  1. PS if you think there's some movement around that cracking at the headstock, then its possibly had an impact trauma at some point. If it was just cracking lacquer, i doubt you would see movement. As for the nicotine yellow, i'd hazard a guess and say thats probably the cellulose lacquer thats aged rather than nicotine stains. There maybe enough thickness of lacquer to take this back with some wet n dry and then buffed again for a gloss finish. If not , it will need taking right back to paint and re-lacquered This could all be total rubbish, so wait and see what some experts might tell you.
  2. Not sure if the Elites had a brass nut like my SB900 and other SB Proll's but easily bought and profiled to suit. My SB900 had some bridge bits missing, and i contacted Aria UK and a nice chap on the phone said he'd look for some spares, and about 3 months later, they turned up in the post. That was down to the great institution we call Royal Mail ( or the Post Office ). He couldnt find everything i needed ( understandedbly - bass is over 35 years old ) but a visit to a nut and bolt shop got me the rest.
  3. Yup, listened to that and brilliantly played by Marta. One thing, she says no chorus on the bass, but if you listen, it definately does have that effect on it. Its impossible to get that sound without chorus
  4. Nice find RB. What an enormous tone. Love it
  5. Marta - very accomplished bassista. Loads of vids on YT
  6. I bet the buyer's over the moon
  7. SEASONIC PC POWER SUPPLY , 500 WATT 100-24OVAC TAKEN FROM WORKING PC, SO NO PROBLEMS ALL CABLES AS ORIGINAL, NOTHING CUT OFF POSTED F.O.C.
  8. 8 GIG KINGSTON HYPER X DDR2 RAM KHX8500 2 GIG MODULE X 4 TAKEN FROM WORKING PC, NO PROBLEMS POSTED F.O.C.
  9. The documentary featuring Becker and Fagen on the making of Aja , was the most anal constructiuon of an album i've ever heard. But this is how they rolled at the time, getting jazzier and jazzier after Cant Buy A Thrill Someone in the past, IIRC, labelled their music " sickly sweet " and the extraordinary amount of time they spend auditioning guitarists who could come up with the magic lead guitar they were looking for that lasted 10 seconds, has got to be believed. I'm a fan, having said that, but The Royal Scam is tops for me, not Aja. I don't have any Beatles on disc, although i think they were clever writers. Dylan ? Overrated , apart from the wonderful Blood On The Tracks
  10. Very similay, at least the headstock is
  11. I can think of so many quips here, that i cant choose
  12. Lovely looking and sounding bass, and i speak from experience because i own an SB900. My electronics layout is different to yours, but maybe its because yours is the Batwing headstock and mine is a slightly later Open Book headstock. Like you i had Armstrong replicas built, but by Aaron, not Kent and it was both pickups in my case
