  1. Thanks need a spare bass?
  2. Selling one of my basses, young family need space etc. German Double Bass from around 1900 ish. I suspect a little older, but have no other provenance than the guy I bought it off and it's general looks. It's all in good condition, i've given it quite an overhaul in the last few months. Fixed all the cracks, will finish touching up a couple of spots of varnish before it goes. Just fitted a new bridge and tail piece, and it currently has a prototype of my new end pin design. Some of you will be familiar with my wooden end pins and i've been experimenting with an idea for an adjustable one. Can always swap it out for a traditional end pin if you prefer. And I can do a half price wooden end pin with the sale of the bass. I'm also happy to fit your preferred set of strings and cut the bridge accordingly for your preference. It's currently got D'addario Zyex on it. I'm in Alton Hampshire I don't have a gig bag for it, but I can procure one should you need, costs can be discussed. My wife is due to give birth any day so I'm not in much of a position to travel to you right now, but make a good cup of coffee if you want to come to us.
  3. How can you be so sure? Some advice as to why would be appreciated as apposed to just that statement. I don't want to mislead anyone and as I said simply stating how they were sold to me. Thanks

  8. Parts Jazz Bass for sale. Price Drop To £450 for a limited time..... [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]The body and neck were sold to me as Squier JV series (80's Squier) But the neck was a bit of a mess and the logo wasn't exactly clear. Can't be 100% on provenance. But they are both lovely, slight flame to the neck, plays great. [/font][/color] [font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][color=#282828]Re-finished[/color][/font][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif] with a thin gun oil feel. Body has a few original knock, a real relic'ing [/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]It has a J Retro preamp, I think the pickups are 4jb-8. It's got a hipshot d tuner, but it's one from a musicman, so it doesn't quite match. But works great. [/font][/color] [font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][color=#282828]Lovely bass, but got a baby on the way so need to make some space. [/color][/font] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Can post at buyers expense with neck off for saftey etc. [/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Or pickup from Alton Hampshire, or could arrange a meeting london way. [/font][/color] Offers, or trades considered for a *Cough* Strat *cough* Any questions please ask, or come play her [attachment=249835:FullSizeRender 19.jpg] [attachment=249839:FullSizeRender 15.jpg] [attachment=249842:FullSizeRender 18.jpg] [attachment=249843:FullSizeRender 14.jpg]
