  1. I wan't busy. Someone contacted me by chance. I thought it was a better scenario all round. Is an initial deal agreed on Bass Chat somehow legally or morally binding? It's a transaction for a bass guitar, not the 10 commandments. Dude, re-read this again when you have calmed down. Think about what you have gained by taking me down in public. NOTHING.
  2. I guess I am not cool. Point taken. But I received an offer from someone who was willing to collect the bass in person. Part of the deal we had discussed was me paying half of the shipping fee to get the bass to you in the Netherlands. Initially you wanted me to pay all the shipping costs. I also was nervous about shipping an expensive vintage bass. It was more that than the money to be honest. It's like buying a house...sometimes these things fall through. It's life. Until money has changed hands, I reserve the right to consider all offers. I am sorry that you sold your bass, but that is your decision, and not one I was aware of. No hard feelings, but stop with this slagging me off in public. You have already sent me two angry messages. Now that is what I consider the definition of NOT COOL to be. Peace
  3. On hold, subject to completion of transaction. ****************************************** A very clean, all original version of these highly collectable basses. The Mustang bass is popular because its 30" scale, and distinctive sound. Notable users include Tina Weymouth and Bill Wyman. It was the last production bass designed by Leo Fender before he left the company. Probably the finest playing, and best looking basses I have had the pleasure of owning, and a very reluctant sale due to financial reasons. As the pictures indicate, the bass is in fine condition, with just the occasional ding and scrape as you would expect from a 50 year old instrument. The matching headstock is rare, and to purchase this bass would be a sound investment, as value will only increase over time. Comes with hight quality non-original hardcase, and is strung with flat wounds - it plays like butter! Full set of pictures can be found here: http://imgur.com/gallery/NpFo1bU I am happy to ship the bass to UK mainland or Europe at buyer's expense.
  4. A truly stunning red Hofner '63 verythin bass. This has lived a fruitful, but by no means traumatic existence. It had only one previous owner prior to myself - a bassist in 60's military jazz band. It was sold to me by his daughter in law, in the original Selmer case it came It had literally under the bed for a long time prior to that. It was in superb condition upon me receiving it, although I noticed that the neck pickup did not have the same level of output as the neck. So my tech installed a "like for like" replacement genuine Hofner staple pickup in the bridge and put in a new volume pot. It now plays like an absolute dream, and the tech has been begging me not to sell it, but sadly I have some unavoidable financial commitments coming up. I have since been informed by a Hofner specialist that rewiring the pickup could have sorted the level problem. I have therefore included the original bridge pick up and pot should the buyer wish to restore to its 100% factory condition. https://imgur.com/a/LWRC7L1 Shipping etc is possible. I hope you can see pics, let me know if there are any problems doing so. Thanks!
  5. An all original Hofner 500/1 violin bass. This is definitely a 1970s model, I think late '70s because of the metal tuning pegs, 70s pickups, black control knobs, darker sunburst colour, "Hofner" logo on the scratch plate. As you may know, in those times, Hofner made no effort at all with serial numbers and the only way of dating an old Hofner is by educated guess of the sum of its parts. Previous owner looked after it well, not gigged heavily. Structurally, the bass is sound, see photo for one small dent on the back neck and a slightly unglued nut, none of which is structural and none of which affects playability. All the electronics are working well. There are no body cracks. Being a 40-year old bass, there are plenty little marks but again that's character. It has new Pyramids gold strings on it, the standard for Hofner basses. Sounds: FANTASTIC! Powerful thumpy Hofner and plays effortlessly. I really love the 70s pickups. It has its own original case which is good in terms of retaining the basses value, but not practical for transportation as they were notoriously thin. So, I will include in the price a brand new Hofner gig bag. Price also includes shipping within the UK. I can also post within the EU at cost. The price of all original Hofners with OHSC are often MUCH higher than this, but need funds to put towards a guitar asap, so priced for quick sale.

  6. Right then. Dropping the price to £1000 cash. That's just insanity for this rare piece of Gibson history! Priority goes to any one who can collect in person.
  7. Hi Shaggy! I'm in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Typical luck - I played a gig in Swansea last Friday. I have a friend who lives out that way, or would be willing to ship. PM me for further details. All best, Nick
  8. Super rare and sought after 1969 Les Paul bass, made at the Kalamazoo plant, MI, USA. This model of bass is often termed the Les Paul Recording, or the Les Paul Professional, however these were names of guitars; Gibson literature of the time only ever describes this model as a Les Paul Bass. It was a companion model to the Les Paul Personal and Les Paul Professional guitars. The production run of these basses was short, so not many of these about - everything on it is stock to the best of my knowledge, so a real investment piece. Famous users include Suzie Quatro. The pics tell you everything you need to know about the condition. This thing has been well loved, and the back of the body has had a bit of a scrape. Looking closely at the front of the body in the light, you will notice the lacquer has started to crack as befits an instrument approaching it's 50th year. It is not what you would describe as showroom condtion, but it has mojo in spades and looks incredible. Be aware that because of the high quality wood used in construction (including Brazillian rosewood), this is one heavy bass - not for the faint hearted. Here is the description and specification as appeared in the Gibson catalogue at the time: "The frequency response, range of harmonics and crips clear tones of the LP bass will exceed that of any electric bass on the market to date. This instrument is the only bass equipped with two low-impedance, humbucking pickups, and the slim single cutaway design is especially popular with todays groups. FEATURES: low impedance electronics and pickups. Clear grain British Honduras mahogany with center crossband body construction. Three piece laminated British Honduras mahogany neck construction. Buffed and polished clear walnut finish reveals all the fine grain-lined features of the basic wood. Brazillian rosewood fingerboard. Chrome-plated Schaller machine heads with sealed gears. Nickel-plated Tune-O-Matic bridge. 18¼" long, 14" wide, 2" deep; 30 1/2" scale, 24 frets" Comes with a modern Stag hard case. UK mainland shipping would cost approximately £25, and would be willing to ship abroad at buyer's expense.

  10. Beautiful example of a Fullerton plant CBS era USA Mustang, stipped back to a natural wood finish. Serial number dates the bass to 1977-78. All stock parts. Clearly signs of being roadworn and well loved as seen in the pics, but why would you have it any other way? This thing has serious mojo. Plays great and in good shape, having been recently set up and restrung by a top guitar tech.
