  1. Right quick question, can you buy chrome metal covers for standard J type pickups.

      Amazon sell a few. But I doubt if many are original Fender products.

      Will have a look is that the actual pickup cover? not the big metal covers?

      You should put this in items wanted.

      Not sure if this helps, but i made one last week to post a bass within the UK.

      Get two strong cardboard bike boxes from Halfords, and an hour or so with a Stanley knife and some gaffer tape.

      Cut one of the boxes into an oversized guitar case, and cut the other box into sheets/smaller pieces to reinforce the back, front, ends and create a cradle for the neck/headstock. Pack the rest with crunched up newspaper or bubblewrap, and you'll have a free, very light, very strong container for shipping.

      Gear4Music was fine for me when I did this. The buyer paid for a case to be delivered to me and then I used the box to send it to him with the bass inside. Worked out really well actually, with the seller happy with everything!

  4. I cant add any photos to my adverts anymore, says i have run out of space.

     

  5. Just put up 3 of my nicest basses, have to reduce the collection for financial reasons, take a look.

      So its going to be one of the following or both:

      Nightingale 4 string

      Fender flea 

      Or maybe i should trade them 😁

      @big rob - I'd start with your least favourite, or least used one of those two....
      Or if they're equal in both respects, perhaps put them both up for sale, and see which goes first?
      If you sell one at a time, it may not seem such a "wrench"

    4. TheGreek

      TheGreek

      I'm nearly interested in the Nightingale....No I'm not...well maybe if...stop it!!!

      I hate you!!

  7. Hi all,

    Thinking of getting the new Fender flea Active, however i have yet to see one in the UK.

    Does anyone have one and if so what are your thoughts on it.

    Regards

    Rob

      Not seen one myself either. They do look good IMO. And the "old" passive one is a great bass. Lightweight, lovely playable neck, great sound - so if it's anything like that :)
      If can't control your GAS, and end up getting one, let us know what you think

    2. big rob

      big rob

      I will Marc S, i have the passive one too, great bass.

      You might do better to start a thread in the Bass Guitars forum

  8. Need a Jazz bass loaded control plate, someone must have one, must be chrome. 

    1. franzbassist

      This needs to go in the items wanted section.

  9. Hi All,

    Have a Sire V7 on the way but i need a preamp as it is missing the original. 

    Would like a Sire one but if not i will go passive and hopefully stack knob like the 62. 

    Let me know what you have lying around.

    Thanks in advance for the help .

      You could buy a v3 put that preamp in the v7 and keep the v3 as passive instrument

      its the same preamp in all sires.

       

    3. big rob

      Seems an expensive way to buy a pre amp 

    4. timhiggins

      timhiggins

      Not when you consider a John east Marcus Miller pre is almost the same price as a whole v3 

       

  10. Had no idea you felt so strongly about it.............sorry had to be done 

    1. SpondonBassed

      Right!

      If you are going to troll out a textile based play on words on the front page of Basschat just because of Jono's dislike of felt covered cabs you need to be prepared for the consequences.

      Where IS the best place to get felt?

      Spoiler

      The back seat of a car does it for me.
