Any sexy new basses you've got your eye on?

That is pretty good though…can tell it’s being adjusted, but it still works within the song…damn that is tempting. I sing in one song I made for my wife…it isn’t HORRIBLE but nothing to brag about lol.

Interesting. What part can you tell is adjusted? Oh I should mention - the “Oohs” a register up are synthesized, that’s not my singing.

You should try their free trial, it’s pretty cool.

I suppose it’s just an ear thing. I play live with an unadjusted singer a lot, and in studio we touch up here and there…so I can hear the actual difference. It isn’t “noticeable” unless it’s something you are specifically listening for. It’s a slight tonal thing, really weird lol. It’s also used by basically every pro, so it’s not anything to worry about.

One sure giveaway is that nearly no one actually sings with perfect pitch. The software lets you keep things detuned a bit if you want but I figured, nah and slammed everything to dead on :slight_smile:

Yeah, no worries man. I damn near can’t sing at all. In a very specific register where I don’t have to change to many notes I can do okay! Past that I’m going off pitch noticeably.

I made a new topic for this so we can stop derailing this one :slight_smile:


Nice bass!

i want the Mikey Way Squier Mustang bass
it aint new but its still purrty


It is standard on EBMM Sterling 4 strings.
And on the SBMM Ray 4 and Ray24
But I like the SLO = San Luis Obispo, I should have been able to figure that one out however. :blush:


Hah, I didn’t figure it out either. I saw it in a thread on the EBMM forum :grin:


I feel I should have gotten it however, because I have labeled Stingrays as MISLO before. D:UH


This just turned up in the classifieds here in Denmark: a Bacchus Woodline 5 - J-style, but with two very interesting pickups. The whole bass looks gorgeous; made in Japan. Not sure how old… Price for a new one apparently USD 3300; asking price is USD 1600 :joy:


Very nice Joerg👍 @joergkutter
Cheers Brian



Bacchus is definitely a legit brand, and is huge here. Owned by Deviser, a high end guitar company. Basically one of the really excellent Fender and Gibson cloners from way back, very high quality instruments. Been making great basses for a long time.

edit: found an english page with info.


If I were more of a “wheeler/dealer” (like @T_dub :wink:), I’d probably be buying this bass, alone for the fact that it is a rare one in this neck of the woods (and potentially also because it is a pretty good bass; and good-looking for sure)… Alas, as I have now already committed to a Sandberg, my bass budget is pretty maxed out and I’d better take it easy for a while :open_mouth:


Yeah I would probably rather have that Bacchus than any Fender. Looks like a great bass. The new Woodline 4-strings start from about $600USD here and go up to about $1500, for what it is worth.


Thanks! I would guess that the “cheaper” ones are perhaps not made in Japan, but somewhere in Indonesia? I think I read somewhere that they also have a less expensive line of models now, just like many other brands…


Not sure. I thought they were all MIJ but I could be wrong.

Also the top end ones are more than I thought, just saw a few for $2400.

From their web site it looks like aside from the lower end woodlines they have a few other budget lines in the $300-500 range. They claim the HANDMADE series Woodlines are all MIJ (they even say where) but they didn’t specify for the others that I saw.


The one I saw is definitely a HANDMADE one… but, oh well, another time perhaps :grin:


I’ll just send you my shipping address then??

What an amazing bass.
