  1. Andy, I've been a little apprehensive about commenting because it was me who bought The Groove Bass just ahead of you. However it looks like things have turned out very well in the end - that's a beautiful bass you have. Here's the Groove settling in with the existing Energy bass. Feel the start of a wood neck Status collection coming on...
  2. Just bought a lovely Status bass from Martyn. Seamless transaction, quick shipping and bombproof packaging. Many thanks Martyn.
  3. So it's raining and I'm sorting through all my gear getting ready in anticipation of rehearsals starting again and I thought a family portrait would be in order. Been a couple of changes over lockdown but here goes (L to R): MarkBass Little Marcus 800 into a Barefaced Big Twin II 1974 Precision Sadowsky Metro Express Vintage Icon Fretless Trace Elf and Barefaced Super Compact (for rehearsals - because the BTII would be stupid in our wee practice room!) Pedalboard - relatively neat with just a TU-3, Spectracomp and Sansamp
  4. In 35 years of playing, I realised this is only my second white bass. Sadowsky Metro Express, we are getting to know each other.
  5. I have just sold my bass to Davide. Great guy to deal with and he took care of arranging a courier for getting it over to Italy. Great communications and prompt payment. All good.
  6. Bumpity bump. I do need to move this on so I'm open to serious/sensible cash offers.
  7. Pup spacing is 70s. I've toyed with getting some lollipop tuners to further confuse the spec!
  8. Set of 6 tuners taken off a Mex Fender Player stratocaster. Mint condition. Happy to post for an extra £3.
  9. A useful 10 band EQ pedal, the sliders light up when powered on. Used only twice for gigs at a venue that needed some particular frequencies cut out. Works off standard 9v pedal power adaptors but also comes with a handy cable for powering off a 9v battery. Can post for an extra £3.
  10. I have no idea what the fingerboard radius is but it feels quite 'round' which i think means a smaller radius. The neck is definately correct for the '74.
  11. Hi all, up for sale goes my '74 AVRI Jazz, owned by me since new (2018) I've really enjoyed owning and gigging this, but find myself always going back to my '74 P bass. It's a curiosity too! It came from the factory with the specification deviations to the standard AVRI spec as follows: Pickguard - Tort (should be black) Thumb Rest - lower position (should be above the strings) Neck plate - only stamped with Serial Number (should also be "F" stamped) Sunburst pattern - brighter more like a 60's pattern (should be slightly 'darker' '70s pattern) I have emails from Fender confirming that it was a genuine mis-build (see photos) Everything else is exactly as a '74 AVRI should be; poly finish, 70's bridge pickup position, block markers, binding, fender stamped tuners, chunky U-shaped neck (a big surprise for those normally used to super slim Jazz necks). In excellent condition but I have gigged this - it's not been hanging on the wall! , a bit of swirling on the finish, a tiny finish ding on the rear that won't photograph and a wee dink on the binding (pictured). Prefer to meet up rather than ship. No trades but might consider a Stingray (Classics or Specials only). For reference, I raised a thread about the curious spec at the time here:
  12. Terrific bass (previously mine for 6 years) and a great guy to deal with!
