    If you could only choose one overdrive pedal?

    My current fave is Broughton's Terraformer. Breaks up nicely, from light OD to pretty gainy stuff, no low-end loss, and so many tones hence its 3EQ, blend and gain combinations. The tricky part is setting the blend on the fly as it has a major effect on output level. But it doesn't sound 'layered' at all. Nice form-factor too. Second one would be Grizzly bass, Swell B-Peg too, which is less flexible, bigger and has specific power needs, but sounds damn right !

    SOLD P/J Navigator - 1980s

    950 euros, shipped to your door in Europe. I'm not in the best position to say it really is a bargain, but seems like it's already done :-) It's a great P, and a great P/J too.

    SOLD P/J Navigator - 1980s

    No worry, i didn't understand your post like this. Sorry if my quite-basic English sounds like i'd have misread it ! Btw, it was an interesting point. There were Navigator P/Js like mine in 1983. I first thought it was a custom order.

    SOLD P/J Navigator - 1980s

    Thanks, it's working well indeed. I dig its P thump, but the J is pretty useful for a tighter growl. As for Navigator PJs, you can download there some ESP catalogs: http://www.guitarscollector.com/esp-catalogs.html If you pick the 1983 ESP Export one, you'll find on page 9 a LPB PJ-120 which looks pretty similar to my bass.
  9. I'm selling my 80s Navigator P/J, overall good condition hence its 30 years. Genuine LPB colour has nicely faded in OTM. Parchment pickguard - not that white in the flesh. As for specs: Gotoh GB-2 tuners P/J pickups set Veneer rosewood fingerboard One-piece (it seems) Sen body Medium-jumbo frets 8.8 lbs / 4 kg Everything is genuine and in good working condition. Trussrod's a bit stiff but is working well, with neck straight & low action. Currently strung with 45-105 fresh Rotosounds. A real joy to play with a C shaped neck, slightly narrower than old Precisions (42mm/1,65 inches width). Sounds just like a serious P should, with the added flexibility of the J. Many tones in this one. Comes with it's genuine leather-like gigbag.1050 euros / £930 shipped to your door in European countries. Price dropped : £740 / 850 euros now, shipped to your door.

    SOLD 1978 MM Stingray, nice condition

    Chouette hein :-) Thanks for your comments, it's a nicely yellowed beaut, and a cracking bass too.
  13. I'm selling my all original late (december) 1978 Stingray. The bass is in great condition for a 40-year old instrument. Some chips on the coat of the ash body here and there, and that's all. Neck's straight, trussrod's stiff, but has a lot of life left assuming my luthier - just have a look to the bullet position. Low action without fretbuzz (2mm on 12th fret). Comfy C shaped neck, thin frets OK. Not-so-common weight for an old Stingray: 8.8lbs/4kg Great sounding bass, with dead silent electronics - preamp is the epoxy version - which provides this unique Stingray growl, but warmer tones too. Definitely more flexible than later Stingrays. £1920 / 2200 euros, comes with (non-original) case. I live near Paris and am happy to ship the bass in a strong parcel - shipping fees at buyer's expense.
