  1. Just done some business with Gareth. A pleasure to deal with. Bomb proof packing and excellent comms made this an easy transaction. I would definitely trade with him again.

  4. Hello. I have a headless beauty for sale; American Maple with a walnut satin finish. Neck-Thru design, The fingerboard is made from Rosewood, It has 24 frets ,Pearl Dot Inlays and Black Hardware.The bridge is a locking Steinberger licensed bridge. It is strung with Double Ball End strings (045,065,085,105,125) 2 Custom-design EMG Single-Coil pickups , Controls: Active Preamp w/ Dual Vol, Stacked Bass/Treble cut/boost, active/passive switch . Width at Nut 46mm Width at last fret 62mm It includes a Rockbag. This bass is very well constructed, sounds very clean, offering a wide range of tonal possibilities, with a strong and deep, bright punchy sound. Ive used this as a travelling bass and a gigging bass too. The only mark I can find is on the Hohner sign situated on the front. ( see pics ). Pick up from hull or can be posted at cost to you. Cheers
  5. 2 reasons mate. Its a different bridge to Johns original, and its easier to set the action with this system. Cheers
  6. Hi. I'm back home tomorrow, so il post headstock pics then. Weight wise, its approx the same as my Aria SB1000 if that helps? No scales.
  7. Hello. For sale, John Entwistle Fenderbird copy. Spec below: Mine was built by Neil Shoemark of NS Custom Guitars in Baltonsborough Somerset. (Now retired) c2008/9 The finish is suposed to look like John Entwistles Peter Cook Explorerbird as it is now, Fiesta red faded to salmon pink. The body is made of mahogany and it's template was cut from John's Peter Cook original. 60s and 70s Thunderbird pickups were very hard to find then as we were still getting used to trading with our brothers across the pond. I tracked down a pair of Gibson TB Pus ceramic pickups that are essentially Gibson Thunderbird pickups and were indeed fitted to the Epiphone Elite Thunderbird as standard. They were also used on Gibson's Les Paul bass. The bridge is a Gotoh roller bridge and tailpiece. Very effective - intonates well and coupled with the custom gold machineheads keep the instrument in tune well. The electronics are 500k cts pots with vintage wires, a Switchcraft jack and an orange drop cap. The neck looks like a Fender and was bought as such from eBay in the States - several techs have since thought it to be Allparts pre official Fender licensing was granted. Gibson vintage top hat knobs and Schaller strap locks complete the tech run down. it balances well when strapped on and is a dream to play. Slight lacquer mark on pocket, fully checked, repaired, but no problems. It comes with a brand new Thomann gig bag. Postage extra. Cheers
