Re: Rosewood bans..

Warmoth have released a statement saying they are CITES compliant now, so it's possible others have also jumped through the hoops. Can't hurt to ask. I have just asked a supplier in the UK about CITES compliance... fingers crossed. :popcorn: Ok they have said they are CITES compliant but want me to...

Re: Using USB Batteries to power effect pedals...?

I really don't see the point of this device when there are options like the pedal juice.

Re: WTB Yamaha bb1025x

Yeah.....a nice one too. In that lovely transparent caramel colour which is extremely hard to find. I'm pretty sure I came across it on ebay. Yeah, I saw that. I want a 5er unfortunately and I can't locate one at the moment. Lots of fours. There's a 1025 without the X on Ishibashi right now. Amazin...

WTB Yamaha bb1025x

Hi folks, I am on the lookout for a yamaha bb1025x (or even 2025x). If you're thinking about parting with one or know about one that's available please let me know. There are a few sales on but I haven't found it locally in Oz. May have to import but I thought I might beat the bushes here first. Che...

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

^there are two ways this could have gone... 1) apologies accepted, and everyone walks away from this ... 2) contempt charges pursued and a great big, smelly can of worms is opened... right or wrong, the path of expediency was taken (as is the norm). rest assured, however, these 3 ministers now have...

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

^on the other hand, if they DON'T go light on the ministers they could be seen as being politically motivated against the LNP. It's a no-win/no-win situation; spurred on by irresponsible media and realised by the irresponsible actions of 3 rather unwise ministers. looks like nothing is going to hap...

Re: >1K bass import via Thomann and Customs/GST??

I'm not really arguing with you, but that would require the seller to look up the Customs website etc, which seems a bit counter-intuitive. The Customs bloke told me that going on what I had told him the Stat Code was 48 and when I looked on their website to check it was correct. This may help some...

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

This will be interesting today. Hunt, Tudge and Sukkar appear to have realised it is a serious matter to slag off at the court, particularly while it is yet to hand down a decision on the matter you are slagging off about and you are part of the Government. Amazingly, they appear to have cooked up ...

Re: Opinions similar basses to the Stingray 5 body/neck design

You're going to be lying in bed tonight trying to remember everything about that bass. Oops :) Maybe... haha, but I do now recall it felt strange on a strap, didn't quite balance to my liking. A bit like the spector I used to have, seemed like it was running away from me when I was reaching for the...

Re: Opinions similar basses to the Stingray 5 body/neck design

Here's one from left field - I actually got some Stingray tones out of a Warwick Double Buck that I once tried in a shop. Mind you this was a long time ago, well before Warwick introduced their newer and slimmer neck profile. There was no way I was going to consider that bass while the only neck op...

Re: Opinions similar basses to the Stingray 5 body/neck design

I've actually been in this position before that saw me go thru a long line of basses in search of the ultimate 5-string that would compliment or replace the Stingray5. There is none like the Stingray5. I tried a Pedulla Rapture 5, Lakland 55/94, Lakland 55/64, Fender Dimension Deluxe 5, etc. only t...
