  1. From his message to me (hope he doesn't mind): "Hi , thanks for your enquiry , I think if it’s already been refinished before I’d have to take it right back to the wood to make sure we are getting a good foundation, very time consuming but better done once properly. Also you might like what is under the black ? I can only give a very rough guide cost wise but I’d estimate £500 as a ball park figure"
  2. Dave W said it would have to be stripped first before refinishing again in black, so I assume its eminently possible to turn it back to (what I was told on Alembic forum was the) birds eye maple original finish
  3. PS, double-walled packing box just arrived 2 days early so I can post as of tomorrow
  4. The guitar and bass line up for Prince's late 90s Sign o the times tour. Black Spoiler in the background, just to left of middle
  5. ... and Jason Newsted (although his Spoiler had upgraded electronics and supposedly was waterproofed due to his excessive sweating)
  6. Lovely take on a J and solves the main issue (for me anyway) of the weight.
  7. I now have a double walled carboard shipping box arriving next Thursday, so if anyone is interested in buying this bass and requires it being shipped, I will have the facility to do so as of Friday week
  8. Thanks, I worded my question badly. I meant VAT and I see the Belgium VAT rate is 21%. As you may tell, my question was not purely hypothetical. So that's a sale that probably isn't going to happen ...
  9. Just for clarification, if I sell my (say) Alembic for £2k to someone in Belgium, am I right in assuming the buyer will now have to pay an extra £400ish (~20%) in import duty at his/her end ... ie, exactly same principle as if I were to sell to someone in US (though maybe exact import duty rates vary)?
  10. I hope to have shipping materials at the start of next week so for those interested please be patient for a few more days. Cheers

  12. Thanks and replied. I will investigate shipping options although I do not currently have box or bubble wrap ....
