Anyone like bass guitars?

Dodgy rythym and thick strings here...

Picked up a little Blackstar Fly Bass amp today, its pretty decent sounding for such a small amp, and on the subject of budget stuff... the Behringer SF300 (Boss FZ-2 clone) sounds killer with bass, looking forward to spending some more time with it!

Rewired the Artist 5 string tonight, ripped out all the active circuitry bullshit and replaced the 500k pots with 250k, doing standard PJ wiring, 1 vol per pickup and master tone, had a spare pot hole in the guard so put a jack in there, much easier than using the recessed one in the body.

Sounds better now and seems louder too!

The cheap setup kit I bought on tardme arrived the other day, had a play today with it and took various internet advices around recommended string heights and got it playing quite nicely with pretty much no buzz anywhere, higher action than I'm used to with a guitar but I guess thats how they roll!

Running about 2.75mm on the low B and E seems to be the sweet spot on this instrument.
