  1. Real Nice... Simply P... Natural, Single P, Black Plate and a Thumb Rest...
  2. Yep, that... nice. looking at the pickup and control route, as it the body is 'all yours' how about a smaller more minimal scratch plate? like a nike swoosh, or 'comma' rounded to take in the pup, curved and tapering down for the control and jack...
  3. I think the Jag and other 'odd bodies' offer a psych vibe and deserve something a little stricking, but i like subtle... How about a purpley Aubergine with black guard? If not a gun metal would be nice as long as its darkish and not looking like car primer... again black plate picking up the black blocks...
  4. Tortoise?... C'mon... Black on that, surely.... Not Olly White or some sort of Jazz... Oh well... cultural differences!
  5. @horrorshowbass Interesting... when you say the new big singles run passive are not a lot different sounding to the reverse split coil Mk1 Barts, Is that with Barts also run passive (after the pre failed) or as you remember em when the pre was working? If you tried the Mk1 Barts passive - did they sound the same as with the preamp but with the BMT set centered? And the Blend may effect the pickups different when passive. OE is a AC taper, so half and half when centered... I have swapped mine for a MN taper so both full when centered. Don't suppose you have one of the small knobs going spare? or are you hanging on to em in case you get a replacement pre?
  6. A trip to Hastings nowerdays, you got to remember ya spare change and some bonios for the various dogs on bits of rope... Said a little in jest, it is sad to see those that have fallen on hard times.
  7. Pic would help... Cocktail stick cut flush as packing... then use the same screw?
  8. Hi Al... Stick ya gear in the boot... That doesnt mean 'hide ya Marj in ya shoe'... It's more 'stow ya bass in the trunk'..
  9. Bloody Hell... another one! Its like WW2 all over again.. over here with ya Fancy Fenders, Gum, Hershey Bars... and i'm sure some of ya are wearing nylons!😀😀😀 Enjoy Basschat... and drive on the left! 😀

    Hi Eko... 'All Good' here on basschat... Bad days are OK too, there are whole threads dedicated to em... Beware the DoI (Den of Iniquity)... i wandered in there a while back, strange goings ons... was lost for days... but then again, they do go on a bit!
  11. Hastings is usualy a run on the bike, often with the eldest pillion.... but fun to take the dog.
  12. Hastings... Sunshine bus outing!... Me, other half, youngest, eldest, eldests' mate and Diesel the Dog.... I had Battered Sausage n Chips in the sun and breeze followed by Coffee n Donuts! Diesel had a paddle, a bit of my sausage and a few of my chips.... Great to be out as a family... Thought we'd get out for a simple day before the next element of lockdown ease... when the pubs open it's gonna go mad!
  13. Bloke in Scotland can make em using yours as a template... not cheap... have a search on here for Harley Benton Scratchplate... few have had em made for their P a likes... also lists on eBay...
  14. After the above post on the Donnor Basement... this is now with the eldest and undergoing guitar use. I'm on the nice metal box of an EHX headphone amp... clean, simple and no gimmicks... or the Zoom B1 Four. Wireless would be great! but may end up costing more than the headphone amp or the zoom? And as you say lag may be an issue with playing versus just playback.

    Nice... Black 'n Mapel... Pearly Blocks 'n Pearl Guard. Those black machine heads give the mapel a bit of lift and definition. black bridge would of been tooo much, and i likes a thumb rest. You're gonna get some fans... Take a look at the 'Black Bass' thread and search 'black and mapel' to see the love.

  19. £200 neck.. £100 pickup... Triggers Broom?
  20. I meant Guitar Strap not Jock Strap... 😀
  21. Jackson, owned by Fender... but this is very Ibanez pickups n electronics and neck nut width, and Court with the slight off set version of an Ibanez SR body and the nice modest headstock rather than going pointy. Some nice spec, carbon reinfirced thru neck, compound board - so Charvel Jackson... Nice suble colour, whats not to like for a modern?
  22. mmm... Needs a Studded Strap
  23. Bobo _08 : The Rocker... Fashions may change, but Style Remains... Looks great.
  24. YH potentiometers... try google 1849b104 potentiometer pcb mounted and have a look at the images... https://www.alibaba.com/showroom/pcb-mount-potentiometers-4.html UK supplier may be more of an issue... try bourns for a similar same pin out / dimension?
