  1. Second hand black n' maple Sadowsky M4 jazz, bought for £999 out of Guitar Guitar in Glasgow. Traded it with Karlfer of this here parish and pretty much regretted it ever since.
  2. Love that neck, lovely colour, great job. 👍
  3. I like playing on the configurator, selecting the most expensive options each time, just to see how ridiculously expensive / garishly pimped up I can get it...no intention of buying, but it idles some lockdown time away...🙄🤪
  4. I was waiting on the "aaaaahhhha ahhhhahha hhhahahaah" bit...!! :-)
  5. I used the wet n' dry method, moving progressively through the sandpaper grades until 2000. As you say, very satisfying, bordering on therapeutic, I found. Unlike JohnDaBass, I did have the cheek to call mine a 'build'...!! 😂😂
  6. I haven't any experience with Herrick. Funny you say that about the Jess Loureiro pups, as those were going to by first choice too, but I done some research on here and the feedback wasn't great, orders late, missing, unfulfilled, no contact etc. I was wanting a split single coil to minimise the potential for noise feedback, so ended up ordering via Bass Direct. Biggest pain for me was waiting over 4 months for the bridge to come in, was being manufactured to order by Hipshot to order in the US, and ended up taking over twice as long as quoted. I'm still tempted to do another......
  7. Yeah, it's a Guitarbuild walnut body and Allparts Tele neck, with Hipshot hardware. I tried to base it on a Mike Lull 54P, like a modern take on it, so I ended up with one at less than half the price of what a Lull would cost! 😂 Would never back for it what it cost to put together, but like I said, I would never sell it...got my wee boy's initials and DoB on the decal, so hoping when he's old enough he'll take an interest and I can pass it on to him.
  8. I love it, very bright and punchy, I use a ToneStyler Bass Ten with it, so it really offers some very usable tones, but can almost be too trebly when full on. First time for me playing, let alone even trying, a single coil so it was a bit for a stab in the dark, but I absolutely love it. I play in a Who covers band and it really works for the Live At Leeds sound we try to emulate on stage. Aside from self builds never holding their value, can safely say it's the one bass I'll never part with already.
  9. Snap...build near enough the exact same last year...! Finished in Tru-Oil too, but not to as highly polished as yours.
  10. We've been forced to pull the plug unfortunately. With one band member who has COPD and is currently on day 2 of self-isolating himself for however long it needs to be and a second who has a four year daughter who's had umpteen heart operations in her short life, it simply wasn't an option for us to continue and take the risk. Band wise, it's a real shame as we had some gig lined up, at least 6 between now and June, but common sense prevails and it simply isn't worth the risk to ourselves and our families for the sake of a gig or two. I'm very conscious typing this though, that the band is a hobby for us, beer money if you like, I fully appreciate the quandary full time musicians who make your living gigging must be in.
  11. We played at the Lanarkshire March of The Mods in Blantyre on Saturday there, it was a great day, but there seemed to be a feeling amongst everyone in attendance of 'well, it might be a while until we get to do it again'. Saturday was the 1st of four weekends on the trot for us, which is more than the 3 gigs every 2 months we've been kinda averaging...however, this Friday coming has just been cancelled and we're now fully expecting them all to fall like a deck of cards one after the next.
  12. Can I ask, where you getting your bodies from? I'm particularly interested in the Explorer one above, might be keen for a future project myself, seeing as I play in a Who covers band.
  13. That's lovely, loving the birdseye board...wish I had the cash to spare...
  14. I recently put this together, my modern take on a '54P - first gig on Saturday night there, sounds maaaaaasive...!
