  1. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1464368090' post='3058965'] This, for many of us here, is the equivalent of 'Groundhog Day'. There is no mileage left in this tack. [/quote] Than why bother replying in the first place !
  2. [quote name='Woodinblack' timestamp='1464366830' post='3058944'] Try and advertise a ric clone on eBay* then, and see how well that goes! * or gumtree or preloved.. [/quote] Have seen LOADS of photos on eBay - was that not the point, that its the image that we can now show?
  3. No I did see that (hence the comment) so would seem Mr Hall has scared you, but seems he's not scary enough to worry eBay or the numerous Bass gear forums on Facebook?
  4. [quote name='Sammers' timestamp='1464345131' post='3058620'] Probably not, no [/quote] If thats the case - why is it 'illegal' to even advertise them on here

[quote name='The-Ox' timestamp='1464302681' post='3058385'] [url="http://www.coda-music.com/fender-custom-shop-masterbuilt-slab-body-closet-classic-bass-pink-paisley-p-23548.html?oscsid=8f31f64fabac0b34c145352435abf814"]http://www.coda-musi...145352435abf814[/url] tried this today, only 10 min drive from my house. I wasn't a fan of the amp, the bass played nicely but the tone was a bit dull for me [/quote] .........[color=#000000] [/color][color=#000000]£4,469.00 [/color]
  6. As a kid I often saw Phil Lynott walk past my Aunts house in Walkinstown. Bit random, but it was Dublin
  7. [quote name='Grangur' timestamp='1464330131' post='3058428'] So you should buy a Fender if you want a Fender logo. Fixing a Fender logo on a non Fender bass is theft of Fender's Intellectual Property and at some point someone will try to sell it as a Fender. A logo isnt simply a decoration. A logo is a certificate of authenticity and quality. Putting one on a non-Fender is a low-down thing to do; which I'm sure you never would as you're a decent guy. /rant [/quote] Absolutely !!!!
  8. A squire is a nice guitar made to a lower budget and hence it says squire not fender. Changing the logo due to aesthetic preference is possibly the most original 'justification' I have ever heard. Anyhow, have to go, have to put a Bentley badge on my [url="https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=chrysler+with+bentley+badge&client=safari&rls=en&biw=1468&bih=996&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwixtbeb1PjMAhVRFMAKHU8RBdQQ_AUIBygB"]chrysler with bentley badge[/url]
  9. [quote name='discreet' timestamp='1464272211' post='3058102'] Exactly. Leo sold Fender in 1964 so all the Fenders made since then are fakes, surely..?? [/quote] No because in any sale part of the valuation is IP which would have transferred to the new owners.

  11. I am not necessarily talking about this website but I have seen on various forums adverts for (usually) DIY or cheap looky-likey basses that someone has applied a Fender transfer to the headstock. I find it annoying, it devalues the brand and would have thought it was at best legally dubious. OK so the seller may be 'honest' to admit whats been done, but who is to say what the next owner will do. I actually have a friend who bought a Jazz bass with what is quite a well applied Fender logo, I knew the second i played it that it was not right, but he has had it for a few years and i did not have the heart to tell him. I know Alembic will not even post a replacement logo even if you have bought a bass direct from them (and they record every sale etc) you have to return the instrument to them to have it replaced - a real pain in the bum BUT I can see why they do it. Yet I often see Fender transfers for sale, even on music supplies web sites, really do not understand why Fender allow it. Rant over
  12. [quote name='Paul S' timestamp='1464205782' post='3057612'] The seller I bought from was Dangleberry music. [/quote] Have used them for other items both via eBay and direct and in every case they were great, would add I have no connection with them but its nice to know there are lots of good UK based suppliers out there, just a matter of finding them. Perhaps there should be a section for that, based ONLY on user feedback . not subscription?
  13. [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][quote name='BigRedX' timestamp='1464186803' post='3057344'] And once again this mis-information appears. All that marking it as a gift does increase the threshold at which VAT and import duty becomes chargeable to £34.

  14. [quote name='Grangur' timestamp='1464120201' post='3056772'] I got a good pickguard for a P, and good service from northwestguitars.co.UK I'd use them again [/quote] Wow, just looked at the website, have bookmarked them thanks
