  1. The neck from my 1999? P - Special which does not seem to be holding the required relief after fitting new heavier strings? The Truss Rod screws in and out, but does not seem to be doing a great deal to the relief ☹️? The neck is in very good condition with level frets and no sharp edges. This is from the Standard Series - not the Affinity Range Nice Maple figured neck with some flaming and lovely grained Rosewood fingerboard with minor cracking by the first fret, which I am informed can be repaired quite easily? Lightweight at just 750 gms, so no neck dive 👍 Would make a nice Winter project. Has more of a Jazz profile and nut width, than Precision - 38mm according to my old eyes. Widest point at the butt end looks like 63mm. I can post to the UK Mainland for £10.00 Any questions, please give me a shout 👍
  2. The Body from my Squier P - Special Standard Series PJ Pickups. Nice and light, with very good tonal range. There are a few dings and marks, but is generally in good condition. The previous owner fitted a none original pick guard which is not fitted too well around the neck pocket. Selling separately from the neck, as I am unsure of the stability of the Truss Rod after fitting new strings - The truss rod screws in and out, but doesn’t seem to make a great deal of difference to the relief? So I’m listing it separately in case someone wants it who knows what they are doing. Neck pocket at the widest point looks like 64mm - to my old eyes. Any questions, please fire away.
  3. Withdrawn - Sorry Guys, its playing so well - I can't let it go 👍 Fender Squier P - Bass Special PJ Bass Guitar from 1999 with Gig Bag in good used condition with several marks and blemishes. This is from the Standard Series, not the Affinity range. This P Bass - Special answers the age old question of wether to purchase a Precision Bass, or a Jazz Bass having both P & J pickups. This pickup configuration provides a wide range of tonal options and sounds superb as the P pickup offers the Classic Precision ‘thump’ and the Jazz pickup adds clarity, definition and ‘growl’ when required to cut through the mix. The Bass has been nicely set up with a low action, a new set of light gauge strings have just been fitted & comes complete with a lightweight Gig Bag. The three controls are P pickup volume, J pickup volume and a Master tone control, which goes from an old school sound through to a more modern Hi - Fi tone. Another great advantage to the ‘PJ’ configuration is that although the body is a Classic Precision shape, the neck is based on the slimmer, more manageable Jazz Bass width neck, to give improved playability. Can post to the UK Mainland for £24.95

  6. Fender American Vintage ‘62 Re Issue (AVRI) Precision Bass built in the USA in 2003, all original & in excellent lightly used condition with just a few marks consistent with normal use, the ‘worst’ one I can find albeit with my old eyes is a small 4mm impact mark near the bridge (please see photograph) which is very shallow & can't be seen 'off stage' plus a tiny mark on the end of the headstock and so overall I would grade this as 9/10 in my humble opinion of course - especially for a Nitro finished 17 year old instrument. Weight is a tad over 8.5 lbs according to my digital scales. Nails the James Jamerson thing. The Bass is set up with a nice low action and so plays really well, with a lovely true Precison Bass sound and excellent tonal variation. Comes complete with the Original Hard Shell Case also built in the USA complete with all the Case Candy including the original Pickup and Bridge covers, which have never been fitted - so no holes in the body either side of the bridge - in fact, they are still sealed in the original bag from new. The case does have a few scuffs to the corners, but nothing major and comes complete with the two original keys - also still in a sealed bag. Here is some info off T'interweb This model has been discontinued. Today we are featuring a Fender American Vintage ’62 Precision Bass in a beautiful three tone sunburst. This reissue instrument pays homage to a ground breaking year for the Fender Precision Bass. All of the classic details are present including the rosewood fretboard, tortoise shell pickguard, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and chrome bridge and pickup covers. The covers are shipped unmounted but are included in the accessory kit. The “C” shape neck is super smooth to play and the classic single split-coil pickup provides that warm, full and fat tone that you have heard on so many of your favourite records!! Specifications: Alder body Tortoise pickguard Maple neck Rosewood fretboard 1.75″ nut width 34″ scale length “C” shape neck profile 20 vintage style frets Single Split-Coil pickup Master Volume, Master Tone controls Nickel and Chrome hardware American Vintage 4 Saddle bridge Vintage Style Reverse Tuning Machines Deluxe Light Brown hardshell case with strap, cable and bridge and pickup cover in the accessory kit. i would prefer Bank Transfer or Paypal F&F on collection, or prior to postage if someone has a reliable Courier they trust to send for it. I have a box and the case is built like a brick outhouse which would be well bubble wrapped also - UK Mailnland only. Any questions, please give me a shout 👍👍....

  18. Yes, I bought this from Bill almost a decade ago and firmly belongs right at the top of my ‘Basses I should have kept’ list 🙈🙈. i later did a trade with Ben for his early 6o’s EB2 Semi - which could very well be number two on the same list. by the way 😬😬!! I have to say that whoever is lucky enough to buy this will be a very happy Boy, or Girl as it is a fantastic Bass and it may be worth you adding an accurate weight to the listing Bill, as if memory serves - I’m very old - it was the lightest P Bass I ever owned, or even played during the past half Century & so it would be a firm favourite amongst us ‘weightwatchers’ 😂😂👍👍. In fact a figure of ‘just a Nats dangly’ under, or a tad over the 8lbs mark may seem incredible, but tends to ring a bell? GLWTS Bill, but some how, I don’t think you will need it 👍👍
  19. Exactly like my first ever Fender, bought s/h for £100 in the early 70's and it was Fab 👍👍 Someone will be very happy😀...
  20. Ah, a good point I'd not thought of - Thank you 👍
  21. Hi, Thank you for the additional info 👍 - I have managed to source a 60mm, 24v jobbie which I am hoping will sort it out and prevent me having to tax the few brain cells I have left in my dotage attempting to fit a voltage converter😂😂🙈🙈. Although your advice is very much appreciated and would be the sensible, long term solution by as you say opening up the choice of fans in the future👍👍 Thank you again & all the best, Tim
  22. oops, I think you are right - sorry. The hole centres were 50mm - yet another Senior moment 😂😂🙈🙈👍👍
  23. I looked at these, but unfortunately, they don't do a 50mm 24v ☹️☹️🙈🙈
