Great to see you!
That's a great story, even the tough parts.
Hope you find a way to bring music back in your life without the carpal tunnel. It may be heresy to say this here but there are apparently OTHER musical instruments you can learn to play!  And if you can pull off multiple career switches midlife, surely that's possible too.

But that's just me wishing for everyone to make music. You don't gotta. Your son the Buddhist probably has a better view.

Works for me.  I can't imagine paying $4k for a new Gibson though.

What is it? Looks like a sort of glossy gray.

Yeah I don't see anything wrong with it, especially since a lot of those parts are not otherwise available. I think it's great.

Gibson Basses / Re: Oops... I did it again. 2016 ES Les Paul Bass

There are several ways to wire up two volume knobs.  Some of them have the volumes behaving more independently, some of them have the behavior you describe.  Some googling led me here - these are diagrams for les paul guitars with a 3-way selector.  Don't know how the ES LP bass is wired, but you might be able to figure out if your ES is wired similar to one of these ways and then see if you can rewire it for one of the independent volume options:

Merry Christmas everybody! Hope it was a NBD for somebody!
And if not - just play the excellent one(s) you already have!
New toys are fun, but playing music is better. Ho ho ho!

The Bass Zone / Re: Do we like these? (Suzi Quatro Greco bass)
« on: December 21, 2017, 11:18:50 PM »
The only Greco I know is the bird I have, a more conventional TBIV copy. It looks nice, plays well, and sounds good, although has less treble than a real 60s bird.
I got that one for about $500 over ten years ago and thought it was a reasonable price.

I will not be baited into discussing silly notions like Simon Philips being a good match for The Who :-o

Instead I will say thanks DMN for posting another great Zep track. I never realized there was 8-string on this album! I had assumed there were doubled guitar lines, but this makes much more sense sonically, and now I can't un-hear it :)
And of course well documented on the interwebs now that I'm looking: http://www.led-zeppelin.org/studio-and-live-gear/860

Uh. The one I posted was a Keith Moon recording.  Simon Philips was nowhere involved.

Speaking of the Ox, how about the "lead" part and solo on this one?  (Sounds like there is a more conventional bass part overdubbed too). I'm not sure if there are other recorded examples of Entwistle on 8-string.

Heck yeah, you can barely buy any pair of good pickups for that.

Funny. I'm sure someday the Classic IV will (again?) be regarded as highly desirable among the cognoscenti...

I'm old enough to remember people talking about how "bad" the Fender instruments of the era were (late 70s).  Now a beat-up 1979 P goes for $2k on reverb while a brand-new American Standard P is little more than half that. And it's not like seventies Fenders are rare. They just got old, and thus "vintage", and thus better. Wonder if that will apply to current Epiphone models someday.
