I've already decided to splash out on the paper copy as even with international postage I am pleased to see that the price is still com...

Re: What's your Bass(es)?

Apart from the Pangborn, they've either got, a) too many strings or, b) not enough frets :D

Re: Help me choose a colour for my bass!

That's a really nice looking bass and personally, I wouldn't hide that wood by painting it. A good sanding/sealing and an oil/wax application would really look good IMO :D

Re: How little would you play for?

But what gets me is the vast majority dont pay a band, even the popular bands any more than some bloke playing records through a third rate PA. That!

Oh no! Ban him immediately...

The Emperor Hadrian built a wall across the British Isles specifically to keep the jocks out. Knew what he was doing that Adrian bloke..... :D

Seriously, this guy will give you terminal GAS.... :)
