  1. @ped I'm looking at shipping with Eurosender but the small print seems to be spelled out here: https://www.eurosender.com/en/shipping-insurance in large print. That makes me a little nervous as the validity of the "top-up" insurance seems overly reliant on the courier's assessment of the situation rather than Eurosender's. Does that sound like a fair assessment?

    StudioMini App

    There's the little Focusrite iTrack Pocket interface. It has built in mics. Never used the feature myself though, but it gives you something to google!
  3. Sorry, I missed this @big rob. No trades I'm afraid. I have everything I need!
  4. These are excellent headphones. Have a pair myself.
  5. The only thing that comes to mind is "Dance with my father" by Luther Vandross...
  6. And it sounds WAY better than it looks Mike!
  7. Thanks @wright/watt! It's a great bass, nice and understated, and if I didn't already have a 5 string ACG I'd be keeping it without question, but the aim now is to trim down to 3 basses (ACG, wedding present P-bass and my old Aria Pro). Everything else bass-wise is going...

    NBD woes

    Maybe a silly question, but have you tried contacting Ibanez?
  9. No, but if you're not in a panic I could put something together!
  10. Same here @ead... ...damn circumstances...
  11. The clearout continues... A curious one this. I bought this little beauty from eBay where it was listed as a Warmoth Gecko put together by Valley and Blues of Toulouse in the 90s. I'm not convinced that Warmoth were involved in any way as the body shape and neck construction don't match any gecko I've ever seen (although I don't admit to being an expert on anything Warmoth!). What it is though, is a really high quality bass for the money. Bartolini USA pickups and preamp, high quality headless hardware (looks like ABM - I've seen the same bridge on Sei basses, big money items!). I believe from the headpiece shape that it can handle both standard and double ball strings. Maple and mahogany(?) neck with an ebony fretboard. The body is 3 pieces of what I can only assume is ash with 2 stringers of mahogany (again, only a guess). 34" scale, 17.5mm spacing at the bridge, although there's some adjustment in that if required. There are a few little scrapes on the back and front of the body and some buckle rash. On the back of the neck the finish has seeped into the center stringer and left what looks like little finish voids, but I don't feel them when playing it. Neck is otherwise perfect. Someone has given up on the original rear strap button and installed another just next door... It feels great to play, balances really nicely, I'll confirm weight over the weekend but my calibrated arm leads me to believe it's in the 9lb region (now confirmed by my digital luggage scales! 8.8lbs/4kg). Sounds nice and punchy and better than the price would lead you to believe. Gigbag included. The more I play it the more I like it so take it away before I change my mind... Courier is fine at your expense.
  12. Thanks @Clarky! Just passing along the cracking deal I got on it.
  13. Heavy heart this one. Bought around this time last year as I was in another wavering back and forward between 4 and 5 string phase. But the time has come to strip my gear right back to the bare bones and, as much as I love this bass, the ACG Recurve 5 I have just pips it at the post and was made to my specs. Alder body, ash top, full wenge neck, gotoh tuners, ACG filter pre with passive tone and battery indicator. Does a rather splendid Justin Chancellor impression if that's your thing, but can do pretty much everything besides! Bass was serviced by Alan Cringean before I took ownership of it. There are a few few little marks along the top edge of the fretboard that are difficult to photograph, otherwise it is in perfect shape. £900 including hiscox case. Courier no problem at your cost. **EDIT: As I'm on the clear out journey I'm not accepting trades on this one.**
