    It would be the Speedy for me too - I think they look nice & chunky on that bracelet.

    The main reason though would be the black date wheel - white date wheels against a black dial on anything but a budget watch just look awful to me.

    I've recently got an S8 & am loving it as an upgrade from my Nexus 4 but I'm having one weird bug/issue with it; I nearly always have my phone on vibrate only (though do occasionally turn it up if I'm expecting a call I don't want to miss) but the S8 keeps turning its ringtone up by two nudges throughout the day - it's definitely not happening in my pocket as I just leave it out on my desk. Has anyone else had this? Or does anyone know how to stop it please?

    Interesting. I've read some of what you're talking about now.

    It obv wasn't HR requiring or sackable bitching but will leave it for the pub from now on!

    Hmm, that line has already been crossed :-/ I'll be careful from now on! I assumed DM's on slack were essentially the same as DM's on things like this/forums & so not likely to attract attention. Thanks @Velocio & @amey

    Someone instigated it at my work; it's a massive time wasting exercise as far as I can see. Does mean you can have some fun chats slagging people off while they're still in the process of doing/saying something stupid but I've found it extremely detrimental to workflow.

    Not sure how it would work as a social thing; isn't it just another forum/chat-room type thing?

    I might be going mad but I quite like the look of the non-ltd Railmaster with the steel dial, would make a nice change from the black dial divers I've been wearing for the last few years! Shame I've just spent all my pennies on a new bass.

    If you're not too far down the snare drum rabbit hole; an envelope filter & an octave pedal would be a fun present for a bassist.

    Are they re-releasing it then?

    That looks great - I really like the Railmasters.

    That the Olympics one?

    I love my Seamaster - wear it every day!

    Yes - it's a Custom Shop '57 re-issue. Essentially I think it's an AVRI that someone at Fender has taken a sander to, possibly has nicer woods.

    I was never sure about the whole relic thing but I had a go on one of those Mexican-made "Roadworn" ones and they just felt great to play, I struggled with the idea of paying the kind of money they want for a "new" Roadworn though. This one came up used at not a huge amount more than the Roadworns and is the nicest example of a P I've played & I've trialed basses from every decade since the 60's in my search.

    It's just awesome to play - "soft-V" profile, gently broken in with the relic'ing, quarter-sawn maple neck. Hand-wound pickup sounds mighty too. One of my bands is quite heavy so it's nice not to have to worry about it getting knocked on stage either!
