Won't see another like this. Worth a read of the ad, if you are interested in old fenders.

Very cool, I want to believe the story. Love the aesthetics.

Re: Loop Switcher signal path

Thats a very specific question. Typically loopers run in series e.g. loop 1 > loop 2 > loop 3 etc not sure on the Joyo one. You would be best to find the manual online and see what it says.

Re: Comp & Octaver (?) advice

I really like the MXR Compressor. Its 5 knobs but easy to dial in due to its meter and sounds good.

Octaves - I love the tone from the OC2, the EHX MicroPog / NanoPog are great too, the best tracking pedals I have ever used and gives you the option of octave up too.

Re: Warmouth neck "support" rods

Dead spots occur when there is sympathetic vibration in the neck. The natural frequency of a beam (neck) is dependent on the mass and stiffness of the beam. You can change the natural frequency of a neck by changing either of these which is exactly what both solutions do. Incidentally you can greatl...

Re: List your basses from MOST used to LEAST used

Ok I will play. Due to work travel I have only played at home for last few years. 1. Mailloux Jaguar PJ 4 string with Sadowsky Blue SS. I love this bass, fantastic sound and versatile. The only con is the neck moves a bit. 2. Lakland Skyline JO5 W/fralins and Sadowsky Blue SS for when I want a 5. Al...

I have used Imgur before and it is the easiest photo site I have tried. Pretty sure it's pronounced Imager.

Re: Mesa Boogie Big Block 750

I remember trying one of these in a shop and thinking it was amazing. From memory these were around $3500 new. Unfortunately I don't play in any bands at the moment.

Re: Elf anyone?

I'm really interested in the 2x8 they are bringing out... not sure how loud it can get realistically... 2 of those would be an easy load in for sure! Tom Bowlus on Talkbass seemed to think the 2of the 2x8 with a 500W head was plenty for majority of gigs and sounded great. So definitely very interes...

Re: What Image Sharing Sites Do Members Recommend

I have been using Imgur which is dead easy to use but recently it has become more like a social network type site where people can comment on pictures etc. I am pretty sure that you can disable tbat though from your pics.

Re: Project Spitfire - The Rosewood/Morado/Cypress 56 P Bass

Looks great. What do you mean by Fender veneer board? From your post it sounds like you radiused the neck then clamped a flat board to the neck so it conformed to the neck radius?

Still hasn't sunk in; ironically he came up today in a discussion I was having with a mate. Talk about getting thrown a curve ball!

Confirmed suicide unfortunately :( terrible news, must be devastating for the family and band.

Re: Where to start with home entertainment?

I am no expert but I have a pair of Q Acoustics 2020i bookshelf speakers and a Denon amp which sound great to me. The Q Acoustics were the best value bookshelf speakers I found when I was looking. One thing I found going into HiFi shops was that they either wanted to sell you a Home Theatre in a Box...

Re: Thought's on this new song.

I think some of the piano voicings remind me of Bowie? Its listenable, not what I expected from Harry Styles. I had a similar epiphany with Bruno Mars, I dismissed because of his first couple singles (Lazy Song) but he definitely has some great tunes which are almost a tribute to 70s and 80s rock an...
