  1. I have that copy too in the attic. Reminds me of the days of trawling through the bootleg tapes at record fairs as I had a lot of Bunnymen tapes - also in the attic but I doubt they will work now.
  2. Best I could do is the kitchen scale, but this seems pretty much in line with 8.15 with SoundPure's original ad.
  3. Also worth adding that the Serek brand is highly regarded in USA as a boutique brand - up there with the best of them. I think they can be quite cost prohibitive in U.K. and there is a year build time so not quite so much talk about them over here.
  4. Thanks for stepping in Clarky. Yeah same bass! It cost me $2700 plus import duties so really is a bargain price for someone in U.K. into short scales
  5. Does you still have the chrome covers? Lovely bass by the way. I used to have the 57 Fullerton P from 82
  6. If I can shift the basses I have on sale here I will be interested in this one.
  7. Purchased in June 21 from SoundPure in USA. Only used at home. I purchased an additional tort pickguard which I think looks great against white. Will come with the original Decoboom pickguard. The waiting list is over a year for a Serek now so nice opportunity to get one of these boutique short scales. Model: Midwestern Serial: MW-120 Weight: 8.15 lbs Body Material: Mahogany Body Finish: Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish Color: Vintage White Nut Width: 1 5/8" Nut Type: Bone Fingerboard: Chechen Fingerboard Radius: 12-14" Compound Frets: 20 Med/Wide Nickel Scale: 30" Neck Pickup: Novak BS-DS (Parchment) Bridge Pickup: Pickguard: Decoboom Streamliner White/Black/White Bridge: Hipshot 2-Point Supertone Body Thickness: 1 3/8" Overall Length: 40 5/8" Tuners: Hipshot Ultralite Tuning Keys: Lollipop Strings: Hi-Beams Case: Serek Sleeve No offers on this one as I have already given a massive discount (I paid nearly £400 in duties and shipping) **Open to trade for a USA P (Fender/Lakland) bass and possibly cash either way depending on relative value. Also interested in Gibson Midtown Standard. Will ship in its original box but that is at cost and risk to buyer.
  8. This is a pedal I bought recently which has only been used a handful of times at home. MINT condition. Postage included in price
  9. 1973 Vintage Guild - JS II Electric Bass Guitar - Walnut Brown w/ Gig Bag. I imported this from the USA about 6 months ago. All Original! The JS bass models were the direct descendent of the . like the Jetstar, it had a mahogany body, three-piece mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, 21 frets, Chesterfield and Guild inlays and Hagstrom bridge and Guild humbucker pickups. This bass is in very good condition and sounds fantastic. Fast thin neck with a 30.5 inch scale. Guild JS bass chronology Guild bass humbucker circa 1975 - The earliest models were fitted with Hagstrom humbuckers, but by 1971 or 72 these had been replaced by Guilds own pickups, as heralded in this 1971 1967 Last Jetstar bass manufactured - model discontinued in 1969[1] 1970 JS bass launched as the one-pickup JS bass I ($270) and the two-pickup JS bass II ($350) [2]. Finishes: Cherry, Sunburst or Black[3] 1971 Hagstrom bisonic single-coil pickups replaced with Guild humbucker pickups 1972 Long scale (JS bass I LS, JS bass II LS) stereo, and fretless models added to the range 1973 Aswell as the existing finshes, natural and walnut are now available[4] 1974 Optional carved top (advertised as natural models only, although maybe other finishes). 1976 JS bass 1 withdrawn[5] 1977 JS bass I also have some Curtis Novak pickups for sale on BC that are a perfect match for this bass. I did try these pickups but the bass isn't for me so returned it to stock. Will post at buyer's expense.
  10. Is that this bass? https://reverb.com/uk/item/39684845-guild-js-2-bass-1973-1973-mahogany I might list it here in the next few days.
  11. If there is a perfect bass design, this is it. I'd be all over this but too many basses alas!
  12. Certainly agree that their output has gone steadily downhill over the years. For albums Pornography was the height of their powers and after Disintegration they went downhill. The bass sound largely followed that pattern, great on Pornography, but pretty bad after Disintegration with his move to Thunderbirds and similar basses - far too much emphasis on effects as well!
