  1. Ah! ha ha yes! It is just that. Dingwall put strap buttons at the higher position, which makes the bass kick out a little and, if I am switching between basses also meant that I couldn't use the same strap for both basses (as I use Dunlop Dual strap locks - which Dingwall put on their premium instruments) - So, rightly spotted, there's a button in the mid position. It can of course be removed no problem but both buttons I suppose do offer a little protection when the bass is sat on floors etc. Hope that helps!
  2. I still have my set of pitch pipes and my very first book I learnt from that my Dad got me just after he got my first bass for me. That would have been 1989. I still have my little Marshall bass amp too from the same year. The book I still use to teach with and the amp sometimes comes out for practicing, though it needs a service.
  3. Bought at the start of the year, this bass was to be part of a brand new band, but owing to an unfortunate series of events in my life, I had to step out of the band who have subsequently just finished recording the first album. This is a tough one as I really do love this bass and am a massive supporter of Dingwall. I am however sitting here with 4 four string basses and a hole in my bank account. Shipping to be arranged by and will be the responsibility of the buyer. The bass will be packed safely in the original Dingwall shipping boxes. Purchase by bank transfer. Collection of course is welcome. This model and specification is currently £1250 at Bass Direct. Here's the specifications: http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Comb_4_Natural_Gloss.html Not the sexiest of photographs, I'll get some better ones done in some decent light, but actually this bass is stunning

Pictures are from the previous owner (I can remove if I have overstepped the mark) in which you will see that the hardware has been tastefully upgraded to gold - official Ibanez mono-rail bridge pieces and YES Gotoh tuning keys are fitted Shipping to be arranged by and will be the responsibility of the buyer.

  5. You know that feeling where you contemplate selling everything you really don't need and keep the bare essentials? Yeah, something like that.

      Noooo. You just need a bigger house, or an extension, or trade away a child. Any of those is acceptable surely!

      Oh mate.. I DO need a bigger house WITH an extension. Tough one on the kids actually. I kind alike them both. Maybe I could get the older one to do some Saturday work on the oil rigs to bring in some extra cash. Possibly a bit on the little side to operate the cranes and the like though.

      Anyone know the lottery numbers coming up??? Or has won the lottery and not sure what to do with the odd 100 thousand? lol

      It's worse than that for me.  Sometimes I end up in a bad place mood-wise, which results in feeling like I should sell all the gear I have and then start again from scratch.

      Inevitably, this happens in moments of deep, desperate, despairing dissatisfaction with my sound. Don't judge me - we've all chased tone dragons, I'm sure.

      Thankfully, most times I manage to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater and keep a vaguely sensible head on my shoulders. 

  6. I thought I might bump this one as it's due for a refresh! What you spinning these days folks? Wanna add some cool bass to the shared playlist?
  7. And this one from @SpondonBassed above has got to be one for the quotes thread.. just because..well.. I said so he he he!!
  8. Watch the Chernobyl TV mini-series. If you are 40 or over, you will probably recall seeing the news when you were young. You will want to see this series. It is very, very good. Moving and true to the events that shook the day and following years.

      I was quite excited when I had the message, rumour has it EBS only made 50 of them

  10. https://www.gotaukulele.com/2015/05/something-fishy-fishing-line-as-ukulele.html ok, so it turns out it is d0-able!
  11. It's happening again! I've just tried posting twice on the https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/341025-have-you-ever-purchased-your-old-bass-back/#comment-3741713 thread - and although my browser has gone through the motions, nothing has appeared. I've checked with a different browser (logged out) and no post to be seen! WIERD! I'm going to leave it for a bit then try to post again using a different browser. Just thought I'd flag it up.
  12. Awww thank you Pete! - The maple board PB70 basses are also rather lush!!
