  1. Hi lovely bass. Straight swop for my 2005 us s1switch jazz in one year only Candy chrome red/black/maple With add on mint green scratch plate and chrome fender ashtrays? Mike up in Fife
  2. Mint green see the custom shop 60s P that came out a couple of years back. Just looks great!

  4. Hi, purely from that pic it looks like a refin to me. My Musicmaster neck was stripped and stained dark so isn’t a helpful comparison but my early 70s P is lighter and smoother but with plenty of age related dings.
  5. Hi Scrumpymike, thanks for your observations, good to get your experiences. I replaced the strings and actually the previous E didn’t match the rest of the set that were on, it being heavier than the rest. Take your point re neck reaction so will revisit tomorrow once they’ve been on for 24 hours and see what it’s like then
  6. Hi, yes it is a short scale set. Cut a few inches beyond wrap point and tucked into hole in tuner
  7. Thanks NJE and Hooky (surely not Peter ‘Imself ...?) that was my first reaction but somewhere in my memory I think there have been some comments about short scales having issues with flappy E strings so was just wondering if there was a more generic issue. Will certainly get in touch with Rotosound to see what they say though
  8. Afternoon all, have just restrung my 1972 Fender Musicmaster bass with rotosound 66 roundwounds - 40-90. The A, D and G strings all sound fine but the E is a bit duff. Any thoughts on what’s causing this, or what works for you? Previously had heavier strings that seemed to work fine.
  9. There’s one on gumtree right now in wales

      Just spotted! Bit steep however. £250 yes but £400 is way above what they are worth

      Howard "the Drummer" from Stevenage regularly advertises one on Gumtree. Most of his gear is overpriced though.

  10. Anyone near Derby can grab a gumtree bargain - looks like a dx in need of some tLC. No affiliation...
  11. Stuart Morrow used a Thunder when in New Model Army -see the Marquee live footage from 85 I think. That’s a pretty good endorsement
  12. And another one... just did a deal with Karl for a pickup and I think we’re both winners! One of the best, thanks mate. 5 star recommendation!
  13. Yep put them in my 73 p bass when originals were getting a bit tired/scratchy. Lots of playing through headphones but love them. Sounds like a p should.
  14. Crank up the treble and play Stranglers bass
  15. I believe you could buy a fretless neck alongside the fretted bolt-on necked bass at one point when new. I’d really like to try one if anyone has one. I had an aria sb600 in the mid 80s and the Westone isn’t maybe just as good but that might be to do with the thirty years wear n tear in between times!
