  1. I used CMP Studios in Eastbourne few years ago. They were very good I thought.
  2. I've got one of these too, works for me.
  3. Not seen this before, couldn't find it here. Jaco with a JayDee...
  4. I've long looked at Sandbergs and thought I should try one and see for myself if all the love for them is justified....and I concur. Just given a new home to a 20th Anniversary Edition Ken Taylor Basic 4 and it's fab. Lovely neck, great slabs of tone from the pick ups with very usable EQ. It will be my only bass for the foreseeable future, I couldn't be happier and I'm pleased to be in the 'berg Club.😎 Here's a pic.
  5. Finally got it off! Sticky Stuff Remover did the job but it took 4 applications and a reasonable amount of elbow grease. There's one small patch that stubbornly refuses to shift which I'm going to leave and it'll become part of the bass's story along with a few other dints and dongs...genuine wear and tear. So I'm happy 😁. Thanks to everyone for the help, advise and humour.
  6. Sooo, Isoprop arrived this morning and...well.... it nearly worked. See pics, before and after. I'm left with some really stubborn marks that won't shift πŸ˜‘ Have to re-think this.
  7. Thanks for all your help and advice guys. I've ordered some Isoprop which will arrive on Monday, so I'll post an before and after pic😊😁
  8. It's in a fairly inconspicuous place already but I want to avoid any chance of making it worse. 😊
  9. Thanks Guys, I'll try some white spirit first and report back...
  10. Hi all I recently acquired a rather lovely Sandberg Ken Taylor 4 which is fab....however the previous owner stuck one of the pick holders on the back.of the bass on the belly cut. I took it off because I didn't want it there but of course it's left behind a sticky mess...see pic. I'd like to get it off but I'm pretty sure that cleaners like white spirit, nail polish remover/acetone snd the like would damage the finish. So can anyone suggest another way to remove the residue without affecting the finish? All advice gratefully recieved. Cheers 😊
  11. Just shared these on the Wal FB page but I thought I'd put them here too. Geddy's bass book just landed and here are the pages with his Wals. The book is great by the way.
  12. My copy arrived this morning...weighs about the same as his 72 Jazz... Only dipped in so far but it's nicely bound and well put together...gonna love going through it😊
  13. Me too. The more I play mine the more I love it. Totally GAS free for more than a year now. 😊
