  1. I've a few sig basses , all Peaveys. Not one was bought due to the "artist" involved ๐Ÿ™‚ Peavey Sarzo and the follow up RSB model , Ellefson Scorpio DE, Jeff Berlin Palaedium, Randy Jackson's RJ-IV and finally the Bromberg B-Quad. All decent enough ; the stand out sig from Peavey wasn't really sold as a sig, just had the fella's initials. Tim Landers designed TL series. Three on the right ,not the pointy one๐Ÿ‘
  2. As usual Andy is bang on the money ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Pity you didn't buy it start of the month. Complete bass sold for ยฃ38 , would have made for a very affordable conversion ๐Ÿ‘
  4. Not sure what the shipping would cost but you can buy them split new in India for ยฃ46 ๐Ÿ‘ https://www.devmusical.com/Product/Givson-Challenger-4-String-Electric-Bass-Guitar/P366/130
  5. No can do I'm afraid , you definitely lose something with split singles IMO. Been a bit difficult here to make comparisons as only the Fender wears roundwounds. Two with tapes have standard singles . Common ground would be the three with TI flats , snag there is the standard single is a ceramic Peavey . Much as I'd like to claim my massively over wound Bloodstone custom is the best , in truth it's Jess Loureiro's 51 split. Could be the age of the strings or the pickup height , might just be the arrangement of the scatter wind . Whatever it is , the Loureiro sounds fantastic. Still sounds a bit polite compared to the Fender mind but fantastic all the same ๐Ÿ˜€ @Bassfinger The Bloodstone at 28mm is 9mm taller than a standard single coil.
  6. Dropped in no problem but that was my pine slab body , pickup rout maybe shallower in a CV. I'll post the overall pickup height later today , well passed this laddie's bedtime ๐Ÿ˜€
  7. Are we still European ? It'll be hard to beat Martin Herrick in Wales or Dave at Bloodstone. https://www.herrickpickups.com/products/tele-51-bass-humbucker/ If you'd like to hear some audio , discreet did some for this project build. After a couple of years with me , v4.0 now lives with stewblack ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. @funkle Dave built it as 2 coils and yes , it's massive. I thought about the Duncan "Stinger" after seeing folk on TalkBass mention them. Thing was ; Duncan's Custom shop wouldn't do business with Europeans , nor Thais ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Never been impressed by Duncan pickups in the past so took that as an omen. Dave quoted an extremely attractive price and it was here in 4 days ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Annoying ! Might raise a smirk the first time you visit the site , gets old very fast after that. Split singles I have enjoyed. Jess Lourerio. Herrick. Bloodstone. This one's a bit tasty , had Dave build me an 29.9k ohm overwound split like the Duncan Stinger ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Tis a marvelous thing ๐Ÿ™‚ I'd pre-ordered so it arrived before shop sales went live ๐Ÿ˜€ Can't believe 7 years has passed. Solid bass , weighs about the same as the JB-75 ๐Ÿ‘ Mate pestered me for 2 years to sell him it . Now the bugger is playing my Retrovibe Super-P , shall I make enquiries ๐Ÿ˜
  11. I don't worry about it either. First job was unloading cement wagons ; no forklifts back then , driver just dropped the hundredweight bag on your shoulder and you were off to trot ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Don't recall any reports of light weight JB-40s , my pal's 40 weighs about the same as his JB-75. It's as Mark said , big bass bodies made from ash tend to be heavier.
  13. I feel pangs of jealousy , what a cracking bass . No wonder you left the Zodiac behind ๐Ÿ™‚
  14. Another pain free transaction with Ian , strings this time . The Man's a credit to BC ๐Ÿ‘
