    For the Brits in this thread, can I just say that the lidl deluxe salt and vinegar flavour crisps are as close to the taste of fish and chips as you can get without having the real thing
  2. Just shows that something well made, is made to last. I have a few of those injection molded cases which should go on for eternity, although are less cool looking than yours. They've put more damage on to my car than they've taken on themselves
  3. I've only the one gibby but its really fun to play and sounds great. For teaching bass, I'm forced to use my fender though because the gibson case is just too long to fit in the car without putting the seats down. First world problems ey...
  4. Up until last year I worked on The Strand so Im very partial to the Covent Garden/Trafalgar Square area's. China town is 5 minutes walk from Trafalgar square as well, which is itself only 5 minutes from Denmark Street. I never use tubes in central London any more, since working there I've realised how close together everything worth seeing actually is
  5. I've read this thread, not done any research and am still blissfully unaware as to when it's happening. Unfortunately my phone thinks i should be sent push notifications on the topic though
  6. had to bookmark this one
  7. For 2nd hand equipment I like https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk For information I like https://www.musicradar.com/guitars
  8. To nib or not to nib, that is the question
  9. Really lovely. The vibe of this series with the nail holes etc reminds me of James Hetfields new guitar made from the garage where they recorded master of puppets. Awesome
  10. I've got a few guitars at my sisters which I want to go and weigh when Im next there on friday. I feel like my lp double cut style guitar is probably half the weight of any other electric I own because its built like a pine tele and my thunderbird bass is ridiculously light given the size of it. The gibson website specifies that they used ultra low/clear density wood for that purpose. My Michael Kelly came out to 8lbs which seems about as heavy as I could comfortably go on an electric (I have a few problems with my back still from my rugby playing days).
  11. This thread has made me just go and weigh all of my guitars which I've never done before. Seems by precision bass is the heaviest I own and its 9lbs. Feels slightly too much in all honesty
  12. Seems like this sites been going for a long time, Im surprised I've never come across it. Looks like I've got my bedtime reading sorted
  13. Anyone else been keeping tabs of fenders most recent marketing efforts? Its fantastic, especially the cartoons they've done to accompany their new pedal line.
  14. DV247 allocated me an account manager who basically checks in with me every once in a while to see if I'm looking for anything. They also discount things on request. I've not personally experienced any issues with them, but yes everything ships from Germany
  15. Same here. Slash kept me sane in the 90's when all of my friends were listening to steps, backstreet boys, five and countless other bands not worthy of their fame during that decade
