  1. The colour is amazing, very hard to capture it in photo. My bathroom scale says the bass is exactly 5kg so not the lightest but I've been doing functions with it and never had any problems. A good strap takes care of it 😊
  2. *** REDUCED TO £1200 ono *** Selling a 1981 Fender Special in what used to be Lake Placid Blue that has now aged into a beautiful shade of green. The bass has plenty of genuine mojo and finish craze and it's clear it has been used non stop for a long time. At some point a bridge pickup has been added and it has been wired passively; it's now Volume Volume Tone. The switch is series/parallel for the neck pickup. Unfortunately I don't have the original preamp but I do have the original pickup however one side needs rewinding so I have installed a Di Marzio in its place. The bass has recently had a partial refret and general setup and it's ready to be played and gigged and loved for many years to come. Bass will come in a Hiscox case. Happy to use Paypal as long as buyer is happy to cover fees. I am willing to ship or happy to drive for fuel money as well. Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. Tradeswise I am only interested in a 5 string PJ setup. Any questions, fire away!
  3. Original Fender chrome covers I took off from a nice AVRI '58 I used to own. I am not sure screws are the original ones but they do the job. They come with a bridge mute you can put on the bridge covers for a nice old school thump. Asking for £25, collection from St Albans, Hertfordshire or willing to ship at buyer's cost. Cash is king but happy to use Paypal as long as you're happy to cover fees.
  4. Ion Block Rocker, used to busk but unfortunately the chargeable battery doesn't work anymore but works fine when plugged in. Quite a loud speaker, perfect for garden parties as it has wheels and a nice handle. Very useful for bass practice at home if you can't be bothered to get your rig out! Free to a good home! Pickup from St Alban, Hertfordshire or happy to drive for fuel money.
  5. Wilkinson bridge, 5 screws. Asking for £10, collection from St Albans, Hertfordshire or willing to ship at buyer's cost. Happy to use Paypal as long as you're happy to cover fees.
  6. Alto Professional Zephyr ZMX 52 mixer, barely used and in fully working order. Asking for £15, collection from St Albans, Hertfordshire or willing to ship at buyer's cost. Happy to use Paypal as long as you're happy to cover fees.
  7. Black precision pickguard. It has a few scratches and it has never been installed. Asking for £5, collection from St Albans, Hertfordshire or willing to ship at buyer's cost. Happy to use Paypal as long as you're happy to cover fees.
  8. M-Audio KeyRig 25, barely used and in great conditions. Last key slightly wonky but still in full working order. Asking for £20 or near offer, collection from St Albans, Hertfordshire or willing to ship at buyer's cost. Cash is king but happy to use Paypal as long as you're happy to cover fees.
  9. Beautiful! Is the bridge pickup on the music man sweet spot or slightly behind (like a double buck)? GLWTS
  10. Since I have decided to go back to drop tuned four string basses, I am putting up for sale a couple of my 5 stringers. First up is my Fame Baphomet 5 bought from another basschatter last year while on tour. Those are German handmade basses made by the same people that makes Mayones basses. The bass is very Warwick inspired in look and feel (MEC pickups, sculpted back, 2 band EQ, tight string spacing). The 2 band EQ makes it incredibly versatile and it can be played passive too (volume pot is a push pull pot). The finish is very striking and it's rough to the touch, I have tried my best to capture it in photo. It has a small dink above the fretboard and a small scratch on the neck but nothing that affects playability. It's been a great pairing to my Warwick Double Buck and I hope it goes to a good household where it gets played. Weight wise my scale says it's 3.8kg but it feels much lighter. Bass comes in a sturdy Fame case as well. Those basses are around £800 quid new so I think £450 is reasonable. No trades as I have just bought something else and I don't want to get shot by my girlfriend. I am based in St Albans, Hertfordshire so feel free to come around to try it. Happy to drive a reasonable distance to deliver/meet up for fuel money or to package it up and use a courier. Happy to use Paypal as long as you're happy to cover the Paypal fees.
