  1. Lovely, and fabulously versatile basses (I have an ‘01 one) - technically a Streamer Jazzman though, as the FNA has the Corvette body shape? Bump and GLWTS 🙂 Edit: meant to say a really keen price too for a German Warwick, and IMHO one of their best designs
  2. Really nice facings on that, and seems a very decent price compared with others I’ve seen FS recently
  3. Life is always stranger than fiction- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174703466110?hash=item28ad23567e:g:2EYAAOSwz5pgW187 (Not Johnny’s, but allegedly Betsy B!itch’s, 1980’s hair metal queen. Although more likely “autographed” by her roadie....)
  4. Nice, but I’d want some solid provenance if paying that much. The fleur-de-lys fretboard inlays are pretty distinctive - found the attached pic with a quick search, but all you can really make out is that the inlays aren’t the standard dots. Top band - saw them around 1980 (I think he was playing his Stingray then)
  5. Everybody’s talkin’ - Harry Nilsson
  6. Bought a pair of (non-bass related) walking boots off Alan - smooth easy deal and great communications; as posts above show, he’s a true Basschat legend. Thanks mate!
  7. “Collection only” will keep the final price down. Nice looking ‘Ray!
  8. Already moaned about this in the “Song title association” thread, but I had a ticket to see the Ramones play live in Liverpool (1980?) - had always wanted to see them live - and they cancelled just beforehand to mime “Baby I love you on TOTOP instead.......grrrrrr Re OP - Greg Lake (most people only know for his Christmas hit single) Slade - known for their chart singles, but like The Sweet actually a really heavy band live Landscape - a funky jazz fusion band in the early “80’s, but only known for the synth pop “Einstein a go-go”
  9. The right moment - Gerry Rafferty
  10. Midnight at the lost and found - Meat Loaf
  11. Tobacco Road - The Nashville Teens (Doh - beaten to it again: ignore post)
  12. Decline of the West - British Electric Foundation
  13. No, but I did try it through the sub-octave thingy in my Ashdown bass amp to see if I could make it sound like a bass, and it sounded.......terrible However, it’s really really nice with a touch of chorus and/or reverb.
  14. Re oak as a “tonewood”, a couple of pics of my custom electric mandolin which is made entirely from oak, including the neck (with a strengthening aluminium central spine instead of a truss truss). Heavy, but then - it’s only a mandolin! You’ll recognise the pickups, and brass knobs have been temporarily nicked to go one of my basses......
  15. Spinning the wheel - @TheGreek ‘s cousin George
