  1. This walnut Classic Vibe 70s P bass is from Squier's current line and is a great player with a lovely neck. Specs from https://www.fender.com/en-GB/squier-electric-basses/precision-bass/classic-vibe-70s-precision-bass/0374520592.html: Colour - Walnut Body Material - Nyatoh Neck Material - Maple Neck Shape - "C" Shape Fingerboard Material - Maple Fingerboard Radius - 9.5" (241 mm) Fret Size - Narrow Tall Nut Width - 1.685" (42.8 mm) Weight on my kitchen scales: 3.75kg (8lb 4oz) The pickups and pickguard still have the protective plastic film - I never got round to peeling them off! The original black pickguard will be included as well as the current brown tort one. The strings are Fender 9050 flatwounds, less than six months old. The cavity has been shielded with copper foil. A second 0.047uf cap has been added in parallel to the stock one, which makes it 0.1uf in total. The difference is that it now gets slightly darker than stock when you roll down the tone knob. Very easy to remove if you don't want it - I can do that if you prefer. The tuners are replacements from a Fender Modern Player jazz bass. There have previously been two other types of tuners installed, so there are extra screw holes and a couple of small chips in the back of the headstock - these are hidden from view behind the current tuners. Happy to answer questions or take more photos etc - please just ask. £260 including UK postage. Looking only for a sale - no trades, thanks.
  2. GHS Bass Precision Flats, five-string set M3050-5 Gauges: 45, 65, 85, 105, 126 Cut for a standard 34" Fender-style bass with 4+1 headstock. Good condition: three months old and haven't had much use. https://www.ghsstrings.com/products/11278-bass-precision-flatstm?category_id=1964710-precision-flatstm £28 posted
  3. Certain it's not the first time I've left feedback for KiOgon - I recently bought another couple of looms, all perfect. Thanks!
  4. £325 collected from Bristol. Sale only - not interested in any trades. I can post within the UK for £20. This is a great Precision bitsa in beautiful vintage white, with (removable) pickup & bridge chrome covers and tug bar completing the old school look. With its flatwounds strings, I've been enjoying playing Motown on it - but a Precision suits most musical styles. Body The body is from a 2013 Fender Squier Matt Freeman Precision. Colour: Vintage White Body Material: Basswood Hardware: Chrome Bridge: 4-Saddle HiMass Bridge with Brass Saddles Misc: Knurled Chrome Dome Control Knobs, Tug Bar. The original electronics developed an intermittent crackle, so they have been removed and a KiOgon loom was installed this week. This has a solderless pickup connection, so it's very easy if you did want to experiment with other pickups. Having said that, the stock pickups sound great to me and I never felt the need to change them. The bridge and pickup covers were imported from America (due to the HiMass bridge being a slightly different size to a standard Fender bridge). The tort pickguard is a replacement; I don't have the the original black one. There is a small scratch by the G-string side of the bridge. There are some paint imperfections near the neck join. The chrome pickup cover has some wear on it - only visible from some angles. Neck The neck is from a 2021 Fender Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass. Neck Material: Maple Neck Finish: Tinted Gloss Urethane Neck Shape: "C" Shape Scale Length: 34" (86.36 cm) Fingerboard Material: Indian Laurel Fingerboard Radius: 9.5" (241 mm) Fret Size: Narrow Tall Nut Width: 1.685" (42.8 mm) The tuners are the stock ones; however there are alternate screw holes underneath where third-party tuners were previously installed. Misc The neck join is ok but not air-tight (this is cosmetic). Strung with new Adagio flats. Weight on digital kitchen scales: 3.975kg (8lb 12oz) without the chrome covers. Happy to answer any questions so please just ask if you need any more photos or information.

  6. Thanks all for the interest. Sorry I only had one to sell! Now sold.
  7. 5-string Bass-Mute £80 posted within UK https://www.bassmute.eu/bm_mainframe.html four mute positions (website says two, but there are four: off, light, medium, and max) adjust the spacing with the included hex key includes unused spare set of mutes You'll need some double-sided tape. E.g. 3M VHB https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/144279748477. I used one 90x15mm strip, which is 99p. There was a recent thread about these: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/462831-ngd-bassmute/
  8. Hipshot 5-String 'A' Bridge, variant #708 (18mm spacing) £85 posted within UK https://hipshotproducts.com/products/5-string-a-style-bass-bridge?variant=31567450824 aluminium with chrome finish string spacing 18mm, adjustable by 1.5mm through-body or top load stringing quick load slots Dimensions etc here: http://docs.hipshotproducts.com/5A500-708_5_STG_A_STYLE_BASS_BRIDGE_708_SPACING_DIMENSIONS.pdf
  9. For sale: Yamaha NS-F51 floorstanding speakers, £90. Couple of small scratches but otherwise in good condition. Collection from Bristol. Details and specs: https://europe.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/speaker_systems/ns-f51/index.html
  10. Very well-used, torn, Tom & Will double bass case. Missing a handle on the side of the upper bout, right-hand side. The worst tear is on the front of upper bout. Repaired with Tenacious Tape but the repair has failed. There is a repair near the bridge handle which is ok. At the bottom of the lower bout, the right-hand side seam is starting to tear; the left-hand side has been repaired but is starting to come away. External tape is Tenacious Tape; internal tape is duct tape. If you have use for it, it's yours for £15, which is the cost of posting in a cardboard box. I have some other stuff to take to the dump on Monday 28th March, so that's the deadline!
  11. Fairfield Circuitry Barbershop Modèle B Always-on overdrive pedal. https://fairfieldcircuitry.com/products/model-b No box. £115 including UK postage.
  12. For sale: One Control "Sonic Silver Peg" pre-amp pedal. "We captured the sound similar to the 100W V4 tube amplifier released by Ampeg in the 1970s" - https://www.one-control.com/pedal/sonic-silver-peg Controls: volume, tone, & mid knobs 15dB boost switch £90 collected from central Bristol £95 posted within UK Update: now sold
  13. Bass Bar £35 including postage Update: now sold Good quality stand, making it easier and safer to put down & pick up your double bass. I found it particularly great for quick changes when doubling. Folds down and fits into included bag. See https://www.thebassbar.co.uk/
  14. @stewblack I'm covering for another bassist so I'm a bit busier than usual! Dropping price to £450 collected from Bristol, or perhaps I can deliver/meet somewhere. I've also looked into posting, and UPS is coming up at £32 (for a box 84 x 58 x 46 cm, 22kg). I could go 50/50 on this cost with a buyer. Send me a message to discuss anything!
  15. Yes, I remember that sale in Feb 2019 as it was one day before I moved house and my place was a mess! @Zolotar is a nice guy - came round to purchase the bass at the agreed time, and made a transfer with no problems. Recommended buyer! 👍 (And I miss that BB434...)
  16. The thing is that wood density varies from piece to piece. A quick look at Sweetwater and Peach Guitars shows a range from 8lb 3.5oz to 9lb 2oz. I use a Salter digital kitchen scales to weigh basses - about £10, and comes in useful in the kitchen too!
  17. Use the right tool for the job (i.e. a set list app)! I use Piascore which is just like forScore, but free. I do have a paid version of forScore - but prefer Piascore. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/piascore-hd/id406141702
  18. The one at Bass Direct is not fretless, despite the written description. Their listings often have errors or are copied & pasted without checking!
  19. Perhaps https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Spector_Spectorcore_5_SH.html
  20. Still for sale. As well as meeting up in/near Bristol, the next few weeks I'll be in Exeter, Southampton, Worcester, Coventry, Hull, Sutton Coldfield, Watford, and Bracknell.
  21. In-ears. Angled speaker in front of you (either a PA speaker or angled bass cab), since your ears point forwards not backwards.
