  1. I've got 7 mutual friends with him on FB - going to post warning about this. Good luck to those trying to get their money back.
  2. Initially 5, then revised down to 2-3. This was two years ago (so costs may have gone up) but he quoted around £1180 (that was sunburst which is a little extra).
  3. I spoke to Mark at Limelight about commissioning a Sting-style reliced 50s bass. Because it would require more unusual parts he said it would be easier if a few people wanted to order. We talked prices, and he seems up for doing it. I've been using a Limelight '66' P/J that he made me a few years ago and still love it!
  4. Late to the party, but I have a Woodline Handmade 5 and it's absolutely superbly made. I had a Sadowsky preamp put in and it's stunning.
  5. What a beautiful pair! Really suit your playing.
  6. Not sure if this is aimed at me, but I bought mine from the Gallery, so nil.
  7. Great buyer! Quick payment, couldn't ask for better. Great comms. Enjoy the bass - I miss it already!
  8. Great seller - very quick with comms. Couldn't fault anything. Thanks!
  9. Thanks Johann. And SOLD! Thanks for the interest. Sorry @lloyd!
  10. Yes it can, and it has a tone control for passive use. Well - currently it's under offer and I'm discussing payment with the buyer so I'll keep you posted. Cheers Lloyd.
  11. Still available! I got cold feet as it's such a nice instrument, but it now needs to make way for something else I've been lusting after for a while!
  12. Very nice! Hope it comes up for sale at some point!
  13. Absolutely fantastic. You have great taste!
  14. Congrats. She's a real beauty. Love that sadowsky sound.
  15. Fantastic. Perfect 4 string! Where did you get it from?
  16. That Bravewood is absolutely exceptional! This is very high on my list to get at some point.
  17. Thanks for sharing, really enjoyed that!
  18. Possibly a ramp fitted at some point? Can you post a close up picture of that area please?
  19. An absolutely wonderful bass which I don't use enough as I am using a 5 string for most of my gigs. It's too good not to be regularly played. A USA Deluxe Precision, although it's technically a PJ as it has a jazz pickup too for ultimate versatility. N3 noiseless pickups, and 18v preamp with master volume, pickup blend, bass/treble, mids/passive tone control and active/passive switch. In really good condition - one ding on the top and a small dent under the neck which I can send a picture of. Otherwise 9/10 condition. Plays really nice, sounds huge. Extremely versatile! Comes with original fender hardshell case. Pickup from near Colchester, Essex, though I do gig around quite a bit.
  20. A backbeat in black, with carry case and power supply in perfect condition. I bought it unusued, and I've used it on 2 gigs. It's pretty amazing and makes it feel like you have a huge rig behind you, but I'm going in a different direction and won't be needing it. Read more about it here: http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Backbeat.html New is £330, so save £80! Pickup from near Braintree/Colchester, or can post for £5
  21. How much is shipping to the UK please?
  22. I've been through so many different basses, but I think my current crop really represent what I value in bass guitars - a really good jazz and precision sound. So I have a 71P and 71J, a Limelight PJ (with Sadowsky Preamp), a Bacchus Jazz 5 (with Sadowsky preamp!) and a Fender deluxe PJ (which I'm going to sell but is still great). All Fenders or Fender clones. The only outliers are a Rimbass 5 singlecut (such a good deal I couldn't turn it down) and my fretless choice is a Stingray 5 - just sounds wonderful. But mainly it's that fender sound that I feel just cannot be beaten.
  23. I have that exact setup, and love it!
