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

      I bought it when it first came out.

      They played at Wembley arena to promote it, but Lindsey Buckingham quit and they had to get two blokes to replace him.

      Still a good gig though.

  4. No P Bass in the house for the first time since 1976. O.o

  5. Possibly stupid question. Does arrange own courier mean that the seller is always willing to pack the instrument. I'm not missing or assuming something am I? Theres no packing courier service I've been unaware off.

      I think all this started when it became known that certain couriers (Parcelfarce) etc, did not cover musical instruments on the insurance.

      If people wanted to buy something, then the seller would pack it all up and then its up to the buyer to arrange his own courier.

      If it goes missing, the seller doesnt have to prove a thing.

      I dont recall "Arrange Own Courier" ads before this revelation.

  6. After over 30 years using heavy gauge strings (110-50, and more recently 120-50 balanced tension), I got a set of 100-40 today to put on my SB BnG. The bass feels even nicer to play now.

      I am using Rotosound RB50's at the moment. I like them. Mind you, I,m a hard plucker.

  7. What the hell is happening with the weather? Only a week ago my nads almost shrivelled away to nothing in the cold, now it's so hot they're hanging very low and they stink. I thought we were supposed to enjoy a temperate climate in this country? I blame the Russians.

      Its the Russians. Of course they will deny it.
