With the ...

Re: Best gig bag on NZ?

I thought the top of the line Deluxe Rockbag was pretty good if you were on a budget, maybe you saw the lower budget ones, had great neck support with a strap and block, thick padding, metal feet buttons etc, and at 90 dollars you could afford to replace it every few years .I think a gigbag is o.k f...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

I think the Arse HAS fallen out of the market a bit at the mo, in New Zealand anyway, probably could get more than 2k for the lefty l2 V but it would sit on Trademe for weeks.Youre starting to get MIM Jazz Basses for well under 500 now, I think people are sitting tight.

Re: Cheaper bass guitars

Some of the best players ive had were " cheaper " Basses, for me its all about the setup/strings/shielding etc . Some people just cant play well, no matter how " expensive " the Bass is .
