Hello from Instagram lol
This bass is killer. Love the aesthetic
Thanks! It was a long time coming
Supposedly the Anodized parts for my guitar and bass twins came back for EGC and should be shipping this week.
Haha just noticed, what look like, d10’s (?). Awesome!
Look up Opposed Action Initiative, he makes them!
The EGC twins are here.
After Spending a week with them, here are my thoughts:
They are heavy, but not unbearably so.
I want to switch out the tuners on the bass, the black ones don't match the rest of the hardware, if the Bridge, strap buttons and p/u covers were black I'd be into it but the mismatch bugs me. I'm checking to see what they used so I can make the switch to some chrome ones. They are some model of Schaller instead of the Gotoh ones i was invoiced with. the mounting point and screw location appears to be the same though.
the action is a little lower than i was anticipating (this is a good thing) so I need thicker strings on the bass, a 105 on the E is fine but 45-85 on the others is a touch too light and I'm getting a little more buzz than usual. I will try a 50-105 set.
Tonally I'm super happy, push pulls on the tone knobs for coil tapping offer a lot of variety. I've been able to get passable Jazz and P-bass inspired sounds with an aluminum twist.
TLDR: I'm a happy camper with one cosmetic nitpick.
Looks like a GREAT pair. I feel you on the tuning key swap, though I’d probably keep them black if the body were clear anodized. Good call on the slightly heavier strings as well. These necks seem to thrive with heavier tensions.
My weird cat really loves uncomfortably loud bass nights. lol
My cats love my amps, when they are off.
Just found this thread!
Here’s a DMZ6000 I picked up recently, always regretted selling a XL-9(avatar)I owned back in ‘81.
my Kramer family and Sunn family and the Roads
Finally I have my DMZ 6000B, it has been on my mind and bucket list for 40 years.
It’s in good hands with Dave!
Player her again last night .. It is a monster in every way .. slaps and pops like a champ too.
I knew that it could, there’s a lot of 70’s and 80’s funk that this bass has the perfect sound for, stuff I cut my teeth on!
Yup great funker and it is totally the sound I knew it had, very different from all my others. I love the pre amp but many replace it with something more modern, no way for me it rocks. Vintage Di Marzio's sound great.
Selling my OG Rusty Box (actually, just sold it lol) but this was a fun night.
+1 on the vintage DiMarzios— I’m saving a set of old PAF Model P’s for my aluminum necked Precision build.
