  1. Is there anyone near Ross-On-Wye ?  There's a "Collection Only" bass I'm interested in , hoping some kind soul could do the middle man job.  700 mile round trip rules this one out 🙂

  8. Offer of 2 free Peavey cabs was not to be missed. Trouble was cabs weigh 156lbs each and I live on top floor 🙂 Problem now solved,one step at a time 👍

      Not likely but maybe I should, as a cautionary tale :-)

  15. My BC message alerts have been sent to "junk mail" today. Folks it might be an idea checking your "junk mail" folder and marking any BC messages "not spam".

      Unfortunately it's a known Microsoft issue that all "new" sites go through.

      Because we're on a new IP address it needs to learn that we're not spam. Guilty until proven innocent basically!

      Please whitelist to help teach it otherwise! :)

      I'm spam and so is my wife!

  16. Anybody near Padworth prepared to collect and post Billy Apples Wishbass to me up in Scotland. I'd imagine a box and bubblewrap would be required too. Cheers

      @discreet Steve W has a refreshing "F*** You" attitude to bass building. Don't know why that appeals to me but it does :biggrin:

      I've been tempted many times, but just can't bring myself to press the 'buy' button... Wishbasses are very much what you make them. I just want to make something else, I suppose. -_-

      @kodiakblair Looks more like 'F***k this' most of the time lol

  17. Saw I might be due £16 duty/handling fee on £39 tuners :( Dropped through letterbox half hour back :)

      You do know I didn't actually have to pay the £16.

      No.  Should I put on some soothing whale song and light a joss stick maybe?  Owt to do with Royal Mail stresses me out I'm afraid.

      But go on...

      English Fred and The Baubles would be a great band name. Though I'm not sure whether I'd rather be English Fred or merely a Bauble. Whaddya mean, 'I AM a Bauble'..?? YOU'RE a bloody Bauble!

  18. Saw and heard the Billion Dollar Bass tonight and it was great :-)
