    Hummm. No, I can't and shouldn't. Why is there always something to bring about interest for musicians?

    For the record, I no longer own that truck thank you. And it worked just as intended. Have any idea how many construction workers I got in it?

    Since I fell 1,100 posts behind, I don’t think I’ll be playing catch up, BUT I did just get this in the mail today!

    a new neck from Carlo with more of a J bass profile! My Cataldo NR-41 currently has a 1.75” nut width and I’ve grown to prefer 1.5”. Pretty excited! He also threw in a t-shirt :)

    Is it normal to have a slant. I thought it may be sitting on one of the wires underneath?

    I'm pretty sure the pickups on all my Thunderbirds slant one way or another. I don't think about it. Problem solved!

    As long as you are getting a signal, I wouldn't worry about it. The bass sure looks the business. Welcome!

    Nice playing; your tone fits the song well. And her voice is, as you know, awesome.

    :) Thanks! That's my Custom Kraft hollow-body, pick/palm muting. I used it because of this live performance of Dusty - the BL is the bass player, (to her left) playing a hollow-body. Yes, Kirstin is a superstar - to us anyway!

    It may just be the way the foam underneath has settled. I don't think you need to worry.

  14. If the pickups are parallel to the strings, everything is fine. Mine all slope.

    I'm deeply saddened to hear of Mike's passing, he was the nicest guy and an incredible luthier. He did all my work, set ups, built me a beautiful Thunderbird, knocked it out of the park.
