Re: Let's See Your Basses... TWO! (Post Photobucket $)

Sure, I'll play. Current only? Well, I'll throw one in that's been inspirational yet ended up being sold.

^ I'd like to see you make a purple one too. :)
Is that you, Delia? ;)

I'm sure there'll come a time when this happens - one of my favourite colours, purple.

Re: What do your kids think of your basses?

My son (almost 20) plays bass himself and actually had a big hand in designing the one I built for him (which has since evolved into the Manta) so he's interested and happy to comment. My daughter (15) comments on colours and shapes (my builds have some of those attributes) and is generally positive...

Re: Line Array PA

One of these days, I'd like to design and build one of these, but voice it specifically for bass guitar. Basically take this idea and the Genzler array cabs, and take the best of both worlds to make a killer bass array that sits up near your ears all times. One day........ Although I could just run...

FS - Yamaha RBX765 De-Fretted

Now that I completed Gaia I really don't need this one any more. Bought second-hand a couple of years ago. De-fretted, decent rather than stellar job but sings quite nicely when the mwah question is asked. All I did was clean it up, set it up with some old DR Hi-Beams and play it maybe 20 times all ...

Re: NBD - Birth Year P With Tort Guard

controls: series/parallel switch for each pickup; three way pickup selector (neck/series/bridge) vol (active/passive), bass, mid, treble. Is the volume knob push-pull for passive-active? Any blend control? is that even needed in series? Do two PU's close together act like a MM pickup? Is there any ...

Very fancy!! It's more Oscar than Kermit IMO.

PS. Title didn't trick me.... you'd be the last person to wax lyrical about a birth year bass.
Thanks, Owen.

Just a little leg-pulling, it took me a lot of will power to use "birth year", "P" and "tort" in one line ;) .

Re: Future Builds - Maybe Random

Final post here, I think you all get the idea. I'll start a thread in the Commercial Users section in the next week or so. Anyway, the second Kermit-style bass is now finished, and I have to say I am happy with it. Some pics first. https://www.flickr.com/photos/94660385@N02/35842896474/in/dateposted...
