    School's music department has a red fernandes strat EXACTLY like that one. Easily one of the best they've got. Four hundred... If I had a little more disposable income (read: A JOB) I'd defo look to grab one, useful having a decent axe sitting around, even as a bassist...

    Been digging hard on Eric Gales recently, this riff is just ridiculous.

    YES

    Picked up a second-hand Squire Jazz bass for $310. Tried it out the other day, plays beautifully, total steal for the price.

    Not so much that as I'd have thought for the style of music you play, actives would be a must. In my view, in a bass, anything other than 70's style James Brown skank would demand actives.

    Just won this puppy;

    Fernandes Guitar "The Revival" Strat | eBay

    Sexy and I got it freaking cheap too. Gold.

    I know I must seem like a Fernandes nut these days but this one is a good 'un I reckon.

    Fine with passives tbh, playing bass in a two gat noisy rock band means that any extra sparkle or definition brought by actives would just get lost in the mix, not sure what the gain would be. Prefer to keep it simple, at least until I've got cash to experiment a little.

    Hah, nice. How big is your collection now?

    Ibanez UV777
    Yamaha Pacifica Mike Stern Signature
    Casio MG-510
    2 x '81-'83 Fernandes Revival Teles
    2 x '82-'83 Fernandes Revival Strats

    All I need (for now) is a Les Paul or 335-Style guitar. In terms of Japanese guitars, the good ones are far harder to find.

    Experimenting with pedal order at the moment, putting the compression at the end of the chain rather than at the beginning is proving to be useful for all except the overdrive pedal. Annoying. Think I need a new OD anyway, the Jekyll and Hyde just isn't cutting it any more.

    Oh FFS, **** you Andy Timmons.

    Andy Timmons - Headed For The Ditch live - YouTube

    The opening riff is ridiculous, most guys I've seen try to play stuff like that are only able to do it with a slap-back delay. Timmons is playing Every. Damn. Note.

    It's guys like that which make me think I chose the wrong instrument.
