  1. Hi Peter, I appreciate your offer but I'm sure you'll understand that I really can't remove the instrument from sale to wait for 2 months for a possible sale. I'm happy with an offer close to the asking price if you or your girlfriend are able to make an offer now. To all intents and purposes it's all but brand new. Thanks again, Paul.
  2. I saw Lizzy play a few times in Quaintways in Chester circa '73 and he was playing a see-through acrylic bass, I can't remember what they were called. During 'Whiskey in the jar' he played rythym on a white Telecaster if I remember correctly.
  3. It's now listed in the Lefty for sale section.
  4. **SOLD** Ibanez SR600L, 2 Bartolini pickups, 3-band EQ, Lefty in Natural Flat Finish. This bass has hardly been used and is consequently in truly lovely condition and from a smoke and pet-free home. I’m now asking £295 was £340 . Cash on collection please either from my house (Chester-Wrexham area) where you can have a socially distanced inspection and play, or I’ll meet you en-route somewhere within a reasonable distance. Or pay by Paypal with insured courier/postage @ £16 -ish. Any further info 07777 640335 I’m a beginner. I bought this bass new about 5 years ago when they were retailing for about £550. I bought it with a view to learning to play when I retired. I did retire but I never actually got around to learning to play. Then lockdown arrived, the bass emerged from the cupboard and I tried again only to learn that my fingers are no longer supple enough, and never really were long enough for a full-scale bass. So, I’m selling it and buying a short scale instead. · Neck type · SR4 5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck · Top/back/body · Ash body · Fretboard · Jatoba/Abalone oval inlay · Fret · Medium frets · Bridge · Accu-cast B300 bridge (19mm string spacing) · Neck pickup · Bartolini® MK-1 neck pickup · Bridge pickup · Bartolini® MK-1 bridge pickup · Equaliser · Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/Mid frequency switch
  5. I've just been doing a bit of homework to find out the best and safest way to sell my bass on Basschat . I came across the following advice to update this thread. Be careful using Friends and family ... https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2020/03/paypal-scam-victims-warn-against-fraudsters-who-ask-for--family-/ Also DON'T use a credit card on Paypay as you loose your Section 75 rights... https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/credit-cards/PayPal-Section75/ As this thread is 5 years old and last updated 2 years ago what is the current favoured way to sell safely? Cheers Paul.
  6. I've just pulled the trigger on the Sire U5 short scale and left a deposit with Andertons for delivery in early September. All I have to do now is sell my SR600L, It's not imperative that I sell it to fund the Sire as I've got the cash but the truth is I won't be playing it and Mrs Deeper will pull a face at having another ornament in her dining room. So... how much is a Lefty one of these https://www.ibanez.com/eu/products/detail/sr600_07.html worth in as-new condition? Should I list it here? or on ebay? Is anyone here interested? I haven't taken any photos yet but can supply lots of detailed ones if required. I'm based in Chester -Wrexham area.
  7. Thanks, it sounds like the Sire U5 has a thumbs up. I've looked at Ibanez but the only SS they do as a lefty is the Mikro which is a 28" scale. I don't like the look of the Chowny - shallow I know, but important.
  8. I've been a longtime bass fan and bought myself a lovely lefty Ibanez SR600Lin natural flat just before I took early retirement with a view to learning to play. Since retiring I've spent all my time on family stuff, DIY, motorbikes and push bikes. I'm a bass owner rather than a bass player. ☹️ During lockdown I had a bit more time to devote to learning to play but if I'm honest, I'm struggling with stretching my 62 year old fingers around a full size bass. I'm aiming to play purely for my own enjoyment, I'll never grace a stage so I've been looking at short scale basses which may be easier for me to play. There aren't may lefty short scale around but Sire have this... https://www.andertons.co.uk/sire-version-2-left-handed-marcus-miller-u5-short-scale-alder-4-tobacco-sunburst available later this year. My questions are, I'm afraid, many and probably facile. Is my chosen new instrument suitable for the like of me and any good? How much is my pristine as-new pretty much unused Ibanez SR600L worth if I sell it to fund the new bass? ( is anyone interested?) Can I transfer the set of barely used Rotosound 46-105 flat wound strings I bought from the Ibanez to the Sire? Cheers Paul.
  9. Well that's a few to be going on with, thanks! All the ones you've mentioned are the right genre for me.
  10. I've always had an ear for a good bass line in that it's what has drawn me to most songs in the first place. However, as a late starter to learning to play bass (I'm 60) I'm finding that the stuff that I like, by its very nature is proving more than a bit tricky to attempt. My question therefore is what in your considered opinions are relatively easy songs to have a crack at for a beginner. So far, to give you an idea I've attempted with varying degrees of success and with ambition outstripping ability; Talk Talk's 'It's My Life' . Steely Dan's 'Rikki'. 'Hey Joe' etc... Wanted. Good songs. Simple bass lines. Thanks.
  11. That looks like a good idea and worth a try for a pound. Could I leave the adapter plugged in then just plug the usual jack/lead as required or would the adapter being plugged in permanently kill the battery too? I'm a beginner here.. T-Bay, I've tried a right angled plug and though it's easy to remove the lead it looks a bit clumsy and pokes out more or less at right angles to the front of the body. A mate has just given me a cheapo 'Nikkai' (from Maplins?) lead to try. The jack plug moulding is about 10mm longer than mine so may be easier to get a grip on.
  12. I've got an Ibanez SR600L in a natural flat finish which looks very susceptible to damage. My problem is that the sculpted cut out for the jack socket is at such an angle that once the plug is in its a nightmare to get a grip on the plug to get it out again. I'm concerned that the finish around the socket is getting marked and damaged. The easiest way is to pull it out by the lead but that makes me cringe. I can't leave it plugged in because I believe that as it's an active bass that will kill the battery? Am I alone with this problem or is it possible to get a different style or longer plug that I can actually get a grip on to remove it? Thanks.
  13. Wow, relentless it is... I've got it boxed off at about 2 thirds speed but Sparko-speed is beyond my 60 year old beginner's fingers for now. Proud to say that I saw them play it live from the front of the stage at the Reading festival in 1975. Happy days...
