The Official EB 2016 Presidential Thread!
Nov 05, 2014 - 7:45 PM - by burdizzos
burdizzos's Avatar Who are your picks for this round of Douchebag Vs Shit Sandwich?

Clinton and Rubio currently have the best odds.

I'm hoping for Nikki Haley Vs Joe Biden as it would be good for a pile of pork for South Carolina.

New Pickups
May 30, 2016 - 4:57 PM - by Les Izzmor
Les Izzmor's Avatar So. I have this Spector bass (not the cursed one) I love playing it, but I'm not a fan of the pickups.

I would like to replace them. I'm not sure what I'd like to get. I don't really know a lot about pickups.

I think I'd like a punchier tone. Don't care if they're active or passive. The bass currently has active pickups in it, so I don't think that'd be an issue.

Any suggestions before I began my research?

So I performed at this last night. I was backing some young rappers called "Rare individuals". There is video footage that I will post later. Again, mine has bad audio, and is a weird camera angle. I'll share it if you wanna see it.

But the point of my starting this thread was I have officially gotten old! All I could think about as I entered the event was "These children are too young to be out here this late, and most of the girls are not wearing enough clothes! Do your parents know where you are? Turn that hippity Hop music down! Don't smoke that! Don't you kids know that's illegal? What did those guys on stage just say? Did they say it again? I'm going to wash that kids mouth out with soap!

I'd kinda like to go see Ludacris after my set, but there are no comfy chairs out here, and I don't wanna stand that long! Oh, and the traffic is gonna be murder getting out of here, so I better go now.

Don't I have a TV dinner in the fridge? Isn't sunday when they rerun Scandal?

Just sharing my thoughts! Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!!!!

RyCLB's Avatar Technically, these guys came in last Thursday and Friday, but who's counting?

The first is a BassMods K634, with Nordstrand pickups and BassMods pre. Spalted maple top over chambered alder body, maple neck with MOP block inlays:

Close up of the body:

With its older brother, Kermit:

Numero dos is a Carvin/Kiesel JB5 fretless. Walnut top over chambered alder body, maple neck with ebony fingerboard, walnut veneer on the headstock:

Close up of the body:

Both guys together:

Overall, I'm incredibly happy with both basses. I continue to be impressed with the Carvin/Kiesel build quality (I bought a custom SB5000 about 3 years ago). For the price, you really can't beat it. The BassMods is a bit neck heavy, which makes me regret getting the chambered body - the green sixer I bought last year is HEAVY, but well balanced. The new sixer is fine once I strap it up, but the tone definitely makes up for the balance issue.

Clips coming soon (or in a year)...

willsellout's Avatar In the interest of fairness, I think we should have a place to post shit that sucks as well as a place to post when it does not.

I've got a headache that won't go away, my kid is acting retarded, I am traveling for work for the next week, and I don't really have any food in the house that I want to eat.

On the plus side, my kid is in her room for the foreseeable future, I have alcohol to help with the headache, and I'm sending the wife to the store to pick up some food. I'm also packed for my trip.
