    Trying my hand at a refinish project.

    I've always wanted to refinish a guitar with a more "surfy" color, but I usually buy them in a color I already like. Well, I got a deal on a Squier VM Jaguar short scale bass, but it was all black and showed every fingerprint under the Sun. So, over the past few months I've been doing a little...

    This Site HAS To Be A Scam.

    I saw an ad on FaceSchmuck for a music shop claiming too much inventory due to COVID. I don't believe them for a minute! Brand name guitars for under $100?! Uhm, yeah. :facepalm https://www.iguitarflash.com/ Has anybody bought one of these? I'd be curious to hear the run-around they gave...

    Any Aftermarket Necks For Shortscale Mustang Basses With SS Frets?

    Occasionally I like to treat myself to an aftermarket neck for one of my guitars. However, now that I've switched over to playing a Fender Mustang PJ Bass I don't see anything available. I've looked at both Warmoth and Musikraft, but they only make long scale necks or short scale necks for their...

    Anyone happy with their SD STK-JB1 Classic Stack Bridge?

    I meant to type STK-J1b, but I'm a little bit dyslexic. :facepalm I bought a couple of these bridge pups for half price plus $9 shipping from The Stratosphere during their BF sale with intentions of putting them in my Fender PB&J Mustangs. I thought that was a decent price as I've been looking...

    Borrowing a friend's Rumble 100 and having trouble getting a decent tone. What am I doing wrong?

    The Fender Rumble amps seem to be a popular inexpensive series of bass amps so I wanted to give one a try. Luckily a friend of mine has a 12" Rumble 100 V3 he could loan me for a few days. However, I can't get a decent sound out of it to save me. Frankly, it sounds like a bloated, cheap car...

    Some Special Offsets at Dave's

    I don't suppose anyone here would be interested in this old stuff. No poly base coat like the AVRI '62 versions like I have. Painted headstocks on the Jazzmasters, unlike mine. a 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets, which is an improvement, IMO. Still has a push-in trem arm, which is an easy fix...

    A Fender Meteora Bass?

    I know this is a polarizing guitar, but I absolutely love it and think it could make a great 4-string short scale bass. :love: I'm thinking 2 volumes, 1 tone, a painted headstock, 4 large tuning machines, a Jazz type neck with a 1.5" nut width, lots of cool surfy color choices and perhaps even...

    Can A Bass Be Played Through A Peavey Classic 50 At Low Volumes?

    I'm considering getting my first bass, probably a short scale Mustang PB&J. I don't have a bass amp and don't plan on getting one any time soon. I don't gig or anything so I'm not sure if I even need one. What I do have is a very nice Peavy Classic 50 2x12 and an older Silverface Bandmaster...
