Just a feeler at the moment but I might need a dep for a gig in Kent on 2nd September. The set is mostly Stax and Motown classics. If anyone is interested pm me and we can have a (bass) chat.

We're mainly in Kent and South East London, but if you know of any venues in your manor let me know.

I think The Horns in Watford would be ideal, get a Saturday night there and it would go down a storm.

More to the point, how do you get your strings to follow the curve in the neck of of your bass?

Is this a variant on fanned frets?
