  2. For sale only: Ibanez SRX 505 5 string £250 inc. UK courier A decent first fiver, with a very playable upper register to the 24th fret. Tasty finish too! Fully working, no major dings, most noticeable are the thumb dents near the pups (see pics). String spacing is 18mm at bridge, 9mm at nut. Nut is 44mm. Weight 4.26kg.

  3. For sale only, Bass Centre Bruce Thomas profile P bass, gigbag and bag candy. £350 inc. UK courier Full working order. Excellent cosmetic condition, I can't see any marks other than thumb wear on the pickguard cellophane (which is still attached). Gorgeous satin neck, 41mm nut and Mr Thomas' custom profile, not far off an oval C. Powerful pickups! You'ld think it was active, it's significantly louder than other Ps I've owned, but not muddy or bloomy. 4.04kg on the kitchen scales. Lovely to play, only selling because my P and J have made way for a PJ Can courier in original (and very cool!) Bass Centre box. Payment by BACS or cash/BACS on collection (with £20 discount for collection). Location: Tonbridge, Kent

      Don't forget that NBD thread... with photos, of course
      I was really tempted by a medium scale Jake a few years back on here.
      These days, given my advancing years, I now realise the importance of lightweight basses ;)

  6. Price drop to £125 inc UK courier. Please note: I can't get the XLR *input* to work, see https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/310428-trace-elliot-gp11-xlr-input/?tab=comments#comment-3354396 , but the regular jack input works fine.

    What features should all bass guitars have?

    Certainly my Squier Bronco ticks those boxes, and is a fun bedroom bass! It's a good list because it allows you to build on it, adding those personal/situational preferences: e.g. I've added my personal 'must haves' for a gigging/recording bass in italics - and probably add well-dressed frets, no neck-dive, and a weight that I can bear for a set too.

    What features should all bass guitars have?

    Slot load bridge BUT with a simple press-latch mechanism over the saddle so that the ballend can't pop out when you start installing a new string (not sure if such a beast exists though) Well-shielded electronics Satin neck (no gloopy gloss) Fretboard on both sides of the neck and pups on both sides of the body. One side has rounds, one has flats, and each side can have different pups/preamps. Of course this requires an inflatable belly guard (bit like the Gretsch White Falcon), and fingerless gardening gloves in the case candy, so the strings on the side you are not playing can't hurt you...

    Excellent stuff! This is worth a look too, solo take on the song with a '68 4001
  11. That's a great pic, because (1) it's gorgeous and (2) it shows well the sleeker contours and depth for the special. Cheers!
