  1. My old bass! An really excellent instrument - I only let it go because I got Stefan at Bogart to make me a 35" scale version. GLWTS.
  2. Hi Ziggy I've used both, and they are heavier, but the Prolines have noticeably more headroom and heft than the Neos. The high end on the Neos also sounded a lot more brittle to my ears. Definitely worth the extra weight, IMHO!
  3. Another reason why I love this site - you get replies like this! That's a great story about how Neil came into possession of the bass. He had only just got it when I met him, so it must have been the result of a liaison in the very same club, Tiffany's in Bridge Street in Newcastle, now long gone, sadly. It was an interesting gig, like Sodom and Gomorrah with red velour seats and plastic palm trees!
  4. This site has an amazing habit of bringing back old memories, often prompted by basses of yesteryear that come up for sale on here. I played a 1960 stack-knob jazz just like this one back in 1981. It was the property of prolific Edinburgh-based musician and actor Neil Hay, who I had the pleasure of meeting when I took over from him in a resident band in a Tiffany's club in Newcastle. He told me about its rarity even then and what a great bass it was, but I'm ashamed to say I was young and foolish and took very little notice, being obsessed with active Japanese basses and trying to sound like Mark King. Well, it was the 80's after all... Sadly, Neil passed away in 1994, and although this isn't his bass, I do wonder what happened to it. Did anyone on here know him?
  5. Great basses, and an amazing price, but I already have one! 🙂 GLWTS.
  6. I bought a GB Spitfire 5 string from Carl. Communication was prompt and very friendly, and he went the extra mile to send the bass to me packed securely enough to survive an earthquake! Buy/sell/trade with Carl with confidence.
  7. I sold Tony my Sei. A very smooth, painless transaction - buy/sell/trade with confidence. Thanks Tony, and enjoy the bass!
  8. No neck dive at all, it sits on a strap beautifully. The slim headstock probably helps...
  9. There was one for sale on here a couple of months ago, and last year - worth trying to track down the buyers via the sellers? You may have been down this road already, of course...
  10. NOW SOLD For sale is a beautiful example of Martin Petersen's work. It was made for Randy Hope-Taylor about 20 years ago, and the chap I bought it from recently had owned it for many years. It's certainly unusual, sporting a Tele headstock and stacked knobs, and as with all Martin's work, beautifully made. Having played extra long scale 5-string basses for many years, sadly it just doesn't work for me and my gorilla mitts! Specs: 34” scale Surf green body with matching tele shaped headstock Flamed maple neck / Rosewood fingerboard 38mm nut / 19mm string spacing Gotoh GBR640 tuners Alder body / parchment pickguard Passive / stack knob Mørch single coil jazz pickups ( 60s spacing ) Vintage spiral saddle bridge Weight 4.8kg It also comes with a chrome neck pickup cover and an additional tort scratchplate. The neck & fingerboard was originally painted white, but the previous owner had this stripped some years ago by Martin Sims, and he did a great job revealing the beauty of the flame maple. The only trade I would be interested in is for a 35" scale 5-string with 19mm spacing.
  11. Ben bought my Mesa head, and was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Thanks, and enjoy the amp!
  12. Sorry Alberto, thanks for the offer, but a 6 isn't for me - I have enough trouble with 5 strings! 😁
  13. Yeah, well that's no basis for a system of salvation, is it??
