Recommend a good multi-guitar stand

The ones I get from eBay aren't good enough. The little bit that holds the necks in place are too flimsy. One bump and they snap off.

Needs to hold at least 5 electric basses. What's your recommendation? Or perhaps you are offloading one?

The tv was playing Rage, I was playing along.
How did the U-bass cope with drop-D tuning?
Ha, I didn't bother with that ....... the audience didn't mind :p

Re: NBD - Mahalo U-Bass

Where did you go looking for them? Do you mean which shops? I bought from Shake it up music in Nambour. I live in Hervey Bay and was driving to the Gold Coast to watch some Commonwealth Games action. So I decided to pop into some music shops on the way ..... Then got lucky at the first place I went.

Re: NBD - Mahalo U-Bass

Great score Pete, bargain. Ideal bass for your needs. :thumbup: Do you like the Thundergut strings? How's the intonation? I have those strings on my Ashbory as well. I like the feel of them, but they don't "cut through" like the original Ashbory strings. The intonation seems good. Having a tuner bu...

NBD - Mahalo U-Bass

Don't worry, I'd never heard of them either, certainly not for their basses. Ok so here's what I wanted:- * Something fretted I could noodle on (or learn new songs on) out the back of my Ice Cream shop when it's quiet and all my other work is up to date. * To replace the Michael Kelly fretless acous...

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

If Labor are smart they will stick to their guns between now and just before the campaign starts, and then Shorten could announce that he is "retiring for family reasons" and won't be standing at the election. Then he can hand over the reins to Tanya Plibersek to lead the election campaign, and she...

Re: 2018 iPhone killers?

I had a Huawei P8 and while it was good for the price, it had a bastardised version of Android, and it was full of bloatware. The camera was very ordinary. After 2 years, the Wi-Fi just suddenly stopped working. I hope the later versions sorted these problems out. I replaced it with a Samsung S6 and...

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

..... Turnbull should have had Abbott removed entirely and then moved to purge the crazed right wing conservatives in his party if he actually wanted to move the needle, but that wasn't his interest. Those far right crazies are the ones who helped him oust Abbott. Turnbull owes them. The only way h...

Re: Ok, who has the oldest five string?

Hay Guys, thanks for the comeback. I'm quite sure I'll have plenty of additional questions before this thing is done. Will try and post some before and after photos as the project advances. Always nice to have the input from others, helps avoid making stupid mistakes. No worries. And there are plen...

Re: Ok, who has the oldest five string?

Hi Buz71, welcome aboard. From what I can tell, the RBX5 came standard with passive PJ pickup configuration, so the wiring shouldn't be too complicated ..... Assuming yours hadn't had any modifications of course. They seem to have come stock with two volume controls (one for each pickup), and a pass...

Given all three are not appealing, I'm guessing there is a chance the length of their bans might get reduced for "good behaviour"
I have a feeling that may only come into play for 2 of them.......
