speaking of mahogany...my buddy's new Taylor..
Our family ancester came over in 1692 after being given a choice: rope or boat. Lucky for my bandmates, he chose the boat. I also recently learned we share the same given name and surname, so I'm currently shopping boats, just to be on the safe side. As for Parisians, I dated one living in Montreal for about a year eons ago, so... yeah.
A SSS6SAB (Short Scale, Skinny 6-String, Acoustic Bass). Pronounced, "Ssssix-sab". Starts with a hiss.
And a gorgeous one, at that.
I'm never quite sure how to respond. Thanks for thanking me ? Nah. I usually say it was my honor.
To my eye BMM is basically a pink variant. I already have one of those...
Plays like butter and was my go to bass for performances during Breast Cancer Awareness month.
cause you’re cool.
I used the ‘bump’ the first couple times, but not sure it did anything...you can slightly edit the ad every few days, drop asking price by a small amount, etc., and that bumps it
The romance languages are like that, those derived from Latin. I think Italian may be the worse offender of separate dialects by region. Growing up bilingually it could be said that I was actually tri-lingual since my parents came from two very distinct regions of Italy. My mom was a northerner and she spoke the National language, Tuscan. My dad was from the area around Naples and he spoke his regional dialect with all of his "people" from that region but spoke Tuscan in our home unless he slipped into the dialect to be funny. I heard enough of both to become proficient in both and learned both before ever learning English even though I was born in the US.
I have some funny memories around the two versions of Italian I was subjected to with my mom laughing and rolling her eyes when my dad would speak his dialect around his people and she would exclaim, "What kind of Arabic are you speaking." It was meant to be funny and not mean and it still makes me laugh.
Here's an example of how far apart the two languages could be:
English: Turn on the light.
Tuscan: Accendi la luce. Proper Italian spoken as, "Ah chen dee lah loo sheh."
Regional Dialect: Ah peach ah loosh. No real spelling to speak of but it sounds like I wrote it.
I'm happy to know Tuscan and somewhat know the other though I'd have a hard time getting along in Southern Italy with only their dialect to rely on.
8 Facts About the Italian Language — CORE Languages
With grade school educations becoming the norm post-WW2, the National language is spoken and understood everywhere in Italy but the dialects persist.
Just know that your service is greatly appreciated - by many, and those who don't are unappreciative morons.
That'll get attention EVERY time. NICE!
Morning fellow bird-lovers... what was the T-bird thread doing on page 2??? Anyway, check this out. Don't have any info on it but it looks very interesting - most likely a new relic'd II to my eyes. The bridge is not original (original's narrower and wouldn't allow for correct intonation), the pg is not original (tug-bar holes are in the wrong place, bird too high up on the pg), but.., the body looks legit judging its edge-contours - especially at the bottom edge into the center piece. Looks exactly like my '64 II. And the Gibson Gold would have been a very, very rare one-off custom color if it's legit. It also has the correct black spacer under the pu and the knobs 'look' original.
That is one good looking bass. I don’t care for the bridge (complaint about a Thunderbird’s bridge? YOU DON’T SAY!), but that finish is really, really lovely.
Had my new Epi T-Bird CP for a couple days now...set it up and I've gotta say, I'm underwhelmed. Everything about the fit and finish is just meh. If I weren't pretty much just using it for a practice bass to keep in my classroom (I teach middle school aka the "hormonally challenged"), I'd be returning / selling it. My #1 is a 2019 Gibson T-Bird, which I love, and the Epi CP makes for a good practice bass as it's the same size / shape / pups. If you're ever wondering if the Gibson is worth the money...it is! I'm surprised how much I've come to love the feel of a nitro finish.
I had an Epi VP (sold it to Miles...he should get it today?), which is much nicer than the CP as well. Not having second thoughts about selling the VP, as I don't worry about keeping the CP in my classroom, and I might worry about leaving the nicer VP there (the room is locked up after hours, but still...).
"Locks keep honest people honest".
Switched back to the stock white pickguard and black tophat knobs...like that look better after all...
True. And fences make for better neighbors.
I totally get it. My CP sounds like my 2013 Gibson TBird but it no way feels like it. Nothing has ever felt as good to me as my Gibson TBird IV.
I love it. So much of my childhood has this music as the soundtrack. Thanks, Chucky!
