  1. I don't blame him for doing it but I do feel he should let buyers know if he bought them as decorative/damaged instruments.
  2. Spotted the D stamp on the heel of several of the basses this guy is selling, mostly lefty stuff but if he is reselling the Thomann decorative stuff without informing the buyer then that seems like a really %&£$^$ thing to be doing http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-LEFT-HANDED-FENDER-JAZZ-COPY/282054218869?_trksid=p5411.c100167.m2940&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140131123730%26meid%3Da47d42752f8c4bbbbc0b13a441818052%26pid%3D100167%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D13%26sd%3D282054226466
  3. Stop making this thread about you, we all know you play for a living, how could we not. You tell us in what seems like nearly every post! OP posts a great vid of some people having fun playing great music and yet again, Blue. Jesus wept!
  4. Thanks for the links, has led me down an afternoon spanning rabbit hole! some really great stuff

    Precisions

    Had this since Christmas but wasn't sold on the white guard that came with it. Got this tort one on ebay for little over a tenner and it finally looks like I wanted it to . Fresh set of strings and a setup and together with the new pickguard it's like having a new bass again!
  6. If it's the seller I think it is B stock tends to include instruments that were not deemed acceptable by the first buyer and they just chance their arm on someone else taking it at a discount. Send it back for sure if there's an issue with the truss rod.

    [quote name='spongebob' timestamp='1458838943' post='3011450'] I've just been learning 'I Want You Back' for a band - never realised there was so much going on in there, it's amazing. About a thousand great ideas in a 3-minute pop song.[/quote] Might just be my favourite bass line ever, wonderful contribution to the song and just a pleasure to play.
  8. That does sound really nice, I've bought and sold quite a few OD pedals looking for the right one and I think this will be next on the list. Thanks for the heads up, hadn't heard of it before.
  9. There's something very honest and almost endearing about that bass, so much so that I can't help but like it.
  10. If there were issues he knew about but failed to disclose or his advert contained lies then the small claims court will side with you. Proving this is obviously tricky and unfortunately the biggest risk in private buying. A post on the speed, plod and the law section of the piston heads forum will help if you feel he has been dishonest and wish to pursue it.
  11. I subbed to him a couple of weeks ago, some good videos and often not something I'd otherwise have looked at or learned. Good stuff.
  12. [quote name='krispn' timestamp='1457570099' post='2999833'] Yup my thoughts exactly.[b] It's a statement of intent a bass like that![/b] [/quote] Not only true but what a great way to put it
  13. I can't say I've tried it but you're not wrong when you say it's looker. Wow! first bass I've had serious GAS for in quite some time, that is stunning!
  14. I'd say Motörhead and Billy Idol, I've seen more bands than I can remember in venues of all sizes but those two stand out as by far the loudest I've ever seen.
  15. [quote name='chris_b' timestamp='1457186421' post='2996131'] Love the look on the guitarists face at 6:00 when he looks around expecting to see the cones popping through the front of the cab. [/quote] I think he's just turning away in embarrassment at having to see the bass players 'sex face'
  16. Not for me, I'd look even more of a tit than I usually do rocking one of those. I do like the design though, pretty cool looking basses.
  17. Stingray for me too. Love the look, feel, neck profile and bomb proof build quality. I love the way they sound when other people play them. Saw a solid originals band last week and the 'ray the bassist was playing sat really well and had a huge presence which really worked for their three piece setup. I just really like everything about them except the way they sound when I play one. Maybe I need to try a 2 band eq one...
  18. More a sense of humour failure, it was clearly a light hearted comment and well worthy of a laugh.
  19. Stunning, seen some great looking custom shop efforts before but that might just be the best looking one I've seen. Congrats on the acquisition!
  20. Thanks for the recommendations! much appreciated. Unfortunately the little guitar shop guys were at the guitar show today, but it sounds like I'd be better off waiting for them than trying PMT.
  21. I can listen to and enjoy music at reasonable low/medium volume levels but I'm definitely with the OP on this one. In the right mood with the right music it can be such a visceral, almost primal experience to just enjoy music with that physical force. Of course it shouldn't be done too often and in an antisocial/obnoxious way but when you get the opportunity to do it without annoying anyone else it can be fan bloody tastic!
  22. Or failing that, can anyone personally recommend somewhere in Birmingham for a setup? The little guitar shop also in the Jewelry Quarter is the only other place I can think of, PMT of course but last time I saw their tech he seemed far more interested in his game of thrones books than doing any work. That time Guitar Spares and Repairs (Joe) sorted me out, gutted that they seem to be gone
  23. I was going to drop my bass in tomorrow but the website says he's closed down. Anyone know anything more? He did great work whenever I had anything that needed fixing or setting up.
  24. [quote name='Kevin Dean' timestamp='1456401718' post='2988567'] At a band rehearsal last night , our keen eared guitarist pointed out that on a couple of covers I was playing a few wrong notes on a couple of intros , & they were tunes I've played in loads of bands & no one else ever said anything , they harmonized , but I can't believe I I've just been playing them parrot fashion & no one has noticed , [b]Firstly my Guitarist is a git for noticing[/b] but correct after checking . Has anyone else done this ? [/quote] He wasn't being a git, in fact he was doing what more guitarists ought to and paying attention to something other than himself. Sounds like you've got a good 'un!
