    Heck with sittin on the floor, strap one of these babies on and rock it!

    LOL - I figure I'm good enough as is for now, mostly cosmetic wear and tear, still have all my original parts, and they even function as designed. If necessary, refins are pretty popular here in SoCal, plastic surgeons everywhere, LA should be called Silicone Valley.

  6. Ace fought the inclusion of New York Groove, a cover on his solo album and it turned out to be the highest charting song on any of the four solo albums released that year. I absolutely love the song and crank it up each and every time it's played.

    I would deeply offend the other Birds as they would be thinking "why is this guy flogging a family member!"

    It's already sold - looked at his website and he makes primarily lap-steel guitars. Looks like he made that bass for himself and it could be the only one. I could make one but not for that price.

    I agree. But Mike Watt gets a pass. Because, well, he’s Mike Watt!

  12. Plus, it's HIS bass. He can do whatever makes him happy.

    Seems like we were here just yesterday......



    So I guess a new version of an old-ish pic?

    Sure enough!
     
  15. I'll just post this here again. Probably for the 10th time already. But it never gets old.

    Since there's been some discussion about various tunings, I thought I'd post this video from Stringjoy. They make good strings and I get email occasionally from them with various video topics. I thought this would be of interest.

    Played bass or attempted to play bass for several decades now and have never used (needed?) an alternative tuning. Maybe one day I'll give it a try.

    Contemplating The Engine Room was the tipping point that made me go out and find a TBird in the first place. Also Alex, from Einsturzende Neubaten

    I was listening to Gimme Back My Bullets last night in going to sleep. I have some Sony earbuds that really let you hear the bass. I love the bass part on this. Some cool playing. (Computer speakers won't do it as the bass isn't terribly forward.) The tone has a nice raunchy texture to it.
