    Yes that’s how it’s used now although I think the original meaning means to be tired from sexual activity, though this might be an urban myth.

    Now I’m hoping nobody had sex with my bass

    I've trained the animals on the Smith to keep the bass in tune for me, which is great. But that Racoon is just vile. The only reason I'm using flats is so I don't have to change strings/go near him ever again!

    Can you get them to sing the high harmony parts?

    One step at a time - the frog is desperate to play synths and the fox thinks he's a drummer. I spend more time arguing with my headstock than I do playing bass these days

    That there is a player - nothing fussy or prissy about it: that bass exists to WORK.

  13. In Australia there is another meaning. If you are male, the place you are least likely to want to be kicked is the knackers, if you get my drift.
    The term does also exist for being worn out as well.

    Here’s a pic of it with its sister. It’s just come back from my tech who has fully shielded it with conductive paint and added some more ground points, so it’s whisper quiet now.

    And here’s a little jam I just made (ignore the frequent mistakes, I was making it up on the fly and I’m useless)

    Damn, this is the coolest. I love the mojo and even the raccoon =0) I'm always on the lookout for a great old beater like this.

    Radio knobs.
    Simple, yet fitting change.
    Really suits that old bass.
