  1. Argh! Didn't even see it till today
  2. I need the money, and the space, and I'm not playing it. I suppose I could put a fretless neck in it.
  3. I'd want to know why it's been stripped first, or at least to check the TR, but this might be a nice project: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gordy-Blueshift-De-Luxe-Bass-Guitar-Main-Body-Only/143008237339?hash=item214bf4871b:g:zCAAAOSwV1Vb5qQx

    Re-necked, old neck included. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hayman-4040-Bass-Guitar/113362749608?hash=item1a64f248a8:g:4-MAAOSwn01b5sjh Not too far from me...

    Thanks. Might be a decent buy then...
  6. Not fretless, thank goodness...

    Are these any good? I like the reverse 'burst on the four, but I don't need it and wouldn't play it. OTOH, the fiver might be more my thing.

    Overpriced project Bass

    It's hideous... I think someone here should buy it, as that means it's less likely to show up again

    What features should all bass guitars have?

    Slot-load bridge. (Hat tip: fretmeister.) All other "features" are optional, IMO.

    Unholy Mashup... :)

    'Lost at sea'

    Crude routing previously hidden by a scratchplate, I think.

    Ibanez SRF705-BBF ... catchy!

    The Portamento and the Spectorcore are the only basses I GAS for...

    Anybody know what this used to be?

    Taking the picture, I expect.

    Aaaargh!! Want this but...

    Alternatively you could have a try for this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/192699937826?_trksid=p2047675.m570.l5999&_trkparms=gh1g%3DI192699937826.N36.S1.R1.TR1 Not as pretty, I grant you.
