  1. She's back https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lynne-The-Knackered-Bass/392953948857?hash=item5b7de16ab9:g:HTUAAOSwU~9fZheL
  2. Keith Christmas - Forest and the shore . . . . . . nearly 50 years old and every word rings true today. He's still going strong as well. Good on 'im!
  3. Another if anyone is looking . . . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Cowpoke-Precision-Bass-Special-Black-1995/133263588547?hash=item1f0720fcc3:g:jT0AAOSwiS9d6lkD . . . has "weird and wonderful" in the description!
  4. Very, very nice. Light weight too if the 3.9 kg is to be believed. Some dings to bottom edge. Is it 2006 or 2014? And not sure why the vendor has described it as an Aerodyne - I normally associate those with a slabby body and P/J pickup configuration?
  5. Passed me by, but checks out. Quick Google of "Blackpoole Relic Works" comes up with some interesting results. Particularly the open letter on the Seymour Duncan site. Looks like he struggled to meet any kind of demand. So this would be a somewhat rare completed one.
  6. Excellent strap just received, exactly as described and completely smooth and trouble free transaction. Thank you.
  7. I really do have no idea I’m afraid. I can’t see anything obviously amiss. It could just be high frets. It is otherwise a great bass and I’m enjoying playing it again. Just anyone wanting a low action all the way up the bottom strings may be disappointed.
  8. Thank you. It is still for sale. It has been on a bit of an adventure though! I had sold it on the well known auction site. I'd used it for band practice beforehand, had it set up nicely and was confident of its quality in all aspects. The new owner quickly informed me that he had fret buzz on A and E and wanted to return it. When I got it back I set it up to spec again and there was indeed some buzz on the E. So I've raised the action a tad higher on that string than I would ideally like. And I've used it for 2 more practices. It's still a fantastic bass but I don't know what to do now. I can't really charge full asking now I know there's something not perfect about it. If you are interested do please make me an offer. I'll even post it this time if needs be.
  9. Back up starting bid £1400 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warwick-Dolphin-Pro-1-5-String-Bass/202690286029?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190212142712%26meid%3D37277d7d3f00409ea231844f574e3b28%26pid%3D100037%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D202689141122%26itm%3D202690286029&_trksid=p2047675.c100037.m2107 Interesting info about the pink panther theme bass line.
  10. There is another book, Fender Bass for Britain . . . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Bass-for-Britain-The-History-of-the-1966-Slab-Bodied-Precision-Bass/382933872967?epid=1319999442&hash=item5928a33147:g:UIQAAOSw4uhczP2A . . . and, reading reviews of the latter on Amazon, maybe some “issues” between the two authors? Looks like there’s a story there as interesting as the one about the bass itself!
  11. A lot of the Japanese copies of this era did certainly, but I don’t recall ever seeing a Tokai that said so.
  12. Oh that brings back so many memories. That combo and a Tokai Hard Puncher were the sum total of my equipment for much of the 1980s. Hard to believe but that 100W was more than sufficient for everywhere we played. Missing its Stingray and Carlsbro nameplates from the front otherwise I'd be tempted.
  13. Paul Raymond, who sadly passed recently, on the back there . . . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-American-highway-one-Precision-Bass/264290409356?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Daa66d91944e24e7fad0fcdc4832b9759%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D264290409356%26itm%3D264290409356&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Acc51bbce-632c-11e9-a9e4-74dbd180869b|parentrq%3A3935791516a0abc2ce1a7da7ffe6cd78|iid%3A1 . . . is it really a Highway One though - that logo, maple neck, string through body?
