  2. Hi, I have a fault on my newly purchased 1984 Aria SB1000, the seller has agreed to pay for any repair and ideally I am looking for someone in the Cambridgeshire area who can carry out a repair and a set-up on the bass. The PUP was replaced aboout 2 years ago and it seems to be working perfectly in active and passive. The issue is the 6 way selector, that when in active mode makes no change to the tone, and with each turn of the switch I get a loud crackling sound, it has been suggested it could be anything from dirty contacts to a capacitor leak, I have had a look and all seems visibly ok - but as a non techie would rather have a professional review and repair it. Anyone know of a good repair tech that could do the job for me? Cheers, Steve.

  9. Basschat used to be a great place to buy or sell gear 8-10 years ago and I made a lot of bass playing buddies through sales but as it grew in popularity, so did the amount of time wasters and jokers who think helpful comments about the gear your selling flourished. I used to buy and sell a lot on here about 7 years ago but just got fed up with meaningless messages and comments that potentially scupper your sale with personal unhelpful opinions. But having said that it's still a great place for more realistic prices as opposed to eBay.

  12. Fender P Bits 'n' Pieces - £125

    For sale my old "Japanese" clone Fender P in sunburst. I bought this as a back up to my old Fender P on Basschat about 8/10 years back. Possibly the lightest bass I have owned and would suit a youngster or anyone with back problems. The previous owner informed me that the original owner had tried to build a Fender P with some old Fender parts and some more dubious pieces including the neck that proclaims to be a Japanese build and indeed the serial number matches a mid nineties Japanese Fender P, but it most certainly is not - although he did a great job with the decal and the staining on the neck. She has some skuffs, scratches and marks and I have tried to photograph most of these. A lovely warm tone coupled with a decent growl if the mood takes. Not looking for a kings ransom, [s]£150[/s] [b]£125[/b] will make her yours, but I would prefer not to ship due to a lack of case so it will be pick up from me in sunny Ely, Cambridgeshire.
