  1. Shame it would have been nice to catch up...I notice you still have your faithful yammy.
  2. I had better add myself on to this list. 25. Pinball: Amplification: GB 2x12 and streamliner Burnes Marquee bass, G&L Fallout, Supro Huntington 1, Fender Jazz Bass Special/boxer, Peerless Jack Casady. I also a Revelation Dub King if anyone wants to see it but let me know as I have to get it back from a buddy. Keep me a space! Stuff for the auction? I don't know that I have much spare to be honest but will have a look.
  3. This is a wicked bass but unfortunatley I'm not playing bass in any bands so looking to get some money back to carry on recording. The bass is home used and imaculate and comes with a fender soft case. It plays like a dream IMHO and needs to be used! Trades? Cash preferred (see above) but would consider a nice P bass, preferably with cash my way. Happy to consider short or medium scale. Bass info and stats: Best of both worlds Precision Bass x Jazz Bass. The Fender Boxer PJ Bass combines Fender's most iconic bass designs into a single tonal monster. The 3-way pickup switch allows you to instantly switch between any combination giving you the tones of both, whilst simultaneously offering the ability to combine them for a raucous new tone. The 34'' scale length with 20 jumbo frets gives you unparalleled sustain and ensures a rich and rounded tone. The 12'' radius of the fretboard makes fretting remarkably easy and means even fiddly parts become easier to play. The PJ Boxer really is an amalgamation of the ebst qualities of both the Jazz and Precision Basses. Boom AND Bark The age old debate of Precision Bass pickups vs Jazz Bass pickups still rumbles on, why choose a side when you could get both on the same bass? 'P' pickups have a generally more rounded high-mid and treble range, while J pups have a sharper tonal response. Having both of these differing tonal palettes available on a single bass gives you a remarkable level of versatility to utilise. Use the punch of the P pickup to easily cut through even the densest mix, alternatively, get more articulate attack and razor sharpness from the J pickup. For modern bassists, versatility is often key and the Boxer PJ has it in abundance, there will be no tone you can't access with this intuitive pickup combination. MIJ-quality Japanese-made Fenders have always carried a mythical reputation. Due to their comparative rarity and consistently flawless build quality, they've always been held in incredibly high regard. The Boxer PJ proves that legacy is well-earned. Coloured headstocks can often be a giveaway and the black gloss polyester finish here lend a deluxe, top-end aesthetic to the instrument. The choice of rosewood as the fretboard material acts similarly, a tougher wood fits perfectly with this design as it adds sustain and resonance for superior performance. With an 'MIJ tag, you are assured quality craftsmanship.

  4. Bought in at the start of the first lockdown as I thought she would be good company to tale along with me open mike nights! Bags of personality and great fun. She is getting on a bit but you can still see her curves! Plays fine but is a bit rattley and rough around the fret edges up the neck, however I never notice this in normal play and it doesn't show up through an amp, where she sings fine (nice p-ups too). All the controls do something but I'm not shure what as I found my sound quickly and haven't explored since. The balance is fine. This bass will suit someone who wants something with character, a learner due to the short scale or someone who wants somthing they can travel around with them without worrying about it too much. No idea which basses all the bits came from.. Price negotiable..
  5. I bought this beauty for a project/tour that never happened so even though I have bonded with it it's time to try and get my money back! I love the looks, style, build and sound of this bass. It is very lightweight, so some neck dive but great to carry around. Very easy and fun to play. Very versitile, check out the range of sounds in the video below. The previous owner fitted pickup covers, which have made a great looking instrument even better IMHO. It comes with a generic but decent as soft case DUB KING The Dub King produces the thick, deep tone you’d expect from a short scale neck and semi-hollow body. But unlike most basses of this type, it has excellent clarity and sustain thanks to the five-piece neck and lock down bridge. You can even solo the Split Brick neck pickup for super deep thump, and the split pole design keeps it focused. SPECIFICATIONS BODY semi-hollow korina, solid spruce top. NECK PROFILE medium oval. NUT 1-21/32" (42 mm) width, graphite. PICKUPS Thick Brick bridge, Split Brick neck. FINGERBOARD rosewood, 12" radius. CONTROLS volume, tone, pickup pan. BRIDGE string-thru-body or top-load, 3/4" spacing. FRETS 21 frets. STRINGS 45-100. NECK 5-piece korina/walnut. TRUSS ROD dual action, headstock access. CASE Lg Two-Toned Teardrop (Available Separately). SCALE 30". TUNERS Hipshot Ultralight, 1/2" dia. shaft. LIST PRICE $1199. I'm using anothers pictures of the bass as it has been borrowed by a friend (home use) at the moment. Therefore I can't answer questions but can retrieve it for purchase.
  6. A nice playing and sounding bass about 5 years old, as new with no signs of use. It’s a real looker too. "Burns guitars are not currently produced. This info is from their web page. A re-issue of the original 1964 Jazz Bass, it features three Tri-Sonic pickups and has the same versatile controls as the Marquee Guitar to give a wide range of superb bass tones." Additional features for the Marquee Bass Long Scale: Basswood body Flat original headstock Fingerboard scale length: 34" 40mm nut width 20 frets Burns de-luxe bridge Chrome hardware as standard Burns de-luxe machine heads Three Burns Tri-Sonic bass pickups Punch/pull pickup selector Available in Shadows White or Redburst Excuse that the following pictures look a bit washed out. Some reflection I think as the pickuard is typical tort colour. Also I think that the previous owner had it on a wall as there is a creamier colour along the top edge..
  7. Yep I have a Stingray Special 5 and a SR705 fretless. I haven't played them in a long while but am hanging on to them in hope.
  8. I have permission to come along. It was required as it also my wedding anniversery. I have been swapping and bases around lots since the last bash. Will bring Amplification: GB amp and 2x12 Short Scales: Reverend Dub King, Supro Huntington. I also have a USA Fallout but will probably leave that at home unless someone particularly wants me to bring it. Long Scales: Peerless Jack Casady, Fender Boxer Jazz Special and maybe a couple of surpises Note: I could do with selling a few. Now worried which as they are all fab in my humble opinion Is there space for me to bring these?
  9. Having owned one ofd these in the past this sounds like a bargain to me. I'd buy it if I hadn't just blown my money on another bass.

    I picked this up yestarday and although it is a loveley bass I just don't like lined fretless basses. I'm looking to swap for an unlined one or maybe a fretted version. I know it is a long shot but would love one that is the same clour. This is used so as you would expect for an old bass it has a couple of dings in the front but as you can see the paint work is still there and it still looks great
  11. Good plan...although in his case it didn't really matter as sadley he died suddenly a couple of days later. It was their last gig
  12. Here's why so few bass players smash their instruments...it's hard work
  13. The bass player has been discussed in this thread back in 2010..
  14. The latest ...enjoy!
  15. Thanks for the feedback (4 year?). That one is a great bass. It is so easy to dial in great sounds. If my band hadn't packed up I would have kept it. Enjoy!
