    Hey I have an Excalibur bass. I'm not sure the model or anything. has anyone else ever heard of them? Mine has a thru neck construction, with 2 big soapbar pickups. The neck is made of some light wood with dark wood thru the middle. it looks sharp. So if anyone knows anything about these basses.........

    Not necessarily - I've done it many times. So take photos on an ordinary SLR camera and then ask for a Kodak Photo CD when they process the film. I have lots of Photo CDs but no digital camera or scanner!:p

  7. It's simple really. Your bass, like about 2 million others every year, are made overseas in one of several dozen factories that exclusively make instruments for overseas clients. Some companies create designs themselves while others work strictly from client submissions. Anyone can hire these factories to make instruments and have their own name put on them. This is how basses like the Essex, Johnson, Rogue, and lots of others are made. Samick, under their name and others, make a large portion of the low end guitars and some of the medium range instruments sold worldwide. Now, to do this usually requires orders totalling up to container loads of units but they can be had very cheap (per piece). Because of this system, you will find the same instrument labeled differently from different companies. This particular one looks like a Copeley but then again, a Copeley looks like several others that are out there.

    Errr..... I look at the prints which are in the same box with the disc - or I could even - put it in my computer and view them as a slide show, thumbnails or individually for editing etc. etc.


    Now is it just me, or was that a really stoopid question!!?? :confused:

    Bruce - why was it stupid? Because he doesn't know? Maybe he doesn't have any experience with digital cameras/film technology.

    Give the guy a break.
     
  12. Q: How do you know which songs are on each audio CD?













    A: You write the titles!

    But the whole point was about avoiding digital cameras and technology - could anybody honestly think that Kodak are going to provide you with blank CDs?? How would that be a good service - how would they keep going and what good would they be if you couldn't look at them? :confused:

    Nope - it was a stoopid question!
     
  14. :mad: i have had experience with digital cameras. :mad:
