Re: Case for a Washburn Status Headless

The Bass measures 350mm across the widest point, and every case I have seen is either 340 or 335 across (internally), so I wouldn't want to order one like that without trying it out first. That one that Heath linked to is 343mm internally, which is so close. I may just take a trip to our local Super...

Re: Case for a Washburn Status Headless

I would prefer a hard case, but would consider a decent gig bag. Mono might be out of my price range though. I have up to $150 to spend.

Re: Case for a Washburn Status Headless

Do you know what brand? I have an SKB strat case and a no-name off ebay ABS case and it won't fit in either without serious padding surgery

Case for a Washburn Status Headless

My Washburn Status is currently wallowing around inside a standard bass case. It's not ideal because it canslide all over the place - not really what you would want. The case is pretty busted so I am going to replace it. Wonder what other people use. It looks like a standard guitar case could be abo...

Re: Clean power supply using power bank battery

It looks like a voltage converter with a USB cable attached. you then plug in one of the mobile phone battery bank charger things. I guess the advantage is that you can swap out a flat battery easily enough. Seems pricey for what it is though.

Re: Preamps - how many is too many?

I mostly play at church, so I am a situation where I turn up, rehearse a few songs and then play them, rather than working on getting a standard set down. I plug into the church's amp, so I usually leave that set as flat as I can, and have a variety of tones set up on a Boss GT-6B, so I can pick an ...

Re: Rosewood bans..

I am guessing they mean that no 60's Fenders had Pau Ferro fretboards, so any "traditional 60's style" instruments would be inaccurate if they had Pau Ferro instead of Rosewood.

Re: Change neck pocket corner radius?

That's what I would have done too - otherwise in 137 years time you will have somebody cursing you out for modifying a vintage Fender body :-)

Re: Can hardly slide my thumb on the back of an American P Bass neck

Along with this - I polish clear finishes with MicroMesh - going finer and finer until it is glossy. I suspect you could go the other way and start with the finest grit and work coarser until you got the finish you wanted. There is no metal at all, and so the only stuff falling off would be very fin...

Re: Another dumb bass bridge question

I have a Badass on my fretless. It came likr that. I've always liked it, but can't compare ti with anything else because that was the bridge that was always there.

Re: Solid state amps - done and dusted? or still in the game?

I'm glad there are so many offerings as I hate complicated. I once owned a massive rig with a cajillion band EQ, I just need Low, low mid, high mid, high these days. And for all that I like a versatile amp, my 400W amp sits as a practice amp at home and I plug my effects into whatever amp is handy ...

Re: Solid state amps - done and dusted? or still in the game?

One thing that I have noticed and kind of miss a bit is that the older amps often used to have more control options available - a bigger amp needed a bigger box and so had more front panel room. My old Eminar amp has gain, volume, 4 band EQ, switchable 9 band graphic (instantly 2 tones available), a...

Re: Forstner bit - vintage tuner bore hole size

Oh yeah, somebody asked a question about drill bits. If it were me I'd buy the tuners first and then buy the bit to suit. They are not always the exact same dimensions. Of course, you could always just buy a whole set of bits :-)
