  1. You're quite correct of course Mr Hunt - EMG it was. Traded it on here some years ago.
  2. I had a black one of these which also had a single Bartolini pickup. Although a 35" scale it doesn't feel it and much easier to play than any other 35" I've played, so don't let the scale put you off. Also, the lightest bass I've ever owned. GLWTS
  3. OK, I'll edit. Just copied the description from The Gallery's website. Cheers, Graham
  4. Due to advancing age and lack of gigs here is my "as new" Sadowsky Metroline 5 in aged white/cream. Purchased used from The Bass Gallery by me in January 2019. (listed in their "sold" items). Briefly the specs are:- Fingerboard, rosewood; Body, alder; Frets 22; Nut 1 7/8 inches; Spacing at bridge, 19mm; Scale, 34 inches; Pickups, Sadowsky; Preamp, Sadowsky 2 band; Weight 8.5 lbs; Controls, volume, pan, active/passive/tone and stacked treble/bass. Will come in an almost new Hiscox case (as in pictures) OR I have an almost new Reunion Blues soft, but highly padded case if you fancy that (cost twice the price of the Hiscox). I have looked in detail and cannot find any blemishes worth photographing. A few light scratches on the pickguard, and I mean light. A beautiful bass. No trade offers please, and the price is fixed. UK sales only please. Sorry, I don't have any sound clips, although there are plenty on Youtube.
  5. Well, we managed to get over the problem, so I now have a used bass I’ve been searching for for four or five years. The deal has highlighted the problems that we are going to encounter when trading used equipment with the EU from 1st January 2021, unless legislation changes.
  6. tgvc Members 1 2 posts Location: Switzerland Report post Posted 22 hours ago I just sold my de Gier Soulmate 5 to Graham. He is a very nice person who made the sale possible with a lot of patience, support and trust. Thank you and have fun with the bass. 1 You reacted to this × Quote
  7. Have just bought a lovely de Gier Soulmate 5 from Thomas. Due to him living in Switzerland he spent a lot of time and effort to get over several problems before we could complete the deal. Great guy to deal with - deal with confidence if he ever decides to sell any of his other great basses.
  8. I think I’ve got over it. Will post when I have the bass.
  9. Thanks hellzero and bluemoon. Pretty much as I expected. I’ve agreed a purchase from Switzerland and we’re jumping through hoops to finalise a deal. If I wasn’t so set on the bass I would have cried off ages ago. I’ll post the results - if it happens!
  10. Has anyone got any experience of buying used basses from Switzerland - duty, VAT, ad nauseum. Thanks, Graham
  11. Cheers PS, someone’s on the ball! Just a bit unsure if anything had changed whilst we are in “limbo” time.
  12. Hi all, Can anyone point me to any discussion relating to purchases of used gear from our european friends - duty, taxes, etc? Ta, Graham
  13. Thanks for this info. I couldn’t find this on my last shipment - probably didn’t look hard enough. Thought the charge was less than expected (Helsinki) anyway. Graham
