  1. Bought a set of “Honey” strings which went badly wrong - no fault of the seller I hasten to add. This seller went above and beyond to remedy the situation, he refunded my money after return of the strings and is now dealing with the manufacturer. Can not recommend highly enough, excellent guy. Thanks.Milo
  2. I've also written to Rick Turner for advice so I'll see if they respond.
  3. Yes I do have some of these but only about 5 or 6, so I may not have a suitable colour, I'll check it out, probably worth buying some more if necessary. I'll let you know how it goes. From YouTube, the pro's seem to set some store by using Superglue ss a filler, then levelling with a shielded razor blade, then sanding and polishing locally With multiple grades of wet/dry. That sounds like the sort of thing I should try on an old piece of polished wood first.
  4. This is a new one on me, I've not heard about the soldering iron trick. I'm a relatively new member, was it the subject of a previous post?
  5. I discovered a horrible gouge on the front of my Rick Turner tonight (see photos). The family were here today but needless to say nobody else knows anything about it- it's been unanimously agreed that consistent with my senility I must have done it without realising it. I'm not that precious about these things, but it couldn't be in a worse place so I'd like to try and mitigate it if possible without spending a fortune, so the question is do I take it to a luthier or have a go myself? I did think about carefully painting in some clear lacquer, but would it need some form of colourant first (the wood looks like spruce)? The one thing I don't want to do is make it worse. Advice from one of you bass genii out there would be most appreciated.
  6. Also what markings on the side of the neck?
  7. Wondering what this weighs and does the neck dive?
  8. Hi, Can this be used on a standard bass i.e. not concerto?
  9. Hi Steve, I'd like to see and try this bass but it's a 5 hour journey from Surrey and current restrictions forbid an overnight stay. I may work out something, otherwise I will have to wait until restrictions are lifted, although I'm looking at more local stuff so may find something in the meantime. I'll get back to you in due course if I'm still looking.

  12. Hi, Yes it sold some weeks ago. Sorry but It won't allow me to edit the title as I have done before on previous topics, so all I could do was to add another post at the bottom which I did back in April. BASS SOLD - PLEASE AMEND OR CANCEL
  13. Thanks TPJ, that's really useful. Also the pics with the bass on it give much more idea of the size. Thanks for taking the trouble to do it.
  14. Any chance you could let me know the height of the flanks that the bass sits on? Just wondering if I would have to retract the end pin in order to stand the bass on it every time.
