Re: Maton JB4 Lives Again! (The Proof Is Here)

There was a period of time in my life where just about every Australian band I saw live featured a bass player playing either a JB4 or a Stingray

(Zombie alert!)

So - who knows why the JB4 is currently out of production again?
"PLEASE NOTE: This guitar is currently unavailable, stay tuned for exciting developments across the range of Maton electrics."

Maybe outsourcing to China?

Re: FS: O'Neill 100w B-15 Clone - $1250 shipped

There's no gain/master volume (just like a B15) so you won't get the overdriven grind that you can get out of a V4B Yeah I don't think I would be chasing grind with this - just that big fat girthy tube tone for the times I don't want to roll out the SB300 I ran mine with a 610 a few times and it di...

Is this your old amp, Mark?
No, mine was a twin channel version and was clad in Ampeg navy check cloth. Narcdor owns that now.

Re: Ebay thread PART TWO - the good, bad, and ridiculous...

A B00 neck is easily worth well above $500, so at the asking price of $1000 you just need to add up the other parts and do the maths. If it's a good player $1000 is probably a fair price if you can live with the visual mods.

Re: Rant Thread !

I've disabled the fingerprint scan on my phone, as I find a 4 digit passcode quick enough. Pete, back on the previous topic (CPAP) - how do those masks go if you are a restless sleeper?

Re: Pitch shifters... Recommendations???

Buy a 5 string? Haha... Nup. Hate em. :neener: So do I, but I thought I'd throw it out there based on the people who claim you "must" have a 5 string for certain genres of music. I have no trouble shaking the floorboards playing a D or D# on the A string, so I don't understand guitarists who insist...

Re: FS Orville by Gibson Thunderbird

Great price. For those who don't know the differences, this model Orville is just like a Gibson in terms of pickup position and neck profile/width (ie. Jazz bass width at the nut). The more common Greco birds have P bass width necks.

Re: Live music and music shops in Hobart?

Is the Republic Bar still hosting live music? Used to be the busiest live music pub in Hobart. Rod should pop into the thread at some time and confirm.

Re: NBD: Gibby EB-3

There are aftermarket bridges to replace the Gibby 3 point bridge that bolt straight into the standard mounting holes - Babicz and Hipshot for example
