    What don't you like about your favorite bass? My new Roscoe LG3005 hangs a little more horizontal than I like!

    I just purchased a Jerzy Drozd Excellency and the only thing that kinda bugs me, just a little, is the space between the pick-ups. It's a little tight for slapping. But I wil be victorious, and all will be good.
    I just have to adapt. No biggee.[​IMG]

    I guess the one thing I don't like on my Peavey Cirrus is the spaces around the 'C' inlay. Too bad it sounds so good, or I might have gotten rid of it! :D

    The only thing I dont like about my squier is that the thing would not stay in tune to well. After some slap bass it would fall out of tune. But thanx to Woodchuck (Thanx again man) I got some awesome strings that do as advertised. They stay in tune, lol. So anyways, a bit off topic...The new strings bring a great tone to my bass, and im just about statisfied. Is this normal? Could the change in strings some how fill the void that I was feeling?
  7. Your Roscoe can be made to balance better by relocating the butt-end strap hanger about 2" closer to your body.

    My main bass has a 1 piece slab cut neckthru neck.
    The sound is fantastic and the neck comfortable, but it tends to move a little too much with weather.
    If I was to have it made again, I'd probably go with either stiffeners or a 3 piece neck.

    The Roscoe's bottom button is set closer to my body by design. It's not as bad as a Warwick balance wise but it still doesn't hang like a Fender or my Lakland. I gotta slap some Strap Loks on it yet. I'll adapt I suppose.

    I have to watch the temperature with my Jazz bass as it has a nitro finish and a thin neck...

    Well, if you're unhappy, you can just give it to me, I'll live with the minor neck dive.

    Anything to help a fellow TBer out!

    There's only one thing about my favorite, the singlecut Elrick in my Avatar. I love the feel, weight, balance, looks, versatility; it's like it was custom made for me. It's the band, they'd rather I strapped on the Fbass, I don't get it! :mad:
  15. My TBC sounds great and feels darn good, but I can't get low action out of it, and there a couple of dings here and there, but only because I am kind of clumsy and it is used. But beside that is sounds really good. It is a little heavy though, and the stuff on the back cuts me when I play without a shirt on, because of the control plate, battery box, and slightly mangled screws for the neck. All in all still a godlike bass

    I wish my Modulus Quantum 5 had 19mm bridge spacing instead of 17mm.

    I wish my Lull P5 had 19mm bridge spacing instead of 17mm.

    My MTD 535 has a bit of a dead spot at 9th fret D string. After all these years I'm accustomed to avoiding the standard Fender dead spot (7th fret G string), I'll just have to get used to this one too. :)

    :meh: Can't think of any complaints on my Spector..its a gem! :D Only complaint on my SX jazz is that the pickups don't drop low enough and I ahve to turn off teh neck pup to slap or play above the 12th fret or else i get nasty popping. I could fix this, but I've been too lazy lately.

    On my Wal bass, I don't really like having the output jack coming out the bottom edge because it makes it difficult to play when sitting on the floor or couch, so I would prefer it to have the output jack on the front. The problem might have been worked around by using a chord with an angled connector, but NO, they had to recess the jack making that impossible.

    My main bass is an Ibanez SR645. The string spacing is too tight. It's not my favorite bass, but it does well for now.
