    That one is non-negotiable. I used to think people who were buried with treasured possessions were definitely weird but I may be reconsidering that.

    Lately, though, I've been using that Big Al 5H...

    I must have 30 songs in different states of completion. I recorded most of the rhythm guitars myself with a Strat or a Tele. It's difficult to NOT consider going back in and re-recording all of...

    "The Vault" now has a different meaning! Before, it was stuff that Sterling forgot was under his bed. Now, it's stuff you can buy.

    Which is even COOLER.

    The knobs go UP AND DOWN and change things, Magnus! I mean they don't just turn around and around like you'd think.

    I'll get this sorted because I have The Internet. It is without a doubt the...

    I Don't Even Know Who I Am Anymore

    Ahem. I guess some of you might know me from THE REAL FORUM aka The Bass Side, where I hang out and do the moderator gig. Some of you may even know that I actually play bass and have a veritable...

    Frankly, I'm not even sure this is really a bass.

    No sir. I've learned my lesson with fretless basses.

    I do, however, have a new Music Man instrument on the way!

    (It's got frets.)

    I got the bass in a trade and had it for a couple of weeks and didn't play it much except to adjust the action and intonation - and put good strings on it. so NO, I didn't really note the tiny "N" in...

    Well, that may well be a Nordstrand pickup. I blew my photos up and there might be a little "N" in the corner.

    So I messaged him back and said, "You might be right. I had to look closely at the...
  18. Does anything about this pickup suggest it's NOT original?

    Sold a Stingray 4HP on Reverb and the buyer was happy. I was happy. The dog was happy. Then yesterday, I get a message from him saying the bass had belonged to Johnny Long (whoever that is) and...

    If it feels good, then it IS good. I've had a neck or two like that myself.
