  1. Just collected my Rumour 4 from Bernie Goodfellow of GB Basses. Finish is red/black Wicca over a quilted maple veneer. Plays like a dream, sounds like heaven!!

    Very nice!
    I just got off the phone with Bernie and he's going to e-mail me a couple pictures of the maple top he picked out for my 5-string Spitfire, which should be done in a month.

    The Rumour models are beautiful and yours is no exception. Enjoy!!
  7. I used to have a Rumour 5-string (with a few custom alterations, slightly different body and headstock shape, etc) and it was a lovely bass. The only thing was, the longer I owned it, there were some little things about it that began to niggle me, such as the neck's dead spots becoming more apparent, and the fact that the sound was kinda hard to put into a mix for the style of music I play.

    Full respect to Bernie for his instruments, I guess they just weren't for me... :(

    Unbelievably happy with my new Sei Bass at the moment... I still need to post pics of it! :D
