  1. I quite like that! There's a bass one too: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Personalized-Bass-Guitar-Small-Mini-Version-Of-Patented-Products/283146781160?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D6a1e6c8f6e77413aab43660b4c57eef7%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D283146791957%26itm%3D283146781160%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  2. I had one of these, my first amp! Does it have the sticker that says "Make this Gorilla growl!" on it?
  3. I've mentioned this guy's "creations" on here before, this seems to be his masterwork though and that fact is reflected in the price: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Greek-Bouzouki-Electric-Bass-Guitar/273968649656?hash=item3fc9cdd5b8:g:5CkAAOSwFMpdVqEo A bridge our favourite converter/bodger would be proud of: A headstock which could easily be used for deep cavity searches: What can only be described as "innovative" string routing and a nasty deep crack running parallel to the fretboard: Sincere apologies in advance to any of our members of Greek heritage.
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/String-Winder-Peg-Removal-Puller-Electric-Drill-for-Guitar-Bass-Repair-Tool/163147067455?hash=item25fc52b03f:g:CBkAAOSw8PJb5bH~ Have one similar to this, was a couple of £ and takes the monotony out of restringing.
  5. Same here, Sarzo for me is the guy who played a USA Cirrus with Dio. Always wanted a proper Cirrus, stunning basses IMO.
  6. Why is this so cheap, these are serious high end basses aren't they? More to the point why has it still here 3 weeks later?
  7. Wasn't talking about you in particular, you can play it detuned and that's what I did before I had to switch to a 5. The theme of the thread seems to be songs which need a 5, in reality I can't be bothered detuning at gigs and it's easier just to have an extra string. Even with a detuner it's extra faff especially if you need a low B/C. EDIT- Also I didn't mention 24k Magic anyway, no idea why that video is there! I was talking about Uptown Funk (which needs a 5 really) and Runaway Baby (which can be done downtuned).
  8. Recorded on a 5 string Precision IIRC, goes right down to the C. Runaway Baby also really needs a 5 as the main riff is played an octave lower at points. Sure you can blag it with a 4 and detune but I can't be bothered with that at a gig - just use a 5!
  9. Guy Pratt might disagree with you there as he wrote and recorded the original line using an octave pedal.
  10. They're hex key rather than push fit aren't they? My V1 ones are anyway, should be a little hex screw on the side of the knob you can loosen. The non-stacked pots are push fit IIRC.
  11. I did type out a written description of what all the controls do but this is probably easier to follow!
  12. Also check the bridge on this acoustic: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acoustic-students-guitar-old-Japanese-model/192961101514?hash=item2ced60beca:g:FzYAAOSwPMpdEOwd Neck completely goosed? Not to worry, just attack the bridge with an angle grinder to get the action down and label it "not for solos or picking" as it won't play above the 5th fret. I mean it's not like you can buy a decent starter acoustic anywhere else for £70 is it?
  13. There's a worse one that that: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rat-strat-Hohnor-with-tapped-coils/193030173463?hash=item2cf17eb317:g:CSEAAOSws6ldRpM9
