  2. As new . Currently £57 new at Anderson’s. Although the spec is for RH450 head it will fit any comparable amp head and foot switch plus it makes a very versatile gig bag Collection from DY5 or can post at buyers cost Arrive at the venue without a scratch. RH450 is built for bass players on the move with sturdy casing and components. However, if your want its stylish design to stay unaffected by life on the road we recommend the RH450 gig bag that also protects your RC4 foot switch.
  3. Wonderful Overwater handmade Jazz Bass. It is the signature Scott Devine model. I guess you know Scott's education work but if not there are loads of his videos on Youtube. Recently purchased from Jon, Wilco 10, on this website but, as you can probably tell by my sign in I’m a massive fan of Flea of RHCP and have been lucky to acquire a Flea Modulous Bass so unfortunately the wife’s rules of only one bass at a time apply hence a very very reluctant sale of this wonderful bass. I have used the bulk of Johns original pictures and text in the following ad So the bass is pretty unique. Scott wanted a Jazz that he could play really fast when required. That mean't a 33" scale and a 16.5mm string spacing. Scott has fairly large hands, I have pretty short fingers and have used full scale 34" basses and shorter 30" and 32" scales. The full scale ones are fine, but sometimes a stretch, the short scale ones are easier to play but don't feel quit right to me. This 33" combined with the narrower string spacing is perfect. Indeed it is the string spacing more than the scale that makes all the difference. In case don't know Overwater they were established in 1979 in Denmark Street by Chris May who is still at the helm. They became the go to builder for the theatre players in the west end due to the great electronics and wonderful build quality. Since then they have grown to supply all genres of players. More can be found at the website http://overwaterbasses.com. The guitar is an absolute pleasure to play, currently set up fairly low. The electronics are the classic twin jazz pickups with a phantom 2nd winding to cancel noise. With a John East designed flat response buffer pre-amp to purely replace any signal lost via the guitar lead to the amp input. Swamp Ash body, Marple neck. Single bridge pieces and Hipshot ultra light turners. It is also lovely looking with a satin natural finish with black hardware. This guitar is from 2015 and is in new condition. Used for home practice only never gigged. I can't see a single blemish apart from the usual swirls on the scratchplate. The case is superb quality and has a single small ding in it. It comes complete with an Overwater hard case, an almost new set of flatwound Chromes plus a set of roundwounds in the case. All original paperwork including certificate, and set up Allen keys. Chris and his team still hand build this Jazz and the current prices are - Jazz Bass £2,400 Overwater case £120 Strings £55 Total £2,575 Delivery. This is obviously a top end guitar and I would rather not rely on post. You are welcome to collect from DY5 West Midlands or at a push I could post if you wish to send your own courier in for collection Thanks for looking, full specs below. Specs Neck: 1 Piece Maple Scale length: 33” Body: Medium weight Swamp Ash Finish: Natural Satin Head Veneer/Finish: Natural Satin Fretboard: Maple Frets: 20 - Medium Position Markers: 6mm dots + 2mm side dots Machines: Hipshot Ultralite - Black Bridge: OW Single bridge pieces - Black String spacing: 16.5mm Pick-ups: OW ‘Noiseless’ J4 Controls/EQ: Overwater/John East Buffer pre-amp + passive EQ Scratchplate: Black Serial No: 15-3838 Weight: 9.5lbs/4.3Kgs Year: 2015 Sorry but no trades, sale only Contact Bob 07486880060 or [email protected] Final Price Drop to £1000 for quick sale Please note bass is now listed on EBay

  5. Thanks buddy, I managed to convince wife that if I purchased the sd from Jon then I would get a quick sale on this one so hopefully it will happen or if not I may be in a spot of bother. Jon was fantastic with sale and even delivered it for me.
  6. Hi All . Please note this is now listed on eBay, taking advantage of their sell for £1 offer so it may be sold at any time Final Price Drop to £900 Circa 2004, sale due to the purchase, from Wilco 10 many thanks Jon, on this forum of an Overwater Scott Devine j series of which the 33 inch scale tends to suit my playing style plus my dear wife’s rules of one in one out I dont have a set of scales to give an accurate weight but it’s a tad lighter than my new Scott Devine j bass As is normal with these early overwater j series basses there is no serial number located on the bass. I contacted Chris May at Overwater and he has been very very helpful and has provided a detailed letter of providence, specification and history of the bass of which I have a hard certificate copy and also a pdf file. As I am unable to work out how to upload a pdf file to this listing, I will gladly forward you a copy via email if you wish to read it and also a hard copy will be supplied with the bass. Please note that I purchased bass directly from a professional bass player and Overwater endorsee who purchased it from new. It had-only ever been used for studio sessions, recording with some very famous artists including Brian Adams, Amy Winehouse and American X factor and again to confirm is in mint condition and very well looked after. Again this is confirmed on the letter of providence supplied by Chris May. Chris May at Overwater has also stated that you are more than welcome to contact him directly if you have any questions relating to the bass Active Electronics. Mint Condition. No fret ware nice lowish action Never gigged. Superb example of a hand built British bass guitar in Cumbria It has a great passive J Bass sound, with the usual Jazz Bass controls and the powerful active sound is cut and boosted by a concentric pot Bass/Treble control. Recently serviced, oiled and fitted with Dunlop strings. Hipshot hardware, Kent Armstrong pickups and John East pre amp Comes with quality padded gig Sorry no offers at this bargain price. New price with the added extras is approx £2800.00 plus I need to recuperate as much as I can to offset purchase of Scott Devine j series Prefer Collection only from DY5 West Midlands though I may be able to sort out a suitable box if you wish to arrange a courier Bob on 07486880060
  7. Cheers both I have managed to blag a bit more room from the wife so going with the bg 250
  8. Hi all im looking for a new home practice amp and have noticed the tcbg250 112 at a great price of £226 but as space is a bit of an issue the mark bass cmd 101 looks like it’s in the frame as well but at £399. Any thoughts, I’m playing an Overwater active jazz whilst the Tc amps give your more options ie tone print the mark bass kit , looking at the reviews, gives a better quality sound Any advice will be much apreciated Cheers Bob
