  1. Excellent transaction with Paul - 1 day delay with the courier - no fault from Paul's side. Great detailed communication from Paul about the Bass which now finds itself in my grubby mitts! As @MB1 says above - deal with confidence folks! Cheers, Lewi
  2. Don't know much about the Fender Yosemite's but certainly for rock you won't go far wrong with Dimarzios....huge output.
  3. Andy Baxter has one at present.......... bit pricy though!

      Cheers Paul - I saw that the other day but it Sold on Reverb to some guy in the US.  Spoke to Andy within an hour of seeing it on Facebook.

    What Lozz has here is an American Deluxe Precision, this was the top of the range series before becoming the American Elite during 2015 and now the American Ultra series..
  7. I often think I'll be able to play this one day.......one day!
  8. Working from home atm, so got Planet Rock on all day (usually only listen in the car on the way to/from work). The new Bush song is pretty bloody good (to my ears anyway) YMMV!
  9. I've got one of these too - love it. Out of stock at Andertons at the minute though: https://www.andertons.co.uk/bass-dept/bass-guitars/acoustic-bass-guitars/ibanez-acousticbass-mahogany-parlor-body-aeq-2t-preamp-ibanez-under-saddle-pup
  10. Another +1 for Tru-Oil. I stripped a Bass a few years ago and did it in tru-oil and it worked a treat. Really easy to apply (literally rub on with a cloth). Let dry, rub gently with steel wool & re-coat, repeat until you're happy with how much it shines.
  11. Awesome that you still have it Ed, of all the drives I've done to do Bass deals, coming to meet you in Salisbury was one of the nicest ones!
  12. Cor blimey guvnor etc. Lovely Bass sir!
  13. As everyone has said, you won't go far wrong with either the Squier or the Sire. The big difference between the 2 is one is active (sire) and one is passive (squier). If you don't know the difference (apologies if you do) - 'Active' Basses have an onboard preamp which have bass/middle/treble controls like you'd find on an amplifier and are used for quick access tone changes (saves you going to the amp). They require a battery/batteries for the preamp to work. I think the Sire does have a switch to turn the preamp off though, so it can work like a passive bass. For a first Bass, I'd be more inclined to keep it simple & go with the passive Squier. That Bass just has a volume control for each pickup and an overall tone control. Less controls to fiddle with an just get on with playing! Hope this helps!
