  1. I'm glad someone got the reference.
     
  2. Canoga park always makes me think of Joe's Garage.

  4. The one time that I was playing a P bass, my car got broken into. I haven't played a P bass since and my car hasn't been broken into. P basses cause cars to be broken into.

    Everyone knows that playing with a pick cures neck dive :rollno:
     
  5. And shouldn't the dumpster be on fire? :laugh:
     
  6. But, when you were 28, @godofthunder59 was only half your age. Now he is more than 4/5 your age. He is catching up!

    I like the unedited version better. Just a fact.
     
  8. My left or yours?
     
  9. Very few of them have enough to matter. As others note, adjust height or angle to suit. I suppose if your left hand is never touching the neck you might notice enough to matter (more than others), but that's a silly way to play bass.
    I will note that both of mine have the neck strap button on the back rather than the upper body.

    All done for this weekend. Long process but its great. 20190612_134037. 20190612_134024. 20190612_134046. 20190612_134007. 20190612_133500. 20190612_134021.
     
  11. That looks fantastic. Curious about the decision for gold hardware.
     
  12. It would be seriously awkward if my left hand were touching the neck.

  15. Gorgeous! Very cool mix of gold and black, too. I would probably not have thought of that.
     
  16. So you choose silly just because you're left-handed?

    (Being silly, of course. I had an explanatory smart-aleck remark but it could have been construed as political, so I removed it.)

    Black is always bad ass but gold adds class with the right color

  18. I totally agree. I've just gotten used to thinking of basses as having either gold, chrome, nickel, or black. The occasional bass I see with black and nickel or chrome hasn't done it for me. This does. I appreciate it both for what it is, and for destroying that box I was thinking in. Boxes suck. Thankfully they only exist if you believe in them. That sort of boxes, anyway.

    He should have changed his name from Roy to Rod...
     
  20. I'm pretty good at mathing. Based in how fast @godofthunder59 is catching up to @GonePlaid , Scott will be the elder in a decade or so.
