  1. Neck is now sold, but body available loaded or unloaded.
  2. Yes, I had one as my main bass for about three or four years before I sold it a year or so ago. Its a good bass. Good weight, balanced well. Neck is quite wide which is good if you like wider string spacing. It’s a 35” scale so good B string. It does feel a tad bigger length wise than a 34” scale, but not hugely so. Also it flattens out the further up the neck you go, so it’s a C shape at the nut and more of a U shape towards the body. There were some rehearsals and gigs where I played it and it sounded fantastic. I’m not sure what I did on those occasions but it always sounded at least like a good Jazz bass. (Mine was passive VVT). It’s well built and slightly smaller body shape than a traditional Fender.
  3. I have had interest for the neck separately and I have agreed to hold until the weekend. So I can sell the body separately now, or after the weekend, I am happy to sell complete. The body wood is alder, and the weight is good, less than 9lbs from memory and it balances well.
  4. It sold and hopefully is being used by its new owner. It was a great bass though.
  5. Thank you. I’m pleased to say I’ve now sold it, but it was a really nice bass.
  6. You might need extra long strings if you string through the body. I’d guess you could get away with it despite 35” scale through the bridge.
  7. Very nice! I imagine the upgrades would be very worthwhile and would make this bass as good as any.
  8. Hi thanks for all the interest; the bass is now sold and hopefully being enjoyed by a new owner.
  9. Contoured body brought new and finished in this lovely “antique white”/cream by Bow Finishing. Oiled neck imported from USA has Jazz width/D profile. Seymour Duncan SCPB-2 pickup. Bespoke custom pick guard/scratch plate designed for this rear routed body - ideal if you want to remove it for that “Dusty Hill” look. Vintage style through body bridge. KiOgon wiring harness. Cost over £1,000 to put together. What more to say? It’s a lovely bass. Offers invited. 😉
  10. There are plenty of lightweight options beyond Hofner (nothing wrong with it though). I’d definitely go short scale AND make sure the balance is good (Some short scales aren’t). Although I think they sound great, I would not advise the Jack Cassidy - it’s long scale, the nut is a stretch and it neck dives! As ever choice depends on budget, but with SS options from loads like Musicman, Sandberg, Fender, Ibanez, Gretch there is loads out there!
  11. Good question. I don’t know the scientific answer, but I’ve had a few switchable active/passives and almost never use the passive option on those basses. I also have passive only instruments which I use and like just as much. 🤷‍♂️
  12. I’ve got the same one. Very nice amp. GLWTS
  13. I’ve been bad... 1. Ibanez 1005MS 2. Duke double bass 3. Musicman Stingray (Arrived today! 😉) All since November.
  14. This model is finished in Olympic White and has a cool contrasting Black pickguard. I purchased it new last year and have only had chance to gig it a few times before lockdown. Consequently it is in first class, near new condition with no scratches or dings. Comes complete with its original Fender gig bag. Fender says:A slim and playable maple neck has a C-profile and a Pau Ferro fingerboard with a contemporary 12” radius which allows the player creative freedom and maximum expression as they construct their basslines. Two Vintage voiced Noiseless single coil pickups deliver a preferred tone with no background hum. Active electronics give you a powerful onboard 3 band EQ for shaping your sound as you play. The active circuit can be turned off completely via a mini toggle switch: this gives you even more sounds at your fingertips! This is a great chance to get a bass in near new condition for significantly less than the new price. (New cost at Guitarguitar £899).
