  1. [quote name='miles'tone' timestamp='1484812409' post='3218584'] I second that emotion [/quote] She's a beaut in all respects, fo sho Her twin is being completed at the minute [url]http://basschat.co.uk/topic/298739-shuker-p-bass-ii/[/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/RfnWVE][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/R8dL7a][/url]
  2. Very tempting, even though I have no current use for it
  3. Our live set is diversifying and a fretless is becoming very useful, tried it with my fretless ray but the sound is just too different from my Shuker Nr1 so I'm scoping out a fretless PJ to complement my Nr1 & Nr2 Shuker P basses...then I really am done...I think... Here's the top wood, Burr Elm rescued from the great Sheffield tree cull by a friend of Jons' [url=https://flic.kr/p/Rfu4SJ][/url] The body will be swamp ash again to keep the core sound similar to my fretted P basses. Seymour Duncan SPB-1 as per my other basses but adding an SJB-1b at the bridge so I can mix it in occasionally for that extra mid fretlessy-ness. Ebony fingerboard cos Jon has found a lovely piece of dark Ebony.

  6. As my first Shuker P turned out rather spectacularly (http://basschat.co.uk/topic/276145-shuker-p-bass-78-clone/page__fromsearch__1) I managed to convince my lovely wife that a second one would be a good idea Teensy bit different this time, same finish, same hardware and electrics, body made from the same piece of swamp Ash but this time with a flamed white Ash droptop and a stained Sycamore pinstripe as well as a Rosewood fingerboard, I love a Rosewood board... this will be the veneer for the top [url=https://flic.kr/p/RfnxrA][/url] gonna use this bit [url=https://flic.kr/p/RiRDfK][/url] swamp ash for the body, from the same piece as my Nr1 [url=https://flic.kr/p/RfnxiE][/url] very lovely looking rosewood for the fingerboard [url=https://flic.kr/p/RiRDhi][/url] body shapes all cut and ready for carving/bending/glueing [url=https://flic.kr/p/Q59zaM][/url] neck underway [url=https://flic.kr/p/RfnxtE][/url] sneaky peek pre-carve commencement [url=https://flic.kr/p/Q59Ar4][/url] body carve started, chamfer done, top bent into shape and all glued up [url=https://flic.kr/p/RiRDhP][/url] body carve just about done, looking sweeeeeet!

  7. [quote name='mcnach' timestamp='1484646160' post='3217053'] oh god... I'm in love. THAT is just perfect. If it sounds and feels maybe 10% of how it looks, it would be a superb instrument... wow. [/quote] most kind, she's all over this album if you fancy a listen...[url]https://thefargorailroadco.bandcamp.com/album/this-ones-for-you[/url]
  8. [quote name='ROConnell' timestamp='1484647608' post='3217070'] Looks beautiful! How about some pics next to her older brother ey? [/quote] Now that's an idea, no idea why I have no pics of them together!! Will sort that pronto

  11. This sort of thing... http://basschat.co.uk/topic/276145-shuker-p-bass-78-clone/page__view__findpost__p__2982411
  12. That is a lovely fretless sound on't vid
  13. Here's to happy mistakes and experimentation
  14. My Shuker P is incredible, so much better than any F I've tried. Love it so much I want a fretless PJ to match Orange amps (valve) and cabs Obbm cables Yorkshire pudding
  15. [s]For sale, my spectacular 90s Stingray fretless! The serial number dates the bass to 1994 (yes it's 'that' age when the bridge had the string mutes!). It was originally a fretted bass but a previous owner has fitted the bass with a 1997 EBMM fretless neck. The two have married perfectly and have produced a magnificent bass. The neck is constructed from a rather nice piece of birdseye maple as were most Musicman basses in the 90s, the fingerboard is, as expected, Pau Ferro as all MM fretless basses. Condition wise this beauty is virtually pristine with only a minor scuff under the forearm and a couple of tiny marks on the end of the headstock, I've tried to capture these in the pics (see below). Currently fitted with schaller strap lock buttons, comes with its original hardshell Musicman case and is currently fitted with La'Bella 45-105 flat wound strings. I can also happily leave the minotaur leather strap in the case as it looks especially dapper with the bass Weight 9.8lb. I bought it because I couldn't afford a Wal fretless and it really does sound and feel superb, nails 'the Pino' and several other fretless tones with ease. Am only selling because the active-ness of the sound doesn't quite work with the deep passive roundness of my main Shuker P bass for the band so I'm wanting to have a fretless PJ built to match Photos...

Most likely no trades as I need cashish to fund my fretless build [/s]
  16. This still here and whereabouts in UK are you?
  17. Save rehomed my lovely NXT4 for me in a really easy, low stress deal. Lovely guy, great bandmates, excellent bc'er. Highly recommended
  18. [quote name='Srwu' timestamp='1459281427' post='3015148'] Hi Andy What gauge are the strings please? Thanks [/quote] Hiya matey, As Hutton rightly said above, 43-56-70-100 http://www.stringsdirect.co.uk/strings-c1/bass-guitar-strings-sets-c34/thomastik-4-string-jf364-jazz-stainless-flatwound-x-long-scale-bass-strings-p845/s887?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=thomastik-infeld-thomastik-4-string-jf364-jazz-stainless-flatwound-x-l-thomjf364&utm_campaign=product%2Blisting%2Bads&gclid=Cj0KEQjwz-i3BRDtn53Z5Z7t4PUBEiQA23q2AG3cdlKf5VsNJ46Q2b-gmiBM3-6c8AIXP4Zpe9Q3zykaAn_Y8P8HAQ
  19. [s]For sale, the set of Rotosound superb strings that were on my db when I got it. They were new on when I bought it and while they look, sound and feel really lovely for pizz playing I need to be able to play arco at times too so have switched them for a set of spiro weichs. The E and A are tapewound monel and the D and G are nylon wound and look a bit like gut strings. E A D G Lovely mellow rootsy sound. [url="http://www.gak.co.uk/en/rotosound-superb-rs4000-double-bass/5890?gclid=CjwKEAjwrOO3BRCX55-L9_WojHoSJAAPxcSPmDn9Ax0R90o9llEjan09R34THELb6vfUqqTEfa3MVBoCBxXw_wcB"]http://www.gak.co.uk...a3MVBoCBxXw_wcB[/url] £120 for the set new, these are barely used and in excellent condition, no parting of any windings and just a little 'furring' of the tail-end silk. Strings are in Sheffield and are ready to post [/s]
  20. progress pic... we now have frets, the neck carve is almost there (he now has my '78 to borrow so he can fine-tune the carve) body has been sanded back to clear coat only and looks rather lovely as-is [url=https://flic.kr/p/FCa3pt][/url]
