Re: Maton MGB4

I'm battling to understand the distinction here between the MGB and JB basses - they have the same pickup config, both neck-through, both sassafrass bodies. Best as I can tell, there's a slight difference in the horn/headstock carving, someone mentioned active circuitry in the MGB, and I'm guessing ...

Re: 2018 iPhone killers?

I have no idea how these compare to iphone, but my recent experience: Samsung S7 My favourite phone of the moment - it's a plain flat screen, medium sized, good camera, just very functional. I've deployed this as our current gen fleet phone at work Samsung S8/plus The good: * great camera and hardwa...

Re: Replacement shoulder straps for gig bags?

Thanks for that - 75-100 seems reasonable then (for Gigbag TM at least). Quite a lot of the stuff on ebay I'm finding is just over shoulder strap replacements which are _really_ long and I'm not sure are going to do the job...

Are the cheaper ones long enough ?
I literally have no idea what "long enough" is - do you have any you could give us a measurement for?
I'm concerned about getting them too long and having the bag slooped behind my knees

Replacement shoulder straps for gig bags?

Hi Folks, I've got a couple of old gig bags which have missing/broken shoulder straps - has anyone ever looked into replacements for them? The bags themselves are pretty rubbish so I'm not interested in spending a lot, but they do need to be secure (metal clasps). There's plenty of options on ebay, ...

Re: Build #12 - 6 string fretless (warning; crazy content)

... That doesn't really show the difference in playing position though. So here's a gif of me in all my glory. :lol: Bluesteel! https://i.imgur.com/CwFB0rc.gif You can see how further apart my arms end up. Also how much lower it sits with the neck at the same level. The end of the bolt on headstock...

Re: Build #12 - 6 string fretless (warning; crazy content)

Ps it wasn't until the last couple of pages that I realised how long it was - can you post a shot of it next to a standard bass? I'm also curious to see how it looks in the hand

Re: Build #12 - 6 string fretless (warning; crazy content)

So if your goal was to live up to the thread title, mission accomplished 😉 Seriously though, it's bananas - 6 strings and no dot helpers is a recipe for disaster in my hands, add an unfamiliar scale length on top and I'm done. In my mind, it's a great experiment on its own but the truly impressive p...

Re: Headphone amp for practice

I'd expect quite a few modern class D heads come with this feature, the TC Rh450 def does - none of those are likely to be rechargeable though. A usb interface to your computer could also work eg the Rocksmith cable, or a standalone usb powered preamp. if you have a laptop, there's your chargeable o...

Re: Health Goals for 2018

We're a quarter of the way through 2018 already - is it time for a new thread @Bassline? ...or is it a tick tock scenario - odd years everyone gets stuck in, and even years we all take a break ;)? Continued from 2015 thread. Lots of good info, links, etc worth continuing. ---------------------------...

Congrats Ivan, it's a beauty. I love the pick guard aesthetics too (I didn't see that part when I was down) 😀
