woot! this showed up today.
Missing a couple of strings there, but it looks nice!
Helluva different feel from a guitar. I feel like I'm playing a high tension power line.
well for the 10 minutes i fiddled with it before i remembered that im at work
I know what you mean - I just started playing bass and it's a whole different feel. Fun to learn how to keep it from buzzing while developing a whole lot more left hand strength. Got mine set up by a local session musician who is also a luthier. Boy, it sounds a lot better when he is playing it than when I am.
Good luck - it looks nice.
They aren't supposed to rattle?
I'm having more trouble with the wildly different scale length right now. Holy shit the 2nd and 5th frets are wayyyyyyyyy the hell apart
I've got far too many guitars, but these get most of my playing time:
Larriveé L03 Bubinga
Seagull S6 Original
Seagull S12 Coastline
I just have 1 acoustic.

That video was awesome. I like seeing craftsmen at work, and the specialized tools they use. Makes me want to go build stuff in the garage.
I picked up a Vox AD30VT today. I like playing with all of the built in effects and models.
Since we're on basses, here are my dads
Peavey 5 string
Fender Jazz/P-Bass, fretless
and an Ibenez.(the gray one)
All he needs is a Carvin.
It did however crush my latent dream of ever building one myself. I went from 'how hard can it be' to 'holy crap this is difficult!'
Four wheels good, two wheels better
I don't use a lot of effects but has anyone ever tried this one?
^It's not worth a damn! I still couldn't string together 3 notes!
All that and more.
I've never used one but there are many bands that do.
I wanted to try some effects and on bewbtube I saw a cool iPhone thingymajig where you plug into the phone and can model all kinds of amps and stuff.
So I tried my own...
I couldn't figure it out so I called my son who is pretty good with new-fangled electronics.
He said I'm a dumb ass and needed an adapter... hmmm can I get one at RadioShack?
Here is a photo of my blues rig. The best part is the amp. According to the serial number it is a 1969 Fender Princeton Reverb. I have retubed it with Sovtek tubes. Nice sound!
I have an amp like that, not sure of the age, but I've had it since the early 70's and it was used then. Previous owner put a 12" JBL in it and used it for a PA for his magic act.
