  1. Neil Pye liked two fingers's post in the thread could you please sell me on Jaco?.

    People who enjoy one kind of music over another are not closed-minded. I like baroque music more than the classical period. I like...

  2. Neil Pye liked retslock's post in the thread could you please sell me on Jaco?.

  3. Neil Pye liked IPA's post in the thread could you please sell me on Jaco?.

    Every time I listen to one of his live videos it sounds like one of those "_ shreds" parody videos. I 'get' a lot of improv, I can enjoy...

    That was my gut feeling, too. One of the players in my orchestra has a similar looking instrument. Obviously antiqued, not old, but...

  7. Neil Pye liked geoffbassist's post in the thread Trying to determine age of a DB.

    Absolutely. It may be a great playing and sounding modern instrument. It’s value is determined in large part by its age/provenance so...

    I'm not an expert, I must stress. I'm just opinionated!

  9. Neil Pye liked Stein O's post in the thread Trying to determine age of a DB.

    This is indeed helpfull! Seeking expert help makes me decide what I will eventually offer for the bass, if it comes to that :)

    I've always struggled with self-esteem, and I think it was really only after my Diploma (ARCM) recital in 1986 that I started to believe...

    I sort of do, yes. I may be wrong, but... What age does the seller claim?

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but my guess is that I have milk older than that bass. I would think it's been "aged" to try to add...
