    I actually do have an old EXP-200 to pair with it. Need an MX220 and a Snakebyte to collect the whole set. :lol:

    I had an FX 250 or whatever. Kinda wish I had it still. I sold it cheap cuz it was gutted and I didn't want to build it back up.

    I've been GAS-ing for one of the limited edition olive drab reissues of the 1964 Gibson ES-345 VOS with a Bigsby and Mono Varitone control. These guitars are so hard to find nowadays, and the prices have shot way up in the market.

    And sure, I'll admit that this film ignited the GAS.

    I can't tell if Bradley Cooper was playing a reissue that was poorly relic-ed by a props department or art department, or if the guitar was an actual vintage, historic model from 1964. (The worn, relic-ed areas of the body and headstock are in such odd locations that don't seem to follow the typical path of what happens when a guitar ages, and they make absolutely zero sense to me as a player.)

    Yudai's (Crystal Lake) ESP Custom. I've been a big fan of this since he got it.

    @possumkiller What say you?

    I say that is one of the sexiest ESPs I have ever seen in my life.

    Need a new bass and the Squier contaporary Jazz bass pretty much has everything I want for the budget I have. Still hesitating as I'm reading mixed reviews.

    I know this is for guitars we are gassing for, but I wouldn't mind an AC Plus to round out my Xotic pedals. If I could find one for around $80, I'd buy it.

    I’m a total guitar nerd, but my bass threshold is simple: does it look like a jazz bass? Does it sound like a bass? Do I enjoy playing it?
    Squier usually does an excellent job at hitting those marks for me. A pickup swap and bridge upgrade can help even more, but depending on your purposes, they can scratch an itch cheaply. I WISH my expectations for a guitar were that simple.

    Problem is I'm not sure what the hell kinda pickups fit in those routes. EMG 35 pickups are wider. Only thing I can think of is Bartolini or Norstrand.

    Norstrand big singles and you got a winner. Maybe some upgrade for the electronics too if needed.

    But me being me I rather get an SR. Cant deal with the weight and sitting down neck dive of Fenders, and not sure how people still do

    Because maple necked J basses kick ass.

    Never had neck dive problems with mine tbh.

    Im sure on a strap they are fine. But none of each Fender I decide to try in stores have good balance on your lap. Its the worse bass I have played sitting down as balance goes. That plus the fact they weight a ton to start with. Im sure they sound lovely AF. But they would always be a big nope for me, no matter how many times I try them :)

    I've owned and played tons of Jazz basses of all quality levels over the past 26 years, can't say there's been a single time I've had issues with how they sit or hang when standing.

    I mean, electric bass is supposed to be played like a stand up bass, but upside down, right?
