Re: The Fender JMJ Mustang has landed - now with photos

Justin Meldal-Johnsen (jmjbassplayer), the actual signature artist, has now seen the photos of my Fender JMJ Mustang bass, and has stated the following on Talkbass: ‘’ Yeah, whoah that flaking/checking is WAAAAY out of bounds, and frankly the pickup should be plenty hot. Sorry it's a bummer for you...

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

Barely a bump in the polls for Labor over all this. I can't stomach this bs that they 'got it wrong', when they did everything they could to protect the banks when the whole mess was already smelling foul. But I can't see Shorten ever winning office. I can't help think he's all a bit inauthentic eve...

Re: Can a faulty lead "Scream"? EDIT- no it can't. Preamp Problem.

I think the problem is solved! Apparently the tech found several more dry solder joints. He obviously knows more about what to look for than I do. He said he plugged the bass in and heard it scream within minutes. A few solder joints later and the bass is as good as new. Only charged $70. Great to ...

He's on a roll today. Channelling his inner Hockey. Australians can forget about relying on the age pension when they retire, according to Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison. And yet in the same breath. He also indicated super tax breaks for the very wealthy will also be reined in, a backflip on what...

Here we go. As predicted privatisation of Centrelink and Medicare. Trash the brand first- check. Here's an idea to save money, Malcolm.

Shorten is a dead man walking, he can't win an election.
I agree, I'm wondering if the dividend goes to the minor parties

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? The liberal party prefer that the wage-slaves just s...

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

I am a bit over the "it's everybody else but Malcolm's fault" stuff. Totally agree They are unpopular because their policies stink and they operate like a rabble. The only thing that keeps them anywhere near the hunt is the poor public perception of Shorten, the cultivation of which seems to be the...
