  5. LOL!! I believe there's "jack" missing from that, but ya never know.

    edit---Forget Ass the movie, I just noticed the movie on top of it: Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back!!! YEAH! Glad to see there's at least one other Kevin Smith fan in here!
    "*** is the internet?"
     
  6. That Warwick 6'er is dead sexy, but not nearly as much as the custom! WOW!

    As for "ass the movie", "Jack" is missing from the photo, but it's much funnier this way!

    And Kevin Smith f'n ROCKS! Jersey Girl, however, was dissappointing.......:oops:

    My wife and I are hopefully planning a trip to NJ to have a "Jersey trilogy" tour. :D

    Oh, and yes, the bass sounds awesome...............;)

    One of these basses cost less than the strings for the other

  10. Yeah, Jersey Girl kinda sucked. Not really THAT bad of a movie, but terrible compared to his previous work.

    I live in NY, about 40 minutes from that area of Jersey. I don't know why I haven't made the pilgremidge myself. I plan on doing it sometime.

    Oh and one more thing....did you know he's making a Clerks 2 :hyper: :hyper:



    @ pklima--That double-neck, it looks like it's strung up for a righty....and both necks look identical. What's the point in having 2 of the same neck? Or am I missing something?

    One neck's tuned in fourths (standard) and the other in fifths. That neck also has the pickup moved a little closer to the bridge to get better clarity out of the C string.

    The tripleneck is tuned: E, BE, CGD. The DB is tuned standard. And I play everything lefty-strung-righty.
     
  12. OK....so do you still play it left handed, just with the strings backwards? Or do you just play a lefty bass backwards, Hendrix style?

    Friends used to call me the dyslexic( spelling) bass player . LOL!! I'm right handed but bass is the only thing I do left handed.Been like that for over 20 years and always worked, so I quess I was doin something right. LOL!!

    Ass the movie - wonder if Cartman is gonna let butters watch that one. LOL!!
     
  16. That's really weird. I never heard of someone playing like that. I assume you learned like that from the beginning? I can't imagine trying to learn that now after having played normally for so long.

    That's subjective, I think. :p

    Here's my Squier and my Status whose grain is impossible to capture with my lacking photography skills

    Actually, take a look a few posts above:

    Yeah, learned that way from the beginning. I can make reasonable noise on a lefty-strung bass, though.
