I'm still GASing hard for an old 1306 or 886. The tight spacing and thin necks are more playable to me than most 6-ers, what with my short little baby fingers.

. Played one of these again recently. Want. So. Bad. Just the best off all worlds Fender.

And on the Soundblox Bass Distortion that's a really solid pedal; I love mine. I also own that EB Volume pedal and its really rugged and great for the cost.

Well, today i went to a bassist gathering and i got to play a Tobias, a Fodera NYC, an American Deluxe Jazz, some luthier made basses, and this was the best of them all:


Made from the (somewhat) world known argentinean luthier, Daniel Fernández. I haven't seen anything in my whole life that breathes exceptional work of art as this bass. Also, a whole experience to play. Everything tight and steady, and it just looks and feel soo nice!!
Definetly outstanding.

On more realistic gas, this:

I've been talking with this guys, and i may be able to buy a luthier made Stingray for almost the same price as one of this new (economics in Argentina are that weird, I know). Still, I have much to research yet.
Also, I would like a transportable 500W amp. Coulg be a Little Mark III or MB500 or Genz Benz Shuttle, or TC Electronics RH450, or something like that. That would be for later, as now I think it would be better to upgrade my bass once and for all (only owned entry level basses so far)...

Most of these basses are actually new and a right of the box without any setups at all.

have you ever tinkered around with one of them fancy hot hand devices?

I've seen lots of youtubes and I'm intrigued, but I can't really figure out how useful it will be or if it's just something one would get tired of after the novelty's worn off.

I have the hot hand 3 along with the source audio bef. I have found ot useful for messing around in the studio doing a electronic project with my buddy and I do use it live in my band for four songs or so. Cool for flamenco strumming stuff, chords and melodic baselines to add a tremolo like effect to them. Definitely very fun to mess around with and I'm finding new practical applications for it all the time.

Although Ibanez have stated that they'll send over their Japanese inspectors more often than what is currently scheduled.


Sounds like they need FEMA Inspectors.

^ for some reason, the dolphin body is one of the two warwicks I just cannot get into. that and the katana. there's just something about the profile of the two respective bodies that irks me.

I mean, that flat black with black accessories is sexy as all get out and I would love it if it were a corvette or a streamer but that dolphin... mrrrrr...

Warwick built the Vampyre and the Katana, so in my mind they can do no wrong.



Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

Don't get me wrong, Warwick is arguably my favourite bass manufacturer. Just the dolphin (and katana)...

That^ vampyre is gorgeous.

Yeah no problem those videos are pretty cool if your into that kind of thing and it works great for that style. Though there are tons of different applications for it besides dub wobbles haha

i think the dolphin and the katana look best when they are being played. something about the angle that they are held has alot to do with their looks imo. how on earth did i forget the vampye? i had a rockbass - until the head snapped off - and it was a joy to play and look at, then warwick give you all the crazy awesome paint jobs PURPLE TORTOISESHELL GOOD LORD YES and i my day is then ruined by the inability i have to pay for one at this point in time.
