  1. I’d rather not as I’ll get in big trouble. I’ve just bought a blue boy rickenbacker so need to make some room (and win back some points with Mrs O).
  2. Up for sale is my 1995 Crafted in Japan Fender Jazz 1962 Reissue in Olympic white with matching headstock. It looks amazing and plays great. Everything is working perfectly, truss rod turns freely, pickups, bridge and electrics are original. This was originally a fotoflame finish but, as is their way, the finish cracked badly so it’s been stripped back and professionally refinished in nitrocellulose Olympic white. The headstock has been finished in matching white and the decal, although replaced, has no visible outline. It’s had a full set up too with fret level, crown and polish, lemon oil treatment, relief, intonation and action set so it plays very well. It’s had an after market 4 ply 62 tort reissue pickguard and some new rotosound rounds fitted too. So it’s 25 years old, a Japanese crafted 62 reissue and it plays and looks new! I have a case and if this sells before my Yamaha then it comes in a very good semi rigid foam case. If the Yamaha goes first then it has comes in a decent gig bag. I’d take a part trade where cash is my way. If there was a Squier vintage mod or classic vibe 70s jazz out there then that would be perfect. Thanks for looking. Better photos on their way tomorrow.
  3. This used to be mine and it is utterly immaculate. It’s got no dings or dents and truly belies its age. I’d class it as the best condition bass I’ve ever owned barring new basses.
  4. How about this little beauty I’ve just finished renovating. It’s an 85 USA P re-finished in Olympic white and finished off with an anodised pickguard.
  5. For £900 you could buy a nice cricket bat and a nice bass or you could buy this and have neither....
  6. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  7. Gig Ink are excellent. You may need to send a template or the old pickguard but Tim?? will definitely sort you out and not for a massive price. He’s a member here I think as I needed a really obscure pickguard and he replied to my post on here.
  8. Up or sale is my Eden World Tour DI box in immaculate condition, in original box with instructions. It has 3 band eq, bass boost, mid shift, compressor and Eden proprietary Enhance control. It has ground lift, XLR out or 1/4" jack out. A great box for that hifi Eden sound. I'm selling because I want some grit in the form of a sansamp bass driver - preferably a programmable one. If you have one then I'd trade with cash your way. If not, just but the Eden anyway - its great. Thanks
  9. The best way is to get a spare truss nut, chop it into “collars” of 1/8”, hollow out the thread and use in front of the truss nut....... Worked an absolute treat on a Jap P I had.
  10. Karl Ive sent a PM but there is a potential fix you could try. Remove the truss nut and add a washer or two before putting the truss nut back on. It usually adds more adjustment to get the forward bow out. If it doesn’t quite work, add another washer - it should help and almost solve it completely. Cheers Vin
  11. Added trades. I’d gladly add cash for a Rick 4003 or 4003s. Same for a US 50s precision in trans white. I’d also trade for a Geddy Lee Jazz (mex would be cash my way, jap straight trade, US cash your way).
  12. Price drop to £525 with gig bag or £550 with hard case. No trades. Up for sale is my near immaculate Mark 1 1990s Made in Japan Yamaha TRB4 Jazz Bass 4 string with a one piece ash body in a stained open grain natural finish with a new gotoh high mass bridge and upgraded brand new John East uni pre 5 pot 3 band active/ passive preamp. Controls are volume, balance, bass / treble, Mid / mid frequency select and passive tone. The passive tone works in both active and passive mode so this has huge tonal versatility. It has 24 frets, double cut away, sculpted body and gold hardware. The neck finish is satin so no stickiness here! The condition is amazing for a 25 year old bass and these are incredible basses. These are pretty rare and particularly so in a natural finish. It has gold hardware which, unusually, is unmarked, high mass gold gotoh bridge and benefits from a recent set up with minor fret level, fret crown, fret polish and rosewood board oil treatment. Relief, action and intonation were set and it plays and sounds amazing. It’s got a new set of rotosound 45-105 round wounds on. Based in Chester but can only ship now due to social distancing. Specs are; Ash body 24 frets 34” scale 6 bolt neck John East preamp Nut 1½” 19mm string spacing at the bridge Neck 2½” at 24th fret Weight 8 pounds Controls: Vol, Balance, Bass / treble, Mid / mid frequency select, passive tone. Thanks for looking.
  13. Seymour Duncan STC 2p active preamp in brand new condition. Comes in original box with pots, knobs, instructions etc. Its a 3 pot set up; volume with push / pull slap contour, pickup blend and stacked bass / treble. Has black knobs with it, all fitting instructions and a barrel jack. Bought for a project that didn’t happen.
  14. Brand new black badass III string through bridge with grooved and normal saddles in original packaging. Imported recently but didn’t arrive before I sold the bass it was going on. School boy error but I don’t need it now.
  15. Trades added. Looking for a Geddy Lee Jazz either US, jazz or MIM. Also want a black Ricky 4001 or 4003. Cash balance from me.
