  1. 😁😁😁 If you ever feel that you'd rather have a rosewood UV70 I'd be happy to swap. πŸ˜‰
  2. Bump. As things stand at the moment I shall be moving to the far west within the next few weeks so if anyone wants this then act now. It's a long way to Penzance to try it out. 😁
  3. Does anyone know what the nut width is and the string spacing at the bridge? I have a set of Labella flats on an Ibanez Mikro. They fitted perfectly.
  4. Bump with additional trade options.
  5. Welcome. In which part of my home county do you reside?
  6. Spector Shorty Ibanez Mikro
  7. I'll be interested to hear how you get on with this. I must confess I was tempted myself.
  8. Modified Lakland Duck Dunn circa. 2008. 1996 MIJ 50th Anniversary version
  9. Labella short scale flats have no silk at the ball end and blue silk at the headstock end.
  10. Here you go Stew. 01 Ever played a gig sitting down? Yes, for a few years after a radical prostatectomy (sorry, too much information). Livened things up by fitting a butt-kicker to my stool so I could feel the bass. Nice. 02 Ever gigged on a different instrument? Trenance Infants, Newquay, Percussion Band on triangle 03 Ever shared a stage with a musical hero of yours? Not exactly a musical hero but once jammed with Denny Laine. 04 Any fan ever had a tattoo of your band's logo? No 05 Ever signed an autograph in a dressing room? What’s a dressing room? Oh you mean the men’s toilet. Definitely not. 06 Ever cried on stage? Only in despair 07 Ever worn a hat on stage? Many times; beanies and flat caps. Either to keep warm or keep off the sun. 08 Ever gigged with a band you hadn't met before the gig? Yes it was a bit grim. 09 Ever been in a relationship with a fellow band member? No 10 Ever played in different bands on the same day? Yes at a Farnham Free Music Festival, 2002, depped for a blues/rock band when their bass player was very late then gigged with my own band. Iβ€˜d depped for them before and eventually joined them permanently until there was disagreement over money and I was fired. 11 Ever had anything thrown at you while playing? No. 12 Ever crashed on the way to the gig? No but van broke down and we had to switch vans. 13 Ever left a band over the choice of set list? Yes. It was a start-up and the singer had very fixed ideas about the set list and how the money was to be split so I said goodbye. 14 Ever slept in the venue despite it not being a hotel? No 15 Ever been supported by a band clearly better than you? Oh yes 2005 at Willenhall in Staffordshire. We were headlining but were supported by the Trevor Burton Band (ex Move). They were very good, much better than us. 16 Ever played a gig suffering from some debilitating medical condition? Only alcohol related conditions but that was some years ago. 17 Ever been in a band where the guitarist was your favourite bandmate? My 1964-66 band, the Elite Clique. 18 Ever played in the grounds of a stately home? Some place in Hampshire for a wedding back in 2004. First we set up indoors and then someone had the bright idea of being out on the terrace at the other end of the building so we had to move. A right P.I.T.A. 19 Ever injured yourself on stage? Only my pride 20 Ever been told that your bass isn't loud enough? Yes because being a bit Mutt and Jeff I tend to be either too loud or too quiet.
  11. Both are. πŸ˜‰
  12. Actually I rather like the black. Tort looks fine on my 70s Sunburst P and J.
  13. Better late than never, here are my pair of Metros.
