Hi folks, First of all, this is my first official post (on the BG side) as a supporting member. I've been reading the site for a long time, but finally got off my butt and sent in some cash. So, now that I've paid my due, I wanted to ask a few things. To begin with, I'm keeping my Thunderbass (from a post in my earlier, freeloading, "registered user" days ), and am going to send it back to the factory soon to have the electronics fixed. I was playing sans amp tonight, and was wondering how you all go about getting those unreachable bits of jibby-dust things out of those "hard-to-reach" places in your bridges...q-tips? Compressed air? Caring wife? Next, on string spacing: I've been playing a 5 string Warwick bolt-on for the past year, and the 19mm spacing on the Pedulla just seems way too wide now. The Warwick seems pretty wide too, come to think of it. So, when I say "tight string spacing on a 6-string," what basses pop into your head? Just Wednesday night curiousities. Again, pleased to make all of your acquaintances!
