  1. That looks absolutely stunning Andy, superb work.
  2. Seen those floating about on AliExpress for years, weird he chose those as they don't suit the bass at all and there's much better ones on there for not much money. Have a look at something like this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/84mm-Metal-Electric-Bass-Bridge-Fixed-for-4-String-Bass-Guitar-Parts-Accessories/32888000438.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.1.3a616adewKvrwi&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_7_10065_10130_10068_10547_319_317_10548_10696_10192_10190_453_10084_454_10083_10618_10307_10820_10301_10821_10303_537_536_10059_10884_10887_321_322_10103,searchweb201603_52,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=30a103b8-9b0c-47a2-b5b9-a2a6853e8a7d-0&algo_pvid=30a103b8-9b0c-47a2-b5b9-a2a6853e8a7d
  3. Depends what parts are on it, if it's got lots of expensive components and is going to be a few hundred then I'd part it out. If it's just a nice looking cheapy then it would probably sell better as is. Oh and put some pics up!!!
  4. Mine is probably around 12lb, compact body but very heavy (it does have a load of ebony on it though). Never been a problem and sits nicely on a strap, just wish it had one more string!
  5. Audition them again, maybe with more time the first guy will sound miles better and it will also give a chance to the second guy to show if he's going to communicate and not be a total PITA. We auditioned new singers a few years ago, first audition was very close between two of the girls so so we asked them both back and the second time it was an easy choice. Also don't deal with all the communication this time, leave it to one of the other members who were enamoured with the PITA guy. You might find they change their mind when they're the ones trying to organise someone who is so blasé with other people's time and schedules. Recruiting a band member who CBA to reply to messages is setting yourself up for a headache.
  6. Put one of these in my old MB TRV cab, massive improvement and definitely worth doing. Those piezo tweeters they use are awful!
  7. Yeah I also need a long gigbag as I use a Sire which has a poky beak of a headstock! Weirdly the guitar versions of these Gators are never on offer, our guitarist still uses cheap learner bags (his best one by far is a Mex Fender gigbag I got him from a charity shop!) so I always have a casual look to check. If anyone sees any I'd be grateful if you could tag me on here so I can send him a link, will save me having to baby his guitars when loading them into the van.
  8. Not sure you need to go any higher than £100 for anything other than aesthetics or brand bragging rights. I have the full fat Gator Pro Go (think they call it the ultimate now) which is all I could ever need in a gigbag and they're £99, superb bags and rock solid with high end appointments (solid metal clips for strap connections, integrated rain cover etc). I'll be honest I think the Mono stuff looks a bit tacky, like the puffer jackets everyone wore when I was at school:
  9. I think up to £70/£75 is fair for these as there seems to be a bit of a gap in the semi-rigid gigbag market at that price range, I can remember when Protec Contegos were about £70 but everything seems to be £100+ now. Thomann do one at a decent price (a Mono Sleeve "tribute") but it looks a bit cheap compared to the Gator: https://www.thomann.de/gb/thomann_voyager_e_bass.htm Incidentally their next model up (they do a few fancy gigbags now) looks interesting for £100, has a removable storage thingy: https://www.thomann.de/gb/thomann_safecase_80_e_bass_bag.htm
  10. Not seen one of these before, looks cool: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Westone-Super-Headless-Bass/113711446317?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20190212102350%26meid%3D345fb08a3dd94258a74fda267294fdd4%26pid%3D100012%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D192540922755%26itm%3D113711446317&_trksid=p2047675.c100012.m1985
  11. I thought the Chasers were only partly made overseas and were finished in the UK? They were £900 new IIRC and were still high end basses, cheaper but not cheap. Either way the eBay bass is far too cheap, whoever got that is extremely fortunate.
  12. I use the Fishman Platinum Pro EQ into Channel B set to Hi-Z and the gain centred, plenty loud enough.
  13. Yeah it's the same regulars, the 5 string fretless is actually something I'd be interested in but not at that price, if they knock it down to £50 then I'm on it! Weirdly they had the 4 string version of that bass and the 5 string of the fancier model (the 5000 or something?) for about £60-£70 if memory serves, no idea why the fretless basic model is still so much as a deko. I also seem to have missed all the 5 string fretless acoustics they had a year or so ago. That Nashville guitar is the only interesting instrument on there for a good price and they seem to be hanging around despite being cheap, I think they look great.
  14. I've stopped going on, clicking on basses you've been waiting for only to find they're sold out is soul destroying.
  15. I had wondered about those as they've been hanging around the Deko bargain bin for ages. Nice to know you got a good score, looks lovely!
