Re: Learning to drive manual

Try this... 1. Find a quiet flat carpark. 2. Have the car idle and in 1st gear with the clutch pedal DOWN to the floor. 3. Very slowly release the clutch (without touching the accelerator). 4. Get the car to move off without stalling. 5. Push the clutch and brake down together to stop. Figure out wh...

Usually the later of the two.

Re: Stonefield Basses from New Zealand

A few years back I built this passive fretless using a wooden bridge, piezo discs and a single humbucker. It uses the Magpi system designed by Dave Wendler in the US. His Piezo circuit is excellent and the bass turned out great. http://www.ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=16303&hilit=liq...

Re: Neck profiles...

Why are manufacturers so hesitant to include full measurements? Is it because there are too many variances depending on who made it? For example, I have two MIJ Geddy Lee Jazzes which feel similar, but different. One is slightly rounder and thinner all the way up the neck, whereas the other one is ...

Re: Stonefield Basses from New Zealand

I do like the headstock + headless bridge aspect of your basses. Have you seen Maurizio basses? http://www.mauriziouberbasses.com/uber-jay?lightbox=dataItem-ixqge9dg Many of his basses use a similar design. Makes for great balance without the jarring look of a missing headstock. BTW, are you using p...

Ugliest warwick... EVA.

Seriously, that looks like a bad, homemade hack job from the mid 80s. The gold hardware just adds to the schlock factor. How did it ever get to production?

P.s. ETS in Germany make awesome headless hardware. Surely they could have just ordered from them. :(

Re: Build 04 - Finished

That 0.120" B string is your problem. I don't use anything smaller than a 0.130" if at all possible. I've got a 0.135" on my 32" scale fretless and it's right on the limit of what works properly. I've got a 0.125" B on my 33" 6 string, but that's only because I won the ...

Re: Build 04 - Finished

Like you say, I'd suggest trying a heavier B string. I'm sort of surprised you're having a "rubbery issue" with a 30mm body. I've never had that issue even with very thin bodies. That crazy, weird, centreblock-less guitar I've just built doesn't suffer any of the issues you're talking abou...

Re: When The Love Comes Back

Weird thing happened this week. I broke a string on my P Bass (with a Jazz neck) and grabbed my Sabre off the wall while the boys kept playing. Quick tune, plugged in and finished the song with it. The weird bit is I have just not gelled with this bass for ages, either sonically or ergonomically bu...

Re: Project Spitfire - The Rosewood/Morado/Cypress 56 P Bass

SO once you start you just can't stop... Having completed the first two builds, it seemed a shame to leave the third blank on its lonesome, so a visit to Rosewood Joe for a board for a neck from his family Tea Plantation in Bali and a nose around on ebay for some extremely attractive morado for a f...

That neck is gorgeous! I'd love to build a rosewood neck. :)
