  1. SADOWSKY Preamp DI REDUCED!!! £150 Posted!!! In great condition and works perfectly.
  2. KORG X50 for sale PRICE DROP!!! £195.00 Posted!!! I purchased this from Digital Village for well over £500 a few year's ago and hardly ever used it, I thought that I might be able to learn how to play keys, but unfortunately I just don't have the talent so have decided to move it on. It is in fantastic, unmarked condition, and I still have the original box, mains lead, and manual. Collection from Bridgnorth, Shropshire would be preferred, and you are welcome to come and try it for yourself. The Korg X50 is a descendent of the Korg Triton and is capable of producing unbelievable sounds, here are a few YouTube links where you can see and hear just what it can do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRO9x6wswl4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pP6poZjnKEU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGj9YU6LQjQ Here is a link where you can read more about it: https://www.pmtonline.co.uk/korg-x50-synthesizer-display-stock
  3. Exactly this with me, arthritis in my hands so it helps to drop my hand and let it rest a bit, and besides, it's usually only for a few seconds. I also suffer from shoulder problems, so again, it helps to ease the pain. Why do some people stop and have a rest when they are walking? there's usually a reason why they do.
  4. That's right, and to be quite honest, if I had a bass thats finished in nitro then it would wear naturally after plenty of playing anyway
  5. His work looks first class but from what I can gather, you have to send your instrument to France so he can relic it, and I guess the paint has to be nitro. I went onto his website and clicked the English version but it still isn't very clear. 🤔
  6. PRECISION BASS BODY (Alder) IN BEAUTIFUL SURF GREEN FOR SALE SOLD!!! I purchased this body brand new from "Guitars Electric" seven months ago because I was intending starting up a surfing type band, but the band never materialised, so this body is surplus to requirements. I did make it into a lovely precision bass but never gigged it. The Fender neck I fitted to it was a very tight fit and had to widen the pocket very slightly, there is a very small chip (circled in pic 3) near the pocket but doesn't notice because the under-coat is the same colour. Also, the holes which were pre-drilled are fractionally out, so if you want to put an existing neck that already has the holes drilled, then you might have to fill the holes in the neck first and then re-drill them. Otherwise, the body is in great condition with hardly a mark on it. Weighs 4lb 9oz (2.2kg) I've added another pic to show what it was like when I first built it, the parts are not fixed in the photo because I had already taken it apart. Please note: THE SALE IS FOR THE BODY ONLY!!!
  7. Squier Body & Neck £25 Posted!!! NOW SOLD!!! Might be good for someone starting out on a project for the first time. I acquired these some time ago but never got round to doing anything with them, it's dated 2003 but not sure what Squier model they are from, but apart from the obvious "relic'ing", they seem sound.
  8. I think the Nate Mendel has a 41.02 nut, it also has a 7.25" fingerboard radius which I find too curved for me 😒
  9. No apologies needed sir! 😉 I particularly want a P with a J neck, so I thought a custom build would be a good way to go, and judging by all the reviews on here, Limelight basses are top notch and a joy to play, and if I can get one built and I really like it, then I would sell my American Standard which would go a long way to paying for a custom build.
  10. It is for FIVE sets though! 😉
  11. Strange one that, you say that in your opinion, the solo in Comfortably Numb is one of the greatest guitar solos ever recorded, did you not like the song enough to seek out some of their other material? If ever I hear something I like by an artist I'm not familiar with, I have to go on YouTube and look at what else I can find. 🤔
  12. Yes, I would want one made for me which is why I tried Limelight first, I also contacted Bravewood but they said that they no longer take on orders/commissions.
  13. I don't want to deliberately damage my bass, which is why I said that "I'm not sure I want to try it on my lovely American Standard P" and why I want to get one made. I want a relic to fit in with the tribute band I have just joined.
  14. Looks impressive, is it a nitro finish? it's very hard to get a realistic look with modern poly finishes
  15. I've done it on a cheapish squire, but not sure I want to try it on my lovely American Standard P 😮
  16. I want a heavily relic'ed precision bass in sunburst, I contacted Mark at Limelight, but he says he doesn't do sunburst because they are too time consuming. So can anyone recommend a luthier or company that could do a really good job for me at a reasonable price?
  17. I'm after a Sunburst Precision Bass body, any condition considered but must have standard Fender neck pocket dimensions. Cheers
  18. I've googled this but can't find anything, have you got a link please? as I would like to have a look at the spec, Cheers.
  19. I think the problem is that they ARE "Dr Feelgood" and have a right to continue to call themselves Dr Feelgood, one by one, they replaced members who replaced members, but because they ARE "Dr Feelgood", people go along to see them expecting the Feelgood vibe. In my opinion, Steve Walwyn is a better guitarist than Wilko, but he quite often plays long bluesy solo's like in Mad Man Blues for instance, and as good as his playing is, it just ain't Dr Feelgood! I get your point though, Dammed if they do, Dammed if they don't! 😒
  20. I saw the band that call themselves Dr Feelgood after Lee Brilleaux died, Pete Gage fronted the band and was a good frontman, and to be fair, they were pretty good, but I saw them a few year's ago after Robert Kane replaced him, and I must admit, they weren't that great.
  21. Just started a Dr Feelgood tribute with three other Feelgood nuts, we have our first session together in a couple of weeks, and having all played the music in previous bands and knowing their music well, we are hoping it will all come together quite quickly, we are aiming to get the sound and feel as close as possible but we definitely won't be a look-a-like tribute act. We know Dr Feelgood weren't a massive band and lots of people won't have even heard of them, but having played about a dozen of their songs in a previous "old school" R&B band, I know that their no-nonsense, in-your-face music appeals to many ,and certainly got people up dancing. We are not looking to play anything more than local pubs, clubs, and maybe the odd local festival, so we know we won't make money out of it, but we will be playing the music we all enjoy. 😉

  24. Yes I have tried that but its still too difficult and painful, unfortunately, I have a very short pinky. Here's a photo of a hand similar to mine
  25. Apparently Sparko developed rheumatism in his hands in 1997 which meant he could no longer play, so I think my mind is made up, I will do it my way because I already suffer from a bit of arthritis in my fingers and I certainly don't want to aggravate it 😮
