Re: POLL Winner - Sydney GTG Sat 4th Nov 2017.

Gear: Genzler rig (Magellan head, 2 BA12-3 cabs); my brand-new pedal board (never thought I'd go that way) with a Boss MS-3 and a couple of other things. Basses: definitely 4 of my builds: original Kermit 6 string m...

Re: Future Builds - Maybe Random

Quick update on progress in the Kermit family. Coffee table much? Well, this little baby looks rather sophisticated and benign but once pickup and electronics (SD Musicman replacement kit) are in this will be a rock and funk monster!

Re: Show us your gigs.

Last Thursday morning in Nagambie, supporting Neal Daniher's MND Drive. First gig with this particular line-up, everyone played superbly, and apparently FOH sound was outstanding as well. Plus we supported a very good cause - win on all fronts. https://www.flickr.com/photos/94660385@N02/36990219554/...

Learned this Toto song a few days ago for a jam session:

Why did I see this only today? Used to play this in the early 90s as a sound-check tune :) .

As usual, flawless rendition.

Re: DIY Refinish

Oils will go on with a rag, so no spray gun needed. Please be careful with the used rags though. I have heard of them igniting - especially when too many are in the same place. Don't put them all in the same bin together. A bit of light sandign every coat or 2 can help. Personally I have used and r...

Re: DIY Refinish

I started using Osmo products (developed for timber floors, mostly) and have to say I am realy happy with that. Have a look in my Commercial Users thread for one example (the “Q” - just two coats, no sanding at all), currently have two more on the go. Where in Melbourne are you? Happy to show you wh...

Re: NBD Stingray adventures

OK, bear with me, possibly a little more info than you asked for but just trying to make sense. Here's a pic of a typical white ash tree: http://www.hort.uconn.edu/plants/plantPhotos/fraame01.jpg Easy to see the stem going up straight a fair way but branching starts fairly low down the trunk. What d...

Re: NBD Stingray adventures

My '81 Musician is like that. 5.1kg. I believe it's made of Granite Ash. My understanding is that hard or northern ash and swamp ash come from the same tree. The stuff at the bottom of the tree, growing in the swamp, retains more water than the wood at the top of the tree. When it gets cut down and...

Re: NBD Stingray adventures

Solid colour. Well that kills that theory..... I had wondered if the ones with the more pronounced grain might have been lighter and more suitable for the clear and 'burst finishes. NotTheFish guessed the weight, based on the grain looking similar to one he used to own. Of course yours could be wid...
