  1. I know it sounds cheesy but I'm so happy with your compliment.. I"ve written it before but I'm still recovering from that bicycle accident a year ago (more than 110 sessions for that splattered wrist in the meantime and still counting) and glad that the playing is still appreciated and "possible" (I still feel that I'm not the player I used to be and apparantly I will never heal completely but glad that I can do what I can do). Especially five string is very hard for me to do but I don't want to make it easy for myself.. Thanks again for the compliment, really pleased with it (whether the bass gets sold or not :-))
  2. Bought this around three months ago for the same price but in the meantime there is a bass I really want (and in my favourite colour) so this is for sale. I was amazed by the useful sounds offered by this passive bass and something just said "yes" when I saw the ad in which it was for sale (weird since I don't like black basses). I don't know much about the specs of the basses I buy (I just try to play them) but these are apparently made in China.. I like the yellow-ish fretboard and the low action (I put brand new strings on it) Shipment included to the UK (have to look for a gigbag since there wasn't one when I bought it). No PayPal please (their fees and exchange rates surprised me a lot in the past so I would prefer an international money transfer, check my feedback here on BC) Made a video which gives an impression of a couple of sounds...(still recovering from my bicycle accident which splattered my right wrist but perhaps that teaches me how to play more laidback :-))
  3. No problem, I always think : "that's the way it is supposed to be !" :-) GLWTS
  4. I'm selling a five string Fender Jazz and if it gets sold, we might talk again :-) I'm just in a Bogart-fase at this time so your timing is again great :-)
  5. Bought a Sire-bass from Carlos..Easy transaction like always and very trustworthy ! Highly recommended..
  6. Ah, true ! Totally forgot about this one ! Apologies ! Couple of great niche basses over there..
  7. Ah, I didn't know it was you who had the Frog ! Great bass...still thinking of perhaps owning a five string fretless Frog one day..
  8. I live in Belgium but I'm afraid you won't find a lot...Where there used to be some shops worthwhile there is imo nothing left.. Unlike other European cities Brussels misses these kind of bass orientated shops...There are a couple of shops but they show nothing special (couple of Fenders, Ibanez, Yamaha stuck between a drum kit and a keyboard). We used to have a bass-shop in Antwerp but that closed down as soon as the internet became competition...
  9. Have a bump on me (I keep looking at this)..Fantastic basses, best you can buy for prices like this...
  10. Someone inquired about the weight..it's 4,2 kg (pity it was a tiny bit too heavy for him but there's no hurry :-))
  11. Sold a Steinberger to our Greek friend...Highly recommended, very smooth transaction without any trouble or hassle....
  12. I can also say that it's original... I was looking for a great Jazz and a fellow bass player (who is an absolute Fender-nerd) recommended this one to me.. It was only when I checked the ad with the bass that I realised it used to be mine...
  13. I once got this Fender in exchange for a fretless Wal I had to offer but sold it a couple of years ago (the continuing GAS for other things). I missed a good seventies Fender so around a year ago I had the chance to buy it back and I did.. Because of a bicycle accident (of which I’m still recovering) I haven’t played it too much and I feel that other basses like my Ken Smith suit me better (humbuckers make it easier to rest on in my case). This bass has its dings and dongs and has seen stages and rehearsal rooms but it sounds like it should do…It has a Jaco-ish growl and a funky slapsound. It’s as good as original apart from one intonationscrew in the bridge (G string) and a couple of screws for the pick ups… 3 tone sunburst, alder body, maple neck, rosewood neck, blocks and binding, pearl inlays.. Serialnumber 38xxxx (neckplate) refers to 1973/74 (your bass was made at the Fullerton Plant (Fender CBS era), USA in 1973-1974) Date on the pots refers to 1974) The neck shows the mark of “Herb G” but no date…Herb G refers to Herb Gastellum, a worker at the Fender factories in the beginning of the seventies…(I’ve got this information from the previous owner since I don’t like taking basses apart, I would have to go to a luthier to do that ànd have a new set-up) This comes with a non original case (shipment to the UK included). Not really looking for trades, thanks.. No Paypal please, I’ve tried it a couple of times and the fees and the exchange rates they handle made me lose more money than I had…I would prefer an international bank transfer. Feel free to check my feedback here on Bass.chat. The bass can also be picked up but I live near Brussels in Belgium… I’ve got nothing to hide so always welcome if you would like to combine it with a trip to Belgium (pre-Brexit..) I’ve made a small video with the fingerstyle and the slap sound. Thanks for looking and if you have any questions I’m at your service and hopefully I can answer them…
