  1. What a fabulous bass! Most of my current employers would probably have an apoplectic fit if I turned up on a gig with that, but it would be SO worth it! 🙂
  2. Lovely. I was also the owner of the Stuart Clayton metallic blue bass for a year or so. I sold it (didn't love the colour, truth be told) then almost immediately regretted it and went looking for another one! Ended up with a Sport 5 headless, and Stefan is in the middle of making another one for me, this time 35" scale, otherwise I'd be all over this. GLWTS.
  3. Custom build I had hoped to get my grubby mitts on by the end of the month delayed by tardy hardware from the manufacturer. Bah humbug.

  4. I was just thinking the other day that you don't see many of these for sale anymore....
  5. That first one is bonkers. You can see where the later ones came from though. Fascinating stuff. Thanks!
  6. Yup! Feel free to PM me if you want more info...
  7. I think that's more due to the exchange rate with the Yen - not good at the moment!
  8. That's dollars, so it works out at about £4800 (plus shipping, VAT, import duty etc., admittedly). Although it sounds like a lot, an L2 or XL2 in very good nick will be around the 2K mark these days, so for a very early prototype in near mint condition, I wouldn't be too surprised if there's someone in the States who might be prepared to pay that amount.

  10. I may well take you up on that! How do you feel about wearing spandex?? 🤣
  11. It sold. Didn't go well, apparently... https://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=ashdown-amps&iid=293040183544&de=off&items=25&searchInterval=30&which=negative&interval=365&_trkparms=negative_365
  12. For sale is a hand made 5-string by Patrick Koopman (Stevie Vai's guitar tech) in the Netherlands. It weighs in at 3.9 kilos, has a 34" scale, 5-piece maple/wenge graphite reinforced neck, and a rosewood board with 'eye' markers at the 12th fret! 45mm at the nut, an ash body, Bartolini 72MV5K splitable dual coil pickup, with front coil, back coil, series and parallel settings via a rotary switch. Fitted with a Seymour Duncan STC-3M3 3-band preamp, with "slap" setting via pulling out the volume pot. Light weight Schaller carbon fibre/aluminium tuners, ABM Bridge. Spacing is currently set at about 18mm, but is adjustable. Strung with D'Addario EXL170's (45-130). It's in excellent condition, apart from a small dent in the lower bout, and filled holes where the original string retainer was, which was replaced by the previous owner. It's beautifully made, and has a huge array of sounds, but I've decided that the neck is just a little too slim for my gorilla mitts! When I first saw a picture of this bass on here a year or so ago, it wasn't for sale. I actually contacted Patrick to see what it would cost to build another with similar specs, and he quoted me 2500-2700 Euros, so what I'm asking for it (which is just what I paid for it) is an absolute bargain for a custom built bass. Cash on collection preferred, but I can ship at the buyer's cost. Sorry, but I'm not looking for any trades.
  13. That's pretty. At first I wasn't sure about the headstock, but it's growing on me...
  14. Dave bought my mixer. A wonderfully smooth transaction, and a charming fella to boot. Highly recommended!
  15. I only experienced that once, and it was after I left it plugged the bass sitting on a stand for several minutes. All I did was remove it from the jack (there's a micro switch on it, so no thump) and it came straight on.
