  1. Thank you to everyone that came down to to say hi at the SBL Masterclass stage - it was an incredible (and somewhat overwhelming) weekend. The masterclasses were awesome (Bobby, Rich and Mo were outrageous!), and i enjoyed checking out some of the stands in the little time I had away from the boss! After this years show, I'm going to try and make a point of heading down to some of the bass bashes, so please keep me in the loop as to when and where they're happening! It was so lovely to meet so many faces, chat equipment, lessons and progress! Thanks to all those involved... Phil.x
  2. Hi All, Here's a little iphone video my lady took of me whilst having a jam, upstairs @ Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in London. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42bGfcKmN1w Enjoy! Very best, Phil

  4. I thought as much, the figuring on the ash body was very distinctive, and very beautiful! That HH EBMM played the Queens Jubilee gigs in london, I had a union jack scratch plate on it for the day! In fact, here is a pic of the bass on the day with it's altered dress! Good luck with the sale. Phil PS, bought new from The Gallery, London, by myself, one owner, much loved instrument...only traded to buy a pre cbs jazz, it's a year and a half old.
  5. Looks very much like my old bass, did you buy it from Bass Gear?

  7. -------item now sold-------- I recently bought an Overwater Jazz bass which came with the Overwater, John East built, 2 band Jazz Circuit. It's a very similar design to the famous J Retro and J Retro Deluxe replacement circuits, but it's just a little simpler to use, can fit all vintage style jazz basses with a side mounted jack (standard front mounted jacked basses will need to be modified). The four control knobs are as follows: 1. Volume 2. Pan 3. Stacked Bass and Treble (With a push/pull bright function) 4. Passive/Vintage Tone Control (push/pull active or passive) When in the 'in' position, the fourth control acts as a passive tone control, with the Bass/Treble stack redundant. Then when pulled to the 'out' position the 2 band active circuitry is activated and the control becomes an additional vintage tone control. This is boxed, comes with battery clip and jack socked (that will need to be reattached when fitted to your bass). Let me know, thanks guys. Phil

This is boxed, comes with battery clip and jack socked (that will need to be reattached when fitted to your bass) and I'm asking £80 posted. Let me know, thanks guys. Phil Can't seem to upload photos, the site keeps repeatedly saying 'no file was selected for upload'. I'll create an open facebook gallery and post a like.Over
  9. Played this bass a number of times while Chris was a student of mine, fantastic instrument and the inspiration behind me ordering a Custom J5 from Overwater a couple of months ago Good price for a lovely bass, a really great buy! P
  10. Thanks guys, yeah, playing is great for sure! It's lovely when someone comes up to you at a show and says "Hey Phil, I bought so and so off of you last month", with Paypal and couriering it's easy not to meet people you chat to/deal with here on BC. It's a great opportunity to put faces to the names. I think I'll make more of an effort to get to the 'bass bashes' around the country from this year, as I've never been to one as yet, perhaps even play at as many as possible if they'll have me! Best, Phil
  11. Hi everyone, In the 12months I've had some of the finest memories of my career to date. In November I was able to play on the same bill as Marcus Miller at BassDay UK in Manchester, then at the beginning of March I opened the main stage on the sunday at The London Bass Guitar Show before Yolanda Charles and Doug Wimbish, before playing conventional bass for TM Stevens at the end of the month. I never dreamed that these sort of gigs would come my way and now the pressure has finally passed and I can get back to my daily gigs, I've got the chance to look back and take in all the events! I'm so grateful for the opportunities that I've been given in the last year, thank you for the support handed, both from old friends and so many new ones that I've made on here. I just wanted to post and share a video report I found on youtube/ibass of the Manchester event with Stevie Williams. It was a very cool day for me and many that attended. I'm hoping to build on the experience going forward into 2012, both live with my solo set and in the classroom as a lecturer at The Institute, but wouldn't be able to achieve anything without the people around me.
