us ? I figure big players like Ebay will charge us and extra 10% at checkout but what happens if you buy some pickups at Bestbassgear ? Ie a small player that isn't registered for GST ? Will Auspost hold it back...

Re: Compulsive timber acquisition syndrome

You Melbournites are so lucky having David Searle to help you turn beautiful pieces of timber like this into working instruments. I see no need for a psychologist Ivan. You are asking in the wrong place for that.

Re: What bass guitar sounds DON'T you like?

I love Pino as a player but I don't dig his P bass with TI flats tone. Listening to John Mayer's Continuum right now and it seems so muddy and indistinct. IMO his sound is too clean to have no highs in his sound. A tube amp adding some harmonic richness and then maybe it would work.
