Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Unions are now pushing for the return of the ability to launch secondary boycotts. This was inevitable and probably needed. It is not just the unions calling for the return of this and other industrial bargaining measures, it has been a topic of discussion in Labor membership for some time now. http...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Only Hanson could oppose something and then say it should be implemented quicker. Oh.... probably Trump could too- similarly stupid supporter base. "The whole fact is, if they’re ­serious about this, then start doing something about it now," she told News Corp. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federa...

Dodgy as a three dollar bill. Look at where the neck joins the top of the body.
I agree.

Re: NBD 2017 Epiphone Vintage Pro Thunderbird

Another VP question ... do we know whether the VP pickups are the same as the EY Chinabuckers? I'm listing my Epi on eBay. Kat, short answer- from what I can gather, the collective Gibson Bass brains trust don't know. It is the subject of some discussion on other forums. I haven't pulled mine out o...

This looks so wrong to me, the alignment of the control plate to the body rings alarm bells. I thought the 75 has https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BASS-GUITAR-FENDER-JAZZ-IN-HARD-BLACK-CASE/183228168213?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649a triangle 3 screw neck plate?

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Very sad state of affairs. ABC News would like to clarify that neither ABC News nor the ABC’s independent complaints investigation found that an article on corporate tax written by Emma Alberici “wrongly claimed that Australia’s largest companies paid no tax despite earning billions” or “confused co...

Re: NBD 2017 Epiphone Vintage Pro Thunderbird

Russ, how does the VP compare in overall feel to a Gibson? Despite being the same scale length as the TBird PRO IV, my Orville* feels much more compact and comfortable to play (I'm only 165cm) with less of a reach to first position -- and it's ~500g lighter too. *Japanese built Gibson Hi Kat. My VP...

Curious move by the Government.

They should just go to a full election.

Re: NBD 2017 Epiphone Vintage Pro Thunderbird

I don't understand why no one is importing these into Oz, importer gone bust or something? That is a gorgeous Tbird,, and wow what a long headstock. HNBD Thanks! Yes, the importer appears to be bust but hasn't completely gone under, as I understand it. They still have one shop and little Gibson or ...

Re: NBD 2017 Epiphone Vintage Pro Thunderbird

Here's a good deal on one from Japan. Particularly if the seller will separate the shipping out to keep it under the $AU1K limit for GST. This is a different seller to the one I bought from. I don't know if he will be agreeable. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Epiphone-Thunderbird-Vintage-PRO-TSB-electric-...

That looks like a corker; good to hear the QC is right up there. :thumbup: Some of the stuff coming out of Indonesia these days can't be faulted; I've got an LTD 8 String here that cost me next to nothing, & the build quality is faultless. :yep I'd definitely be interested in finding out more about...

Re: NBD 2017 Epiphone Vintage Pro Thunderbird

How'd you go importing this with the CITES thingy etc? No problem. But I am not sure if it was missed or not. There was no special CITES declaration by the seller. I understand the fretboard is actually not Rosewood and is in fact a pine product- Blackwood Tek. (BYW seems to perform like Rosewood)....
