    Open G string buzz

    Just changed my strings and have a terrible open G string buzz. Seems to be coming from the body, soundpost looks in place. The strings are lighter than the previous set and when I lay it on it’s back no buzz. Any ideas!
  4. Anyone got a set of 1/2 or 1/4 size Double bass strings?

    Hey Shamrock not got round to fitting them yet, I’ll let you know.
  6. Anyone know where I can get a battery plate screw for an 86 Stingray?

    Picked up a set of new Helicore Hybrid Lights really, really cheap. Certainly cheap enough to take a punt. I haven’t really read anything much about them so keeping an open mind!

    Hi. Folks just an update on this, I used UPS and had the bass insured for £5500 by a 3rd party,. Thanks for all the advice and special thanks to Grangur for the kind offer!

    I have a Michael Poller bass which I believe is Romanian which currently has innovation Honeys, I have Spiros on a old Boosey and Hawkes and its just night and day.... Lots of volume and projection.

    Very kind John, I'm just a bit reticent to mess about with it. Where are you mate? here is a pic of the bass.

    £2000 is as high as they insure.

    I’ll phone him Monday. I might be able to have the electrics removed as the bass is otherwise excellent. Apparently a straightforward job but I’m not keen on doing it but I use a local luthier who is great and I’d probably get him to take them out for me. The cost of sending the electrics is pretty reasonable and 2 grand insurance will cover them going missing.
