  1. http://www.notreble.com/buzz/2018/02/04/rickenbacker-unveils-the-2018-4003s-5-5-string-bass/ Wow - those pickups 😧 Someone bring out some slightly bigger toasters please 🙏 The thought of one tuned E-C is appealing mind - fireglow or black.......
  2. Bought a 66 Slab P-bass replica from Ben - sale went very smoothly with great comms along the way - a pleasure to deal with and would have no hesitation in recommending him to the Basschat crowd.
  3. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1977-MUSICMAN-Stingray-Fretless-Bass-perhaps-the-rarest-Stingray-ever-made/152525820213?_trksid=p5713.c100284.m3505&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D12%26asc%3D20140905073823%26meid%3D5d535fc2e2b9460782c0d2841d9ab53d%26pid%3D100284%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D152525820213 Me likee !
  4. Look forward to hearing your impressions of the SRH when it arrives. Ibanez do seem to be making some intriguing gear atm. Jeez - they've just brought out a 6-string version of the SRF (706). I was toying with the idea of getting back into 6-string with the SRFF806 - the fanned fret beastie. Now they bring out this....... I did try out a SRF705 in Denmark St a while back and was very impressed by the tones I was getting and the overall feel of the instrument. I just don't know how they do it for the money. Lots of people saying that I know but it's true 🙃
  5. Ibanez SRH705F or SRF705 would do the trick I believe - both have piezo pickups to give that sound you are after - SRH is semi-acoustic so should be the most "double bass" like in its tone possibilities - plenty of clips on YouTube.
  6. In light of the recent re-release of the Songs from the Wood album - 40 years ! - I'd like to put some love out there for the work of John Glascock - melodic, adventurous and a sheer bloody joy to listen to. Some good footage of them live in the accompanying dvd. He plays a lovely natural Stingray with white pickup cover......... Songs from the Wood and Heavy Horses were the albums that drew me into Tulls music - a lot of that due to JG !
  7. Just heard this album in Tidal recently - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxOIY-2OTWE Well worth a listen - I'd describe it as well written poppy prog - if that appeals Lee Pomeroy on bass and Trevor Horn produced so that may give you an insight into what it sounds like - elements of Buggles, Police, Tears for Fears, Trevor Rabin era Yes Id say.
  8. I've had a few over the years and all have been excellent. My current - see avatar - has the body of a PB62FL and the neck of a PB70USFL (sometimes PB70US-84FL - linked to price in Japan) - It's a colour/neck combo I've always wanted. If you prefer Jazz basses then there is of course the JB62FL. Best place to try apart from this forum would of course be e-bay, preferably from a seller in Japan - usually great to deal with - read, honest about condition and will pack and ship well. I got my basses new from Ishibashi - just before they got stopped by Fender from selling new basses. You can get used basses from their "U-box" [url="http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/u_box/e/"]http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/u_box/e/[/url] Nothing fretless there at present but you could fire an e-mail to them - they might have a "contact" that can get one from I always enjoy the hunt - wouldn't mind bagging a PB70US-TL (Phil Lynott) P-Bass - from somewhere tbh - might fire them an e-mail myself..... Good luck !

    RIP Rico

    Sad to hear of Ricos passing - his playing brought delight to many over the years. He played with Linton Kwesi Johnson amongst many others - I just adore this album and can recommend it to anyone - some great bass playing too ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRHDLKTFLKU
  10. A true bass hero of mine and a true original - my mind was truly blown when I first heard him in 1980 and it still gets blown when I listen to him now - such invention and imagination in his playing. Long may it continue ! Many thanks for supplying the interview btw. DMZ - the track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TEmRe4es9k

    Bought an Aguilar Agro distortion box from Freddie. Couldn't have been easier and arrived super quick. So, highly recommended to y'all out there !
  12. Bought Markbass Mini Distortion pedal from Ambient - transaction was as easy as pie - top chap to deal with - so have no hesitation in recommending him to all on the forum ! DMZ
  13. I must admit...as being a lapsed Rick user I find these new 4003S bases are very tempting. Just hope they've managed to get the QC sorted out. Imagine one of these - mapleglo of course - with a toaster and a horseshoe........ I'm sure I've read of someone converting one of these into a 4000 replica already. Loved the picks of the picks of the 4000 a few posts ago btw. Some more soundings from people who've bought or tried one out would be great and very much appreciated...........

    Feedback for TorVic

    I sold a Fender Modern Player 5 to Vic and found him to be a credit to this forum. Funds arrived quickly and he kept regular comms throughout the transaction. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to everyone ! Cheers Vic ! DMZ
  16. ....don't forget his playing on a few Brand X albums too in the late 70's - try out the "Product" and "Do they hurt" albums and perhaps "Is there anything about". These albums also feature the genius that is Percy Jones !
  17. Up for sale is my immaculate Fender Modern Player Jazz Bass V. Satin black with maple neck and fingerboard. Nut width 47.6mm, width at 12th fret is 67mm - weighs 4.5 kilos on my scales. Bought new a year ago and is in as new condition - even has plastic covers still on pickups and pick guard. Plays wonderfully - as good as any of the Laklands I have owned in the past - 55-01 and 55-02. Reviewed well on YT - go have a look ! Gives you a feel for the tonal variety the bass has with is pretty vast. No trades unfortunately as need funds for other domestic projects. Firm on the price (£295.00 plus shipping) as is an absolute bargain - costs over £400 new. Will be supplied in the box it came in with some added padding. More than welcome to try before you buy if you live nearby - Southeast Wales [url="http://intl.fender.com/en-GB/basses/jazz-bass/modern-player-jazz-bass-v-satin-maple-fingerboard-black/"]http://intl.fender.c...gerboard-black/[/url]
