  1. What’s all this about?

    One of the photos still shows the crack in the lacquer around the upper cutaway, but it could be taken for a reflection.
  2. What’s all this about?

    I think there's a Report option to say that a seller has used your pictures.
  3. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

    I'm guessing it was typed on a phone...
  4. Jaydee Celeste

    It's best to start with a blank canvas.
  5. Bronco (Mustang) Conversion (now £200)

    I'm having a good evening, thanks! It started life as a Squier and is, despite the fake logo, still a Squier.
  6. Bronco (Mustang) Conversion (now £200)

    A £100 bass with a Fender logo becomes a £200 bass.
  7. Another mystery Japanese Jazz

    I think those neck plates may have been bulk-produced with that serial number.
  8. I was quite taken by this BC Rich copy which appeared on the "Also viewed" list. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Custom-build-B-C-Rich-Ironbird-copy-4-string-fretless-bass-guitar/282870786790?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D43781%26meid%3Dd2f20eb782ee4c50b4e702e84f6a3815%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D112853900874%26itm%3D282870786790&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 (Apparently its maker has been certified.)
  9. That poor SG!

    Looks like someone was trying to turn an SG into a Strat! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1986-Gibson-SG-Special-400-Restoration-Repair-Project/152933008058?hash=item239b8482ba:g:P~8AAOSwA3dYmHlm
  10. London bass guitar show 2018

    I met Mo Foster in the 80s after a Jeff Beck gig (on the There & Back tour) and he also played on Michael Schenker's 1st album (same rhythm section as on the JB album, with Simon Philips).
  11. London bass guitar show 2018

    That was by Bananarama, right?
  12. London bass guitar show 2018

    Well, if it's like today, the trains will be awful, so I'll make the call on Saturday.
  13. London bass guitar show 2018

    I'm in Berkshire, 20 miles West of London and the snow is settling; I'm debating whether to do the 2-mile drive to work! Hopefully things will be clear on Saturday, so I'll be able to get the train in...
  14. Danger danger!

    "This item is in excellent condition" - except for the fact that the frets have been ripped off with a crowbar!
  15. Always Aberdeen, eh?

    It's not a Ric - it's a Chickenbacker, probably £250 new (give or take the paint job). (Oh, and I've played my Ric through your amp, and it sounded pretty good!)
