  1. I may be mistaken, but I think the bass player in XTC used one as well?
  2. My first bass, I brought a 1979 version in 1980 and kept it until 2012! It was my only bass. Then I discovered GAS and Basschat and the rest is history, but it started with that B301.
  3. Brilliant Sandberg California VS5 Bass guitar. The finish is “soft aged” which means it looks like it’s been well used for a number of years without being wrecked! This finish is a added cost option from new. This five string bass is active with a two band preamp for bass and treble. It is based around the “P” style bass with a split pickup in the centre position. Perhaps the best thing about it though is that it is beautifully light at only 3.52kg (7.76lbs) and it balances perfectly with no neck dive. Finally it comes with its original quality gig bag.
  4. First off I took out the bridge piece and cleaned it off, then changed the stock D’Addario strings for LaBella medium scale white nylons, which were only just long enough even though this is a short scale bass. I have to say the tone is much improved! And the E is not booming and is more in line with the other strings, although the A is fractionally quieter, but it is vastly better, so I’ll see how I go before doing anything more drastic. The sound is still rather scooped, but might be fine with suitable e.q.
  5. That’s very interesting Kristo, mine’s the natural colour as well. I’ve had Arron make something for me in the past, that’s a good idea, although I must admit I’d rather keep a piezo if possible. I enjoyed your track to; I do something similar with my band, although it kinda stalled before it got out of the blocks in March for some reason 🤔.....
  6. Thanks for the advice Maude; I’ll try those out! 👍
  7. I’ve got an epiphone masterbuilt century deluxe. It’s an acoustic arch top with a piezo in the wooden bridge. I like the bass but not the amplified sound so much; the E string is much louder and boomy compared with the others and generally it has a very scooped sound. I’m interested in changing the piezo system. Does anyone have any knowledge, recommendations or comments? I’d be grateful for any thoughts.
  8. I’ve had this fantastic active 5 string since brought new from Andertons. It’s the top of the range American model with 2 Humbuckers, 3 band 18v preamp and asymmetric neck. Great range of tones Including P equivalent, J equivalent plus a range of its own sounds. Pretty much as good as new with no dings or dents. Includes original Fender case. Weighs about 9lbs8oz

  10. Still got one left. Make me an offer? 😉

    Jet Harris

    Jet Harris was a great bass player. The bass lines on the early Shadows tunes have a lot more to them then people realise. I agree, underrated.
  12. The Stirling I had was very light, not quite 8lbs but it was less than 8.5lbs if I remember correctly. Very nice bass; didn’t quite gel with it long term though.
  13. Hi would you be interested in a trade with my Michael Kelly Dragon Fly  5 string semi acoustic bass. 

    Regards Alan.

  14. Would love a Deep 4 or 5 to go with my Mouse and MB2. Yours looks gorgeous! I’ve also considered a Shuker Artist and I also love the Rick Turner Renaissance; I’d be really interested to know your thoughts on how these three great basses compare.
