I thought I felt a tremor yesterday when I was in Canoga Park....
Thanks. Could be the store it was in. Maybe someone left snowcone juice or something on the neck. I only have one other guitar with high gloss poly on the neck, a 7ender, and it’s fine. I didn’t study the bridge all that closely, but it sounds promising. Tuners seem to be one way manufacturers are cutting costs, but I couldn’t tell about those. Like I say, I’ll be getting one for sure now that I’ve played one.
Only seem to get out your way at Christmas; my brother lives in Dos Vientos by Newberry Park. Was close yesterday though. Maybe I can take you up on your offer one of these days, although I’ll likely pull the trigger before I have time to get out there.
Love the R40-used it Tuesday night for concert band rehearsal. Also for the performances. And will be using it for a country club gig Saturday. It's just that the Kasino is sitting there, plugged in, ready to roar as soon as I connect a bass.
I drove 18 wheelers for 23 years. I have no idea how many times I jumped down from the 4' high floor of the trailer(s). My knees know.
I've always liked the look and feel and sound of the T bird but, aren't they neck heavy? Last thing I need to do is wrestle with my bass .
yes they have neck dive issues.
And the myth continues.
They have to be slung lower than many basses. Do that and you'll love it(see pic in avatar)
...and use a grippy strap in the 3" width range.
not a myth on my basses. and yes if slung low and played with a pick it is more of a non issue. I dont do either. also non reverse is much better.....
Salami. Horse makes for good salami. I found that out while living in Norway. Horse salami sandwiches became a staple, since I didn't have refrigeration where I was staying.
Looking great! Is there any significance to the fact that you are between two women and in front of a dumpster in the picture? Just gotta ask because it's the kind of question that has to be asked around here.
I have been told by a 70 year old colleague that spending time in the gym and being healthy in your 50s means you won't hate yourself in your 60s. I'm less than a year behind you, and hope to be able to rock to the finish line as well.
We had a name for all cold cuts in the Navy. First word was"horse"..........
Whippersnappers! Hmph!(GOF sound) 74 in August.
I have not had any issues with neck dive from Thunderbirds with the exception of bolt-on Epiphones. That issue gets solved by moving the upper pin to the heel of the neck. I find that they balance where you put them, unlike other bass shapes that won't let you rotate the neck up. The most neck dive I get from a bass guitar is my Precision, ironically enough. I had a Ric that wanted to be horizontal all the time. No neck dive, but it wouldn't let me move the neck up at all, either. As I understand it, there are Thunderbirds that dive badly. I just haven't played one yet.
My understanding is that a '76, like the one I assume your signature mentions, has the pin on the vestigial upper bout and also has a larger headstock. I'm sure it has some neck dive, especially if the pin is not at the heel of the neck.
I find that I wrestle with Thunderbirds less than other bass guitars. They work well for some people, not others. Try one and if it chooses you, you will know.
That is a big change in hue. It gives it a color that screams vintage and is not a color that Gibson would match in some sort of vintage reissue. This reminds me of a batch of Gibson silverbursts. Most of them retained their color but one batch yellowed really badly, with a result that did not look anything as nice as yours. Because of the metallic paint, they turned into pissbursts.
Never had a problem with mine
I just realized, if I got Inverness Green it would(almost)match my Aerostar.
Then I'd only hafta repaint My Safari
Sunburst to match my 67 NR
Because even God can’t hit a 2 iron.
