  1. Sandberg don't have any old stock, so it looks like a trip to see the Bass Doc.
  2. I'd read somewhere that Sandberg weren't supplying them for the same reason they changed the design of the California models. However, I have sent a message on the off chance, but I'm thinking that I'll have to have one made ......... probably the cheaper option!
  3. Thanks, I’ll keep him in mind should I want something more unusual. BassDoc who is local to me can make me a Tort plate, I was just seeing if I could source a Sandberg scratchplate. Cheers Charla
  4. Bit of a long shot, but does anyone have or know where I can get a Tortoise shell Scratchplate for my Mk1 TM4 supreme? Cheers Charla
  5. I bought an EBS HD350 from Barry, straightforward transaction, promptly posted with no hassle. Never met him but from this deal and his comms he sounds like a good guy, must say that I've always had a positive experience when buying/selling on Basschat. Thanks again Barry, I like mu Reidmar but it's good to have some good old EBS heft back again! Cheers Charla
  6. Always fancied an HD350, I used to have an TD650, which was way too much for my needs. However, I'm in South East Northumberland, which is a tad more than 50 miles from Exeter!
  7. Dood That's brilliant and very much appreciated. The Tech thought it was a pre amp problem but said the Eden wasn't straightforward to reverse engineer and didn't want to waste my money. Looking forward to taking the Eden out once it's sorted. You've made me a happy chap and once again Basschat comes to the rescue. Double Cheers Charla
  8. I have an Eden wt405 which has developed an intermittent fault. I took it to my local Tech who contacted Marshall as per the Eden website advice and was advised that they didn't have a schematic for the wt405, apparently it's too old (made in 2005). Just wondered if anyone on here has one, or can find a link as I'm otherwise left with an amp I can't trust to gig. Cheers Charla
  9. I totally understand why you're offering collection only, but why do you have to be in Worcester when I'm in Northumberland! Mind you I fear it may be too wide to sit on top of my Barefaced Compact?
  10. I've just bought Brian's USA Precision, straightforward transaction, honest description of the Bass and good communication; looked pristine in the photos but Brian told me about marks which are barely visible in the flesh. The bass was well packed, the case was wrapped and sealed then placed in a cardboard box which was well padded; I've bought from one well know Bass shop which doesn't package as well as this. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Brian again or recommend him to anyone else on Basschat. Cheers Charla
  11. Thanks for the feedback. There's an EBS Multidrive for sale, think I might drop Old Horse Murphy a message, but I might wait until I get the Double Drive back and see how it sounds?
  12. I have a EHX Bass Blogger which doesn't like being on my pedal board, it makes a sound like an earth hum when I switch on the effect. I have a Tech 21 Double Drive which I have out on loan at the moment and just wanted some feedback about the suitability of using this for bass or should I buy something `bass dedicated'? Cheers Charla
  13. I did 2 deals in quick succession with Jack; bought his Barefaced Compact, then traded for his Barefaced Midget. Very straightforward transaction and honest person to deal with. I would have no hesitation to buy or trade with Jack again.
  14. Jack, I live in Bedlington and would like to come and have a look at the Compact. I'll PM you my details. Cheers Charla
  15. ikay Message from my mate to say the red wire from the bridge pickup had a break in it and it's sorted. Just needs me to go and check the out the bass functions as it should? I'll be glad to have it back in action. Thanks again for the help. Cheers Charla
  16. I don't have my bass with me as it's with my mate who can solder a lot tidier than I can. But here's a pic with the old pot, which is connected in the same way. I'll get an updated picture when he returns from his holidays! Cheers Charla
  17. ikay I've wired the new balance pot as per the previous replacement and the bridge pickup isn't working. To be honest it looks as if the original red wire from the front PU is missing. Wondered is the wiring for the non original replacement that was in the bass was different? Cheers Charla
  18. Hello Folks I need to replace the pan on my BBNE1. I bought the bass second hand and the pot isn't an original and need help with how to wire the new (yamaha) pot. My mate who is an electrical engineer has done the work, but he seems to think one of the wires from the bridge pickup is missing? So if anyone has a schematic or a photo of the inside of a BBNE1 I'd be very appreciative of a copy? Cheers Charla
  19. Shame you don't live anywhere near me as I would have loved to have a look at this? Nice looking bass though.
  20. Surprised this is still here at this price?
  21. I got one of these in a trade last year and it is now my No1 bass. Mine also has the mark between the pickups .................... how strange?
  22. [font="helvetica, arial, sans-serif"][color="#282828"] I have a Squire VM fretless with replacement Gotoh Bridge and Wizard Pickups. And I live in the North East.[/color][/font] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Cheers[/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Charla[/font][/color]
  23. Did a Dep for a Band back in the 90's at a local Fair Day. Finished our set and deposited my Wal bass on my guitar stand. While I was getting my case the bassist from the next band tried to move my amp and up turned the Wal face down into the stage. Managed to be gracious, although on later inspection the lacquer had cracked on the back of the headstock and my bridge pickup stopped working. Whilst on Holiday I visited Wal in High Wickham, they repaired my bass the same day and did a set up and restring ........... all for £60. Legends.
  24. Just bought Kenny's Squire VM Jazz Fretless, very open and honest communication and very well packed for posting. Transaction was easy and friendly, he comes highly recommended. Cheers Charla
