Re: What bass guitar sounds DON'T you like?

sorry for digging up an ancient thread. I know a lot of people find it annoying for some reason. :) Fine by me, I missed it the first time around :) I do 90% of my gigs on a bass with one pickup (stingray) and I'm just fine with it. Other bass players like it. On the gigs where I take a bass with t...

Re: NBD: Musicman

Awesome, I've always wanted one of these. Can I ask what's the weight like on it out of curiosity?

Re: Record with flats, gig with rounds?

lots of wise advice here. I am really stuck at the moment, totally confused as to which I prefer, flats or rounds. So I guess the answer is that I swing both ways hehe Well it's quite a generalisation but IMO it's a lot easier to eq rounds to sound like flats than the other way around. Fairly dead ...

Re: Short scale bass ideas?

For me at least transitioning to and from a short scale depends a lot on how it's laid out, and particularly how close to the endpin the bridge is located. I have two shorties (both 30"). One has a trapeze and the bridge is located a longgg way from the endpin. The reach to the first fret is only sl...

Not sure myself Matt. It's a fabulous bass but for some reason every time I was going out the door for some reason I found myself taking something else.

FS: Sadowsky Metro MV4-HPJ $2500

Well yet another item fails the "12 month" test so away it goes. This time it's my Sadowsky Metro Hybrid P/J in 3 tone sunburst. I've owned it since new and it's been treated like a baby. It's about as near new as a bass that's been played can be. I couldn't find a mark on it when I just got it out ...

Re: WTB: phil Jones BigHead

I missed out on the previous group buy from Thoman and am interested in buying one of these. Is there anyone in Ozbass land thinking of selling theirs? I guess I have ears of stone, 'cause this is ozbass heresy..... I had one of these for ages, and loved the sound of it, but I was surprised to find...
