NBD - First World Problems

Postby DigthemLows » Mon Feb 24, 2014 9:37 am

Picked up the 78 (on the right) yesterday and it's a little heavy, but has amazing tone......so, what to choose?? Which to play?? I don't think I'll keep all 3 so which is on the short list?? I'm considering a fretless neck for the MIJ on the left....I love me the P tone!! [smilie=fun_84.gif]

Keep all three. Make the MIJ a fretless. And you got to have two fretted basses: Your #1 and a back up.

Problem solved. You're welcome.

I'm a sucker for relic'd creamy white, so without hearing them, that's the one I'd gig with. If the heavy one really has that kill me tone, I'd keep that one for the studio and or gigs under an hour - other wise I'd off it and buy something hip with the now liquid assets. The future fretless one, I'd look for a sweet MIJ Fender A-width, unlined, rosewood jazz neck. I see those a coupla times a year pop up - honey sweet necks IMHO worthy of a romp with that P body.

Nice stable ya got there. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Ryan, I'm a sucker for unlined Fretless Maple necks. I'm thinking I'm going to order one from Warmoth and have them reverse the headstock too, just for fun..... [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif] I ordered an aged pearloid guard that I'm going to see how it looks on the cream......otherwise, yeah, I'm happy to have this problem!!

`

Sorry but I don't see the 'problem' .... two nearly
identical basses just back each other up. "Main"
and "Back Up" status do not need to be declared.

I certainly bleeb that back up, by having similar
or identical multiple basses, is a sensible thing.
Hey, the result is that I not only have too many
basses, but have twice-as-many as 'too many' :-0

New basses are red. Used basses are black.

2 hour gig on Saturday with the Middle one and just a single set (1 hour) with the 78 on Friday and I'm just not sure..........the satin neck on the white one is awesome and gets that gritty played feel once the sweat starts pourin...........then there's the gloss on the 78.........man it's smooth, although with heat it gets a little slippery...........The Relic (white one) is 8.4lbs and the 78 is 10lbs even and I can't tell the difference with a 3" levis strap.............so............I'm keeping em both for now..............

If you need to let that MIJ come back home, just let me know. :)

pretty sure that MIJ is gonna become a maple neck/board fretless with a reverse headstock ........ [smilie=cool-smiley-027.gif]

Oh and can't remember where someone was talking about competing with keyboards...........try Mandolin and Accordion .....where both players always play [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]

it's amazing what a good drummer can do with just a snare, kick and cymbals.......... I love it!!

I used to play with a drummer that played with a snare, high hat, and a ride cymbal. He'd use the wooden floor as his bass. Only on gigs would he bring a bass drum.
