  1. The lacquer delaminating on the neck is a fairly common issue on 90’s models .
  2. I’ve been looking to try the precision flats but have been a bit confused by their scale lengths. Which type would suit a p bass best? All I can seem to find is short, medium or long +.
  3. Just Sold my Musicman Stingray SUB to Bruce. an absolute pleasure to deal. Buy & Sell with confidence with this fella!
  4. Glad you and the Ray are hitting it off Bruce. It certainly looks comfortable in those luxurious surroundings. And was an absolute pleasure doing business. enjoy your new bass fella!
  5. Now sold. many thanks @BruceBass3901 for a smooth and pleasant transaction. Enjoy the Ray!
  6. Set of Elite flats bought from Paul. arrived next day. Top service. thank you!
  7. When I contacted EB re the rust they responded and replaced them quickly so no problems there. But you would think that at £45 ish a set the QC on these premium priced strings would be more stringent. I think if they were priced around the £30 mark players would be more tempted to try them out as they are a versatile string.
  8. I bought a set a couple of years ago and as mentioned had rust spots on all strings. Emailed EB and got a replacement set which also had some rust spots. Apart from this , I actually like them. They feel a bit grippy when new but soon smooth out. Mine have been on and off a P bass and have mellowed out nicely. Shame they’re a bit pricey but I did get 2 rusty sets for the price of one!
  9. Assuming these are long scale to fit p bass? If so, yes please!
  10. Hi Adam, bit dubious about posting as I don’t have a hard case for it. sorry!
  11. Cheers for the input folks. was thinking I may have to go down the physio route. i had some about 10 years ago for tennis elbow which really helped. What stopped that dead in its tracks though was a packet of voltarol tablets I found in the cupboard which I self prescribed. Doctors are very reluctant to give that out these days. Wonderful stuff though!
  12. They look interesting! Funny you say about the ibuprofen. I’ve been taking a couple before gigs and using gel too.
  13. Hi Doc, I do play in a fairly neutral position
  14. Hi folks, I’ve recently been suffering mild pain up the back of my right arm and weakness in the fingers which I’m assuming is an RSI which is obviously not an ideal situation when playing bass. This started a month or so ago after doing a 3 hour gig. I’m also in the building trade so manual work is compounding the problem. Do others out there use any stretching exercises before playing to avoid this or any useful sites that you can recommend. cheers in advance!
  15. Hi folks, I’ve just put a pickup up for sale in the classifieds and there’s a warning/! Triangle next to the post. Not sure if it’s available for people to see, but have I done something wrong with the listing? cheers
  16. Selling the Seymour Duncan bass lines QP that was in my p bass when I bought it. Have since changed to a more vintage type. Nice and clean with screws. will consider trades for fender original, spb1 or other vintage p type. or £48 posted cheers! now sold
  17. Sorry, sale only. Have just bought a p bass. And you are correct, teal is the new white!
  18. Ernie Ball MusicMan StingRay Sub Bass Teal Selling this to make way for another p bass. in excellent condition. Recent fret dress by 12th fret guitars, 3 ply pick guard + original included. when I got this the black neck paint was coming off in places and felt sticky so it has been carefully stripped, sanded and finished in tru oil. a couple of minor blemishes in the body and on headstock. sale only thanks just acquired a new p bass! comes with non original gig bag. collection from Eastbourne area. Cash on collection preferred. Viewings welcome.
  19. Scouring around, there doesn’t seem to be a much in the way of stock so maybe production has ceased.
  20. That’s kind of what I was hoping to hear that, they have similar qualities to labella’s but not quite so spendy! Think I’ll be giving them another go. thanks for the input all.
  21. Hi folks, what are people’s thoughts on these flats? And how do they compare to La Bellas and other brands. i tried a set when I first started playing and was really surprised by the classic sound they produced. I never had them on for long as they weren’t ideal for the pub covers band I was playing in but since acquiring a second p bass, I was gonna have one bass with flats and one with rounds. From my brief experience with them , I liked the sound and feel so will most likely be buying some again. Just wondering if others have had good or bad experience with them. cheers!
  22. Hmmm, was just thinking of moving my sub on. Don’t like the sound of this sellers remorse.
  23. Not really sure what the problem is but I have my brother in laws 92 stingray 2 band. This also seems to suffer from a lack of output. Up against my P bass and a usa Sub Ray it’s like it’s being played with the volume rolled back a third. I also think there could be a fault in the preamp
