Re: Rockshop website survey ...

Done, also Done! I didn't put it on the survey, but a really useful figure would be a large 'panic' button on every page that you could hit to bring up the image of a spreadsheet - useful when our significant others walk into room and find us looking at more expensive music gear Ha ha ha. Until then...

Re: Solid state heads - GK or Ampeg? (or SWR?)

If you liked the sound of your last rig going with a GK head might be your best bet. There is a 700rb with a Warwick 6x10 on trade me that is slightly above your budget (or is thee $800 budget just for the head)? http://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instruments/instruments/guitar-bass/bass-amps/auction-10...

Re: Working through replacing a truss rod in a Jazz bass neck

Wow, what a brave undertaking. I love this sort of thing
If the neck (wood) is twisted from the grain do you think there is a chance it might re-twist when the clamps are removed?
