  1. Getting quite rare now. Still a great piece of kit. Korg lost something of the charm of these in later versions. I still use mine quite a lot. GLWTS.
  2. Low starting price and no reserve. This could be quite a bargain for someone. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aria-Pro-II-CTB-Series-Fretless-5-String-Bass-Guitar-/125083883386?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  3. If only this was posted 4 months ago. I was staying with a friend near Borth and we went to Portmerion for the day. I'm sure the family would have understood.
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Boss-SP-1-Spectrum-Equalizer-FREE-NEXT-DAY-DELIVERY-IN-THE-UK-/203639042513?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0 Are these really that desirable? Boss have reissued the first 3 compact pedals, including sp-1, in a fancy box for around £750.
  5. Can I just start jogging or something instead?
  6. No one has mentioned for the love of money by the o jays. Classic bassline played by Anthony Jackson. Pick and phaser pedal.
  7. My son's VM maple neck jazz is an excellent bass. I've ABed it against my maple neck MIJ jazz with overwound Lindy Fralins, my maple US Deluxe Jazz V with Noiseless pickups and 3 band Audere preamp and rosewood US Deluxe Jazz V with 2 band Audere and it really holds its own. My only observation is that the pickups sound a little weedy soloed, but I am nit picking here. If that £150 is really burning a hole in your pocket, then look out for some 2nd hand pickups. That said, a quick browse on ebay and basschat shows that 1) there isn't much for sale and 2) prices are a bit silly atm.
  8. Another vote for the Audere. I have a 1997 and 2000 us deluxe jazz and swapped out the preamps about 10 years ago. I have v/v 2 band in one bass and v/b 3 band in another. Very useable frequency range on the eq, the bass adds a real thump to the sound, treble adds brightness, but not harshness and the mid pushes preamp nicely to add some grit. The passive tone is probably what I use most. The 3 way z switch is also useful. Solder free. Took me <15 minutes to fit
  9. Ironically, the University Challenge episode.
  10. This bass certainly has some vintage mojo. It's probably also carrying the bubonic plague.
  11. I think there's a market for a perfect balance novel. Remove all pages from 2 to penultimate, glue the spine back in et voila.
  12. I'll just post this. Genuine Gibson too.
  13. Best thing about that video is John's comment.
