  1. The Brand New Heavies. Rhyme Heavy.

    Love these guys. I had the pleasure of introducing them on the main stage last year at Camp Bestival.
  2. Gear4Music - Truly Awful Service

    I've spent thousands with them and only ever had an issue once and that was because they used TNT instead of the usual (and always excellent) DPD. I bought a pair of Markbass cabs and received no tracking info or any indication of when they might arrive. I paid extra for Saturday delivery and they didn't arrive until Monday. I did get my postage money back but that wasn't the point - I needed the cabs for a particular gig. I did tell them however that if they ever used TNT with me again I would stop buying from them.
  3. Looking to move my Mexican Marcus Miller Jazz bass on. Plays beautifully and comes in a generic rectangular ABS case. Newly strung with dunlop superbright nickel 40-100. Generally in good condition, although the previous owner made a couple of mods. There is a green LED on the scratchplate and at some point there has been a different tuner on the E string (d-tuna maybe?) and the holes are just visible. There was also a thumb rest fitted which I have removed but will include. There are some very small indentations on the back of the neck, mostly around the 2nd and 3rd fret but these were there when I got it and they never bothered me. I'm only mentioning them in the name of full disclosure. There's some light play wear on the scratchplate but nothing serious. Electrics are standard (apart from the LED) and function as you would expect. Two brand new Duracell 9v batteries have just been fitted. Trade-wise I'm after a German 4 string Warwick, ideally a Fortress Masterman, Streamer Pro M or Streamer Jazzman. My favourite Warwicks are from the mid to late 90's. I'm open to other offers though. I'm based on the Isle of Wight but can meet in Portsmouth, Southampton or Lymington if that helps. Otherwise I'm happy to post it at cost.

  4. Feedback for Musashimonkey

    I bought a USA Musicman Stingray from Steve and he's a fantastic guy to deal with. The bass was exactly as described and arrived promptly and very well packaged. Can't ask for more than that! Scott
  5. Cheers guys. It just has a single 9v battery though.
  6. I can't believe I'm even contemplating this as this is the nicest Jazz I have ever played, hands down and is the one I thought I would keep forever bud sadly redundancy forces sale. Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, crafted in Japan with EMG pickups. Now, I was sceptical when I first bought this but believe me, the EMG's really nail that tone. Definitely a very worthwhile upgrade. Everything else is standard apart from the battery box which has been very nicely routed into the back of the bass. There are a couple of dings, the biggest being on the back but they never bothered me in the slightest. This has the original Badass II Bridge and comes with a black pickguard. If I can find the white one I will include it in the sale but I'm in the process of moving house! It has Dunlop Strap Locks fitted which will be included of course. I'd prefer to ship this in a box with the neck off as it's just safer that way. Please make sure you are happy re-assembling the bass before getting in touch. £620 shipped & insured (UK Only). I'm on the Isle of Wight.

  7. Get your STATUS-GRAPHITE basses out!

    Had this S3 for a few weeks now so thought I should share some pics. It has a little bit of a heritage...

  8. Up for sale is my upgraded Mexican Precision. Candy Apple Red with rosewood board. Has an EMG pickup and Allparts Omega BadAss 2 bridge as well as a black Allparts pickguard. All these parts are brand new. I have routed a very neat space for the battery under the pickguard. I'm based on the Isle of Wight but can post and may be able to meet in Southampton or Portsmouth. The bass comes with a rectangular Gator ABS hard case. ** Better pics to follow (when my broadband stops playing me up) **
  9. Cracking little Carvin BX500 amp. Parametric and Graphic EQ, switchable 12AX7 Valve preamp, 500w into 4 or 2 ohms. Excellent condition and full, perfect working order. Inbuilt compression too.
  10. Absolutely mint and boxed. Bought 2 of these and then immediately bought a 4x10 so now only need one.
