Re: International Rosewood

Any recent experiences with any of you buying a bass with a rosewood board from overseas on eBay/Reverb etc - specifically from Japan. Used bass, rosewood board. Are the Japanese sellers across this requirement? If they don't attach a CITES certificate does the package get confiscated by Oz customs...

Brisbane's got nothing much either.

Re: The JMJ has landed - initial verdict

I’ve never really experienced a negative “meh” feeling about playing a new instrument, but i am with this one. It’s a nice bass, but it’s not nicer than the PJ Mustang. Im hoping this will prove to be a reverse honeymoon period and in a few weeks i will be gushing, but after an hour of playing it, ...

Re: FS - 1972 Fender Jazz

Nice bass. Good luck with the sale.

How sure are you the hardware that was reinstalled was original?
I ask because the tuners don't look like the correct ones for 72- stem should be longer and they should be nickel. Those look to be possiblythe late 70s Fender badged Schallers or reissues.

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

Here we go. As predicted privatisation of Centrelink and Medicare. Trash the brand first- check. Here's an idea to save money, Malcolm. Don't cut taxes to the ultra big companies (that do pay tax). https://www.wsj.com/articles/australia-eyes-privatization-of-public-health-and-welfare-payments-145499...

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

Tanya is our best politician by far. The most intelligent, and the one with the most empathy for those worse off. But they will find some dirt on her when she gets close to the top I'm afraid. Males will fight back hard. Shorten is a dead man walking, he can't win an election. Yes, they will bring ...

Re: Neil Finn to join Fleetwood Mac

Maybe the naysayers are mostly from Oz & NZ.... always the way. Globally, how many Fleetwood Mac fans know of him? Globally, do these FM fans even know of Crowded House/Split Endz? I'm always surprised on overseas bass forums by how much love for CH there is all over the world. They were bigger wor...

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

Not just "normal" jobs for the boys. This is a Turnbull government special. This one involves a plum job for a sacked Minister. The reason he was sacked? Publicly running down Australia's military ship builder. Yes, he is the one who said he wouldn't trust them to build a canoe. What is the plum job...

Re: Neil Finn to join Fleetwood Mac

Yeah, saw it. Will Fleetwood Mac change the key for all their songs? I think not.... Stevie loves an F. Will Tim be able to sing in a key without a Bzillion flats in it? Funny.... we do an inordinate amount of songs from both Fleetwood Mac and Crowded House/ Split Enz. I can think of no more differe...

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

Tanya has a problem though. The inevitable unfavorable "look what happened last time we had a female" headlines. The media will run with it, and people will vote for whoever the media tells them to vote for. I know what you are saying, Pete, but that is a pretty sick sort of headline (not saying it...

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

Plenty of talk about Malcolm's 30 consecutive losing Newspolls. Some of it suggesting that the Coalition has actually only won one Newpoll in the last 61 or 122 weeks. Not true. Their record is abysmal but one out of 61 is not true. It was not Abbott losing 30, one in front and then 30 Turnbull losi...

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

The process to replace an ALP leader is cumbersome. I think it could be difficult to make all the ballots etc happen in a "snap fashion" unless there was only one person nominate. Can't they just call a stop work meeting and have a show of hands? LOL- full membership and federal caucus votes. I thi...

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

If Labor are smart they will stick to their guns between now and just before the campaign starts, and then Shorten could announce that he is "retiring for family reasons" and won't be standing at the election. Then he can hand over the reins to Tanya Plibersek to lead the election campaign, and she...
