  1. Up for sale (no trades please) is my 2016 American Vintage '63 Precision in faded sonic blue with rosewood fingerboard. In immaculate condition, only played indoors, never gigged or rehearsed. There's some minor checking on the heal and upper horn, but in a very fetching and tasteful way (flash coat acquer). Been after one of these for ever, but despite many attempts, it just hasn't grabbed me. I have enough Precisions, got a new kitchen on the way, and I'd like someone else to give it the love it deserves. Of course, these are discontinued, and they are extremely well made recreations of the 1963 era P bass. Many details elsewhere on line, but key specs from my perspective: alder body flash coat lacquer (minor checking which I've tried to show) maple C shaped neck (some nice figuring on the neck) round-laminated rosewood fingerboard, 7.25" radius 1.74" nut width bone nut American Vintage '63 Precision Bass Split Single-Coil 20 vintage style frets (well dressed, 20th fret has some slap wear from the shop not from me) Vintage reverse tuners 3-ply mint green pickguard chrome pickup and bridge covers, lower finger rest, clay-coloured dot inlays, auxiliary strap button on headstock American Vintage Bass bridge with Threaded Steel "Barrel" Saddles Vintage blonde case with red interior Case candy (Fender flats on the bass, the rounds got used) 4.03kg/8.9llbs on my fish scales Happy to ship at buyers expense in Great Britain. Very difficult to capture the subtlety of the faded sonic blue on camera.
  2. Were these always Pau Ferro fingerboards? I've a 2008 model which I thought was rosewood.
  3. I haven't played as much bass because I've been improving on the guitar, with regular practise and on-line tuition. This has helped with cementing theory and improving my ear. I did 3 outdoor socially distanced gigs on bass, and they went well enough. Just started back on bass to determine if any of them should go, and the guitar playing has opened up the instrument, although I am experiencing quite a bit of muscle ache. I'm sorry to hear others are struggling to play. It's been a massive solace for me during these hard times. I would say, home practice is no substitute for what I get out of rehearsals, musically, psychologically and emotionally, and can't wait to get back to it.
  4. This can’t still be available!? Have a bump in case it is. I’ve already got 2 so I couldn’t possibly.

  9. Lovely. I have it's twin, acquired here back in 2007. Though the pop of the grain is nicer in yours. I must get mine out of the case to show it some love.
  10. First became aware of Mr Murray with Colosseum II and National Health. Always amazed he joined Whitesnake. Shows his versatility.
  11. Thanks for the thread. Always seems to me that they do jazz festivals so much better in Europe. Discuss 😉
  12. That's just about nicer than anything I own.
  13. not only is this my year of birth, but also my month of birth. I'll scare the other half with "I've found my perfect 60th birthday present".
  14. We are planning to play out doors at our usual rehearsal space once the weather has improved. Often, with a break, I find we can sound better, people are listening and concentrating and not going through the motions. That's jazz for you. Mind you, this is the longest break, ever. We also have 2 horn players, and thinking they need to stand well away and down wind of the rest of us.
  15. What an amazing resource. Is this going to stay up? Slits '77, fantastic. Peel was such a part of my teens through the 70s, and informed my musical landscape, but I found him more and more irritating as he implemented his brand of taste control over the years. I continued loving rock, prog, & jazz when punk & new wave came along, he just rejected anything if it wasn't done in a shed that morning, or it was the Undertones 😉 Thanks for sharing.
  16. she's trying smuggle out a couple of Belgian Buns with a cherry on top
  17. Si pulls another one out of the vault
  18. I acquired a Buzz a few years ago, and Mike and Christine were very responsive to various dumb donkey questions I had. Good luck to them in retirement.
  19. Bowie and Chris Squire, who were both huge influences over my life time. It's interesting. We don't "know" these people as real people, so how can any emotions we feel be real? But any emotional reaction is based on what their music and public persona meant to us, maybe how we were formed by them, and what their absence will mean. And it's music, which can embed itself deep into our core selves, so it's very personal.
  20. Amusing little thread, but I have to say I've always had a prompt response from Bass Direct. Always. Over several years. I agree it's annoying not to get a response when you're serious about getting hold of a serious bass, but I just feel it's a little unkind to make this posting if you haven't tried all means to get in touch with them, such as the 'hike' to get your phone during a break. I had the shittiest experience in another bass emporium well known to this forum, but after looking at other people's experience here I figured it was a one-off, and I took it up with them directly.
