  1. Just thought I'd share this absolute beauty which Alpher Instruments have built for a very lucky customer
  2. I couldn't think of anything better to spend my money on .. I'd be murdered by my wife if I ordered No.3!
  3. Welcome to the Alpher club what spec have you order then?
  4. A GK 1001RB Mark II with a gig bag worth a fair few pennies going for £450 here. These are £750 brand new without the gig bag! Someone is going to get a killer amp here
  5. Please ignore the £1100 at the top .. this is now just for the GK 1001RB II with gig bag for £500
  6. Back up for sale at mega reduced price of £800
  7. Thanks for all the great comments people
  8. [quote name='CameronJ' timestamp='1490960991' post='3269413'] Wow! I imagine that put quite a dent in the old wallet? [/quote] Indeed
  9. [quote name='Lw.' timestamp='1490870613' post='3268620'] Nice looking bass - I bet that bridge pick-up is honky! [/quote] When in middle position, it adds just the right amount of honk he he works brilliantly for my covers stuff.
  10. [quote name='Rikki_Sixx' timestamp='1490870260' post='3268612'] That's stunning, I'll be round in 10 minutes for a go! I think I might have seen a few in-progress shots of this, but the finished article is lovely. Those Aguilar 70's Jazz pickups sound amazing too. [/quote] Ha ha! It's been worth the wait for sure. I'd advise anyone who's in the area to pop in and take a look. They have some amazing bass guitars in stock at the moment as well
  11. [quote name='HowieBass' timestamp='1490863364' post='3268549'] That top does look very 60s paisley style in a way - if you hadn't already named your bass it could have been Purple Haze [/quote] It was that 60's / 70's look I was going for. The spec pretty much was "imagine if Hendrix owned a bass"
  12. [quote name='Mattpt85' timestamp='1490863104' post='3268544'] That is amazing!! I would come to see you just to witness that bass in action! [/quote] Thanks. Not a problem at all
  13. Good morning, I thought I'd share my latest (and 2nd) bass guitar from Alpher Instruments. It's #69, called the Ivy (named after my daughter). The spec is: Alpher Mako Elite 21 fret 34 inch scale One piece roasted swamp ash body Black accent veneer Purple crazy burl top Roasted flamed maple neck Roasted flamed maple fingerboard Luminlay side and front dot markers Aguilar AG4J-70 pickups in 70s location Darkglass tone capsule preamp Roasted flamed maple knobs Roasted flamed maple back panel Hipshot A style brass bridge Hipshot ultralite tuners The combination of 70's pickup spacing and the woods give an awesome, almighty old school bass sound that just sings and resonates! I bridges the gap between the modern top end bass sound I've been so used to (imagine the Flea sound from Californication) and old school classic 60/70's rock and roll (which more suits my covers band playing Creedence, Hendrix, Free etc). It's weighs about 8lbs and is an absolute delight to play. I gigged it the other night and the amount of attention it brought for both its looks and sound was staggering! If you find yourself in West Yorkshire, then feel free to come along and take a look. Also, Alpher Instruments are based about 4 miles away.
