  1. Outrageously good price for an outstanding 6 string
  2. Looks like we're swimming in yamaha 6ers at the moment! I'll bump this a couple of times then it'll be at the gallery from end Jan at which point I'll withdraw from here. Get in there while you can. Sale preferred but offers entertained!
  3. Thanks guys. Apologies in advance for my rubbish photography skills, here are some shots. If anyone needs to see anything more specific then pm me of course. There are a couple of dings as you would expect from a gigged bass but they are minor, I've done my best to capture them in the last couple of shots for transparency... Happy New Year to you all!
  4. Original v1 model in Amber, excellent condition. So this is this first JP model, 34 scale and non-perloid tuners. 24 rather than 26 (I think) fret neck on the v2. All original Yamaha preamp, pickups etc Ebony board, maple neck, ash/maple sandwich body with flame front and back. JP custom inlays in MOP Truly excellent 6 string bass. Sustains like a piano (with the sustain pedal on), very clear and even over the whole instrument, great response. Tonally it's deceptive, always sounds like a Yamaha to my ear but it's very, very flexible. I've used it on many different kinds of gigs and it always just, well works....One of the few basses that gets compliments from others Spacing is just over 18m, very comfortable. It has enough space to not feel crowded neither does it feel wider than the M1 I played the V2 model at the gallery when John himself was there doing a clinic. Other than the scale length the changes on the v2 are neither here nor there imo, I have to say though that I'm not sure the 35 scale helps. In fact whilst its still a supreme bass it's more playable at 34 and the B does not suffer in any way. I acquired the bass from Binky on here. Not sure where it came from beforehand. In any regard it is a cracker. Anyhow enough rambling, you know what this is anyway. So why am I selling? Well despite Jesse-Js assertions to the contrary sometimes it is about the money unfortunately. Sale is therefore best but I would px the bass against a decent quality P or PJ (4 strings and 34 only please) so long as I can still clear at least 1k. Frankly I would prefer not to sell this. It's a classic and whilst I don't play a lot of 6 these days I know I will miss it if it goes. I have a few non-essential internal organs for sale on other sites and if one of these sells first I will withdraw the Yamaha.....
  5. Midi box now gone, otto still available....
  6. Agree, w&t are totally fab and Enrico is a top bloke too. There was a period when quite a few were floating around on bc, much quieter now so nice to see Mr olive making an appearance! Great pics too, really showcases the bass, well done that man!
  7. Midibox gaaaawn Just the Meris. Sonic velvet.
  8. Mint ottobit with box It's awesome, just after something smaller and cool thought it is I don't need the sequencer Srr and bit crush are terrific. The filter though totally rocks, lovely lovely stuff Price includes UK postage. For 260 I'll include a chase bliss trs midi control box
  9. Yes sorry, totally rubbish. Haven't forgotten and hope to add tomorrow. I went off prematurely (again) Meris ottobit to follow soon too...
  10. Gamble, did you bring this bass to a jam at earth a few years back? If so it's a cracker! Deal with confidence, gentlemen bass player
  11. Pics to follow, excellent condition Love these pedals but this one just not for me...
  12. Pics to follow Love these pedals but this one is not for me....
  13. Just picked one of these up, absolutely awesome... Glwts
  14. Sorted for amps but this sounds like a cracking deal!
  15. Nice. I'm no expert either but I think this is the original version. 4s were/are quite rare and, from what I remember, a killer slap bass. If you like that sort of thing of course.... Glwts
  16. Great coms, quick payment, nothing not to like! Good buyer, deal with confidence! https://www.basschat.co.uk/profile/48373-rosshetherington/
  17. Just purchased a rodenburg drive pedal from Luka Took a while for me to get the money together but Luka was very patient and there was excellent communication throughout. The pedal was shipped straight away and the packing was bullet proof, pedal itself is in excellent condition exactly as advertised. Deal with confidence!
  18. I get it. You don't want to feel like you're outside of the disco but things change as life goes on and it's very much the case that we need to be careful how we spend our time because we don't get it back. I think this is very different from the beginning of the end. Might be the beginning of change though - could put you in a better place (especially if you don't need the bangers and mash - which is a nice place to be) I play a lot more these days but mostly doing gigs that don't really float my boat artistically. I like the playing and social side so I keep doing it but frankly if something forced my hand I'd view the glass as slightly half full and make the change. Anyway, if anyone would like to hear more of my life story you can reach me at [email protected]
  19. Now that is some rare, ripe action to be sure. I can't even remember seeing one of these with the case, that hardware itself is pretty unusual. I'm just about to dress up as Don Johnson from Miami Vice and see if anyones left £1300 quid lying around. Love it!
  20. Surely it's more likely you would gravitate to an object with a greater mass? This said I am not a scientist
