I know these current production 'Newark St. Basses' re-issues are supposed to re-create the originals, but for me they pose a few problems:

a) Obviously they lost the blueprints for these with TWO pickups . . . .

b) I guess it's a nice stylistic touch to have TWO thumbrests ( . . . which confirms what I always thought, that a lot of guys who played these in the old days sure sounded like they had all, or obviously, TWO thumbs) and the bridge saddles made out of the same hardwood, but it's 2015 already . . . WOOD bridge saddles? On that funky little bridge? Really?

These aren't really my cup of tea (would have never known, right?), but honestly, at least sell parallel versions of these things built like a real bass, wouldja? A real bridge, two pickups, real keys. Or better yet, make a Squier version, it would turn out right.

SO, for the Guild Monday Morning Meeting, here's the talking points:

a) Shoot your web designer.

b) Get Phil's picture in there, we've run Barry Gibb's pic in TWO places.

c) The 'Product Pagge' tab needs work, troubleshoot that 'SPELLLEEE CHICKER' program.

d) Find the 'two-pickup' blueprints so we can shut that nut up on the ALEMBIC chat room. Call Babicz and HipShot.

e) See if one of the New England state highway departments is interested in some wood bridges, cheap. We'll pay the shipping.

There. I feel better.

That was at the High Sierra Music Fest in 2007 and it was 115 degrees out. The weird stripy thing around my neck was actually an old shirt I ripped up and stuck in an ice water bucket for a while to try to stay cool. Much fun, but kind of brutal.
