  1. SOLD Nordstrand Power Blade Precision Bass Pickup The unfeasibly nice Andy Irvine referred to these pickups as being filled with fosters and vinegar. And he's right. They're in-your-face yet deliver a strong fundamental. If you want a prominent sound without a tinny clank-infused high-end - these will do nicely. I sadly do not have the mounting screws for this set but that's reflected in the price. Happy to send these to the happy buyer for the extra cost of P&P.
  2. Dimarzio Ultra Jazz Bridge Pickup DP149 Black To put it simply, this is a great Jazz Bass Pickup. It's features side-by-side magnets which make it humbucking yet its articulation levels deliver a Jaco-like burp and quack as a good Jazz Bass Pickup should. Basically, you get a dynamic single-coil attack without all the hum and mucky-muck. Ideal for a PJ bass! Sadowsky have been using variations on the Ultra Jazz pickups for years and it'll get you into Marcus territory with ease. I still have a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz set on another bass and had these set aside for a future PJ project that never got off the ground. A Jazz Bass Pickup on Steroids is what this be. And with a lot more midrange than our cousins at TalkBass hint at. I'll happily send these to the lucky buyer for the cost of P&P.
  3. SOLD EMG Geezer Butler Precision Pickup If you're reading this advert, you already know ALL about this pickup. You might even be aware of Jimmy on Talk Bass and his enthusiastic praise of this fine passive unit. DO believe the hype. It's a great pickup. I had this installed on a Reverse Double P Bass that I recently sold. I had originally hoped to use this fine piece of machinery in a new project. Sadly, this hasn't materialised. This is JUST for the sale of the pickup. No pots/knobs/bits/bobs. The pickup was hard-wired into its previous installation (which is when the photo below was taken) but, if you fancy making use a EMG's solderless pots, you can easily accommodate that with the purchase of one of their quick connection leads. As it happens, this is ready to be installed into any 'normal pot' and I can't recommend a 500k option highly enough. You'll just need the pickup screws, foam and you'll be playing Paranoid a la Mr Butler in no time. I'll happily post this for the extra cost of P&P.
  4. Scratchplate for Jazz Bass w/Reverse Precision Pickup Route (Mark Hoppus Signature) made by WD Custom Pickguards USA I had intended to transform a Jazz Bass of mine into a Mark Hoppus-adjacent instrument and ordered this. In effect, it's a Jazz Bass scratchplate designed to accommodate a reverse P-Pickup. It'll fit any V2 Fender Mark Hoppus Bass Perfectly but could also be used to modify an existing Jazz Bass. It's got a reflective Gold finish and has never been installed. A bit like Nigel Tufnel's Bass VI guitar, this has never been played. Go on. You want it. £25.00 is a small fraction of what it cost to order this. Get it. Now. Please.
  5. SOLD Good enough for 'arry. Good enough for you. This is a Seymour Duncan Steve Harris Signature Pickup. The SPB-4. Despite its Iron Maiden-pedigree, this is a surprisingly versatile pickup. With it's prominent midrange attack, it holds its own against the EMG Geezer Butler P but with a more prominent low-end. For those people who really care about DC values, this comes it at around the 13 mark BUT it doesn't sound hot. It's vintage-hot. Not as scooped as a Quarter Pounder but no slouch in the oomph stakes. And fit for an ancient mariner. I had this installed in a Precision Bass that recently got sold and I had hoped to add this bad boy to a new project. But, that's not going to happen anytime soon. And, yes, I DID use the phrase 'bad boy'. Not very Maiden of me. Apologies. The pickup resides in East London and I'll happily post it for the cost of postage and the elusive packing.
  6. He demonstrates the spirit of this pedal beautifully (alongside all his many other fine Tech 21 demos).
  7. Is the SG Bass short or long scale? I've always wondered whether that impacted on neck dive or not.
  8. There is some neck dive. Not as bad as the long scale Epiphone EB3 basses. I found that a wide suede strap dealt with the problem a bit. But, inherently, there is some dive.
  9. EB3/SG Copy from Bass Bass Centre's 'Bass Collection' Range 'The Blues Bass' Manufactured in Korea in 2011, this is a well made EB3 copy from The Bass Centre's excellent 'Bass Collection' range. It was released as 'Blues Bass' model about 9 years ago and only had a limited run. It's Medium Scale (32") and currently sports flatwound strings. The Mudbucker & Mini Humbucker pickups balance with each other much better than the units on an actual EB3. And the Medium Scale is a great compromise between the short scale setup of the original and the long scale versions that Epiphone currently manufacturers. Features a set neck and comfortable action. The bass doesn't have a case but it's available for collection OR I can pack it away in a box if someone needs to have the instrument shipped. The quality of this bass is superior to the Epiphone EB3s I've played and it really delivers that Jack Bruce/Andy Frasier vibe. £185 is cheap as chips as well. Grab yourself a bargain.
  10. Is it a Jazz? Is it a R**k? Is it a P? Is it a Sandberg? It's SuperBass. Well, a Volante as it happens. FIrstly it's a Retrovibe. Designed by Bass Guru/Genius/Force-of-Nature David Konig in Bath. And built to his exacting specifications in India. This is a classy instrument. This is from the first run of instruments that Retrovibe oversaw just prior to Chowny's involvement. The attention to detail is fantastic. As is the setup. The body is alder. The neck, which feels like a good Jazz Bazz offering, is maple with lovely block inlays and binding. Thanks to the 4000 series inspired upper horn, there's more mass to this instrument's body and that means more tone. Or, at the very least, it does to my ears. The machine heads are Wilkinson apart from the Hipshot Extender that I added for the E string which offers Drop D & C with a flick of a lever. The bridge offers top-load or string-thru options the neck is super straight with a truss rod that operates as it should. The weight comes in at 9.6 pounds. The bass's original pickups were good but I added a set of Delano pickups and it really made the instrument come alive. As I haven't got a case for this bass, collection would be preferred but I'm happy to entertain shipping in case the new owner is based far away from the capital. Love this bass. A recent emergency operation on my dog Molly, however, has forced its sale. This is most definitely a reluctant parting.
