  1. I ordered the first shuker orange bass like this year's ago, and called it the Jaffa jazz, sold it, but whoever has it will know if it was this first one as if they take the neck off, it has funk written on it by Mr Shuker on my request haha. It had Delano's and was based on my Sandberg. Anyway, great price for a bass like this, just compare it to the price of a mex fender!
  2. I pretty much never change strings on my basses if I can help it! Guitar on the other hand, I'd change as often as possible.
  3. It came from a Halloween party costume, which a few years later, was worn at this Halloween gig....
  4. I'll have to use my imagination, will see if I can shift anything to get this.
  5. Howdy, used to be a member here for years, but signed up again - think its the same username?! Anyway, bet there are a few of my old basses around here from ACG to Shuker! Who has my old Shuker Jaffa Jazz bass?! Haha.
  6. I've not really posted much here for years, but anyway, thought this might be of interest to some, just back from holiday in the US and while there I went for a tour of the Fender Factory in Corona. Some pictures (from my phone sorry, didn't take a proper camera) below, as its kinda interesting. Strangely, you cannot buy anything from them unless you have an American address, they do this build series thing where you can basically get an instrument built, but only if you are in America - they only just stopped this being available to anyone who lived anywhere, and had cheap shipping even, but alas its no more - saw a couple of the instruments from that on the line though (picture below). The photo order is backwards, sorry, took ages to paste the links! Not sure how to use the media on this site anymore!!

  7. Sorry, unsure where to put this. But a number of years back, probably in 2009 or so, I sold a PRS Custom 24 20th Anniversary Guitar on here. I got this guitar from a mate, and now that mate wants to see if I can find it so he can buy it back (along with another guitar of mine I sold which he loved and passed up the opportunity to buy! But that was on harmony central). Anyway, I remember selling this to the guitarist of a bassist on here, his wife collected it from Peterborough. I managed to find some pictures! I have more if it would help anyone.

  8. Bassist available in the Leeds area, I am just outside in Pool in Wharfedale. Played for years, but went travelling and quit my band so haven't been in a band for almost 2 years now I think it is. I've played most types of music (and even recording/gigged on guitar/drums too), but I'm not really interested in generic indie. Hip-hop, funk, or even rock/metal/hardcore would be preferred. Got an amp again now, so ready to gig. Will consider covers bands.
  9. I've had this since new, I custom ordered it, custom orange colour and all, barely been played, never gigged, but I did record once with it, you can hear that here: - [url="http://soundcloud.com/fosker/01-furious-nations-first-mix"]http://soundcloud.co...tions-first-mix[/url] Since quitting my last band and moving to Canada I've not played much even though I'm now back in England (didn't take this bass or others with me - bought a squier out there), would rather the cash for other things. 4 string J bass 34" scale 22 fret Maple neck Maple f/board Orange headstock face (to match body) Two way truss rod Carbon fibre reinforcement Black 2mm side dots Black block markers Satin lacquer finish Brass nut Medium fretwire Gotoh elephant ear tuners Black shuker logo Swamp ash body Polyester basecoat Bright orange colour coat, gloss topcoat Black s/plate Black control plate Black hardware Black gotoh 203 bridge Delano JMVC 4 FE/M2 pickups Passive electronics Vol, pan, tone Shuker Hiscox hardcase Prefer collection from Harrogate - £929 [attachment=108312:image002.jpg] [attachment=108313:image003.jpg] [attachment=108314:image004.jpg] [attachment=108315:image005.jpg] [attachment=108316:image006.jpg]
  10. I got this less than a year ago when I was living in Toronto, and it's came all the way back to England with me. It's in great shape, never gigged, barely played to be honest. Awesome grain! Collection from Harrogate as I have no box and it doesn't have a hardcase. £175 ono [attachment=108306:image001.jpg] [attachment=108307:image007.jpg] [attachment=108308:image008.jpg] [attachment=108309:image009.jpg] [attachment=108310:image010.jpg] [attachment=108311:image011.jpg]
  11. Lots of experience and equipment. Prefer something funky or hip hop, but open to something poppy or post rock even, just interesting really!
  12. This is in England at my folks place in Peterborough (I'm in North America right now), its as new, never gigged, used for a couple of band practices and one recording session. Selling only as I have no band (as I'm abroad) and I want cash for when I get home in a few months. It was used for this track - [url="http://soundcloud.com/fosker/01-furious-nations-first-mix"]http://soundcloud.co...tions-first-mix[/url] Full Spec: - 4 string J bass 34" scale 22 fret Maple neck Maple f/board Orange headstock face (to match body) Two way truss rod Carbon fibre reinforcement Black 2mm side dots Black block markers Satin lacquer finish Brass nut Medium fretwire Gotoh elephant ear tuners Black shuker logo Swamp ash body Polyester basecoat Bright orange colour coat, gloss topcoat Black s/plate Black control plate Black hardware Black gotoh 203 bridge Delano JMVC 4 FE/M2 pickups Passive electronics Vol, pan, tone Shuker Hiscox hardcase
