    Hello...in search of a particular bass

    So you know, I believe all the Big Al's are SSS and it's a rare enough name that you likely get more hits in searches by just looking for "Big Al Dargie Delight" e.g.: this search
  2. It's happening guys... I wanted to be Jon Stockman but it turns out I'm not and I can't justify having this wonderful thing sat around doing nothing so... Warwick Thumb NT6 from 1997. Serial number A 035230 97. You know the deal. Bubinga and Wenge loveliness. Out of this world Seymour Duncan Bassline II pickups with 18v MEC preamp giving this some insane thump if you want it. It's pretty much unmarked, some very small dings and the world's tiniest bit of white paint on the tip of the headstock (pictured) where it rubbed against the wall where I keep it- could probably come off with a little bit of elbow grease. Sounds and plays amazing. Neck is fairly shallow so no issue getting to all 6 strings. I replaced the straplocks with a new set of Jim Dunlop ones as the old ones would come loose without warning! Very scary. Never let it drop though (phew). I'll miss this! Not in a particular hurry to sell it to hoping to get a little less than I paid for it- £1600. Comes with a gigbag although I could put it in a hardcase for a little extra. I only really want to have this collected in Manchester but I might be open to shipping it for the right price.
  3. You could always switch it out 😉 Any 3 band EQ with a volume pot would be a direct drop in... 👼

    Definitely a bit odd- description talks about it being a Precision. Maybe they've copied the wrong title from somewhere

    Can't comment on the price but looks like a nice bit of kit this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Roscoe-Century-Standard-Plus-5-string-Lefty-Left-handed-Bass-guitar/153235827533?hash=item23ad912b4d:g:d88AAOSw8f9bsRJ3:rk:2:pf:0
  7. Would like to move this on now - price is dropped to £850 plus postage or pickup in Manchester

    Absolute steal this (imo): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Japan-CIJ-Left-Handed-Precision-Bass-62-Reissue-PB62LH/153215175704?hash=item23ac560c18:g:UB8AAOSwfr1bu7IP:rk:2:pf:0 Could probably get it for £340/350 if someone else doesn't BIN while you're waiting on the offer to be responded to

    I sold a sunburst one of these a couple of years ago- maybe it's still floating around in the country somewhere
  10. Hi everyone! Due to it not getting as much playing time as it should, I'm looking to sell my ACG Recurve 5 string. It was bought on this very forum a few years ago in 2013, here is the original advert (with some super sexy pictures): Here are the specs (slightly tweaked from the original advert- forgive me for my sins!): Built in 2010, this is custom-made bass by Alan Cringean of ACG. It has a 5 piece body with Macassar Ebony top and a Wenge back and core along with Sycamore accent veneers. The neck is a 7 piece Flame Sycamore and Macassar Ebony with an acrylic impregnated Flame Sycamore fingerboard with Macassar Ebony binding. It is the third left handed basses that ACG has made and is of extremely high standard. It is number 0060 and is on his site here: http://www.acguitars.co.uk/project/0060-recurve-s-type-5/ It has an ACG EQ01 Filter based 18 volt pre amp (made in conjunction with John East), ACG FB humbuckers and John East low battery indicator with Series/Single/Parallel switches for each pickup. The filter based pre-amp is similar to what the famous Wal basses came with and makes it a very versatile bass. You can read more about it on the ACG site here: http://www.acguitars.co.uk/acg-eq01-filter-pre-amp/ The hardware is Hipshot A type Bridge and Ultralight tuners & Marvel straplocks. It also has a Neutrik locking input jack meaning that your cable won't come loose. 35" scale, 17mm string spacing with a 16" radius fingerboard. The neck has an asymmetrical profile (fatter on the B side) which makes it very east to play. The bass is fairly heavy, but comes with the Neotech padded strap I got it with (worth £35) that relieves most of the weight - it's never been an issue for me though and it's worth it for the look and sound! As shown in the pictures it is in near-new condition. I cannot find a mark or scratch on this bass other than some slight corrosion of the toggle switches. I will consider trades for a left-handed Fender Telecaster with money (either way depending on the guitar) to balance the difference. I am looking for local pickup in Manchester due to the value of the guitar and a lack of suitable boxes for it. Happy to answer any questions you might have! EDIT- Want to shift this now, price drop to £850 plus postage or pickup in Manchester
  11. Completely forgot about these! I still have them and have significantly reduced the price of them as I was being a tad optimistic 🙄

    Those are both me. Will probably list them here at some point but trying out the free options first! Let me know if anyone has any questions about them

    Upper horn definitely looks a bit too pointy to me. Might just be bad quality control though? Don't know enough to say really. Got to say though, he doesn't sound like someone trying to pull a fast one. If he's claiming to be the only owner I think that buys a bit more suspension of disbelief than if he was someone claiming he got it secondhand at some point.
