    Judging by the inlay that was an upmarket ovation. Are you converting it to a bass? Headless conversion? Or do you just not get the whole "show your basses" part if this thread? :smug:

    It's a 6 string contraalto acoustic bass guitar. 6SCABG for short.

    Looks like you are developing a new season technique involving roasting the maple little by little. :D

  9. My 3 part post was my attempt to show empathy for broken heads by careless people.

    72 Custom Balladeer with a story none could make up.

    And sorry not a bass. Will never post or anything about this again.

    I think he was speaking in jest. Your response above seems to indicate you didn't feel that way. Don't worry about it, there is no guitar without bass (strings). ;)

    If someone were to post pure guitar and no bass, that might be a bit of a derailment, but c'mon, your profile name has BASS in it!

    I subscribe to the Davie504 school of:
    If it Slapp
    If it Piccc
    If it Tapppppp

    Then it {B}ass!!!


    (if you don't know who Davie504 is, he's a youtuber that clowns around but is *very* capable on bass when he wants to be...)

  13. I goofed the edit of the first post trying to add the pictures which I goofed on and then goofed the edit of that edit.

    No insult taken. I would have to care about it first. If you looked up at the post quoted you would have seen I liked the post.

    I have remind myself to use to use these cartoon thingys which remind me of the little hearts girls used to dot their "i" with.:)

    Besides my comments can often be "tongue in cheek", which they don't have here. My phone does but it don't transfer with post.

    All is good. even with emojis, there can be a lot misunderstood and/or lost in translation with printed text. There was a thread a couple weeks back where someone said they didn't like how rude and snarky people were getting on TB, to which I wondered:

    1) are there *more* polite forums than TB? I've not encountered them.
    2) did something get lost in translation somewhere and whatever happened was born from a misunderstanding...?

    Hah! I don't think you need worry about that! Many of those Japanese short-scale basses were all made at the same factory anyway and the same basses were badged with a few different names/brands. But judging that you have a couple, you probably already know that! :)

    Well, it looks like a J.., but with double buckers, what does it sound like? (is it active or passive?)
