Guy's just picked this up in part trade for my epiphone,




Obviously you all know me and this won't be staying stock for very long, active wiring and a new brass nut are planned and the pickups have already been replaced with pickups from a random Tobias bass between those pics being taken and my acquiring the bass.

I need opinions on hardware colour. I'm not a fan of the flat silver hardware so I put it to you guys, black, gold or chrome?

Very nice Dan. I'd go black, or gold as a second choice. IMO chrome wouldn't look that much different than the current brushed chrome, what with the dark finish, RW board and matching headstock. Black would look really nice, gold too depending on if you're one of those people who thinks gold hardware is gaudy or not.

With that finish, I'd say black. Gold hardware seems to be hit or miss, but maybe it could work too.

Well; they just caught suckweed number two from the Boston Marathon bombing. Stand by for three days of non-stop reporting on crap that already happened, but with nothing new.

Twenty-four hour news is a real curse sometimes.

I have scrupulously avoided getting a Twitter account. I view it much like the scourge of heroin addiction, only it has less class.

There's always The Onion.

I rarely update my facebook stauts much less want to tweet everything i do. If it wasn't for band promotion or college friends i probably wouldn't care to have one. I'm so not ready to see the news fallout of this boston bombings on the tv at work on monday.

I have bought a few basses from Japan before although it was from direct contact with a friend of mine. Just keep in mind that there are a few restrictions if you live in the UK.

If you're after a Bacchus Jazz clone, BassNW has a used on in stock for a very reasonable price ($450 USD): http://www.bassnw.com/Used%20Basses...tallic_blue.htm You'd probably have an easier time importing from the States than Japan.

They also have a gorgeous Pedulla Hexabuzz that I hope is still there in May so I can get my grubby hands on it.

God, the guys at Bass Strings on line are great. Just got help on getting a decent 6 string custom set for the Brice (which has incredibly dead strings at the moment

Japan Post has this stupid 4.5Kg weight limit on packages going to the UK. There's also the issue with the fact that you want a Bacchus. Which you'll won't end up with a new instrument since Bacchus has a no exportation clause in their dealership contracts. They can't sell you a new instrument but they can sell you a used instrument.

Anyways if Japan Post doesn't handle the package it will be either DHL( ) or UPS( ).

Ireland isnt in the uk so i should be ok on that point. Ive just been talking to a guy a from basschat who gave me the email of a sales guy at deviser the parent company, who he bought a new bacchus through so im pretty hopeful at the moment.

Also that blue bacchus jazz was disgusting. Blue......
