  1. Took this in trade earlier this week, it's everything I'm looking for, but spending time with it has confirmed that I really am a 5 string player. It pushes all my buttons but I keep hitting the wrong strings! P/J config - vintage P pickup, Seymour Duncan J pickup for extra hotness. Pickup toggle switch. Blizzard pearl finish, like a pearlescent aged oly white. Looks amazing. Modern C shape neck. Rosewood neck with pearloid block inlays. '12' inlay at the 12th fret. Hipshot D tuner. Black hardware. TBX tone circuit - acts as a normal control from 0-6 o'clock, then as a bass/treble boost from 6-12. Skull & crossbones neck plate - no garish sig model branding. Made in 2019 and bought in 2020, this bass is only a few months old and has barely left the house due to lockdown. It's in great condition, I've given it a good once over and the only thing I can see is a bit of pick rash on the guard. The finish is pristine. Weight is about 4.1kg using the bathroom scales method. No trades thanks, unless you've got a Barefaced Four 10 plus some cash. Collection from Sale, South Manchester. Postage available in a generic gig bag & box at buyer's cost & risk.
  2. A couple of interesting trade offers but still here type bump.
  3. Needs must, so here's my none more black Stingray 5 stealth for sale. Now £1050 including UK postage. Sounds monstrous, looks awesome. Low action and plays really nicely. I had this strung with DR neons for a while which really popped on stage and proved popular with the punters. Here it is in action at a 'recorded rehearsal' last October. Great condition, a couple of small dings - headstock and back of the body which I've shown in the pics. Currently sporting a rather fetching Manchester bee sticker on the back. I can remove or leave depending on buyer's preference. Weighs 4.65kg but balances very nicely. 34" scale. String spacing is 18mm (I think). Looked that way when I measured it. I can post at buyer's risk in a well used gig bag and bass box. It will be well packaged. Price includes standard UK shipping. Socially distant trial & collection from Sale, South Manchester also available.
  4. Mine arrived the week before lockdown. Still haven't had a chance to try it with the band. Bah!
  5. Our rehearsal rooms are open, but only 2 households per room max, so that rules us out.
  6. That'll teach me not to scroll! 😉
  7. Outdoor gigs allowed soon. No official date but it looks like the middle of the month. The wording looks like rehearsal rooms will be able to open soon too. BBC News - Coronavirus: Pools, gyms, team sport and outdoor gigs to return https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53355001
  8. Just the one, out of the way on the back.
  9. Our rehearsal studio is still saying max 2 households in a room. 😭

    Dave bought some pickups from me. Superb to deal with. Thanks.
  11. Not a lot of overlap, but here's the Jump The Shark set list for our last gig before lockdown. There's the odd non 80s tune in there (every time we drop The Chain someone requests it) but the whole point is an 80s themed set.

  12. Almost new set of Detroit flatwound strings from the Bass Centre. 45 -105. Bought for a P bass that didn't hang around long. Played for maybe an hour total. Trimmed the ends a bit when putting them on but I left plenty of winding around the tuning peg. £20 posted.
  13. It was my mum's. It had been in the house as long as I can remember. When my first child was born she gave it to us with the idea that we could cut the legs down and use it as a feeding/story chair. We got it re-covered at the same time. I've got pics of both my kids from tiny babies on that chair (including possibly my favourite of them both together - see below) and I've spent countless hours sat there with them on my knee reading to them. Basses come & go, but that chair is going nowhere.
