    I almost have the same fan. You can literally throw a tennis ball through the guard.

    Like this one?

    Hello ladies

    I almost have the same fan. You can literally throw a tennis ball through the guard.

    That fan is quieter and moves more air than any modern fan I’ve owned. I think it’s from the 1940s.

    Plus, I can get my fingers in there.

    I wonder if GG Allin coined the phrase, “The shit’s about to hit the fan”?

    Likely. Mine is the same. It’s the best! I believe that mine is from the mid to late 50’s, because it made a cameo in the movie Psycho.

    I tend to hit the strings a little too hard with my right hand when I’m playing. Been trying to break the habit, but old habits die hard!

    So, I ordered some wood samples and am going to make some of those fancy finger ramps to help prevent me from digging in too hard.

    From top to bottom:

    Bubinga, Bird’s Eye Maple and Wenge

    29C0210C-62DB-4FB5-95D4-6C4DFFD99636

    Thought I’d use the Wenge for my JB, but I think the Bubinga would match the Old School Tobacco Sunburst better.

    Might stain the Bird’s Eye black and use it on my Frankenbass.

    The closest I’ve gotten to using a ramp, was my old ’83 Aria Pro II SB Elite 1.

    The pickup was curved, and I always played directly over it.

    Very comfortable.

    Radiused pickups are underated.

    Sitting here like uninvited company.

    Slightly off topic, one thing I don’t like about the SB-1 is the pickup shape. The rounded magnet covers with the square base is super uncomfortable on the thumb.

    Here’s the DIY wenge one I had on my Crescent Moon bass for a year or two:

    I’m just glad that your bookmarks have “Daisy Duke Picking up the Soap”

    Slightly off topic, one thing I don’t like about the SB-1 is the pickup shape. The rounded magnet covers with the square base is super uncomfortable on the thumb.

    For finger style, this is the Kilo issue. If you use the pup for a rest, it puts you way back in the tension zone… Which has a massive effect on tone, and if you dig in hard, as is the current topic here, your fingers will cry.

    In our  early Kilo discussions, I referred to it as a “one trick pony”, which Bonin semi disagreed with. To be accurate, if you rely on the pup locale for finger style, then it’s a one trick pony. If you can use air as a rest, then it has a lot of flexibility.

    I dig in very hard, with heavy gauge, stainless stings and high action. Even after all of these years, by the time were done the second set, my fingers are screaming and bleeding.

    THATS WHY YOU NEED A FIVE STRING!

    It gives you a thumb rest anywhere you want!
