  1. Now that's the way to do it! Brilliant for sale ad @Ted Theodore Logan, III And a great cab too! GLWTS 😊
  2. ^^ This! Wishing you the best with it all Lozz.. Difficult a decision as it must have been, your health and wellbeing is the most important thing. Sounds like you've got some great memories to hold onto from your time in the band and a sense of real achievement too.. No doubt, in a few months time, you'll be onto your next musical adventure! 😊
  3. Thanks for sharing.. 😊 Really good stuff ; I like her voice and the songs are haunting and compelling.
  4. The answer to the OP's question is yes, millions and millions of people do. Record sales of The Beatles, Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Bowie, Paul Simon, Squeeze, Kate Bush, Grandmaster Flash, Cole Porter, The Beautiful South, Elvis Costelloe, Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, Amy Winehouse, Carole King, Randy Newman, Eminem, the great songwriters of musicals over the years such as Sondheim, Schuman & Schuman etc, etc.. Those brilliant storytelling songwriters - and so, so many others - is testimony to the fact that millions and millions of people listen to and care about the lyrics in songs. Protest songs, coming of age songs, redemption songs, love songs, comedic songs, songs of love and hate, allegorical songs, songs about drugs, songs about injustice, songs about togetherness, songs about the simple joy of being alive... Without the words, they would just be pieces of music - great music in many cases undoubtedly - but still, they'd just be music. But with the words, they become something else entirely. 'You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you will join us And the world will live as one.'
  5. Oops! Thanks for pointing that out.. 😊 I'll edit the post accordingly.
  6. The bass has now SOLD; thanks for all the interest.
  7. Had a couple of requests about the weight of the bass, so I've weighed it on our really old bathrooms scales. The reading says it's a shade under 4kg which doesn't surprise me given that it's an Ash body.
  8. Can't disagree with any of that @FDC484950 It's that dreaded GAS at work again though, otherwise....
  9. Hi Folks So, this really, really is a feeler, but as I said in another for sale thread, I have my eye on something else, so am putting this beautiful example of a Fender Roscoe Beck 5 String & OHSC for sale. I'm looking for £SOLD or very near offer for this beautiful Fender signature series bass, which many have described as the best Fender 5 string bass ever made. The bass is in superb condition and has one ding on the underside of the body which hopefully can be seen in the photos. A completely passive bass, it has two double wound Bill Lawrence pick-ups that offer you series/parallel/single configuration for each pick-up , offering you a plethora of sounds/tones from standard Jazz Bass to the most modern Humbucker sounds. It's perhaps a little bit darker tonally than a standard Jazz bass, but with stainless steel round wounds, this bass works with any genre of music and any type of band. Here's a great thread about the RBV bass on TalkBass: https://www.talkbass.com/threads/roscoe-beck-bass-v-5-string.38034/?amp=1012489606 And here are some YouTube links: The bass is currently strung and set up by mecto my taste, which means it has quite a high action and heavier gauge Carvin strings, so it would definitely benefit from a professional set up.. On that point and just to clarify, the truss rod is working perfectly so that won't be a problem. As ever, I'd prefer to sell this to someone who could come and try it out in person here in Littlehampton West Sussex first however, I am prepared to ship it at buyer's expense by insured courier service. If you've any questions, please PM me or ask away here and I'll try to get back to you ASAP. I am away in Birmingham from tomorrow afternoon for 3 days , so please bear in mind that I may not be able to answer certain questions until I get back. Advertised elsewhere btw, and I reserve the right to change my mind as I really do love the RBVs that I've had over the last 12 years... but that dreaded GAS does come along to fry the common sense circuitry in my brain from time to time.. Thanks for looking as ever 😊 Nik
  10. Thanks @karlfer Really appreciate the info! 😊
  11. Thanks.. Not really ; I'm almost embarrassed to say that I had to look him up just now to be absolutely sure who he is.. 😳
