  1. A little optimistic perhaps... by about 120%. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-TRB5-Bass-Guitar/173908971789?hash=item287dc8510d:g:aKcAAOSwrMhcxy36
  2. I have a Duke (and a Hondo Alien). eBay sellers seem to be trying for £400+ , which is about twice what I paid for mine, and seems to be more than people will pay. There aren't many about though. It definitely makes a different noise to a wooden neck; IMO it's more like a Les Paul stepped down an octave than a conventional bass.
  3. Rails are fab (though the balance is a bit strange till you get used to it) I got mine from a member here, it's not going anywhere.
  4. I think it should be fine - though I suppose some brands might be better than others? Please do let us know how you get on
  5. "You will never see something this personal to Lindsey for sale on eBay ... " Yup...
  6. Just a quick query - aren't these 28.6" scale?
  7. Or they might be good for percussion
  8. Those pickups are definitely the right colour for 80s DiMarzios, if my Vox Standard and its more expensive but less interesting cousin are anything to go by. Perhaps that's why the seller thinks it might be a Vox?
  9. No, but I've sold two back to their previous owners Nothing expensive, mind.
  10. Never heard of them, (probably did hear them on Peel show back in the day, but if so have completely forgotten it), but that was fine
  11. Put extra effort into tuning; don't just pick it up and think "oh I tuned it this morning". Otherwise it will mess your head up. Also check your intonation with octaves and harmonics and open strings when you're practicing. Personally, I'm a Mick Karn fan. Much as I love Bakithi Kumalo on 'Graceland', Mick is the man.
  12. I bought some strings. Clean easy uncomplicated transaction, good comms, no hesitation in doing business again. Thanks Pawel
