    Scale length matey?
  2. Just bought Hutton's fretless ray, top gent, kept it on hold for me for a couple of days until I had the cash, packed and shipped super speedy, chased and harangued the courier who were not being particularly helpful and all arrived in pristine order as promised. Many thanks matey
  3. Thanks matey, If anything she's better than my previous sr5, much fuller sounding
  4. Chuffin Norah! That was speedy!! congrats matey
  5. noooooooooooo this is exactly what I want but I haven't got anything near enough cash for it! She's a beauty
  6. [s]For Sale my 2003 Stingray 5 in trans red, received recently on a trade and while she is very lovely and sounds exactly like a stingray5 should (lovely fat bottom with plenty of punch and loads of tones from the preamp and pickup selector) I prefer my 5 strings to be a little longer scale like my ACG Gallus 5 (which is 35" scale). If I had room for both she'd be staying as she's a superb example and plays & sounds great Her B string sounds loads better than the previous ray5 I had and also the G&L L2500 I had recently, much less flabby but just not quite as toit as the B on my ACG. From Ernie Ball customer service: "Thank you for playing Ernie Ball Music Man! Your StingRay 5 was completed on April 18th, 2003." Weight is 10lb dead. ain't she pretty [url="https://flic.kr/p/B7W9ik"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/Aa4gtX"][/url] Frets in spectacular condition, fingerboard clean and even [url="https://flic.kr/p/A9V4QJ"][/url] back of neck unmarked and feeling satin smooth [url="https://flic.kr/p/AsYHJu"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/AsYUGv"][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/B5KyRy"][/url] includes Ernie Ball strap buttons and straplocks [url="https://flic.kr/p/AsYHNC"][/url] her only issue is this chip straight through the finish but the wood underneath is inaffected [url="https://flic.kr/p/AsYTza"][/url] Apart from the one very small chip (less than a 5p piece in length) she's in almost perfect condition. Bass is in Sheffield, price includes UK shipping.[/s]
  7. Steve just popped over to meet his new fretless p bass and to bring me my new stingray5. Super pleasant transaction and he sure takes good care of his toys
  8. Having watched a bit of porcupine tree last night on youtube I have gas for a fretless wal, it sounded sooooooooo good!

    [quote name='eude' timestamp='1447337590' post='2906833'] That really is a gorgeous setup. It must sound amazing, effortless low end? (but weigh a tonne...) Eude [/quote] Thanks buddy I just love it, 360 degree warm bass feelings a tad heavy but we all share the load-in / load-out so it's all done pretty quick anyways

  11. [quote name='Hutton' timestamp='1447329979' post='2906718'] 'On Hold' till the end of the weekend. [/quote] woohoo piggy bank raiding to commence as well as hopefully a fretless p leaving the house to make it all happen
  12. [quote name='Hutton' timestamp='1447174581' post='2905548'] I would definitely give in to temptation Andy. In fact I'm sure I heard the Ray fretless calling your name earlier today! 😀 [/quote] oh darn you and your silver tongue, don't suppose you've got any sound samples of her have you as that might provide the tipping point
  13. Oo I am tempted once I get sufficient cash together
  14. [quote name='Stephen Houghton' timestamp='1446903388' post='2903364'] Cheers for holding until I can get over Andy [/quote] No problem my friend
  15. [quote name='Highfox' timestamp='1446901331' post='2903338'] That's a beauty Off topic but I remember the soho sound house, bought my Trace Eliot gear there. [/quote] Oo nice anecdotal tie-in there matey
  16. On hold until next weekend for Stephen Houghton (1st dibs if falls through is Starman)
  17. [quote name='Powerbas' timestamp='1446753446' post='2902148'] trade with a gibson thunderbird gold edition? [/quote] Sorry bud it's on hold pending cash exchange tomorrow
  18. [quote name='karlfer' timestamp='1446750943' post='2902104'] Bugger, that was quick Andy, didn't even get time to put my Nate Mendel Precision up for sale [/quote] Sorry bud I'll add you to the list of folks interested if it falls through
  19. [s]For sale...my '77 Fender P, black (not a refin) with some sexy wear spots and rosewood fingerboard. Frets dressed recently by Jon Shuker and new bone nut added at same time. She plays lovely now ...the old nut was held together by cardboard Original wiring loom and pups included but not currently fitted (see pics below). Kiogon loom and Seymour Duncan SPB1 pup currently installed (original pup does work fine so you get 2 fully working pups here and the kiogon 'patented' solderless wiring means a quick switch too!). Original covers and thumbrest included. I've replaced all the scratchplate and pup screws but the originals are bagged and included Includes non-original (but looks exactly right) Fender branded G&G hardcase. Weight...measured using the tried and tested 'weigh self with and without bass' gives a very pleasant 8.4lb Currently wearing Labella flats (45-105). Bass is in Sheffield. Happy to consider part trades with cash my way, 4 string fretless, or a Gibson Thunderbird (burst or natural mahogany preferably)...
