I figured from the pickups. Not Ibanez. Not Dean...no clue. Confuses the hell out of me.

Fair enough, but if you had quoted one of my posts, you would have had the answer! Wink

In fact, PRS wasn't too far off, because it is a boutique brand, only reason I can afford it, its 2nd hand.

I looked after that last post. But didn't want to give it away until you did Wink

Don't they make those badass thunderbirds?

That's probable. But different basses work on different people.

So I'm assuming that you aren't getting one of those T-birds?

You seem to dig basses that have to do with one Roscoe or another! tongue

No, no Roscoe T-Bird, though I did recenly play a T-Bird for the first time, and fell in love with the tone, despite dive, hard to reach lows when standing, and less than optimal upper fret access(could still hit 19th, just).

This be what I'm getting, a LG-3005.


Has some extras too,
Exhibition grade flame top, half the thickness of the body, rather than a thin veneer,
Bubgina fretboard,
custom inlay,

Pretty nifty! Very Happy

Woah! Bonus...that's quite an eyeful! What's the inlay supposed to be? I dig the slant on the pickups.

Yeah. Thunderbirds and Explorers are difficult to reach the high notes on. However, the Kelly lends itself really well to higher notes due to the way the cutout actually lines up with the neck well...quite a cool shape.

Oh! And about the Roscoe thing, this one was chance, not design(unlike the RB), I was looking for a sweet 5er to go with my Fender, and had a budget, but this popped up, just over budget, but at an irresistible price, considering the extras, and I know someone who's actually played it, and gave me the lowdown, hehe, had to go for it!

Haven't a clue what the inlay's ment to be lol, but it looks cool! Very Happy

I didn't think that Explorers were that hard, the T-Birds problem is that the neck is so set in to the body, like an acoustic.

Oh! Someone has posted me a tracing of an Epi Explorer Bass, should be building a body up for my spare neck in a few weeks.

Should be here in another 2/3 weeks, sending final payment tomorrow, hopefully.

And for sure Eric, you'll hear far too much from me on it! Very Happy


I'm just suprised you didn't mention adding a trem. lol!




































Rolling Eyes No, I will not add a trem........... (Darkstrike does not currently have the cajones to dig a hole out of a bass like this, yet... No )

It occurred to me, but I don't blame you for not wanting to dig a hole in that bass.

Of course, I would! Laughing

Now, now, I might grow a pair.

Or send it to Roscoe to do it, we'll see, if its perfect when it lands, I'll not do a thing.

Actually, one thing I was thinking was, tune it DGCFBb, and have a drop tuner go to low C, covering most of the range of a six string...

Hmm. I'd be frightened to modify it as well. I mean, it's so carefully designed, what could I do to that? Nothing comes to my mind. I'll bet it'd be incredible with a Kahler, though!

You have a source for old B3 parts, Bill? Can you get your hands on a bass pedalboard? I've always wanted to do one of those MIDI things where you can turn a bass pedalboard into a set of fake Moog Taurus pedals. One of these days! Wink

Same here, as I said on the other thread, the whammy bar could be at least 3" longer.

Totally. The longer the arm is, the more comfortable it is to play, the better it feels and sounds.

it is VERY rare when I tune to EADG, always liked the low D and fretting the E on the 2nd fret instead of open, and just transpose the fret positions to play normally. DGCF, or CGCF for drop C stuff all the way for me flower

Actually, I'm almost always in E flat, I love that extra little snarl it has, I'd play in D near constantly, but I'd need extra high tension strings, which aren't east to get here.

The basses that I tune to E or D, they tend to float in between there somewhere. I dig the different tension on the strings. My Roadstar loves D, but my Charvel doesn't dig it too much.
