So instead of tuning down, you spin your truss rod?
Are you pre leaking info for Hipshot? I'm pretty sure they have a one lever prototype that does exactly that.
I think i'd be worried that it wouldn't come back up to tune. To many things to catch on.
If you can bend down to D by pushing against the neck then your neck sucks.
Anyone do the whammy bar and duck tape method?
No? Just me then?
How is that supposed to work?
Is this a joke?
dude... don't do it... it's not worth it
I use firecrackers. Just pop one between the string you want detuned and fretboard - light it, hold the cracker out away from your face, POP! bring it back, and play. Perfect everytime!
That's a great idea. Better than what I've been doing.
You mean like Jaco use to do (to get a whammy bar type effect)?
Wow too much effort to TURN THE TUNING KEY.
Instead I will bend the neck, ruin the action and intonation.
Here is the earliest prototype, and the response from the player to its inadequate response
I just use small pliers and snip a wrap off the string (precisely ) while playing
Its like the other dude wanted to save it while it still had a neck I did ;-)
i just 'imagine' a new tuning and project my thoughts into the bass and it works wonders.
This has to be a joke....
I do on guitar, but not on bass.
After seeing that, I can't imagine why Music Man thought a 6-bolt neck joint was necessary. Incredible how the lower bout comes away yet the neck joint seems to stay intact. I remember seeing a similar (somewhat more theatrical) scene courtesy of The Meat Puppets at the Marquee in London in the '80's - the precision really can take a pounding.
Nah, that was a "Timex" bass. It takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.
