  1. Oh no, what awful news. He regularly made me smile and was, as many have said, "one of the good guys"! I will miss spotting his MB1 signature popping up all over the place. MB1
  2. As far as I know we were the only Demeter dealer in Europe. James D is a lovely guy and really knows his stuff. I think I could still get stock from him but it would only ever be on a special custom order basis which would mean no returns available. Probably not worth the risk unless anyone was 100% sure they really wanted something.
  3. Easy to identify which one of us it was by our hair 😂 Phil didn’t much at all Vic had a giant mane (usually under a beenie) Barrie was the ‘silver Fox’ 🙈
  4. Also the opposite can be true I’ve seen a few people here saying they weren’t impressed with a Sadowsky but if there’s one bass that I’ve consistently found to ‘come alive’ at a gig, then it’s one of these. May not always sound great to some people just playing at home or in a store but they seem to sit in a band mix so well.
  5. I’ve never liked Wals. Had a few in the shop over the years and I could never understand what the all the fuss was about. Uncomfortable to play, neck like a baseball bat and all middy nasal tones unless you fiddled with the controls for ages 🤦‍♂️
  6. I hang on to my Streamline as a possible ‘backup’ bass but, 9 times out of 10, I forget to take it with me to gigs 🤦‍♂️

    I remember that one suddenly appearing in the shop one day from the next owner. He was a pro gigging player and this was his main instrument.

    It is indeed! Well, the slatwalls are in my study anyway It was all part of a plan to run the business from the study (it’s a soundproofed, brick built, building with dedicated power supply, heating, 500mbps internet etc). Vic was going to run it as a demo unit 3-4 days a week or by appointment and I’d manage the web site and finances. Unfortunately the loss of our Victor in the run-up to establishing it really knocked me back and I’ve not had the enthusiasm to reboot it. Was about to get going last autumn but got offered a freelance consultancy project on a 12 month contract just 10 days after ‘restoration’ stuff started. The consulting gig pays about the same in a week as I could earn from Bassgear in a month - in fact, it’s actually more like more in 2 days vs what little we used to take out of the business. About 6 of the basses are BG owned plus a small selection of, never used, MarkBass amps, some ATS and a few boxes of strings 🤦‍♂️ Maybe I’ll start by selling some ex-BG stuff before the private ones. Will see how much time I have spare. Just in the process of putting a 2nd band together so that’ll get ‘in the way’ a bit 😂

    Thanks, Nick I’m good. planning on slimming the accumulation of basses down so I just have a few I actually play! There’s currently 36 of the buggers kicking around so quite a few need to go 🙈
  10. I’ve been lusting after this burgundy mist Sei from the first time I saw it about 3 years ago. Finally got round to purchasing it and couldn’t be happier. Almost perfect spec for me 33.5” scale, a P that sounds great solo’d or mixed with the bridge humbucker (which can also be really snarly solo’d), sounds just fine in passive mode, super slim striped maple neck, lovely fingerboard, very low action, through neck with beautifully carved neck to body alignment, bound body, back-angled headstock and even has nice subtle white LEDs on the top of the neck. Sits beautifully on the wall next to my other Sei too 😉
