I forgot about the last GAS I had:

It was a lot prettier in the Legator website. Much more vibrant purple like it was photoshopped…

It grew on me :pouting_woman:t2::woman_shrugging:t2:

Now that’s an axe. The Djentonator! Awesome :slight_smile:

Congrats!
The only thing I don’t like about them is the battery box. It’s the standard 9 volt tab and cable. I hate changing 9V batteries, I always end up breaking the tab. I want to upgrade the battery box to the EBMM style (slip in and out). Not sure if the boxes are the same size and interchangeable.

Very interested to hear what you decide to do there and how it turns out!

i also, strangely, think i agree :thinking: (what the hell??). for the first time in a long time i looked at reverb and thought “i don’t think i need anything right now”. hmm…

It’s everywhere now. We are spending way too much time outside our home. I miss the good ol’ days, of Uber Eats and internet, lol.

Just wait. I had that exact feeling a few months ago and I have been gassing quite hard right now :joy:

im back in the office and I hate it. My therapist can tell how much my mental health has deteriorated. I know I made a lot of posts about bringing a bass to work and it’s just not happening. Too many people bother me and I don’t want to take it on the train, either.

I really miss just reaching over and grabbing it for a few minutes of noodling whenever I was stressed…

So many projects and ideas… so many projects and ideas. I’ll probably put three holes in it so I can do volume+tone capsule, and who knows on the pickup. Fluence doesn’t make one for this housing :upside_down_face: (Bartolini iirc; screws are in the right place anyway)

I have two basses in my office, and neither have come off the wall in the last two months. The work that is getting in the way is just trivial, time consuming, and non productive :disguised_face:

Strangely even I am not feeling gas right now. The FGN has completely robbed me of it, and I’m not even that curious about replacing the SPB3s.

Weird. What is this feeling, maturity?

Fear not, this aberration will pass.

Guess what?

Also ordered some upgrades for Ray4. More details in Project Basses.

Is everyone going Fender?

Well I tried Sire V5. It’s nice, bit heavy but nice, except that headstock. But there’s just this thing, it’s missing that growl in tone, it just doesn’t sound like I expect Jazz to sound.

And it’s not like I don’t own Fender’s already :smiley:

Almost went Fender. A Sire P5 with Nordstrand NP4 pups instead.

That buttercream/white/maple is such a great combo. A MIM P in that color was my second choice behind my MIJ.
