  1. Also a great bit of kit for home recording your bass - I used one through lockdown to record bass parts πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» This is great value for money.
  2. This is an absolute bargain for a Shuker. Love my series 2. GLWTS.
  3. Lovely - I had the same bass some years back and like and idiot sold it! As said already, it sounds nothing like a thumb but has a unique but still Warwick like tone. I see like mine this one has had the nut upgraded to the brass version which gives more zing! The other nice thing about these is that they are usually quite light. if you decide to sell in future, give me a shout πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  4. That is the most beautiful single cut I have ever seen - gorgeous!! GLWTS
  5. Agree with @hooky_lowdown - Yamaha make really decent basses and incredible price points. The think I've found (having owned a few over the years) is that they seem to have nailed down the quality control really well, so the general build fit & finish is usually good. I have found them sometimes to be a bit on the heavy side. One of my very early basses was a Yamaha TRB5 (first series) and I thought the bridge on that was brass (I may be wrong) and the sustain was excellent. The only thing often found on them was not so great jack inputs, easily fixed by switching to a better quality component. So have you swapped rhythm guitar for good and come over to the dark side? If you have, just be aware that you will never appear in any music videos !!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ We are invisible !!
  6. Oh, and I forgot to mention that for a Fender 5 string, it weighs a very sensible 9.0 lbs !!!
  7. Just got this - used to have one in natural a few years but sold it for some reason !! Have always liked the black ones as it makes the large pickguard less obvious. i Just love the tinted neck and gold coloured block inlays. Looks mint in the pictures, but in fact its nicely "road-worn" for its 10 years, with little dings, chips, scratches here and there which will make me less worried about putting the first mark on it! Set up was poor when I got it, so have adjusted the truss, all the saddles, intonation etc and it plays really nicely. Swapped out the completely dead strings for a partially used set I had to give a bit more brightness - plan to put Elixirs on when I can get some at a sensible price! I know there are mixed thoughts on the pre-am/pickups (I'm assuming these are stock for now) but it sounds good, and there is no discernible single coil hum and no apparent earth/grounding issues - might be a different matter when recording or on a fully lit stage etc. Tone controls as most of you will know are treble/bass and boost/boost only. The bass boost is ridiculous, but set at about a 1/3rd it gives a nice tone. Pondering whether to replace the chrome knobs with fender-style black ones (the original would have been the unusual half and half which I'm not keen on).
  8. Ooh very nice indeed πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» I love that owners can properly look after the oiled/waxed finishes unlike the gloss stuff!
  9. Nice bass & Nice chops!!! GLWTS πŸ‘πŸ»
  10. Phew - only got 4 strings!!! Absolutely gorgeous. GLWTS πŸ‘πŸ»
  11. Great playing - had never heard of Jordan Mackampa, but having listened to his stuff on YouTube (with your cool bass playing) I'll definitely be checking out a gig!! GLWTS
  12. Someone is going to be very happy - an absolute peach of a bass!!
  13. You’re teasing us with the gig bag pic !!!

  15. Lozz bought my Fender P bass and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Lovely to chat about favourite bands and stuff like that. Top bloke - would recommend to others whether buying or selling Thanks for your purchase Dave
