    I hope you got a great deal on that bass because you are sure working hard promoting it here on TB.

  4. With all due respect:
    You love it so much that your nickname is the name of the product?
    Have you done something else here than promoting this instrument?

    Regards,
    François
     
  5. I meant contribution.
     
  6. I'm definitely interested to read what you've written about strings on EUBs.
    Where are these posts please?

    But, as far as I can tell, you've joined TB only nine days ago, taken the name of an instrument that the promotion seems to have been your main activity, so, forgive me, but that looks quite commercial to me.
    I think you should read this: Commercial User Policy (CUP) | TalkBass.com
    And in particular the section about non-acceptable posting behaviour.

    That said, welcome aboard, M.TravelBass.
    It'd be nice to state your real name as well, if that's possible.

    Regards,
    François

    A previous post on TB referred to your endorsement. It seems to be gone now. My mistake?

    I, too, saw the post about you being named an endorser. It appeared on the same day as several other posts of yours, which also gushed about your (revolutionary, best-ever) traveling bass.

    My impression of your bass was that it was a nice EUB, inspired by many other hollow body "stick" basses, very much like an Azola or Eminence, but hardly new, revolutionary or the first hollow EUB we have ever seen.

    I too, felt you were on the verge of being "commercial", and your chosen name being co-incident with the product name of your bass re-inforced that impression. After reading those first three posts I thought "spoken like a paid endorser".

    So, enough about your bass, OK? You profited from your relationship with TravelBass, and you are trying to pay for it here, with your frequent mentions of its superiority, whether or not you realize it.

    If not in direct violation of Talkbass commercial policy, your postings would seem to be at odds with the spirit of those policies and the general non-commercial flavor of Talkbass.

    Looking for a Lightning Bug. Let me know if any of you are looking to sell one or are interested in trading for an Eminence.

    Hey all, I just picked up a used Lightning Bug, and I was sliding the bridge to put the scale length at true 41" and noticed that there are screws under the bridge used as a placement reference... Not unlike the nipple underneath the bridge on an Ampeg BB. Is this stock? It also seemed like there was some kind of adhesive under the bridge foot.

    He is on TB. He posted on the EB side about it. I'd say its not too high considering how rare it is that a Bug II comes up for sale.

    No screws or adhesive under mine.

    I think this was a trait on early bud and lightning bug basses... my bug bass had those studs under the bridge feet.

    Is there an earlier version of the bug bass that was made with a Babybass transducer? Pics?

    It was an option on customs, I believe. Quite rare.
