I passed through Gore twice in the early 1970s, on a journey to and from Bluff. I remember a landscape very different from most of the rest of New Zealand, which is a beautiful country with magnificient scenery around every other corner.

Whenever I think of being down Gore way, I have flashbacks of the desolate landscape scenes out of Mad Max. For me there was something spooky about that part of NZ. I would go back though to revisit Invercargill, which held a lot of charm for me. I wonder of the good citizens of Gore have ever considered a name change for the town following the Al Gore thing.

Add bass #13 to my list: an Electra Phoenix X640! I think it's an '81, but I haven't looked up anything on how to read Electra serials so that's just a guess. The serial is 011063. I'm curious what this color is called, since the catalogs over on the electra page don't mention any sort of burst, and this is red/maroon around the edges and natural in the middle. It's a very nice bass, two p-bass pickups, active on/off switch, phase reverse, and a kill switch for some reason. The middle knob doesn't seem to do anything, and the center detent on it makes me wonder... the volume and tone knobs work fine. It's also an older Phoenix, with the pickguard on it. Strangest textured pickguard I've ever seen. Also the finish on the body itself is not smooth... the woodgrain can be felt through it! I like it. It's extremely light, possibly as light as a Rail. Certainly lighter than its brother next to it, the Spectrum GT.

Nice... hey Warrn if you ever wish to * ahem * sell one of those basses, let me know. Not much luck finding a nice Mats bass up here.

One of my kids is looking for a bass.

Oh man, sorry to say but I'm unlikely to ever part with one. I would say to check eBay more closely, or I can keep track of what goes through Tim and Terry's music shop here as they recently had an Electra Westone X635 (basically a Spectrum ST, I sold my friend on it) and a Pantera X750 (still there last I checked, price tag is $250 but it's a little beat up and looks like somebody bleached the fretboard). I'd be willing to be the middle man if you can't get something through eBay (there have been a few nice Phoenix (Spectrum) basses recently).

And I will echo corsair, Stein, we need pictures!

Yesterday I bought a BC Rich Mockingbird bass (~2002). My first bass. It had been heavily gigged, and stunk of beer and cigarettes. Naturally, I took it apart, cleaned everything put it all back together. I restrung it with a set of Rotosound strings. It RUMBLES nicely, but I had to fix the intonation and action a bit. Some of the frets show wear, but that'll have to wait. LOTS O FUN.

Hi Warn,

I love your Rail's... Never had the pleasure to try one.. I would really like to get one some day, never saw one local...

Oh wow. I want one!

Are you talking about a Vantage?...

Also, your T-45 should be a major tone monster.. I have a T-40 dual blade pups from 79-80 and it is just amazing.... They dont make them like they use to....

The Rails blow most people away because no one expects them to have good tone, but they'll beat out a lot of solid body basses. I think it has something to do with the tuned steel rails, but I can't say for sure.

And any bass in your collection would be nice to have, Vantage or otherwise. They're all beauties!

The T-45 was the product of having nothing to do one day and heading over to Sam Ash and just playing every bass in reach. I was about to leave when I found a rack of basses somewhat hidden in the aisle next to the PA systems, and the T-45 was hanging on the back of it next to a roof support pillar. Picked it up, plugged it in, and was sold on it after strumming the open E just once. I played it for about an hour, just blown away by the thick tone. They only wanted $300 for it, and it came with an old padded gig bag (where I later found a strap buried in the pocket!) I was pretty astounded that it outperformed the $1200+ basses on the rack.
