Nice, what year did they change the neck to the slimmer neck? Also are the pickups in a traditional J bass positions?

Re: Japan Visit

Amazing, I dragged my wife to so many shops in Japan. I loved trying all the brands we can't get here, my favorites were Edwards and FGN for great and reasonably priced Fender clones.

Re: Gibson facing bankruptcy

^^I reckon the QC stuff about Gibson is overblown. I have bought 5 new Gibson basses and 3 Gibson guitars over the last 10 years. Nothing wrong with any of them. I also have 5 vintage Gibson Norlin era basses and a vintage Gibson guitar. All good there too. I wish I could say the same about some of...

Did you say dual truss rod? As in, 2 truss rods in the neck like the old Warwick’s have? Or do you mean 2 way truss rod in that it can actively work concavely and convexly?
Pretty sure they are referring to stiffening rods in neck.

Re: the MOVIE REVIEW thread

Watched Murder on the Orient Express. It's was average 6/10, not bad but not amazing. If you like Agatha Christie the BBC show is much better.

Re: Options for posting basses

I posted a bass no gig bag using Pack and Send. I packed it using a bass box from a music shop and registered it online, all up was about $45 Brisbane to Melbourne.

Re: Tube Amps

I love the idea but am under no delusion I would buy a new amp anytime soon. However, I hope others do and it's successful.

Re: Bass friendly stores in Sydney?

Brisbane's got nothing much either. I know the feeling. The best stores I have found here is Guitar Brothers (stocks Fender, Yamaha, Cort, Xotic and second hand ) on Latrobe Tce and Music Express (Fender, EBMM, Spector, Warwick) in Mt Gravatt. Tym Guitars is great for second hand basses and effects...
