Re: Cole Clark Bass

Where are they being sold here? Well I got my information from KC's Rock Shop in Boronia, Victoria. They are a Cole Clark retailer as well. I wouldnt be surprised if the BassCentre in Melb stocks them given their daughter shop (accousticcentre) also sells Cole Clark accoustic guitars, but that is p...

Re: Cole Clark Bass

Any word on the price point? North of $2500, maybe south of $3000. I had a chat to a local musci shop near me that stocks Cole Cark guitars. When I enquired about the new basses, they indicated they expect to retail them somewhere in the high $2k to low $3k region. As for availability, they said th...

Same song two very different bass lines/solos

Hi all, seem to be in a bit of a Lee Ritenour phase at the moment. :) Have come across a few versions of one of his compositions called Rio Funk. Not a huge funk fan myself, however these two really impressed me, especially the different bass lines each bassist brought to the song, not to mention Le...

Re: Lee Ritenour and Tom Kennedy

I went to this gig on Saturday night and was also blown away by the performance and the venue! Which set, the 8:00pm or the 10:00pm set? I was at the 8:00pm set. Also had dinner there as well. Really nice food, tad pricy though. Ended up buying his CD, and got him to sign it. Was nice to see him ma...

Lee Ritenour and Tom Kennedy

Just saw Lee Ritenour as Birds Basement in Melb. The bassist in the line-up was Tom Kennedy, and boy was this guy good. Did a mind blowing upright bass solo, was just amazing, and was equally as good on his 6str electric, but his upright playing will stick in my mind for ages to come. As for Lee's p...

Cole Clark Bass

Hi all, not sure how well known this is, but I came across this bit of info on their website. They are building a electric bass which they hope to have released sometime in 2016. They have built some prototypes that they have taken to NAMM. Here's what they had said to me in an e-mail, reprinted wit...

Re: Late 1970s fretted JB4 at eastgate music

Yes it does look nice, but I just realised this is a re-fretted fretless. Arrgh, if only it was left fretless I may have been interested, don't have a fretless original in my arsenal. Would be interesting to compare it to the MGB4 fretless I have which is slightly smaller than my 80s fretted JB4. St...

Late 1970s fretted JB4 at eastgate music

Hi all, hope this post is not against the forum rules. I am posting this because there still seems to be interest in these bases on these forums. Came across this on Eastgate's website, a late 1970's JB4, or so they say. It's a tad too steep for my wallet, plus I already have one, plus a few of the ...

Re: A few questions

Thanks for all the replies folks. Keeping the strings at tension does sit better with me, so that's what I will do.

A few questions

Hi all, Just a few things, what are peoples view on reducing the string tension on basses that may not get much use for a extended period of time, say 1yr or more? Removing batteries from active basses is obvious, but I have read varying opinions on whether it good/bad on reducing the tension on the...

Re: Help me Brains trust (Maton JB4 content)

GrouiseGuitars had a Barry Sullivan bass once. Was very tempted but out of my price at the time. Found a link to it. Not quite the same as the other Barry Sullivan, but then again Maton always seemed to do variations on their guitars. Here's the link. Looks like a mighty fine beast. http://www.grous...

Re: Help me Brains trust (Maton JB4 content)

Yes, it appears later revisions of the JB4 did away with the pickguards. For some reason that pic is used for virtually all the jb4/jb5 and bs basses. I can only guess the original docs / pics have been lost. Anyway if you end up getting it, congrats! Would be interested to hear how much it was if t...

Re: Help me Brains trust (Maton JB4 content)

Have a look here, the pic matches yours. I think it's an early JB4. If you email Maton the serial number thay can tell you some info on the bass. When I did they were able to tell me the year and where it was made, they have moved factory locations a few times. http://www.matonmuseum.com.au/# http:/...
