    Reverend just made the upcoming line of basses public today so I thought I could share with the class. I'll post pics on Sat. When I get back from the Circle R Ranch.
    :lol:

    :D

    Ken did tell me that they are working on a straight Tele model with Pete Anderson. I'm not sure what else I'll find up there but I'll let everyone know on Saturday. If I'm not sworn to secrecy.

    2 tone or 3 tone burst?

    any other short scale basses?

    Ooh.... orange would be killer.

    Dunno if I'd like a short-scale though. I'm not particularly happy with any of my current bass sounds, so it might be something to consider.

    Squier Vintahe Mod Jazz w/Flatwounds (I like this one best)
    90's Alvarez (plays amazingly but is pretty dam bright)
    90's BC Rich Warlock (currently on loan to a friend)
    80's BC Rich Warlock w/ Khaler trem (sounds alright, plays alright... was a gift from my brother-in-law)

    you could probably use a different pot value on the Alvarez to cut the brightness. give back that 90s BC Rich though.

    You mean the 80's BC Rich? The 90's one is on loan TO a friend. It's from my high school metal band days and had 24 frets for my bass solo. :facepalm:

    Alvarez was my first bass so there are a lot of scars and memories on that one. A new set of pups and pots would probably be a great idea. It has reverse P/J configuration.

    Oh and I forgot about my Ibanez 5-string... Luigi's been using that on his album and so has Aaron.

    I want a bass tone somewhere between these two songs:





    I think the flatwounds were a step in the right direction for the bottom track, but I've always been really picky about bass tones.

    no, i meant the 90s BC Rich. let him keep it as long as he likes. offer to let him buy it from you. cheap.

    you might actually like a Precision.

    Hate to admit it, but I've never owned one. I was looking at them for awhile though and was furiously checking HC and CL for a LPB one... :love:

    i prefer them over just about every other bass.

    The thing with a P-Bass is that even a cheap one will sound good. With the P/J pickup configuration it's also hard to lose...

    i hate the P/J configuration. all it does is introduce hum and high end. neither of which a bass needs.

    I don't seen to have that issue, and mine is a pretty cheap bass

    Which is probably part of the issue in my basses.

    The SX P at LMA is pretty damn good. Aaron bought a Lakland and after they'd both been set-up and we thoroughly played them we noticed a difference in the feel and a small improvement in the tone but not big enough of a difference to be worth $2k more, in our minds at least.

    still thinking about this short scale Club King. which is good. means my interest is peaked. i hope it doesn't suck.
