BA2 is a direct replacement for toploading fenders, the BA3 is for string through fenders, the original only has 3 screws and is only for custom jobs really

Get a BAII pre-slotted and take a typing class.

TS, not to pick on you in particular, but as a general comment, forums aren't text messaging. While we aren't your English teacher, when you type in full sentences, with some semblance of punctuation and spelling, several things happen. One, your posts are much easier to read. Two, you come across as more intelligent. And finally, people are much more willing to help you out and respond to your posts.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Email the dealer, they should confirm whether its pre-grooved or not, but usually they aren't. A good shop or luthier should be able to do this for you for a minor fee.

As far as pricing--its a bit hard to tell based on Exchange rates. The shipping seems reasonable, but I know that you pay quite a bit more for music gear than we do in the States.

And yes, your last post was much easier on the eyes btw.

A little tip about the "getting ripped off" thing... a good practice is to look at several different stockists and compare prices. If one is selling it for a substantial amount more, it's gonna be a rip off.
This is a transferable skill useful when buying or trading in general.
I just had a vision of you two blokes doing a Suze Orman type financial presentation, complete with the overblown power points and such. I'm still laughing...

"Dear B and B:

I have this fund towards an Urge bass that is growing so slowly I am going to be an old age pensioner before it matures. How can maximize my fund to get my bass in this lifetime?"

"Dear Ms Mod

Have you considered sending out thousands of emails to random people recommending they buy random companies in the hope of manipulating stock prices slightly? This may increase your pension to a loaf of bread and a pint of milk a week.

Alternatively, for the portfolio of the more cautious investor, there's our share tip of the week - currently Chris Gearing Pickups. A dynamic young company, sure to expand over the coming months.

All the best! B"
