    look what I bought.....Pelham blue...

    [​IMG]

    http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2014/Midtown-Signature-Bass.aspx

    See where it says "Share" Specification" listen" bla blah blah..?

    click on "listen" and you can hear what it sounds like...passive electronics better than anything you've ever heard...even my subwoofer can't handle the bass. This thing has a set neck...very good sustain...whoever did the set was not drunk, for sure.. and it has NO fret buzz.. I bought it on the spot for that reason alone...the neck is TOTALLY FUCKIN PERFECT. the guy, "I'll set it up for you, free of charge".. I SAID NO THANKS, I like it the way it is.. can I get a set of strings instead? Anyways this thing is not a semi acoustic, it just has chambering..it has solid mahogany from tip to toe, a solid sustain block, so no problems with feedback...It has a true neck pickup..only 20 frets instead of double octave 24 or even the high "e" 21 fret thing just 20 frets, and there is less than a 1mmgap between the neck pickup and the fretboard. And I can play very fast triplets stuff on it. like with 3 fingers pounding off the fretboard..try that on a fender and it sounds all garbled...Feels retarded too (fenders) like when you were a kid and you took your neighbors dog for a walk, and then you decided to wrap the leash around your hand and wrist real tight, so the dog won't run away, and then you start to jog or run with it, and the dog is stronger and running faster than you and you are like "FUCK!!!!!", well that doesn't happen on this bass guitar.. I would have dropped 5 grand easy on this thing, it cost me 1899 plus taxes. Less than the 335 bass they had for 2475.

    This is the best bass I have ever played. collectors item, 120th anniversary logo on the twelfth fret, and Pelham blue colour, goes with my jeans.
    EVEN if you don't play bass I recommend you get one.

    Fuckin thing sounds great. I have played 10000 dollar alembics with abalone gorilla cocks all over the fretboard and cocobolo tops and THIS THING IS BETTER.

    I just played Rush 2112 with just the bridge pickup...better than ANY Rickenbacker..

    SOME BASS PLAYERS KNOW HOW TO ROCK <S> JACK CASADY :UU:

    GET A BEER. OPEN IT AND DRINK SOME. IF YOU SMOKE LIGHT ONE UP TOO. TURN YOUR SPEAKERS UP LOUD. THEN CLICK THE LINK. I AM SERIOUS.

    I was at an SVT concert in the early '80s.

    OMFG.
    I didn't know he croaked!
    I know now.
    They say never speak ill of the dead.
    Well, sorry.


    So read, and know, I used to love the Who.
    [right up till Kieth Moon died, then the Who sucked, selling Coca Cola at Murkin football stadiums, PFT]]

    Skip ahead a bit until the OLD GUY steps out of the trailer, and into the yard at the rendering plant.
    That is a terrible solo.
    I don't give a shit about him being young once, this is proof that OLD GUYS get brain strokes. Arthritis, joint pain, rheumatism and slow down to a shaky stop, and then die.

    Inept POS work he is doing, he needs a 'helper' like so many other revival tours that OLD GUYS do, you know when they are baby sat while drueling in front of an audience?
    This solo is an insult and Money-men who convinced him to get on the stage should be shot while he is being euthanized.
    This terrible playing isn't his fault it is the fault of the marketing ploy that got him out of the old folk's home and onto a stage, where he does not belong.

    He is not alone, everyone gets old.
    There is a reason top performance is usually when young and strong and not carrying a colostomy bag around.

    Never mind the fucking exceptions this is is not in the crowd of exceptional OLD GUYS he is used up. Needs to rest on his laurels now.

    Being in a band is hard work.
    Entwistle is Old and warn out and he is showboating in this appearance and is just look like a geriatric.
    Just listen!
    Oooooooooooooooooh grampa is fading.
