  1. Question - I see "Stainless Steel" (grade is not usually stated ?) often as an option for fret metal. But I can't recall seeing a Stainless Steel Nut offered / suggested ?
  2. Thanks. So what is the 'correct' string spacing on that bass / pickup ? re: refinish - is it the 'original' finish atm - subject to wear'n'tear ? What is it in terms of surface finish - oil / varnish etc. - can't really tell from a photo. Are you looking to' refurbish ' the current finish or something different ?
  3. Good to hear. Can you tell us what Doug Wilkes advised re Setup ?

  5. Yes - it always seemed an odd - though interesting idea - percussive plates on a fretless. Maybe a case for 'Pressure Wound', 'Half Ground' or 'Ground Wound' strings. Are they still a 'thing' ? They seemed quite a thing last century but maybe not so much now or maybe I was just playing more back then ?

  7. Okay. Let me know. Having something of a general declutter here so please be quickish if you do want any of it. I guess I could post - esp if I take the neck off for easier packaging - but I'm thinking the time and postage cost would be prohibitively high wrt the value of the kit.
  8. No . Bolt on. Neck Plate + 4 Big Screws.
  9. Hi. I've given up on an "Audition" brand bass - probably Teisco in origin. So neck has a back-bow that I haven't been able to fix with clamps / heat. No bridge and body is marked where I tried to sort this. Includes the control plate and wiring/controls but no pickup (as I'm keeping it). Nut included although it has come loose from the neck. Zero Fret btw. So if you want this - £free but you need to collect from Brighton although drop might be possible in nearby Sussex locations. Please ask. Thanks for reading.
  10. For the OP - Apologies if this appears basic - but have you tried with different string brands etc, in case it's a string issue. What are those strings on there in the pics. Having said that I think I have something similar, maybe not as marked, on a Hohner B2A. Pickup and string options are somewhat limited on that given pickup dimensions and double ball end strings for headless. Secondly - on the bass itself - I see it's the Wilkes fretless but with metal plates for percussive slapping etc. Not for me tbh - but takes me back to Stoke-on-Trent when I was a student there and the local Wilkes was making a name for his instruments in the Bass world. IIRC he pulled back from going full on 'commercial' but kept on producing what he wanted to do in a small scale way.
  11. Does anyone have a UK source for this or an equivalent. Looks interesting - I just don't want to pay basically the same for shipping as the thing itself 🙂
  12. Okay - I'm going to say it ! Do you really need to have it white rather than Fiesta Red and spray over a factory finish ?
  13. Errr...No. realistically, semiconductors handling small signals don't get permanently damaged by being underpowered. It's just not a 'thing'.
  14. I looked up the supply on Google/Amazon. Seems its outputs are individually protected. It's possible that the problem is with failed PSU outputs rather than the pedals ? Have you tried the pedals on other knowingly good supplies ?
  15. Yes - with a typical (for guitar stuff) centre negative dc jack the outer barrel is V+ and a metal case is OV. So touching can short out the PSU - although often the paint on the pedal will avoid that happening, That may damage the PSU if it isn't protected against - but not the pedal since no significant current reaches it.
