    Does that aluminum strip across the top of the body make it more comfortable? My only complaint with my Reverends is the right angle there, it cuts into my forearm when I play. I'm thinking about some sort of pad there to deal with it.

    It definitely helps. I've had no problems with my forearm thanks to that strip being there. The edge without it is fairly sharp. I also find that playing while sitting down and wearing shorts is not the most comfortable because of the edge on the back cutting into my leg. However, I've got many other basses that I can play while sitting down and wearing shorts.

    In case anyone was wondering the Bugeyes aren't actually "metal tops", just chrome plating over a plastic-like, or fibrous sheeting. Mucho cool kitsch factor, regardless! :thumbsup:

    It does help, I have three slabs and I have to play them a little different than my other basses, but I can play the Rumblefish fine! You can add the banjo arm piece, Reverend still sells them. I would give one a try, if you don't like it, it will give you a frame to attach a more padded arm piece. Take care.

    What strings come on Reverend Basses from the factory? (2018 Thundergun) I looked on their site did not see any listed. Thanks

    If they are installed at the factory in Korea then they are no name brand strings. If they need to change them at Reverend HQ, they use SIT strings.

    Here I am rocking the old Rumblefish last night. Man, this thing sounds good! In some ways it's the best "Jazz" bass I own. This is a model that Reverend should reissue.

    1. 2.

  10. Hey folks!
    Now that I have had my Triad a few months, I think I have certainly come to favor the neck and middle pickup position (not sure if that's pos. 2 or 4, does numbering start at the neck or bridge?); it is for sure my "go to" sound for me. Runner up is the bridge only position (1 or 5?). I use Sunbeams and play mainly classic and hard rock.

    I am curious what other Triad owners have decided on as their "favorite" pickup position.

    *I edited that last line to avoid crude jokes :thumbsup:

  11. Well. Nevermind then. :thumbsup::cool:

    (I'm just kidding. I know there are not a lot of these out in the wild yet ........)

    And I think I found one of the answers to one of my questions; numbering starts from the neck -- So I love position #2.

    Mine are 3 and 5 (if 1 is the neck), but I use pretty much every position for one tune or another. 3 and 5 are the classic P and MM tones, to me, so they get used a lot. 2 and 4 are great for fat and smooth tones, like jazzy, walking lines.

    Wow these look like nice basses, so they do short scale? What is the string spacing like?

    The long scales are all 19mm.
    They have two shorties, the Watt Plower and the Dub King. DK is also 19mm, but the WP is very narrow. I don't know how narrow exactly, but in one of the videos they mention that Mike Watt requested narrow string spacing.

  18. Awesome descriptions of the tone! Now I see why I enjoy 2 and 5 so much.
    Thank you for sharing!

    The jazz bomb is a great pickup, I solo on that a lot. With the P behind it (on the Fatfish) the tones are stellar

    Is there an appropriate hard case that fits the Dub King? Thank you in advance
