  1. Blond was an option, check out the price lists towards the bottom of this link https://guitar-compare.com/catalogs/fender-catalogs or here: https://guitar-compare.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/1977-April-1.pdf I honestly can’t ever recall ever seeing any though that had a grain like the 50’s. Might be worth a Gbase or Google image search.
  2. Good move 👍 Lighter than stock, low tension, strings may help get on with the neck.
  3. These guys do a 32 P https://bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MARUSZCZYK_Jake_C4P_Sea_Foam_Green_32.html
  4. Bit of a long shot, but maybe it was going spare after the early trend of putting in DiMarzio was done. Or it was bought from Roka’s in Denmark St who at one point had a huge surplus of old Fender spares. 🤔
  5. That’s great to hear, in better times I’d love to go visit and catch up with him. It’s amazing how the years pass by...
  6. So glad you mentioned Dave, I worked with him in the early 90’s as a 15 year old, and had no idea about Eternal. Couldn’t of happened to a nicer guy.
  7. Mostly had good experiences, 5 x high end basses and other bits and pieces, though had a couple of frustrating little wobbles. But despite threads like this, I still think our bass community is better off with a store like BD.
  8. I sold @James79 a bass recently - James is new to buying here but everything went smoothly, and its clear to see he’s a pleasure to deal with and a good guy.
  9. These are the previous version, used lightly for one week on a Jazz Bass. This version has darker blue silks, and are more akin to Chromes (but a little different). Nice strings, lots of punch and clarity for a flat. 45 65 80 100 Price includes post.
  10. I hadn’t before, but just tried my P Bass and get what you might be feeling. I like the strings, but the gauges are bonkers - works for me though on some basses.
  11. Absolutely, and the superlight A string and light D add to the mix of that I reckon. edit - doh, just seen that mentioned in later posts 😂
  12. Yeah I found the pup and pre’s make a big difference on the Flea’s. I was lucky enough to compare the purple one to 4 other FB4’s with the same pup, pre and bridge. The purple was always my favourite, it just had a touch more punch, but 3 were amazing too, and 1 was just average.
