I don't know about nut width but wood weight varies from piece to piece. Even when a company lists specs on weight that is just an average.

Also over priced is all about context. As Fender and clones keep pumping out more and more soso POS all the cheap but good ones of yesterday year's prices go up. I haven't played a new fender in over ten years I would use on a 4 hour gig no matter what the weight is.. and really all there is to the "P" sound is a P pickup and "normal" woods like a maple neck and a body that is of a lightish wood [meaning not bubinga or rosewood or some crap].. You want light? I don't know maybe look at basses with basswood bodies? or do a project with a pine body?

what i mean is
-why doesn't the guy listing his bass on ebay chuck it on the bathroom scales
-dealers and flippers have jacked up the perceived values of old mij stuff across the board

We'll I'm going to say laziness. I guess if everyone spammed everyone selling a instrument what it weighed?
I am seeing that with everything now.. it's weird as I know buying is down.. because no gigs.. so any rise would be do to collectors? Maybe because the hair metal generation are at the age of boomers on the 90's now anything 80's is overpriced?

Comping: Bartolini Bill Dickens Conklin 7 string bass Bridge pickup & Bartolini preamp [V, M, T&B] :thumb: I almost order something custom but cost plus no one has a "base" model they are will to say "ok here is what we make the most"... They all say they will make anything and it's $$$... while I think that is rad and I could give them a bunch or crazy ideas I really want something generic and basic.. I think what I will do if I NEED another pickup is add on/off switches before the preamp and adjust the balance with pickup height...

I've regretted selling my Onde Magnetique Cassette Tape Echo for a while, finally found one in good shape at a reasonable price.

Almost bit on one of the Onde Magnetique tape Mellotron things a few weeks ago but I'm unconvinced that I could actually use it musically instead of just having an expensive toy.

Holy fuck balls that looks like so much fun.


Despite all the non-sense I've bought and tried, Tensor is still my desert island pedal. Not only does it do so much, but it is super accessible and controllable. It was probably the one pedal that I was most conflicted about keeping when I first got it, but fell deeply and madly in love with it once I started to understand it.

Pladask Taken is probably my number 2 pedal at the moment. Its just so gorgeous sounding. The 2 asynchronous delays on their own are truly glorious sounding, but when you set the feedback to the edge of oscillation it produces this absolutely stunning sheen around your music. I can't get enough of it. My horrible guitar playing even sounds good through it.

Dear Secret santa I might have broken my vow of not buying anything until Christmas - but pleas understand, my birthday was last week, I sold a couple pedals so I gave myself a little present. :idk: :facepalm:
I won't say what it is, but least it wasn't on my wantlist, and there's no chance you are gifting me the same thing :hug:

Yeah. When I finally get tired of struggling with equipment, I just get rid of them all, try new stuff in their place. I kind of have a system that requires certain things in certain places etc.

yeah i can't imagine what it's like to rewire your beast of a board with all the foot controllers each time you change a pedal. :eek:
