  1. Yes - I have a different plan... And it's the best thing...irreplaceable really!

  3. This bass is now withdrawn - keeping it and doing something entirely different! It is a lovely thing...

  6. I've had two near misses with Nirvana... 1) I had a ticket for the London show in 1994 and was disappointed to hear that Kurt had a Rohypnol issue in Rome and wasn't making it to London (rescheduled). Needless to say the ticket for the reschedule was eventually refunded. 2) The second (in '89) was a friend at university exhorting me to go and see Tad with a little known band called Nirvana touring their new album, Bleach. Couldn't be bothered, mainly because I thought Tad were awful and wasn't really switched on to Nirvana at that point. Said friend ended up on the town with the little known support band who slept on his floor after a very jolly night out. He thought Nirvana were 'very nice and were definitely ones to watch' Aha ha ha...
  7. Just have to say, these basses are so, so, so good! I've been around the block with a few different (some MUCH more expensive) Sixers and the TRB6P blows them all away.

  10. Very nice indeed. I tend to think Spectors should be all white or all black.
  11. This is quite a niche sale! I have a pretty much unused new strap extension for a Gruvgear Gear Solo (or Duo ) strap that I don't need. It came with a Patitucci strap but is a bit short so I'm replacing it with the longer extension. It's the one with 12 holes. I've put a strap lock on to test the length but that will come off. So if you need something this obscure I can pack it up and send it your way
  12. Gallup is great and so central to their sound...which is great too 👍 Shame if he left on bad terms...
  13. I might be picking up a fretless J with a rosewood board but if I do I will want to have the fingerboard coated. Any recommendations for a luthier who has done a good job on their fretless? i.e get a v hardwearing, shiny result that would stand round wound strings without marking up/ wearing out... Cheers!
  14. That bass looks like a thumpatron. V nice!
  15. Thanks for the amp Jim! A lovely chunk of wattage
  16. And the original gigbag has just the right amount of olfactory 80s studio funk. Legendary.
  17. While I can't jump into buying this back right now (it's my old bass) I have to say it is a VERY nice one and in fantastic condition. Sounds absolutely stellar and has an incredible straight neck, low action etc Not only a modernist melding of art & design (ooh get you), it's a FANTASTIC bass GLWTS!

  19. Going by the amazing birdseye on the neck that's a 'Classic' right? Fabulous bass!
  20. Thanks - northwest look quite inexpensive. How's the quality? Anyone used one of their J bass bodies in a build?
  21. I'm entering one of those 'find a purpose for those nice jazz bass bits and pieces in a box under the bed' phases. I will likely go for a status fretless neck but where do I get a high quality, finished, ash, jazz bass body in the UK? There are a bunch of obvious sources but I'm looking for the good stuff Cheers, Nick
  22. It's not just me then. 8 jazz basses and counting... My issue is that I also play Stingrays and Js seem to have 'booty issues' when I use both types of bass in the same context. I think I need to figure out how to get the best bounce out of jazz. I will definitely be getting one soon and I love the AVRIs (I bought one of your AVRI 75s back in the day). That looks gorgeous!
  23. Indeed. The trouble with Wal basses was that they had a lot of deeply shonky attributes. They also had a whiff of the mid 80s muso (complete with mullet, very short strap, black polo neck and dubious slap skills) which scared a lot of us off in the mid-nineties. I was on the cusp of buying one a few times in that price band but in the end spent my money on other instruments (mainly Stingrays)...which is a solace nowadays when I realise I can't afford one! I really, really should have bought a fretless Custom though. I've become deeply obsessed with Mick Karn of late...
  24. Hang on, is that Bunny Wailer? (v nice Bravewood btw)
