  1. Hard flight case for GK micro combo . Excellent condition. £20 if collected from Nottingham NG9
  2. One GK microcombo - MB150E - works but it cut out on me once in a gig so I dont use it. One GK microcombo head - MBS - III - when turn knobs it crackles a lot and cuts out - suspect needs resoldering inside Both cosmetically excellent. I havent the time or talent to repair them. All for free if collected from Nottingham NG9
  3. I doubt if any of us are expert on Guittarons, but the last two posts make the key points clearly . We all expect well-made and immaculately finished instruments, because these are the standards set by the mass market factories in US, Korea, Japan and China. We expect good luthiers to aspire to these, and to add extra quality that justifies the extra cost. But good and bad are relative , and I guess standards differ in different countries. A luthier in Mexico selling to the local market may have a different perspective. Look at Greek bouzoukis, which vary enormously in their finish quality. Whilst many I'm sure are produced for tourists, others are played. Unfortunately a poor build means less years of useful life, and many Greek zouks simply don't last. I suspect this Guittaron is an instrument destined for the local market. Sell it as such, and someone may buy it. It's the only guitar-shaped bass instrument that can comfortably hold its own in an acoustic session. ....oops, I spent so long writing this the conversation has moved on. Im sure you are selling honestly. Good luck with the sale.
  4. Wow ! It's nice to see a genuine lawsuit. I've never seen one before. 'Lawsuit' is one of those words bandied about far too loosely by sellers. This instrument shows what all the fuss was about. GLWTS .... oh ! it's been snapped up already. Not surprised !
  5. Interesting take on a P bass I thought. Never seen a Bulgarian one. The body looks well made. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORFEUS-PRECISION-RARE-Bulgaria-Soviet-Vintage-Bass-Guitar-USSR-Russia/183567973877?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225076%26meid%3D9ee5390e94654f0b96a51aca0eaa64d1%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D183567973877%26itm%3D183567973877%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A553f2170-7dd8-11ea-8b25-74dbd1800909|parentrq%3A75b722831710ac3d2f91d517ffe5c136|iid%3A1 Rather perplexing undertones in the translation though: 'Attention! If the tool length will exceed 105 cm (41.3 "), I'll be forced to sever the neck and deck for dispatch" . Sever the neck. Ouch !
  6. Met Hugh for the first time recently. Our transaction went very smoothly . Excellent communication throughout. A great guy. Deal with Hugh with confidence.
  7. I use one of these all the time in an acoustic session. It gives a great 'old school' sound with passive basses. Incredibly light too, and you can run it off a 20v laptop battery.
