Thread for posing minor dilemmas that you already know the answer to

I’d just get it and keep both tbh

Bass VI is a six string AFAIK (hence the name) but I also thought it was a baritone so it’s not really quite a bass so I definitely think Eps doesn’t have to drop one.

The old bass is a KSD-705 (Ken Smith designs). Tbh I don’t really get on with five strings, plus it’s a wide 35" scale neck with hefty string spacing so it’s not even a fast player. Also the electronics are a bit rubbish but would be expensive to replace because they’re non-standard J pickup size.

The new one is a Lakland Skyline Darryl Jones. I tried the five string model once and it’s the nicest instrument I’ve ever played.

oh fuck I thought it was a Skyline. They are delicious

It’s not a baritone, it’s EADGBE in the same octave as a bass.

It’s also definitely going nowhere because I love it.

not sure what I expected from @chris-budget


There’s also a shitty guitar knocking about. They’re already taking over the spare room.

Cheer up, goth.


Regift it and give it back to your ma this Christmas.

Got a similar dilemma.

I own three bikes: shit single speed for commuting/shops/leaving; old but very much loved road bike; and new road bike. I can’t really keep all three due to reasons of no space.

Do I:

  • keep all three bikes
  • sell old road bike
  • sell shit single speed and use old road bike to commute to work

Did your mum buy you any of those bikes?

How old is your old road bike?

She did not.

10,000km old. In all likeliness I won’t ride it ever again because of the new bike (which I still haven’t been out on because of the flat).

Urgh, I know. We just don’t have space for 5 bikes in the new flat!

how much do you want for your old bass?

Oh wait your old ones a five string? Sell that fucking shite pal


Finding it hard to gauge the value as they don’t come up for sale very often. Reckon around £450 as it could do with a setup. No idea about shipping costs though.

He’d better hold tight, or he’ll… drop the bass


Strong, strong opinion here.
