  1. @joescartwright here she is without the guard. Had to look closely to spot the roadworn stamp 😊
  2. I’ll have to check but would assume it can be. will check in the morning 👍
  3. Considering selling my Road Worn Mike Dirnt P bass. Excellent condition with case and candy. Unfortunately one of the latches on the case is broken. Would consider a cheaper p bass plus cash my way. £750 and can post at buyers expense Any questions please let me know. Thanks Iain P.S. Will get some better pictures after I’ve finished work today!
  4. Hi all, I’m considering selling my Maruszczyk Elwood as I could do with freeing up some cash. Immaculate active/passive jazz bass. Hand made very high specification - Delano pick ups and 2 band eq. Push/pull active passive switch. Never gigged - immaculate. Comes with a good quality generic hard case Based in Blyth, Northumberland. Can post fully insured if required. Would consider a cheaper jazz plus cash part ex. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thanks Iain

  6. Hi lads, cheers for all the responses. Seriously considering binning off my Aguilar for one of the tech21 heads. Also fancy changing my cab out for something with a bit more bite. The barefaced supertwin is beautiful but it’s such a flat response and I barely get my amp above 9 o’clock in most gigs I play! Decisions, decisions!
  7. fair comment but I’m wondering if there’s anything else out there I should be considering?
  8. Evening all, i have this niggling issue around my bass head. It’s a TH500 and it’s great. I run it through a barefaced super twin. I play in a green day tribute band and it doesn’t have that high end that I really want. I’m not sure if it’s the head or the cab. When I borrowed a friends orange terror bass head I absolutely loved it and I’ve never got close to that since. Should I consider a hybrid head? If so which one? Should I stop being a Richard and get on with it? please help!
  9. Yep, all passive. Didn’t think of pickup height so shall check that, however I think it’s more extreme than just that. Cheers!
  10. Hi all, So I have 3 basses, all of which are P’s. My issue is that my Mike Dirnt roadworn is the lowest output out of all of them. My 2003 MIM P is very loud and overly low end heavy (I didn’t even think that was possible!) The final bass seems about where I would like it and has a cheap powered by lace pickup in it. So I guess my question is, how do you all deal with varying pickup outputs? I love my Mike Dirnt and playing in a Green Day tribute band it seems silly not to have one. However, I played a gig last night and didn’t even use it due to the lack of output. Am I being naive in just looking at the pickups and should I be looking at wiring looms and more detailed components as well? Thanks in advance!
  11. Got it on Tuesday and it’s an absolute cracker. Definitely not disappointed! Gigging in Scotland this weekend so she’s coming with me!

  13. Cheers for the comments all. Really looking forward to getting it! Had a genuine need for a backup bass due to playing in two tunings and the thought of only having two basses with me was slightly terrifying. Just didn’t expect to win it for what I paid. Now I need a decent gig bag for it. Another wanted ad coming up...
  14. Been looking for a backup bass with a maple board and stumbled upon a modified Chris Aiken Squier on eBay. Looks decent, accidentally won it, think I’m happy! Should I be? I have no idea! Anyone got one? Any opinions? Anyway, here it is... http://r.ebay.com/4WBUpC
  15. Well... thanks for @only4 I received a lovely Barefaced Super Twin in the post on Friday. Just had it at practice this evening and I’m over the moon. Paired with my TH500 and my newly acquired dark glass b3k v2 (I’ve been a bit naughty, my lass doesn’t know!) it sounds bloody fantastic. Thanks all for your input. Here’s hoping my cab woes are behind me. Honestly can’t believe how good it sounds. And it’s so light!
  16. Purchased a Barefaced Super Twin with a matching cover from Mark. Had a good chat on the phone. Lovely bloke to chat to, lovely cab! Cheers Mark!

  19. cheers for all of the responses everyone. I’m definitely intrigued by the barefaced 10’s. All in all I think I just need to make a bloody decision! I guess I’m unlikely to get a bad cab, I just need to work out what’s exactly right for me. Then I’ll never have to sell it... hahahahaha
  20. [quote name='Jack' timestamp='1509785581' post='3401570'] Where abouts in the North East? There's a few of us with Barefaced stuff around these parts. [/quote] Hi Jack, I’m in sunny Blyth. I’ve been speaking with Paul as he has a bit of barefaced gear!
  21. [quote name='JapanAxe' timestamp='1509787189' post='3401587'] I don't expect Mike Dirnt has to carry his cabs up the back stairs of a social club, or through a crowd of drunken punters and past a taxi rank to where his hatchback is parked on double yellow lines with the hazards on. Just sayin' [/quote] Yep, no roadies unfortunately! Plus, for the price of a fender neo 610, which is what he’s currently using I believe, I can get pretty much any cab as I think they’re around £1000!
  22. My cabs have since gone. I never got to try them with the TH500 but it’s the size/weight issue as I’ve recently moved home and space/stair lugging is a pain. Really want something lightweight and portable. The bergs look spot on but I imagine they’ll be weighty and large!
