It's not my style. BUT... who here is bothered that there is a real lack of interest in the Luthier forum? Was there ever a "review" section? There really should be? ya think? I like a variety of forums as much as the next guy...but when it's the off topic section that gets the most hits and posts, it shows a decline in the effectiveness of a message board as a whole. If you're serious about bass, you should want to know how the thing works. Not whether it's right to use a pick. You should want to know WHY a truss rod works the way it does, and not ask other people what strings to put on YOUR bass. And idea of how to actually solder your own pickups in your bass, or how to properly shield it is EXPONENTIALLY better than "what's a better bass for Rock and Roll, P or J"? Maybe I'm having a bad day, but I just want more for Talk Bass. I am relatively new here, and like this place, but I see it getting more and more just like any other bulletin board... this one being a chatroom with a bass problem. I know I'll get the obligatory "you don't like it? Get out" responses, but ask yourself if that's really what you want, or if you want something better. Just a thought people. Concur or flame me, it's fine, I just want this to be a contructive resourse.
