  5. And here I am thinking "Calling his product hideous will not help with the sale".

  8. I bought a pickup from Keith. Everything went smooth; communication, shipping, packaging. Highly recommended! Cheers from Germany!

  10. No seller is off the hook if they packed the item poorly! The courier is there to collect, not to oversee packaging and confirm everything is secure unless hired for such a service. If I, as seller, am a silly billy and throw the bass in a $5 carry case how is the courier or the buyer responsible when the bass gets damaged on its way to the buyer? No offense but I find this simply excuses for insecure sellers to sleep better at nights. You either offer both collection and shipping or just collection. Dan it is no demand. If not clearly stated in the for sale ad "collection only" i will kindly ask the seller if posting would be an option, again "ask" not "demand". If the seller offers shipping I will then politely ask how will he ship? In a Tesco bag, original carton, HSC? I will always pay for the shipping costs, as is my obligation as a buyer. I am still trying to understand if there is a UK law relieving the seller from all liability when he ships an item only when the buyer "arranges own courier"?
  11. I participate in many forums globaly and I have to say this is a british phenomenon. Almost every other ad says "buyer arranges own courier". This has to be the most bothersome thing to do in a sale. And as much I have read the answers of those that practise this, I still can't get it. "Collection only" is understandable, hustle free sale. But "buyer arranges own courrier"...
  12. Yes, just the hex slot is rounded, not the threads. Many "ifs".... Thank you for the input.
  13. @Manton Customs How would I go about pulling the truss rod? I know for sure that the nut is welded onto the rod and it is encased Inside a cylinder if that helps.
  14. So this bass came up for sale near me. It's an Indo, the seller has made clear that the nut is stripped from a professional.... He's asking 150€ (a lot) but I'm going to offer 70€. A luthier localy is asking for at least 350€ without having even seen the bass, so I figured I'd shave the damaged alloy with a dremel and free the cavity then get a replacement screw with an allen head, use loctite or the likes and glue it in place tight. Now this is a dual action rod, which as I've found out, is welded to the nut. I have seen loctite holding many kilos of torque on cars, but I'm not sure wether something like this is possible. I've gotten mixed opinions on FB from luthiers, but thought I might ask the commnunity as well.
  15. Thank you. I was actually going to try and source a decent kit from the UK, because the pricing in Germany is ridiculous! I haven't built anything in a long time, but I have a very good understanding of circuit schematics although my builds where hi-fi amplifiers, pedals, power supplies and in general devices operating with low voltages and currents. My concerns where about how carefully these amps where designed and if people have actually built and operated them sucessfully. I will be having a lot of time off in the coming year and I wanted to put my time into builds that don't take up much space, are rewarding and when finished have a function other than hanging from a wall.
