  1. Great watch, thanks for sharing.
  2. Maybe so, but what I've never understood about this is why would promoters and venues let it happen? Their agenda should be to put on the best show for the audience. As a headline band you'd have to have very little self belief and a massive ego to stipulate static lights and poor sound for any of the support bands. I've been lucky enough to play some reputable venues with excellent house engineers so never actually experienced this myself, but I see it as a punter occasionally.
  3. Sorry for the late reply! 3.9kg according to my bathroom scales. I thought it was slightly lighter than this to be honest, certainly feels it with the comfort strap!
  4. Looks like a '54 Precision reissue. What's going on with that G string though?
  5. Hi Pete, just to confirm, is this the Gen3 spec? I'm also guessing this doesn't come with a cover?
  6. We seem to like moaning about our sh!tty bandmates, but are you secretly the sh!tty bandmate?! 😮
  7. What's the neck profile on this and width at the nut?
  8. I like playing with dead strings I put new strings on in Jan, they just played gig 31 last night...
  9. Had a request for pics of the hardware and frets so have also attached these to the top of this thread.
  10. Had a lot of interest and some very tempting trade offers, but this is still available for the moment... With regards to trade options, it's really only going to be a high end PJ with a jazz neck that I'm interested in. Happy to trade with cash adjustment your way if necessary.
  11. I've owned this since 2008 but am pretty much only playing passive J or P type basses these days. EMG pickups, 18v Aguilar OBP-2 preamp, factory-installed strap-locks (I'll include a comfort strap with the sale, as pictured below). Serial number shows this was made in 2000. The bass is in decent overall condition for a 19yr old instrument, the hardware shows some signs of wear and the top of the P pickup has a very shallow groove worn into the wood. Included in the sale is a Gator hardcase which is in a like-new condition, albeit about 10 years old. The bass is available to play in Portsmouth/Southsea - drop in for a cuppa and give her a noodle! I gig regularly across the South East so may be able to meet up or deliver within reason. £900 cash, would also consider trades for a passive PJ with a Jazz profile neck. Feel free to ask any questions or ask for more pics, I'll do my best to get back to you ASAP!
  12. I met up with Mick to sell him a bass. He's super easy to trade with and a top bloke! Cheers mate, enjoy the bass!
  13. Big respect for doing it and stepping outside of your comfort zone. If nothing else, it's £150 and an invaluable learning experience. I've been asked to dep by the agency my band goes through and I've always said no; I've partly not got the desire to want to do it enough but mostly I don't have the minerals or self belief to put myself in that situation, so respect to you for doing it.
  14. This. I've been in the same band for 10 years now, I was the last one in and they've been together for about 15 years. We've had our moments but there's a lot of mutual respect and we're good mates. We gig a lot and it just wouldn't work at all if we were only thinking of ourselves rather than the band as a whole. I hope some of the stories in this thread are exaggerated because I'd not only not put up with that sh!t but there's also no way I could be in a band that didn't respect me enough to remember that I exist and need to stand on stage somewhere.
