  1. Seeking a jazz bass neck to put on my precision. Either maple or rosewood and would prefer Fender brand ideally Mexican but will consider Squier, allparts etc. Cheers
  2. Bass Magazines (Loads of 'em)

  3. Unusual Bass - any idea of make

    Hmmm...interesting then and perhaps will not explore further, thanks all Cheers
  4. An unusual bass I have not seen before and therefore no idea if price is realistic. Even the seller is unsure of the make and I can find nothing under Genie. https://www.gumtree.com/p/guitar-instrument/bass-guitar/1265485497 Anybody seen one before, idea of make or if any good? Cheers

    I have had this happen to me now. Three times in the last two weeks and only on basschat and when on my laptop. Now using my iPad for now.
  8. Any One Do A Royal Blood Cover?

    Our drummer wanted to do a Royal Blood number, can't remember which one, but I bought a secondhand Behringer US600 ultra shifter to boost up an octave quite cheap. I think it is meant for lead guitar but worked well with my bass and through distortion on my Zoom pedal sounded quite like the real thing. Then we decided it was not right for us, mainly because the guitarists felt redundant so we dropped it.s
  9. Fender Jazz US American Traditional SOLD

    Bump with price drop Cheers
  10. Serial Number N901604 dating it 1999/2000 There is limited and conflicting information on the web about the story behind this model which appears to have been put together with a left over 1983 one piece scratch plate and other bits in the US factory. I believe it was the forerunner to the Highway models. I also believe they were export only and were only made for a couple of years. Says made in USA and American Traditional in small script on the headstock. I didn't quite take to the white control knobs and replaced them with usual jazz black ones, which I prefer, but both sets are included. In addition I replaced the pots as I thought weak, being B500k mini pots and a 0.683uf capacitor. I obtained full size 250 pots with 0.47uf cap from KiOgon and certainly made an improvement but the original harness is also included and can easily be swapped back. These are the only two mods made and the bass is in excellent condition. I can find no chips or scratches apart from two of the usual hairline cracks either side of the neck which do not show up on photographs and can hardly be seen. I am the second owner the first, who had until this time last year, was a guitarist and only bought it in case the bassist did not turn up at gigs. Mainly left in the case and explains excellent condition and almost zero fret wear. It comes with a non Fender (one was not provided with this model) but period black tolex covered wooden case which is also in good condition. It has a fast neck, quite light at 9.4ib and sounds just like a great jazz bass. Looking for £450 collect only and not really looking for trades on this at the moment as I have eyes on another bass.

  11. Gibson EB 2013/14

    I will try again as I have a 'gas' to purchase one of the newer Gibson EB basses, 4 string version. Preferably the satin cream or satin fireburst but would be happy with other colours. Ideally relatively local, say 50 miles from Loughborough, Leics. so I can try before I buy although I may consider buying at a distance if too far for me to travel and seller willing to post. Chees
  12. We have just lost our drummer and I am putting the feelers out for a replacement . We are, or were a five piece, with female vocals, two guitarists, doubling up on keys, bass and a missing drummer. We play the usual classic pub type covers from Radar Love to Bruno Mars Locked out of Heaven. We really play for the fun and practice two/three times a month in Silebly near Loughbrough. Pub gig on average once a month but we tend to put the little fee we earn back into the kitty to pay for equipment and drinks etc. You won't get rich playing for us. We are mature although the singer is younger but any age considered. Band is called Velvet www.velvet-online.co.uk for more info. Let me know if anyone you know is interested . Cheers Andy
  13. Fender Precision Bass USA 1997

    Whereabouts are you located please? Cheers
  14. Gibson EB bass

    I have no issue with deck dive on a T'Bird using a leather strap and yes it does twist away from you but if you have it low enough you can position your right leg to compensate for this. This has been my gigging bass for over 4 years and I love the sound compared to my P bass, which has a slower neck and boomy bass sound, and my jazz which has a shallow bass tone and gets lost in the mix. Having said this I too have been looking to try an EB Bass as they look to be the best of all worlds - light, T Bird sound, better bridge and split coil options to sound like a jazz and for the money, look ridiculously cheap
  15. Gibson USA EB13 & Gibson Blackbird

    Great looking EB bass and I just love it finished in white, Shame you are in Spain when I am in Leicester.
