    Yep! A couple of weeks and Joe Naylor & Co. repaired my baby that slipped off its strap. Looks like new; it has never played better and they fixed a ding in the (maple) fretboard also. All for very modest bucks, I might add. Everyone looking for a modestly priced incredible sounding bass should check out the Reverends! These things ROCK! Very fine customer service too.

    p.s. Yes, it has Straplocks now!

    Schaller. I hope these are relatively goof-proof! I'll get some Loc-Tite tomorrow to make SURE...
     
  5. Congrats, man! Glad your bass is fixed and good as new.
     
  6. Dropping Bass bad.

    I almost dropped mine the first time I pluged it in due to not having them. Playing at "Mister Rockstar" and thumbing down hard across the strings the strap came off at the Bridge.
    Luckily I cought it at the nut with my left hand.

    Unluckily it pendulemed back into me and hit me.......well lets just say it was a Low Blow.

    Got strap locks the next day.

    I had the chance today to try out a Reverend. Very cool sounding basses! I loved the way they played, I really like the way the slanted pups felt too. I wish they had more tone shaping controls on the bass itself and a three way pup selector though.
     
  8. IM GETTING A REVEREND SOON!! WOOHOO!
     
  9. welcome back to the club, petch! :D

    I'm dying to try the Reverend Brad Houser model. I mentioned this to the local Reverend dealer, and they said they might order one. Sadly, they had no Reverend basses of any kind in stock (only a couple of geetars).
     
  11. Congrats. Glad your back in business again. That was fast!

    I heard Rumblefish is coming out with a new 'parachute' option to avoid these problems in the future. :D
     
  12. are you by any chance speaking of Garrett Park Guitars in Annapolis? that's where i ordered mine from, because it was closest to me (but still quite a hike) so i never actually went there, just had them ship it. you're lucky to live near a reverend dealer. i'd really like to try a brad houser myself. and if my band ever hits it big, i plan to commission the first fretless rumblefish. :D

    Yep, Garrett Park Guitars is the place. I stop by there every so often, but have never seen a Reverend bass in stock. It's time to stop by again and do some more arm-twisting.

    Fretless Rumblefish: if these basses sound like I think they do, that should be awesome. :cool:
     
  14. That was alot faster than I thought it would be. Great its working again:)
    BTW, what does everyone mean they're hard to pick w/?? I can't imagin how that would be uncomfortable to do.
     
  15. there's no contour where your arm touches the body, like there is on most basses. kinda like a telecaster guitar. at first i found this annoying but now i really don't mind (although i might if i used a pick for the entire set).

    Dancehallclasher has it right- you get used to the body shape. I still think its forte is as a fingerstyle axe, though...

    I'm really glad to see so many people excited about the Reverend basses! I have a 4 and 5 and they compare very favorably to the "boutique" basses I have.

    Ya gotta love the NECK!, love the weight, love the sound(even unplugged) and love the price!

    As long as you can get over the "non-traditional" look, it's the best kept bass secret. Joe's a great guy also!

    Think about it. With a laminate finish, you literally have probably 1,000's of choices on finishes (including different textures and materials!).

    I would love to see some "exotic wood" laminate versions available. Ya gotta love it, a wood look with the strength of your countertop!

    I would also like to see some choices in pickguards (that's the fun of having a pickguard - being able to change it occasionally or if it gets too scratched up!

    Great stuff!
     
  18. I tried a Rumblefish the other day, I love it, the look, the sound and everything. It's now the second my list over basses that I'm going to get... someday. The other one's a Rick so I'm very impressed.
