If the amps are the same circuit-wise and dimensionally then I don't see what difference it makes. Could be a factory error, or the result of someone messing around with it. I don't think you'll get...

The lower-tier lines (RockBass and Legend) of both brands are over-priced for what they are. The Warwick is probably preferable to the Spector, though still not a great buy. Conversely the used...

If you're living in the UK anyway, Rotosound are a great option because they're pretty cheap over here. Just don't buy the Swing branded ones (with the silk-coated ends) - you can get the same...

I was on holiday in southern Turkey during a heatwave and it reached the mid 50's in Celsius (~130 Fahrenheit). It's usually the lower end of the 40's in Turkey, which I can tolerate/enjoy - 55C...

This is pretty much the case - I've read that it wasn't known that the separatists had any SAM weaponry, which might have influenced the decision to fly commercial aircraft overhead.

My Gibson Explorer (bass) had a metal nut, so that wouldn't surprise me. You don't need a lot of glue, just a couple of dabs to hold it in place - the strings will hold it in place completely -...

I'd personally have to opt for the VT bass, but I'm a little biased (it is a fantastic sounding unit, but both are). You can't go wrong with either - though the VT perhaps has a wider range of sounds.

Ben Kenney of Incubus is first and foremost a guitar player - though I haven't heard any of his stuff.

You need to strip back, I think. Try running your bass flat, into your amp flat, without any effects. Listen to it closely, and decide where you need to go from there.

Or, yeah, just get a Sansamp.
