    I asked nicely. :D

    He still has a website, and pedals are still on offer.
    He does have a kid since a few days though, so that might be an eventual end to pedal building.

    So I saved myself some money...for now. :lol: Just needed some new strings and it's bitchin'. Get a decent P/J sound by turning off the treble completely.

    STILL might do it in the future.

    What pisses me off is this bass, even though it's a 4-string, was advertised to be used for low tunings due to it's 35'' scale. Yet the fucking nut is filed to fit standard 4-string sets. When I try to use a 5-string set without the low G, it just... sits on top of the slots. None of the strings fit. :lol:

    Sooooo instead of getting the nut fixed, I'm gonna keep this for standard tunings and eventually find a C-305 or get a Spector NS-2000/5 or Schecter Riot.

    EDIT: I've also been kinda curious to try some "vintage" Ibanez Soundgear 5-strings.

    The only bass I have is a Ibanez SR885 from the 90's. It's a great bass and agree that a Soundgear 5 string would be a fun to have.

    I am currently looking at another Jackson V. It would be the size of the original King V's or as currently known as a Double Rhoads.

    I wish they did a PJ one back in the day. They did a ton of 4 string PJs but no 5 strings. :(

    Trying this again after the last failed attempt with Guitar Center. I found a mint 50w 5153 6L6, the 2.0 version, on Reverb and pulled the trigger. I'm really looking forward to A/B'ing it against my 50w EL34. I plan to just keep the winner, but we all know I'll just keep both so I don't know why I bothered typing that.:lol:

    I've got I think 8 or 9 Winspears coming. Figured I'd try out most of their materials and see how I like them compared to the gravitys I've been using for the past couple years.

    The Winspear picks catch much less than the Gravity picks do and all of the Winspear materials are more durable than the acrylic Gravity Picks uses except for maybe the Stealth series. The tips can be much sharper on the Winspear ones as well. Price of the Winspear is a bit more expensive but worth it.

    The Gravity acrylic wears better than the Winspear stealth material. I love how the stealth feels and sounds but they wear down in no time :2c:

    I was actually about to order some Gold Shiv minis because my Stealths have worn out but now see Gold is sold out :(

    the gravity gold material is definitely more durable than winspear's stealth material, but way less than bloodline/purity (UHMPWE) or whatever blue chip uses. UHMPWE is the holy grail material for me. It's quiet and super durable, plus it doesn't coat my guitar in black residue like the stealth material.

    With super tough and hard-wearing pick material, have you guys noticed increased string wear? I figure if the pick material is harder, surely that just increases wear on the strings right?

    Granted maybe most people who don’t use coated strings would change strings too often for it to matter.

    I haven't had a problem with string wear.

    Yeah unfortunately I want the sharp tip and the bloodline / purity have an extra bevel on the tip.

    I haven't really noticed it, but I'm using elixirs and tend to leave them on until my board needs cleaned :lol: I definitely have noticed the black dust from the Stealths wearing down though.
