Re: 1967 Maton L 101 'Lute' Bass Restoration Help

I can't really give you any help, but I used to own an old Maton "Big Ben" Bass. A few years earlier than yours. It had the horrible guitar style tuners. Eventually the nylon turned but the shaft didn't. Mine never has a truss rod, so the neck snapped. A permanent, non adjustable rod was used to rep...

I think you misread that Mark. It's $100 deposit and the balance of $1699 when stock arrives.

Re: WTB - Bass Cab 410 or similar

I know nothing about it. I saw it, while searching around, and I remembered your post. It seemed to fit your criteria. I just looked up the Carvin site and it says it weighs 30kg.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Terrifying is somewhat subjective, but road deaths in other countries can be significantly higher, as they are in Asia, but I'd say guns are more terrifying than cars. As we know statistics are just numbers, and accountants make them work their way, politicians have their own bent. All I was saying ...

Is there a level meter you could use to cut the electricity once the signal hits a predetermined volume?

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

What about the added charge of up to $7 per parcel to, so call, pay for the extra border force personnel (whom according to their tv program "dedicate their lives to protecting Australia" :lol: ) needed to scan and scrutinize the massive increase of parcels entering the country? Sounds like another ...

Re: WTB: Rickenbacker pickups

The Talkbass home page has an article about a Nordstrand Nordenbocker big single neck pickup priced at US$113. Other than that, I'm out.

Am I right in assuming it comes with a hard case? And could you tell us how much it weighs?

Luckily Ballarat is too far away for me to take a leisurely drive, and deal with this evil temptation. Because the only way to get rid of tempatation is to yeild to it. And please don't tell me you're regularly down my way.

I don't know anything about durbano magnets but I do know Mr Fabulous. Didn't know he dealt with basses. He's easy to talk to, get along, and deal with.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Re: Child Support

Yeah well, I'm certainly struggling to think of a worse year ..... I fully expect to be taken to the cleaners, anything better than that will be seen as a bonus (my lawyer seems to know what he's doing). I'm mentally preparing myself to have to start all over again at 45. You wont need to struggle ...
