I've been playing bass twice that long and... Oh
Yes: the video posted in this thread that's now set to private is the one where he got the response from 10S. I don't know the status of the original video.
Looks like the original is still up there last i saw. Interesting, I wonder what happened. In the response video, apparently 10S asked him to remove the original. Guess we will see, though obviously its only slightly relevant here.
It just showed up in my youtube feed, so it's definitely still up.
I'm not sure how helpful it would be to point that guy here. I suppose it would be another channel for publicity, but OTOH the guy might say "20 year waits? I don't believe there's any mystery here for me to investigate".
He eventually gave 10s the benefit of the doubt over the unpaid pickups and lack of communication, maybe he got more info as the original vid is still up but not the response.
DH and 10s?
Is this some kind of Marvel universe plot Im not seeing?
Are you kidding me
I haven't watched much of his stuff, but he's made multiple unsubstantiated (many controversial) claims and conclusions on multiple music/youtube personalities. I've often ended up seeing bits of his videos (from the victims rebuttal video) or watching the whole thing that way. Rob Chapman was the subject of one of his controversial clips, I think it was him claiming Chapman was stealing money or something. It's been years since I've watched it.
Eitherway, this video kinda reconfirms my feelings on him. Yes he's digging for the truth, but he seems to put opinion out there and extrapolate reasons without having the full story. Lots of speculation but I'm sure ends up dragging some peoples names through the mud.
Now I've never checked out his channel, so maybe it's full of quality investigative reporting. But, just the demeanor in the videos I've seen is enough for me to be very hesitant to have him represent a semi sensitive situation.
As kind of a follow-up, I just watched a couple more videos. Similar to my previous thoughts. I do however appreciate that he does try to update as information comes out, but still speculates on that as well. It's good to see that he appears to be trying to correct himself and collect the whole truth.
It still gets me a little though. Correcting yourself after making potentially damaging claims, does not offset speculation stirring the pitchfork mentality of the masses. That's essentially click bait 101 that he's pulling.
Lots of posts about the new CNC machine on Instagram.
This is the latest :
I hope he realizes that his first CNC pieces will probably be throw-aways…
If they turn out like that drawing with the "step ups" in neck width, they're firewood at that point and winter for him is about 3 months away.
I hope he realizes that the CNC doesn’t make finished basses.
I have no idea how he expects to deal with that. Yes, it would be possible to cut it that way, then rework it to remove the stairsteps, but it would be damned difficult to get right and take more time than he’d have saved by using the tool. One hopes that he figures this out before destroying too much nice wood. A CNC machine should be capable of tapered cuts - he just has to figure out how to program them.
Especially on his scroll basses, CNC does the easy part.
To spin a different light on this, especially with the CNC, he has proven an excellent example of how not to run a small operation. Hopefully in the not too distant future I hope to get a bass/guitar company off the ground, nothing like these scroll basses, but among other things, he's cemented that I will not take money prior to building. In fact I plan to limit "customization" to color and only sell what's been built, after its been built...
He truly has been an excellent example, unfortunately in all the wrong ways.
I think the "steps" are just due to his display settings for rendering in whatever program he's using. I mean, even the circles are stepped.
I think the steps are only a display issue
Maybe he's using Autocad release 12 for DOS with a screen resolution of 640 x 480. Back in the day "stair steps" in drawings was normal and only showed up on the screen. But in this day and age there's no excuse for it.
Looks like he's got the CNC part down. Now if he can just get the part "how to complete an order" down, he'll be good to go. He's only had 20 years to hone his skills.
