Re: thumbing with the tug bar

I wish I had a tug bar, even though I probably wouldn't use it. A thumb rest would be awesome.

I've always wondered, do you have to take it off to change your strings?

Re: What's with the Warwick hate???

+1

EDIT: The tone is quite interesting, to be honest, but it wouldn't work for the music I play :?

Re: Student seeking some short scale sport...

We imported a nice Mustang Bass from Ishibashi a while ago, so no more short scale sorrows.

I want the Mustang. :?

Re: Our Sunday Jam

It's a shame that Billie Jean has one of the few bass lines that non-musical people recognize.

Kinda tired of hearing "can you play Billie Jean?" :?

Re: Bass Finishes

Yeah you could be more specific on the blue and green, red too. Also, what kind of vibe? '60s? '70s? Modern? Something else? I was going to, but after realizing I'll never be able to fit all of Fender's color schemes in one thread, never mind all manufacturers', I gave up. Dakota Red, Fiesta Red, C...
