  1. Previous owner of my '83 Ibanez RB920 was Paul Ryder (Happy Mondays).... It was used on their first couple of albums, TOTP performances, videos & live - lots on youtube of it in action. Madchester funk machine! I don't have any provenance in writing, except some messages on FB, as I'm friends with Paul - asking me if I've still got the bass & if I'm looking after it

    Both of those are lovely ....How do they play & sound comparatively?
  3. Airlink Transformers Harlow are good... I've used them for toroidals for US to UK voltage conversions on a GK 800RB & a 400RB
  4. Thank you sir, much appreciated
  5. Hi, cheers no footswitch included... but I'm pretty competent at soldering, electronics etc so will make make one once I find schematic. It does look clean, just missing a slider...
  6. This big beautiful blue beast is in coming soon. I can't wait & neither can my back! 😂
  7. Cheers... yeah the Tokai is a slightly deeper neck profile to lots of other Jazz basses I've tried, though I can't say chunky. The Stringray is to me, chunky compared to it & taking a bit of time to adjust to it... The Jazz is quite similar to my '84 Tokai 'Harpuncher' which has a B-profile neck. My favourite type of neck to play, lovely.
  8. Just got back from a long stint working overseas...whilst away thought I'd treat myself... Now while back in the UK, stoked to be finally getting my hands on these lovelies : 2016 Stingray, 1978 Shergold Marathon, 1984 Tokai Jazz
  9. They are U.S. based. Maybe Mark Phillip's stateside counterpart?
  10. Sorry, it looks like Stevie Wonder's routed the pickup cavity with a bolster chisel on this 'Phat Jaco' humbucker version https://reverb.com/item/22325043-custom-fretless-jazz-bass-phat-jaco-two-hum-buckers
  11. These are lovely pickups. I've got a set of CS 60's in my '84 Tokai, so sweet sounding.GLWTS 😊

    Nice one Clarky, glad you find a replacement - looks lovely
  13. Circa 1986: 78' Fender Musicmaster & H/H V-S amp
  14. After years of using lemon oil, I've switched to Musicnomad F-One fretboard conditioner. I think it's great.
  15. My 2016 MIJ 'FSR' & '78 Mustangs

    I'm a recent convert to these great little monsters. I've acquired two in the last six months 😊 2016 (MIJ) 'Fender Special Run' & a '78 natural. Both love flats, got Chromes on the FSR & Labellas on the '78
  17. CTS 250K Logarithmic (Audio) solid shaft would do you right Something like this https://www.allparts.uk.com/products/copy-of-9-volt-battery-terminals-rigid-plastic-2
  18. Thanks for clarification..I read a review of these on Amazon, which said different, advising extra routing to cavity to accommodate. PM coming, cheers
  19. Hi, could you please advise if these are 'standard' jazz size - i.e. bridge pickup wider than neck? Thanks
  20. [b]Boomstick Bottom Feeder[/b] Boomstick Audio Devices Bottom Feeder filter is the bass version of the acclaimed Mojo Hand Analogue Filter 442. Based on the same circuitry as the original DOD 440, but with a wider frequency range for bass guitar. A lovely 'bubbly' sounding filter, great for dub...and with a fuzz going into it is wicked too! Great review here from Bassfuzz.com [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBLMXDYVK4Q"]https://www.youtube....h?v=wBLMXDYVK4Q[/url] I've built a clone now of this pedal, so the Boomstick is surplus to requirements. In good working condition, with velcro on base. [attachment=248742:20170630_140427.jpg] £60 ono inc. P&P Cheers!

    Gary bought my Tribal Planet gig bag. Came, collected & paid - no hassle straight forward transaction that we all want when selling. Nice chap - recommended. Cheers
  22. I've got a black version of this bass, same year... It's the one I've kept, after recently selling all my collection. Something special about these basses. GLWTS
