  1. Southpaw Spotted

    I saw this one. Looks like a decent fixer upper. If only I hadn’t just bought a brand new Stingray......
  2. Eden WTB400

    Whereabouts are you, Mike?
  3. Shuker 5 Sold

    That is a thing of beauty. GLWS.
  4. Our singer uses one. Looks odd. But no 'odder' than my lefty bass. No one cares once the party gets going. After my bum notes last night, I could probably do with getting a stand too....... ;-)
  5. Sandberg TM4 or Stingray

    Thread resurrection. I finally took the plunge and bought the Stingray last week. Loving it so far. :-)
  6. Bass Direct

    I've bought a few Hipshot products via BD over the last year. Mostly straightforward with only one 'hiccup'. I would use them again but I think they can probably improve their order tracking and communication with customers.
  7. NA&CD!!! Ampeg PF-350 & Barefaced One 10

    Interesting. I too play in a rock covers band and use a pair of Two10s with a TC BH500. I am looking to downsize the amp and this wee Ampeg is on my list along with the TH350 and the Tech21 VT Bass (which I had originally bought but was dead on arrival). To be honest, the two cabs are overkill much of the time but they do look the business and are still fairly easy to transport.

    [quote name='sblueplanet' timestamp='1507824628' post='3388244'] Did you have the scratchplate made? [/quote] Yes - Jacks Instrument Services in Manchester. Really good fit and nice quality. Not cheap but I couldn’t find an off the shelf plate that worked. Plus I reckoned a quality scratch plate would make the whole guitar look just that bit more pukka.

    Here is my project Squier P Bass that I bought for £120. I've added a Hipshot tuners and a Hipshot extender, a hipshot Kickass bridge and a custom black scratchplate. The bass plays really nicely and I plan to rewire it and maybe change the pickups at a later date. [url=https://flic.kr/p/ZhUuPy][/url]
  10. Hipshot Kickass Bridge.

    I took the plunge and put one on my Squier P bass. It has slightly improved sustain and the tone of the E string but the biggest improvement for me is that it is more comfortable for my picking hand when playing with a pick. Plus, I like that I can fine tune the string spacing. Definitely worth £60 on a budget bass in my book.
  11. Hipshot Kickass Bridge.

    I've been considering one of these for my project Squier P bass. I love Hipshot products - quality, well engineered. Nice to see a Kickass on an actual bass - it does look quite 'big' on that Aria. Is the body smaller than a Fender?
  12. Washburn Status S1000 renovation

    I have one of these (a left handed one). It has a through neck and a fingerboard which is synthetic (Phenolic). I had a close look at mine and all the frets are the same - I suspect that your example has been molested, maybe because of the fret buzz? My bass suffered some damage whilst in storage for many years but is quite playable now after a very mild tweek on the truss rod. I use heavier strings on it (I think 105s). I note you are in Scotland - I am too - I would be happy to meet up and compare if you need to? PM me.
  13. Musicman Sterling - Sold

    More pics and location?
  14. Just bought a Musicman 'Old Smoothie'

    [quote name='Adethefade' timestamp='1503346673' post='3357524'] I just took delivery of a butterscotch Stingray 'Old Smoothie'. I'm well aware of the quality, playability and awesome sound that Stingrays give - I have four others - but this baby is astounding. It plays like I've owned it for years, the sound is eye-wateringly good and the build quality is all you'd expect from a MM. The preamp doesn't have the aggression available on a 3EQ but for all straight ahead bass sounds it's stunning. I just had to tell some people because the wife has now glazed over. [attachment=251808:SR TE.jpg] [/quote] This is not helping my Stingray GAS....... Looks lovely. :-)
  15. Sandberg TM4 or Stingray

    It's not quite that simple - I'm left handed so finding a USA Sub is nigh on impossible.
