well, the baby went off today to have the bottom horn reglued and paint touched up a bit, hopefully making it alot more what it should look like, and alot more sturdy. the bloke doing it said he'd never seen a bass so extravogant, he comes highly recogmended though so hopefully he'll do a great job, quote was really cheap aswell, just need to get the bartolini pickup i'd like, new bridge screws and possibly correct truss rod cover,
cant wait!

Here's my bass I recently purchased, with the intention to fix up. At some point it has had the bottom left horn smashed off [:(] and has been  re-glued quite poorly but i've found a restorer who should be able to sort that, and comes highly recogmended, i am also currently trying to do something with the bridge, the screws are rusted, but other than that it's beautiful, but not pictured sorry. I'll hopefully be able to get it sorted after christmas, then i'll definately post finished pictures.
The truss rod cover is also incorrect, and will need sorting.
I've circled damage thats not overly visable, as the pictures are small.

This is the bass (mostly disassembled):

This is the damage i explained from the front:

This is the damage from the back where it sadly snapped completely off  [:(]

and this is the incorrect trust rod cover.. just for fun [:I]

I cant wait for it to all be sorted, it plays beautifully, it just feels a little fragile, tell me what you think, of it and my intentions.
laters,  nick

General Discussion / PLEASE HELP!? Put Passive Pickup Into Active Bass?
« on: December 22, 2005, 10:35:35 AM »
ive found a bartolini replacement pickup that would fit my bass, but it's passive and i believe my bass to be active. i dont know bugger all about electronic so can anyone talk me through the pro's and cons of installing a passive pickup into an active bass? or even if its possible? i don't have a clue, all i know is that the pickup should fit, and that its a nice pickup!

please help![?]

Discuss Basses and Bass Playing / who is the best bassist going?
« on: December 22, 2005, 10:22:48 AM »
best bassist i've proably seen live would be Geezer Butler, truely awesome, but two of the best ive seen maybe not for their masses of tallent, but purely their catchyness and stage presence, would have to be Nikki Sixx and Lemmy. Steve Harris' cool too, but i dont think he's anything exceptional, but a good song writer.
I think my favourite bassist though would have to be Geddy Lee, watching him on Rush In Rio, is awesome, i just found myself staring in awe. How does one man play so amazingly, while singing like he's just been castrated... thats rock 'n roll for ya. [:D]

[:X]  Yeh, i purchased the bass recently from Germany, so it's been around a bit, with the intention of fixing it up to a near new state hopefully. I t has been 'destroyed' at some point the bottom horn with the pots in seems to have been smashed off. and has been re-glued quite shabbily, but there is a restorer near by who is supposed to be awesome, who im going to get in touch with after christmas, hopefully he will be able to reglue it, and touch up the paint work alot better than has been done. Im hopefully going to stick a Bartolini replacement pickup in there, theres just one problem i can only find a passive washburn replacement of the same dimensions, so it would mean changing from active to passive, and im not very experienced when it comes to the electronics of basses.
Also the bridge is beautiful lovelley crome, but needs a bit of TLC, can be strung through body, or regularly, but the screws on it have rusted and when i try to remove them the heads just corrode. any ideas for removing them? PLEASE HELP![?]

Hey, I recently purchased a Rudy Sarzo bass, but it's different from the typical model. it has 1 humbucker, if anyone can help me gain any knowledge on what model it actually is it'd much appriciated, i only enquire as the trust rod cover(thing) reads AB-45, but when i do any sort of search on it, all i find is images of big accoustic looking basses.
the serial on the neck plate reads: 580123, if that's any help at all.

thanks alot, any help at all would be vastly appriciated
