    Thanks. Very psyched: my new band has our first gig tonight and I'll be going out there with my new (used) T-bird slung low and loud.

    I've been a P-bass guy for the last 5 years - held it a little lower than Pino. In practicing with the T-bird the last few nights, I've sunk it lower and lower. It HAS to be low - Nikki Sixx level, like a piece of heavy artillery.
     
  5. Sorry for the late reply buddy been busy with college, but yeah mines does neck dive also. I've not been using her much as she needs the frets crowned and levelled, but I am going to get some light weight tuners put on her soon to help hopefully, also wanting a new bridge which I can adjust the strings individually for my ideal set up :D

    No worries about the late reply. Knowledge is power! I'm glad i don't have to change the bridge cause action is perfect now thanks to having leveled and crowned frets (done by me). Maybe in the future with another thunderbird. Best of luck with your bass man. Hope it becomes a great player to your liking. Are you just swapping the tuners because of neck dive and asthetics, or because your tuners dont keep tune? Just a curious questions since mine hold tune pretty good.
     
  7. Just got this killer Cataldo NR4, neck-thru and ebony fingerboard, from builder Carlo Patti....So light and well-balance and HUGE sound...This is a sorta' hybrid' T-Bird/EB-0 and it works! .Thanks, Carlo!

    Nice! I think the Rev he does is cool too, just needs a reverse headstock IMO.

    that colour!!!! LOVE IT!!!

    Any comment about the new Nikki Sixx bass? I´m a big fan of him and I was wondering if any of you were able to test it for real.

    I don´t like the sound of Jazz bass//precision but maybe it is different.

    Here in argentina, it is impossible to buy//test :(


    cheers!

  11. My new Mike Lull NRT4 has been ordered just in time to avoid the 2014 price increase. Now just have to way 12-16 weeks for that bad boy.

    Good story coming about my new used T-bird (first gig last night with it). Anyway ... I need to replace the screws on her pickups - rusty. What size do I need? Can I get them at Home Depot?
     
  15. Pickup screws van be tricky to get the exact ones, go to StewMac, quick shipping and good price.

    Cool. Thanks. I took one out and am gonna check at HD, but I have low expectations. Thanks again.
     

  17. Save your time and gas, they won't have anything smaller than a #6 machine thread in very limited styles. I second the StewMac suggestion.

    IMO & IME Home Depot/Lowes is NOT where one wants to buy hardware for a for a precision instrument. StewMac or the manufacturer's CS should yield you much better results. That's just me - the right tool or part for the job ;)

    Agreed. Thx
     
  20. I have a 50 and over hockey tourney in Spokane the same weekend as the Seattle GTG. I will just come over and fondle one in Mike's shop or at BassNW if I need a fix. I could also just practice more on the M4V while I am waiting.:bassist:
