There are still some that think the neck PU is moved to accommodate the extra frets which only proves they cannot detect the difference in length of each.

anyone know anyone who wants a good cheapy?

I went a bit mental buying every good cheap bass I could find.

anyway: I have an LTD Viper 104, with an emg and single volume pot $200 (you can have the original electronics if you need a stock instrument)
or a Sterling Ray 4 with emg P bass pick ups. $450 comes with the original electronics.
or both for 500 pick up Auckland.

not his iconic bass so why bother?


In other news, somebody silly has loaned me an iconic bass... It'll live in its case, for fear of me tripping over it when drunk.

Have to say Planet Earth has never sounded so good. Fuck those roundwound strings though!

Nice BG.

I have been spending some time on bass, decided to learn how to play when I was stuck in Melbourne. Needed a break from guitar. Back in Melbourne now. Other basses are hidden.....900w Darkglass amp and stack, cause you need that in an apartment.

Neighbours hate me.

Apartment overkill, my neighbour in parnell, 20 years ago, hated my headphone volume!

Basses are great, I just don't want the responsibility of this, I know I'll ding it. I'll put it in its case and play my dingers ;)

Thanks to the afore mentioned aria bass loan. I'm now sitting at 85% speed at playing Rio, syncopation and all. _smugness_

Fingers are fucking bleeding due to roundwound strings though...
