  1. Hi Eddie, As in “first bought New “ by Basschatter Oliver Morgan , as per his enclosed Thomann receipt dated 5/7/17. Reflecting the care you took with it, thanks. G&L USA Cert manufacture date 19 Jan 2016. Cheers and Come on England !! in Sunday’s Euros Final. 🍻🤓🤘 Quent
  2. I had my G&L USA MJ-5 delivered today ( 2 July 2021 ) from Eddie ( Pinball ). Really easy purchase thanks to Eddie’s quick and helpful replies. A very fair price for a bass in perfect condition , 4 years since it was first bought. Very well packed and promptly dispatched. You can deal with Pinball Eddie with every confidence. PS Empress light weight body, 7lbs 13oz ! Rosewood FB. Midnight Blue Metallic with matching headstock. Oh boy !! Quent
  3. I’ve decided to change this 5 pot preamp , good as it is and working perfectly without any background noise or hum. No passive/active switch just the Pre engaged only. NOTE that the B M Treb are FIXED at 1.25 inch centres / 31.75mm. Works with both active and passive pickups, see EMG link below. Usually comes with 2 tall knobs and 3 shorter ( BMTreb) from EMG. As this was already standard in my Schecter ( with other knobs ) I do happen to have some EMG knobs from other basses but it’s a 3 tall, 2 short set so you can improvise. eg 2 Short for Vol and Blend or one tall for the Mids. What ever. Vol Blend Treb Mids Bass I’ll change it for something else giving a wider range of frequency changes for the bass mids and treble. It came as standard in my 2012 Schecter Damien Elite 5 along with two passive EMG MM5HZ humbuckers ( not for sale ).The photos include a shot of the installation in my Schecter. Removed by Steve at the excellent Guitarlodge.co.uk , Felixstowe. The battery leads have been snipped as you’ll see in the photos. I’ve kept my nice metal Schecter knobs but can include the 3 tall EMG knobs and Two short ones, black plastic with brass insert shown, allen key too. The pots turn really smoothly with a nice resistance and going to the centre detent is strangely orgasmic. Best not to go there mid song ! £60 includes UK postage. Run on 9v in my bass but apparently can be 18v and EMG recommend that if you play particularly hard for some reason. Links below for EMG description then second link for more detail, frequency graphs and installation guide ( no good asking me ! ). Hope you’re all keeping well. Cheers.

  4. Thanks for the quick payment and very well packed pickup Nigel. Great job and good price for the Seymour Duncan SJ5-3 neck pup. Very easy and fast comms so deal with Berserker with confidence, despite his scary name ! Cheers. Quent
  5. Awesome bass and beautiful finish with the binding and contoured flame maple top. Brilliant value , I have one too and the GTB ( White with black binding ). Yes, M2000 very versatile ( and I like my L2000 too! ) GLWTS.
  6. Just sold EMG preamp to Gary. So easy to deal with when selling or buying with quick payment and great fast easy going comms. Top guy ! 👍
  7. These are currently £30 new on the EMG website. Less than 4 years old this came from a custom wired EMG preamp in my bass so I know it is in perfect working order but the whole 5 pot system didn’t suit my taste so I’ve had it all replaced. I’ve included a photo of the pot within the 5 pot system so you can see it’s position between Vol Pot and the EQ board, but I have now sold the other 4 pots. Please NOTE : This pot is specifically for use with EMG Active X Series pickups. It’s a B106rD tone pot , 25k. I’ll add the EMG website link to it below. B106rD VLPF pot, Variable Low Pass Filter. https://www.emgpickups.com/active-tone-vlpf.html https://www.emgpickups.com/pub/media/Mageants/V/L/VLPF_0230-0168B.pdf Comes with usual brass inserted EMG knob and one push fit / solderless connecting dual wire , shown in photo , ready to compliment an existing system. £15 includes delivery. Cheers. Quent
  8. An easy, quick and enjoyable exchange of experiences and gear photos with Anth whilst buying his BigMuff Nano pedal. Great packing and a generous 1st Class delivery. Even though he’s a Drummer at heart I do think you can trust this man ! 😃 Obviously his Bass experience has rounded his character ! ( As in knocking off the very rough edges! I could go on..........) I can thoroughly recommend Ghost Rider Anth to deal with. Thanks again !
  9. Ha! Not as bad as my spelling thow. 5 attempts to pass Eng Lang O Level from 1969 to 71 but as I say , they were notoriously difficult papers those years. Got a pass in the end, to get rid of me I think. GLWTS
  10. These 5 pots have just come out of my Jackson Kelly Marie which has EMG 40DCX ACTIVE pickups. All upgraded before I bought it recently. Bass is 4 years old so this lot are less than that. The connections are all push fit Solderless. Can be a 4 pot (£35) Vol Vol Bass Treble if you do not use the Active Tone control which is for EMG X series pickups only. ( £35 without the Tone Pot) ( £15 for the Active Tone control on it’s own inc Del ). I’ve labelled the EMG pots in my photos but it’s for active pickups and VOL VOL ( B122rH right hand ) an EMG BTS Control of two pots BASS B100 has the board with two selector switches for altering the higher frequencies of the TREBLE pot B170 . There’s a final Active Tone Control B106 25K VLPF which is specifically ( according to the EMG parts site ) for EMGs X Series active pickups. Whoever chose this set up could have put a 5 pot BQS system in ( which I’ve just had Pro fitted ) but they chose bass treble tone for some reason. It didn’t do it for me, hence the change but it does work perfectly. 5 EMG knobs with brass inserts included , 6mm. I might have to sell the Active Tone pot B106rD VLPF ( Variable Low Pass Filter) separately but the £45 includes delivery in the UK and the 5 tall knobs. EMG info states The VLPF simply attenuates high frequencies to suit your required tone . I know the whole system works having played it. Couple of photos of it in the cavity before extraction for what it’s worth. On EMG site the BTS 2 pot is around £70 and the Active Tone VLPF B106 is £30 ( corrected ) and you’re getting yer Vols and the knobs are a rip off if you try to get them. Allen key provided. So the £60 inc delivery UK is very good value. EMG links below.

  11. Great bass and value for this “As New “ inc postage. Well worth it. I got mine exactly the same from Andos except mine is a jet black Ebony fingerboard. Version 2 like this with the upgraded pickups I see ( easier to control than than version 1 pickups but they’re fun too - still got my Sire V7 Jazza ) rolled and bound edges look and feel good too. Pre amp gives you a massive range of tones and the Tone control works in Active mode too. Passive mode gives tons of scope too. PJs are so versatile. You can even wear them in bed......or down the pub. Good Luck Selling it !
