Total Watts

  1. Yes, still for sale. Send me a PM if you want any further info.
  2. Now WITHDRAWN High quality Tune Bass Maniac 4 string bass. MIJ in 1986. The bass maniacs were the originators of the whole Ibanez SR and Nanyo SGC shape basses. I bought this bass from its first owner 3 or 4 years ago. Very high quality MIJ bass. 2 piece Ash body with a massively thick quilted maple (I think) top. Neck is skinny, 3 piece laminated maple. Tuners are original and of high quality. Total bass weight is an extremely comfortable 3.3kg. It has a brass nut. Frets show almost no wear, which is incredible. Not sure what they are made of. The neck is straight and true with no significant dings or scrapes. Plays very nicely indeed. The Tune preamp has been removed (I am not a fan of Tune electronics anyway), and has been replaced with passive wiring, giving you volume for each pickup, master treble cut and a master bass cut. It works really, really well actually. Played acoustically, the bass is very resonant and a testament to its build of the highest quality woods. The bridge is the standard massive MIJ Tune affair. Now we get to the pickups which you will have noticed instantly. Built originally as a PJ (these are not the original Tune pickups - again I think these are better than the originals, despite being "no-name" pickups) I have routed a new socket for the DG part of the P pickup to be mounted on the neck side of the EA part, to make it a reverse P pickup. IMO it sounds much better and balanced this way as originally the DG part of the P pickup is too close to the bridge pickup for me, sonically. In the original DG rout is half a cheap P pickup to make it look nice. You could obviously easily swap it back again to the original "standard" P orientation if you wanted. The DG P pickup rout is admittedly not perfect with a little bit of lacquer chipping around the edge but you have to look relatively close to see it. I have also put a small rosewood thumb rest to give you a bit more option in thumb placement as the P pickup is slightly too near the bridge for my ideal hand placement. The general finish of the body is still wonderful for a 33 year old bass. There are a few small dents which I have tried to show in pictures but overall the impression is of a pretty tidy bass. THe bass sounds absolutely wonderful and the neck is just a dream for me. However, I am selling it as I just can't get my right hand comfortable on this body shape whatever I do. Ergonomically it just ain't gonna fit me. I now also have too many basses so something must go. Make no mistake this is not at all comparable with the MIK Bass Maniacs or the SGC Nanyo Bass Collection range and is much higher quality. This is a difficult bass to price as it is high quality but is rare and is quite altered from original. I think £225 posted in mainland UK is a decent price for such a great instrument, and a piece of history to boot. Payment by cash or Paypal gift please. Please see my extensive feedback here too. If you want to come and see it, I live near Southampton. Price would be a bit less for collection.
  3. now SOLD For sale, one COG Knightfall 66 pedal. My favourite ever bass overdrive pedal. Only for sale as I have now moved exclusively over to a Helix and I can't see that changing in the forseeable future. 2 x channels, level and gain for each. Clean blend, Voice (basically a crossover control altering the frquency over which the signal is overdriven) and tone. All you need. In superb condition. COG's usual brushed aluminium finish. Needs power from a standard Boss-type PSU (not included). Does not take batteries. £110 posted to you in mainland UK. In original box. Will be very safely packaged. Paypal gift or bank transfer payment only please. No offers thanks.
  4. ..................... now SOLD .......................... One set of 2009 Jason Lollar handwound PJ pickups for 4 string bass. The J pickup has raised polepieces on the A and D string positions. The pickups themselves are immaculate, the covers have a couple of scuffs on them although nothing at all serious. Plenty of wire length. Sound pretty awesome as you might expect. A serious upgrade for any serious bassist. £139 posted to you within mainland UK. No trades thanks.
  5. Absolutely immaculate Ashdown ABM EVO IV 4x10 cab, 8 ohm, 600W. Used literally for one gig. This is the 2nd one of these I've owned. IMO they are as good as absolutely anything. Sadly the band folded and I have no need for it in my current band as I go through the PA. I've been holding on to it as it is a quality item but if I join further bands I'd be looking to downsize kit not upsize again. The cab is a heavy-duty piece of kit and I have fitted professional heavy duty 5 inch castors to the bottom, so you can now roll it around as effortlessly as you can play through it. No marks or scuffs on it at all. Pretty much as new, plus the casters of course. £279 Collection only, no exceptions, from the Southampton area. Price is £299, no offers.
  6. Oh b*gger. Wish I hadn't spotted this. I'm very tempted to repurchase this baby of mine.
