the wife said "So you'll be selling your other bass?"

No way, why doesn't she get it? :rolleyes:

In that case, it's in the right place.

I apologise if my joke was in poor taste

My bass hasnt been out of its flight case since I left Burton on Trent in 1998

One live performance, British Waterways works Xmas party at Stourbridge Bonded Warehouse

It was black and headless and I suspect, Hohner, but I cant quite remember

Its on the other side of the room about 12 feet away

Good choice (though a bit heavy for a weed with a bad back like me).

And you can never have enough guitars.

The headless ones were Steinberger or Hohner. The latter was a licenced budget version of the former, made with wood instead of carbon fibre.

I always thought (and still do) that the headless ones just looked "wrong"

Not quite so unbalanced as some basses as dont have a big chunk of wood and tuning keys at the end

Bit odd when youre fretting down towards where the head should be and ther isnt one!

Maybe should get it outs of its case, and reveal to sunlight after all the passed years, like Tutenkahmun

recently bought a telecaster from my neighbour, cream with a white scratchplate and a maple neck. I adore it.

I like the look of the Steinberger with the minimalist body. Probably a good thing for portability, too.

On the other hand, a bass (or guitar) with a full size body and no headstock looks wrong to me.

Telecasters have got to be the nicest looking guitars. Perhaps it is because that they were one of the first of their kind and so popular but no other guitar looks as good IMO.

Nice looking, yes. But, thanks to the cover of 'Damn the Torpedoes', I do have a soft spot for the classic Rickenbacker, too.

At the other end of the scale, Google the Gibson Corvus. What were they thinking?

I can't do with those guitars that poodle haired spandex metal bands use. The ones thatv stick out at all sorts of angles

before I got my tele I used my son's SG, which is nice, but the tele feels much nicer.

I love rickenbackers-the way they look and the way they sound: the first electric guitar was a rickenbacker.

They have that nice "jangly" 60s sound

So, any of you have youtube vids of yourselves playing? Or are you just casual tinkerers?

I did try to learn guitar quite a while back (read:20 years or so), and also dabbled with bass. Couldn't get the hang of either, although I got a bit further on bass.
