  1. Found this at Thomann showing the three grooves for the E and A, and the four groves for D and G as @BreadBin suggested. https://m.thomann.de/gb/fender_american_deluxe_bass_bridge_4.htm
  2. Nordstrand do a Big Splitman that has small staggered pole pieces in an mm shell. They also do a p with poles to match. Never tried them though so can’t comment on that. If you were to consider anything active Delano do a p with small poles and a hybrid pickup in an mm shell which is half large poles and half small. The hybrid is designed to work as a passive single coil but active as a humbucker. Mught be worth contacting Herrick pickups as they do an mm with single small poles pieces. I haven’t tried them but seen some good reviews.
  3. Ah! Maybe - that would make sense. Just seemed strange to me!!
  4. Interesting. This seller seems to use a minimal amount of letters in the titles of their things for sale and not even ones associated with it! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/her/164002074647?hash=item262f491017:g:jh0AAOSwslJcYB~4
  5. I've got a Dunlop Cry Baby Bass Wah 105Q for sale - nice bit of kit but I just don't use it. In full working order and good condition except for one scratch down the side of it. It still has the protective film on the base. £70 plus postage. All proceeds of this sale will be going to charity. (I bought some bass gear off a lady who was moving house a few years ago and clearing stuff out. As I was leaving she found this pedal and gave it to me - I refused but she said someone might as well get some use from it. I promised her that if I didn't use it I would sell it and give the money to a charity. She asked me to give it to a particular local hospice so that's where the money will be going).
  6. Lovely, in particular the lines on the volute. Marvellous stuff!!
  7. That is really lovely - the binding really sets it off Very nice job indeed. Just a shame it has the wrong number of strings.....😉
  8. Liking the look of this build! I like the look chrome pickups - was recently looking at those Lace Aluma pickups that are available as J and P types. Look completely different but not cheap!! https://lacemusic.com/products/aluma-p-bass-pickup
  9. As others have suggested, I would be inclined to look at the heat and moisture approach. It is quite surprising how big a dent it can fix, and those on your neck are small. I've removed dents before with a soldering iron and a damp cloth though generally from bare wood. It does feel like a strange thing to do and is definitely worth practicing on another piece of wood to give yourself confidence!!! Some folk will use very fine abrasive such as 0000 wire wool or a very fine sanding pad to take the shine off the back of a neck to give a satin finish and make it feel a bit more silky. As usual there seem to be opposing views - there seems to be some people that like using wire wool and others that will say not to use it ever!! If you do use wire wool, just make sure you cover everything you don't want it getting in - pickups being magnetic are always a favourite! Again, you should find details of this on YouTube.

  11. Location was really good as it seems accessible to a good number - attendance of the event was excellent as was the venue itself. Weekends either side would be good in my opinion.
  12. Rothko and Frost look like they do custom inlays, might be worth a look. I seem to remember @Norris getting some inlay made somewhere that looked really good.
