    well, since i got a new bass this past weekend, i figured i'd put up my first familly pics. :D the new one is the dark one next to my doubleneck.

    now all i need is the 8 string fretted and the hollowbody. geeze, i wish bill would hurry up already :(.
     
  2. Damn John :eek:! I bet all those basses together cost more than my house! The new one looks sweet though, but it's nothin compared to my MIA Fender :rolleyes:
     
  3. Mr. Turner.. :eek: I've got a question.. Umm.. how big are your hands?? I still don't understand how you can play all those strings.. The fretboard at the nut must be atleast as wide as the fretboard at the body joint on my 4 strings. :eek: :rolleyes: :eek:

    But.. damn.. those all look REALLY nice! is that your house in the background? :rolleyes: I cannot see past all that recording equipment :eek:

    Oh yeah, and nice cat too :p

  4. Anybody else around here wonderin' why we can't find a decent stand, strings, cables or wood for our projects!!!

    It's all over at John's house. I think CNN reported a slight shift in the earths axis last week. What do you know about that JT?? :crossed arms, tapping foot:

    You mind me askin' what is the financial engine that supports this habit? (and is sending Bill's kids thru college)

    Whatever it is, it's what I wanna be when I grow up...

    hwk2 - my hands are actually pretty small - my middle finger is about 3" long from tip to where it joins my palm, and my pinkie is only 2" long. i've found that holding the bass at about a 45 degree angle, and keeping my wrist only slightly bent, i'm able to reach everything i need to, by moving my elbow forward and back.

    hammy - pleading the 5th :eek: :D

    eli - just the occasional web development job ($40 - $60 an hour). nothing fancy. then again, you should see my car. :eek:

    And to think that my parents COMPLAIN about me being on this bloody thing all the time. =) Here you are getting paid $40-$60 an hour for web development. I'm gonna quote you on that okay? =)
     
  10. JT: Here's a stumper...which one is your fav? :) Conklin calls those "melted tops", right? Great linup, man! <p>
    BTW, Do those cats have claws? I caught mine trying to use my SWR cab as a scratching post! I came close to skinning that cat!

    actually, dude, if you get microsoft certified and sun certified in java/javascript, you can pull upwards of $75 an hour easy, with asp development and such, depending on where you are.

    i almost forgot. NO 4 stringers? One of the local shops has one. perhaps I will try it next time i am there.
     
  18. "now all i need is the 8 string fretted and the hollowbody. geeze, i wish bill would hurry up already"

    hmm... maybe bill´s afraid of what will happen if he makes you 2 more basses! you could use them to start World War 3!!

    :D

    John, nice fam!!
    Love the two tone fretboard on your 8!

    Honestly your hands are that small???!!
    Don't worry, no forthcoming jokes.;)

    I guess I don't have any excuses to try one now!
    Thanx!!:mad:
    Just when I was ready to purchase a MIA Jazz fretless.
