  2. Gavin sold me a Alien Tidal Wave preamp/DI with power supply, quality Boss power supply not a cheapo, and quickly shipped and well packed super easy transaction, many thanks
  3. I used carbon fibre tube, 18mm od 16mm id to fit some into a neck I'm playing with, I still have enough tube left to make another 4 inserts if it's the right size for you
  4. Bought Ed's Steve Bailey fretless book and DVD, very quickly dispatched and well packaged, many thanks

  6. I remember Chris from when he cut his teeth on the Tube and the like, doesn't look like he's changed at all
  7. James/Jim bought my signature Kala SUB UBass, lovely easy transaction, great comms and very quick to let me know it had arrived safely and he was happy I look forward to seeing what comes out of his guitar workshop 😎
  8. The three I saw live late 70's/1980 Rush Thin Lizzy Queen (Liverpool Empire, the best gig I ever saw, at their real pomp with an audience who sang Walk Alone at the band with barely any prompting) and the ones I didn't see Bob Marley and the Wailers(turned down a ticket to Deeside, biggest regret of my musical life), Pink Floyd(brother sold his spare Wall tickets for big money, took a long time to forgive him for that), Weather Report (missed them at Glastonbury as stuck on Guernsey)
  9. Been asked about weight sorry I didn't have the details to hand yesterday when I listed but have got it out and tried weighing it this morning - I've tried different scales cheap luggage scale, bathroom scales and post scales (difficult to get a consistent reading on these) and get somewhere between 3895g and 4010g so I'd say 8.8lbs, none of the scales are calibrated/tested and the bathroom scales only read in 0.5Kg increments Nut width is 42mm Fretboard radius is 7.25"
  10. I've seen a fretless that I'd like to buy, and since the seller is also selling a fretted P I'll not bother him with trade request so will put this up for sale in the belief of if it is meant to be it will be Fender Precision Bass Made In Japan 1990/91 PB57/500 Two colour Sunburst / Maple. Lovely sounding and playing, player grade, Precision Bass, in good used condition. Purchased from Bass Direct, has great sounding original type '57 pickups with staggered pole pieces. Fujigen built with typical of era quality Japanese parts and build quality. Solid one piece maple neck, truss rod adjustment at heel of neck. Single ply white scratch plate with original pots and capacitor. Condition is Used, no major issues, minor dings and wear as one would expect from a 30 year old instrument; frets, hardware and truss rod in good condition and electrically sound. Since I've owned the bass I have changed the pickguard screws to stainless and fitted Flatwound strings and 4 replacement shorter length bridge height adjustment screws, but have kept the originals and will include those. Instrument is currently set up with a fairly straight neck and low action to suit me. Complete with used Fender ABS hard case in good condition. Includes UK 48 hour courier shipping mainland UK, excluding far SW England and Scottish Highlands and Islands for which there may be an additional cost. You are welcome to come and try the instrument out here in Llanfyllin Any questions please ask, either through pm or by telephone 01691 648011. I have some additional photos saved and can take more if required, though outdoor shots with good natural light maybe difficult given the weather. Thanks for looking
  11. Ebay used Fender Bass prices have dropped I think by 10-20% in the last month, MIM Jazz and Precisions go for 300-350, if they are auctions with a low starting price, and most listed with high start prices tend to be pulled before they sell as no longer available so I'd assume they are also for sale on FB or advertised elsewhere so face to face deals for less than advertised Ebay price get done; Telecasters always do seem to be overpriced though, both Squiers and Fender so much so that new Squier FSR Bullet Tele at sub £150 for a well made really playable guitar (albeit thinner body but very resonant) make a lot of sense for instant gratification and incremental upgrading
  12. I've been through this once a couple of years ago, I ended up requesting a phone call back from Ebay and explained the situation to them, they looked at the email communications and reinstated the feedback. This was with a big overseas seller and they'd appealed at local level (China) to have the feedback removed, but speaking to an operator actually in the US he agreed it shouldn't have been removed so it was reinstated, but a couple of weeks later I looked and it had been removed again, they were a bigger seller than I am a buyer so they won out - I'm not sure if you can actually talk to Ebay anymore they have made it almost impossible to get customer support you just go round in circles never getting anywhere.
  13. something from these guys would do the job https://www.textileenterprises.co.uk/product/ball-loops/ and [email protected] has one of the originals left and would ship to the uk
  14. Picture of the damage, the bass was well wrapped in bubble wrap and inside a strong cardboard box and no apparent damage to the box in transit but this cracking of the varnish was evident on first inspection; I thought that the damage, which is slight, just hadn't been declared, I didn't know it had happened in transit; the bass plays fine but John quickly offered to take it back so I returned it to him. I asked @Andyjr1515 opinion if it could have been caused by cold shock as I had tried to be very careful about bringing the package up to room temperature before opening it in the evening, it had been well below freezing here first thing in the morning so the package was very cold when delivered and had been in the workshop which is unheated all day
