  1. Beeswing; Richard Thompson Magdelene Laundries; Christy Moore (cover of a Joni Mitchell track} ...are 2 that stick in my mind.
  2. [quote name='Bassassin' post='1051547' date='Dec 8 2010, 12:05 PM']And I'd really like to have explained to me exactly how the chart success of a department-store advert tune functions as an indicator of any kind of quality or talent. Or indeed why I should show "respect" - whatever that is - to those who purvey such things. Jon.[/quote] Me too....if she can't handle, or her brother can't handle her getting slagged off, then she and he are in the wrong business...i stand by my first opinion and not because i dislike Elton John, his early work is pretty damn good...this cover is not.
  3. [quote name='Truckstop' post='1043736' date='Dec 1 2010, 01:29 PM']I never listen to women. On record and privately. They're all concieted, lying, money-grabbing morons and they make me sick. True story. Truckstop[/quote] Bloody feminist
  4. [quote name='firmo' post='1043577' date='Dec 1 2010, 11:35 AM']I think it's alright.[/quote] I think that it's annoying, twee, sh*te..as is everything else i've heard from her.
  5. I've just had a llisten to the version on 40 licks and it doesn't sound so very far out of tune... if at all.
  6. [quote name='matski' post='1038834' date='Nov 27 2010, 02:42 PM']Maybe it was custom built by a Mexican though...? [/quote] Yeah, a fake mexican.
  7. Faker than a fake thing at a forgery convention and is it just me ? but do those 'inlays' look like Scotchbrite reflective tape for bikes and sh*t?
  8. [quote name='Pete Academy' post='1034411' date='Nov 23 2010, 08:46 PM']Eh? [/quote] He's talking about the stuff Woolies used to sell in the 70's.
  9. [quote name='silddx' post='1023846' date='Nov 14 2010, 07:56 PM']I wear them because I like to look like Audrey Hepburn [/quote] MASSIVE FAIL!, your nose is too big.
  10. [quote name='Doctor J' post='1017957' date='Nov 9 2010, 06:52 PM']I've never really gotten into them but, to be honest, I haven't tried too hard. As someone who can't get enough classic rock these days, where should I start with these guys?[/quote] Live At Budokan is as good as place to start as any.
  11. Most pbasses have foam under the pups to lift them when you adjust....the ones on this bass are probably perished and have lost their elasticity.
  12. Back on sale due to the buyer needing the bass by today and my courier letting me down.
  13. [quote name='rohan' post='1000104' date='Oct 25 2010, 02:19 PM']Does the sale include a case of any kind?[/quote] Nope, sorry.
  14. Back on sale due to the buyer needing the bass by today and my courier letting me down. Have a Mexican Jazz Bass in Sunburst for sale. Comes with pick up covers and has a black control plate fitted, though i have the original control plate and pickguard which the buyer can also have. Condition is good with some slight marks on the neck where someone has been playing with a ring on...none of the marks are through the varnish. It also has a small chip on the lower edge of the body. Other than these flaws the bass is in pretty good nick, neck is straight and truss rod working. [b]ASking price; £225 inc courier, payment by Bank Transfer only, No Trades thank you.[/b] For pics of the bass please click the link for Flickr in my sig.
