  1. This was shared by Martin Ware on his Facebook page and although I've never heard of the band, I'm loving this cover.
  2. This happened to my Fender Showmaster. I fitted a Tremelno system into it and it absolutely killed the tone - it became boomy and sounded awful, and so was removed pretty swiftly. These days I just use it with the arm removed and have all but forgotten that it's actually got a working trem.
  3. Just backing up what you posted at the top - I had a re-issue with the Gotoh bridge and that definitely had wider spacing (it also had a separate battery compartment on the back) - so looks like you've got an interesting one there. The only reason I let my one go was because my other bass was a 5 string Spector Euro with fairly narrow string spacing and I found the difference between the two a bit of a pain - so I've got to admit, I'm liking your one!
  4. Do you know, I've never ever looked at the MSG line. Having looked now though, they look really good - and just when I thought I was going to have a GAS free 2020 - Damn you!
  5. I thought that even with that in mind, after taking into acount selling and delivery fees, etc, I'd probably still end up with a similar amount if I just stuck them on eBay on a £1 deal or on here for free (being less than £50) than if I tried to sell and post the bass. It all depends what the bass is worth I guess.
  6. You've got me digging around the internet now - yes, the serial number (S030510207) does seem to indicate that it was made in the Korean Samick factory in May 2003 which would tie in with when I bought it and my recollection of where I thought it was made. How much is it to put a bass up for sale here - I should know but it's usually me doing the buying!
  7. Yes, bought it new from Sharron Music (long since gone out of business) in Hythe. Can I PM you a photo to see if you think it's worth putting it up for sale?
  8. That looks very similar, although mine's a 4 stringer with a different bridge (Hipshot style, finished in satin to match the tuners and knobs), a lighter (natural ash?) body finish and "Duncan Designed" branding on the pickups. I really don't want to post any pictures, etc, for the reasons given earlier, ie. I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to sell it without paying my subscription but then I really have no idea if it's worth trying to sell it? What do you think - worth buying a subscription and giving it a go?
  9. Oddly enough, that's exactly what it is. I'm not sure of the model, I've never seen or found another with the same MM/J configuration and Duncan Designed pickups.
  10. That's what I was thinking. New, I think it was about £400-£500 about 15 or so years ago but I think I'd probably be lucky to get £150 for it despite it being a lot better than most budget basses you can buy today. By the way, what's the threshold for paying for ads on here?
  11. I have an early 2000's Aria bass guitar that I used to keep as a spare, a surprisingly good bass actually but probably not worth very much (I don't want to go into too much detail about the bass in case it looks like I'm trying sell it through the back door). Taking into consideration the cost and hassle of shipping a bass, would I be better off selling it as a whole or stripping it and selling it for parts instead (Duncan Designed MM and J pickups, 3 band active eq etc)?
  12. I love Barber's Adagio for Strings. Strangely, my introduction to it was via a computer game called Homeworld where it was used as the background music for the game. The game also featured a theme song called The Ladder which was written and performed by Yes - and the game itself was pretty good as well.
